    My current Graphics card is the ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics. I run on windows 7 and my computer was made by hewlett-packard and I wanted to upgrade my desktops Graphics card to something that can play games from current to say..2006 at a decent speed. The highest I can currently go is £28.96.

    If any one can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    $45 isn't going to buy you a video card that can play current games acceptably, that's a joke.

    You'll need to drop at LEAST $100 to get into something that borders on usable.

    That sounds good Since I dont want to see every single individual pixel, just for the game to run smoothly.

    You also have to make sure your HP's power supply is up to the challenge of a more powerful video card. HP is known for putting bare minimum power supplies in their systems. I'd hate to see you spend the money on upgrading your video card and your power supply goes kablooey.
