Complete noob wanting a new graphics card :D

I'm a complete PC noob. :suicide:

Anyways I think I would like to install a new graphics card.. so my PC can output with a DVI connection, It only has VGA at the moment.

This is a picture of inside my PC if it helps :D

I only bought the PC in January this year so its 'quite' new.

I have been reading various websites, forums and its just so confusing as most places talk about having to upgrade the PSU? also :rolleyes: I think my PSU is only 220-240v, so does anyone know of a good DVI type graphics card that will be OK with this?


I don't use my PC for gaming, I just really want it so i can have my monitor connected by VGA and my HDTV connected using the DVI.

This is the Card i have been looking at..

Since you're not gaming you don't need to change a PSU, a budget PCI-E card £45-£65 will do.

I agree with enablerbro1, the HD2400XT will be fine for what you are after and you can pick one up for around £40/£45.

Right, Will buy that then :cool:

Does it require a power lead to be connected to it? or just runs from the pci slot?

Thanks for all the help.
