I have acquired an HP desktop with I believe a Pentium III @ 800 MHz and 128 DDR ram.  Can I install a faster video card?  If so do I have to upgrade anything else?  I want it to run some of the newer games,(Halo,Ghost Recon,Armed and Dangerous).

If you have an AGP slot, and I think most PIII motherboards do (but check anyway), you can get a Radeon or an nVidia board to suit your budget.  Look at the benchmarks here to see how they do: http://www20.tomshardware.com/graphic/20031229/vga-charts-03.html

One step below the top is usually a good value, so a Radeon 9600 Pro or a Geforce FX5700 would be good choices.
