Windows 7
graphic card recommendation...

Hi guys!

Currently I'm working on an rather old PC with an onboard graphic-chip. I just installed Win 7 and it works great - the only problem is, areo isn't working on this machine... and now I'm looking for an cheap graphic card that meets the necessary requirements for aero. I don't play games or use graphic programs, so I really don't need a good graphic card - all I want is areo to work. So, if there are any recommendations on which graphic card I can buy, I'd very much appreciate any hints!

many thanks in advance!

Hi yuluka....

according to your boards specs you have an AGP GFX port, id reccomend one of these..

HD3650 , this is a DX10 card which will run Aero all day long...... you'll also be good for some very light gaming.
