Hi I currently have an old PC which I have done some upgrades to in order to improve performance.
The PC is a Dell Dimension 2400 Series with a processor: Intel P4 CPU 3.06GHz. The motherboard of the machine is Dell Computer Corp. 0G1548 (Microprocessor) and here is a link to its specs: dell 0g1548 mainboard specs.
I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and upgraded the RAM to 2GB. The PC runs absolutely fine and smooth on the OS which is a delight but now I would like to upgrade its graphics/video card yet unable to decide which is the right one. I do not want to do any heavy gaming on the machine but use it to watch and stream HD videos from either the HDD or youtube etc.
