Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
That only depends on how much money you want to spend really. The thing that nees to be matched with a video card is the power supply. Look at the specs on the video card, and it will recommend a certain wattage of power supply. Or, you can start by looking what wattage power supply you do have, and then google "what video cards will my xxxWatt power supply support"...or something like that.
Some other things to consider with a video card..Do you want to do anything special? Hook up 2 monitors at once? Get one with 2 DVI (or vga, whatever type connectors your monitor has) connectors.
Also, video cards come with different amounts of memory on them. This memory is usable on your system just like your ram. It's just something to be aware of...256Mb, or 1Gb, I'm not sure if they are up to 2Gb yet, it's been a year since I bought one...but that's another thing to look at when buying one.
But for compatibility, it's just the power.
