Well do you have a good processor or a crappy one? Are you looking for PCI-e or AGP? The 6800le is the best for the money in AGP. The x800 is the best for $200 in the PCI-e catagory though. 6800le http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814122212 x800 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814161140

go to run and type dxdiag, it shows your proccesor and its speed so just post what it says. And if u can for just 30 more bucks u can get an X800 PRO its much better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102496

that should run it just fine..... EDIT: Do you know what your power supply is? Cause the vid card need a 300W or more powersupply..... The X800 PRO had a mail in rebate for 30 bucks back so i thought that was pretty good. nvm about the powersupply i saw the specs on the HP pc and it has 300W powersupply. your good to go mate winkx.gif
