Video card with DVI output

By cg1976

  1. I recently bought a new LCD flat screen for my old Dell, but the video card only comes with VGA output. I'm looking for a basic video card with DVI output to improve the display which looks a bit crappy. I don't really want to spend more than £50. I don't do much gaming - just the occasional Civilisation IV which is a bit jerky at present so would be nice if it was a bit smoother.

    Attached are screengrabs of my specs except for the power supply - there's nothing printed on the unit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Craig.

    No need for a new PSU ,

    You need a video card with both HD-15 and DVI outputs,

    99 percent of all video cards you buy now adays have that.

    You want a newer video card ,

    Just get a 6th generation nvidia or ati ,,, for example geforce 6200 or 6600 or ATI x700 or so,

    You can buy a card for fifty dollars , Just double check it has DVI ,, which it should, a old PCI video card most probably wont have this, Soo you just need a AGP 4x compatible ,, A geforce 6600 should do just fine. gl,
