I recommend u use ati fire graphics at ati store.or u can use nvidia geforce 9300xm.i dind't know how much it will cost because the new processor graphics are expensive. i have tried all that and its works on my computer but before u buy, check ur system requirements and graphics processor requirements because i know it eats lots of your memory and ur processor.

Hi Brisas,
The Gigabyte video card uses ATI's chips (heart of the card). It shouldn't matter that you install a newer driver for the Radeon X300 series video card. It is backwards compatible.
In other words it still will run with Win98SE.
Latest X300 series video driver, click on the link.
http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp

If you realy think you need a driver for Win98SE than download a older version for the radeon card. The link below is very old & may still run you're X300 SE video card. Click on the link. (Take you're pick of old radeon drivers).

Good luck!
