I am trying to get an upgraded video card that is compatibile with my motherboard (I use the computer for video editing). I recently hooked the computer up to my HD TV 720i using the PC input. The problem is I'm limited to 1024 X 768 and it doesn't give me enough screen space to edit video. I am going from VGA to VGA. Is there a video card that is compatible with my motherboard and will give me HDMI out or at least DVI out? Please keep in mind that I am also using the Matrox RTX100 video editing card. It there any hope for being able to use my TV with higher resolution than VGA?

Sounds like your computer has an integrated video card and the game is looking for an extended graphics card. This type of card plugs into the motherboard via the AGP, PCI, or PCIE slots. Depending on the type of video card and computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply when you put the card in. If this is a laptop there is no good way to upgrade the video card.
Definitely. But every computer's motherboard has limitations. It depends on what you're trying to upgrade. You can upgrade the CPU, Memory, Video Card, Sound Card, Harddrive Capacity, Optical Drive, etc.
at the bare minimum, you can upgrade it with a PCI graphics card. That would plug into one of your spare white PCI slots, and they make those with atleast 256mb of memory ( When shopping for one, dont confuse a PCI video card with a PCI express card) I couldn't find enough info on what exact board you have, as they used several, but many had a brown AGP memory slot, which is a better option for you. Keep in mind, also, that if you upgrade the video card and memory , you might need to upgrade your power supply too, due to the higher current requirements of the new card and memory.
If all else fails, bring your tower to a computer shop, and they will usually tell you what you need for free, with hopes to sell a upgrade!
Friend if your video card has lower memory or capacity especially 256
ram below then you need to upgrade or replace your video card with the
higher one. then if it is already above then try to upgrade or update
you software on line.
upgrading your video card. There are probably
only two basic reasons to upgrade a video card:
1. Your current card has poor performance.or You just "want" faster video performance.
If you think your current video card is performing poorly, there
are a couple of things you should do prior to upgrading your video
card. The first thing your should do is give your computer a "tune-up".
This involves things like running Defrag, Scandisk, virus checkers
etc. (for further explanation of tune-up procedures, .
Once you are certain that your computer is performing properly,
and your computer is still experiencing slowdowns in video intensive
programs, like games or graphic design programs, then the second thing
you may need to do is upgrade your computer's main system memory.
Inadequate amounts of system RAM will choke your computer's performance.
That's why I recommend all newer computers have at least 512 MB of
NewEgg.com still carries 4X/8X Radeon 9250 cards in the $30 U.S. range. These will perform better than your GeForce 2 but your machine is still going to choke on the new computer games. The PCI Express based video cards on the new systems outperform the older AGP cards by something like a factor of 10.
