W7 entry level video card

I am attempting to upgrade my niece’s PC running XP to W7 and although her video card can handle W7 the driver does not allow for the W7 Aero features.

She has a 64bit GIGABYTE P4 Titan 848P with 2GB RAM and her current Video card is an nVIDIA GeForce FX 5200.

She would only need something at entry level, something that could handle all W7 features and you tube easily.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

No. That video card goes in a PCI-E slot.
You need to find an AGP 8x video card for the mobo your niece has.

It looks like it is an AGP video card which severely restricts your options. look at the cards around $50 on this page

In my internet search to find a Radeon HD 3450 online in Australia I found a sale on a VTX ATI Radeon HD5670 DVI/HDMI 1GB Video card which makes is cheaper than the Radeon HD 3450.

I checked their benchmarked postions and the HD 5670 is naturally ranked much higher. The question now is can my nieces system handle the better video card even though it is still entry level.
