If this is your motherboard:

Motherboard Specifications, PTGD-LA (Goldfish3) - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

your choices are limited. It has no dedicated graphics card slots, so the best that you could do would be a PCI card. Most cards at this time are PCI-E (PCI-Express), which are entirely incompatible regardless of the similar-sounding name.

What are you using for drivers now? There are no Windows 7 drivers for your onboard (915) graphics. The newest drivers are for XP, and don't support Aero Glass.

Here's a list of some PCI cards available at Newegg (if you're in the US or Canada): - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics / Video Cards, PCI, DirectX 10, DirectX 10.1, DirectX 11, Retail

The cards are usually much more expensive than their PCI-E equivalents. Whether it'd be worthwhile to play a game from 2005, only you can say.

That's my motherboard, between I want a graphic card that is compatible to my pc, I don't just want to throw there a random graphic card that will mess up my pc.

Is that link you put there, can my pc handle it (the graphic card).

With that old processor (Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.06GHz, ~3.1GHz), whatever you buy is a waste of money. Save your money for a better upgrade.

I will have to agree with OldMX. IMHO spending money on that computer would be a waste of money. You have less than 2 gigs of ram, Windows 7 really prefers more. Use this from Microsoft.
