Recommended Graphics Card?

Myth of Echelon

Recommended Posts

Let's see here. I have Windows XP, a Gigabyte GA-M61VME-S2 motherboard (supports PCI-E), AMD Athlon 7550 Dual-Core (2.51GHz), 2.93GB RAM and my current graphics card is a "NVIDIA GeForce 6100 nForce 400" with 256MB.


I need a new graphics card that is compatible, can stream a minimum of 720p HD and have a HDMI-out (for a 1080p monitor).


I realize this is an awkward set-up I have, but I thought I'd give it a shot. Price is not an obstacle, and if possible I'd want a HDMI-in also, but I realize that's unlikely.

I believe that your motherboard is an mATX or micro ATX board, so as long as you don't have an mATX case, then you should be fine with any cards as long as your power supply can take it.

Also, if you have no price range, I'd go for something better than the GTX 260.
