    Can I make a suggestion?

    Post your computer's specs for us, so we can suggest the best card FOR YOUR SYSTEM.

    Specifically, make/model of your motherboard. Ideally, can you give us a link to the homepage with the specs?

    But also,

    1. what is your CPU
    2. how much ram do you have, and what speed is it?
    3. what make/model is your power supply and how many watts is it rated at? (your current psu may not be enough to power a newer card)

    Let's start there.

    Yep. Looks like you have an AGP8x slot, the only question now is whether or not your current PSU will be enough to power a newer card.

    Follow the link I gave you (two posts above) for a comparison of all the AGP8x cards against each other to help you chose which one.
