can any one recommend a suitable card

if it will be any help

I'm afraid the windows system properties screen is pretty useless. CPU-Z is a much better bet and the mainboard tab should tell you which graphics interface you've got.

Also, check which type of celeron you've got. If it's a Northwood one then it may not be able to handle HD even with graphics card assistance as they were very slow.
Maybe if you can give your PC model no i can tell you what you need- i've got a £35 hd card going on ebay- you might be in luck :thumbsup:
