Windows 7: Does anyone have any idea about how to choose the correct video card?

Does anyone have any idea about how to choose the correct video card?

My sister owns an old Dell B110 desktop; I'm attempting to upgrade the OS from XP to Windows 7. I downloaded the windows 7 upgrade advisor and found out that all I needed to upgrade was the video card. The current card is an: "Integrated Intel Extreme graphics 2 w/64mb". Her computer uses pci slots, Pent 4 etc. She is not a gamer; All I want to do is buy a comparable card that will be compatible with Windows 7. Can anyone help me to do this? Thank you.

As far as memory(system) goes, you will need a min of 2gb mem, 4 gb is optimal, it will run with 1gb but not well at all. It pretty old hardware, I wouldn't throw too much $$$$$ into this.......

the chipset will take 4gb I see it is a Intel® 865GV Chipset I believe

Welcome........

oh I think it has pcie expansion for graphics, if thats the case see these:

For 99.00 you can do a memory upgrade (if needed)and graphics card. This is a very old machine, depends on what his sister uses it for.......
