I have just bought a small camcorder that records video in HD but my computer will not run the HD files do I require another Graphic card? The computer has a Asus P5G41T-MLX2/GB Motherboard with a 3.20 Gh Inter Pentium Dual-Core 64Kb Primary Memory Cache 64 Bit ready Processor.4Gb of ram is fitted. I am not into graphic cards so I would be greatful for any help anyone can give me on what to buy.

If this is your motherboard Mobo and Belarc is showing what you have posted then it looks as though you have not got a separate graphics card and you are using the on-board graphics. So the question is how much do you have to spend as you will need to buy a card. If your not a gamer then something like this will do Graphics or this graphics but there are plenty of others, it depends on what you want to pay etc.

If you have any problems do not hesitate to ask, it will probably look a little daunting the first time.
