    Thanks for the answers so far. Hopefully I have found the info you want: System is E-System Ei 314, with a Foxconn RC4107MA-RS2H motherboard.

    http://www.techstore.co.uk/detail_116644... this is the graphics card I am looking at. Obviously I am open to all advice.

Usually the manufacturer's site will have some sort of list, but really, you can generally figure it out for yourself. First, find out what kind of graphics card slot your motherboard has. If it is relatively new, it will probably have PCIe (other options are AGP or just PCI). Next, find out how much power the card you want will draw, and figure out if your Power Supply Unit (PSU) will have enough juice to run it. If you have a card in mind, just post a link to the card, and one to your system (or if you built it yourself, to the site for your motherboard and PSU), and I'll do the math :)

But honestly, short of slot type and power supply, there isn't a whole lot that will actually prevent you from choosing whichever card you want.

    Checked both, and you should have no problem with that. The only possible issue is power supply, but that card will probably be fine, as it doesn't look like it will draw a huge amount of power. Have fun!

What graphic cards will work with this motherboard that are windows 7 compatible?


All graphic cards now on sale (even the few ones still using the AGP interface) are Win7 compatible but i doubt that your motherboard and its slow memory and miserable processor will be capable of handling it .

Graphics card compatibility with mother board


All PCI-E Graphic card can be used on your motherboard. I suggest nvidia 9500gt 1GB DDR2 128bit because of your power supply. nvidia 9600 & higher models has min. requirement of 400W. if you need higher graphic card model, you need to upgrade your power supply.
