Hello and welcome Akash mate depends on what you intend doing with the machine and how much you can spend.

Myself I have a NVidia Ge Force GTX 650 in my Ivy Bridge I don't game but do appreciate the slightly better quality graphics. Not expensive either ($135 out here) but it is basic. The specs on this I think are the minimum you need and while you are about it I'd be getting some more RAM (4GB would be good) stuck in my friend - is your machine a tad on the slow side??

John you might want to look into the specs on that motherboard,

http://downloadmirror.intel.com/1520...chProdSpec.pdf

Amy memory upgrade is going to cost far more than the entire computer is currently worth. Same can be said of any video card upgrade as the board only has PCI slots available.

Now with that said and if the OP still wants to spend the money, then I would look for the cheapest (likely used) Geforce 6200 PCI card I could find.

Looks like it has an AGP slot.

That's quite limiting as well, but at least 210Akash could hope for better performance than with PCI.

(Note to the unfamiliar: most graphics cards at the moment are PCI Express. While that sounds similar, they are completely physically incompatible with PCI.)

You're right it does look that way, missed it. That said I don't think an AGP card would be a good idea as they cost more than a PCI card, and are harder to find as well. It also opens another can of worms if you can't get a working AGP driver installed first so that the video card driver can install. On a board that old that has zero Windows 7 support and likely have to try and get the last XP driver to cooperate, if a card has to be bought better to go PCI to avoid any AGP issues.
