Hi there,

The  z556 uses a PCI-Express NVIDIA GeForce 6600, you can do just fine if you can get a 8500,8600 or 9500.

One thing to keep in mind is don't get anything too powerful, they will have hight power requirements.

Hope that helps

i would suggest this card:

you can get it for 32.99 with free shipping and on top of that there is a 13.00 mail in rebate so youll only pay 19.99 with free shipping.  that is a steal if you need this card to only run on that entertainment pc.  it can play games at low settings, but since you want it for your HTCP your good to go.
