Question about Computers & Internet
Buying a video card can be very confusing because there are so many out there and they all claim to be the best, but first we need a little more information about your system. How old is your system, what type of video card slot does your motherboard have (PCI-E x16, AGP) Typically you will find the more money you spend on a graphics card the better, but for most games middle of the road is fine. ATI HD 5850, 6850, 7770, 7850 are all good cards and are not too expensive. even an older nvidia GTX 480 is a great card and you can find them for around $100 now on ebay. Used is okay, but remember you dont have a warranty. GTX 580 & 680 are also getting cheaper as newer technology is coming out also when you choose a video card make sure you power supply will handle the load. Some cards will boot up and work windows fine, but when you start a graphically intense game your pc might shut off or start acting wierd. You will probably be safe with a 600 watt power supply, but its not just the wattage, the amps it will deliver also are a major factor and whether or not it has 1 rail or 2.Shuld be at least bronze certified. I would think a minimum of 38 amps would suffice but if you can go for 42 and up. It better to have to much than not enough. Name brands such as corsair thermaltake and antec are good.

SOURCE: GRAPHICS CARD
The P5PE-VM has an AGP 8x expansion slot. So AGP 8x graphics cards would be compatible. AGP is old and got replaced by PCI Express. But you can still buy AGP cards. the Nvidia 7800 is the best AGP card you can get, because Nvidia stopped creating the technology for AGP cards with this one.

you will need a better gxf card, preferably something better than AGP cards. But since thats what your pc has try getting a 7000 series card. ex 7300gs
