    Computer Help!

    I'm needing two components for my computer - but dont really know what to go for as theres so much on the market!

    1. I need a new graphics card as my old one went on the blink so now i'm running on-board graphics and its horrible. But i'm also not sure what type of graphics card i need, is there a way of finding out?

    2. Also i need a soundcard - not really too bothered how great it is, and i dont wanna spend huge amounts on this - equally i want it to be better than just the onboard stuf i've got just now.

    Anyone help?

    should be able to pick uop a PCI sound card for about 15-20.

    Also what do you use your PC for, games etc? and whats your budget?

    I'm guessing the slot you have is AGPx8?

    Need more info before we can help on the graphics card mate, but a budget PCI sound card can be had for around £10

    Apparently its an AGP Graphics Card that i need if that helps?
    I use the computer for a bit of gaming but nothing too serious - the current one is a 128mb.

    As for looking for soundcards - there's hundreds on ebay, what am i looking for, I.E what makes one better than the other?

    Cheers guys, pretty clueless with this stuff!
