hd 4650/4670/5670 or nvidia geforce 240gt gddr5 or 220gt with ddr3 or gddr3, both v-cards listed use low power so no psu upgrade required.

Sorry,
It states...
Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE
*Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed.
•Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE
•Also supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards*
NOTE: *Either integrated graphics or the PCI Express x16 slot are usable at one time; they are not usable concurrently.

Does that mean I can install another video card and plug in monitor to either or? What does intergrated video mean?

look @ the system specs. There is one pci-e x16 slot available, those v-cards i mentioned can be installed in pci-e x16 slot.

That means u can't use both igp or onboard video and v-card @ the same time.

What is intergrated video or igp http://www.techterms.com/definition...

o ok. I know I can't run it but I was asking if they can both be "installed" on the motherboard. Which I know the answer to now.
I was looking for the video card you mentioned.
it was about $100. (a little less) for a Gforce GT 240 DDR5 512mb PCI 2.0 express.
would this run fine on my comp correct?

sorry i need a little more help...
im on newegg.com and of course i see the same product all made by different company... which one is good and would run great with my comp? BTW, I just want to play starcraft 2 smoothly. Current video card blows and runs its choppy.
I am looking at the 1GB and 512MB EVGA card. it looks like the 512mb gets better reviews. Please let me know what you recommend. Thanks!
