video is on is on the motherbord. I'm trying to play some
games on my computer but my system is lacking on good
Video card. I have attached information aout my computer.
Any help will be appreciated.

The nVidia cards listed are ones that aren't available at retail. I'm not sure what the retail equivalents are, but they may be equivalent to Geforce 210 and 220 cards.

Versions of the Radeon 4350 listed are readily available.

They are all low-profile low power cards.

As the X3910 has a 220W power supply, you don't want to ask much of it. You may not have an easy option to upgrade that power supply, as small form factor machines like this one don't use indsutry standard ATX style PSUs.

Making the X3910 into a tolerable gaming machine may be difficult. It wasn't built for that purpose.

Thank you for the information.
I didn't think about the PSU.
Going to look into your recommendations.
I wonder if I could upgrade The PSU ?

Thanks again.
