HI sir/ madam.

i am using DL-G41MXE mother board with Intel Pentium e2140 processor.
with 2gb ram. can you please suggest me what type of GPU Graphic card is compatible with my PC.

RE: compatibility

Manufacturer's specs (it's a PDF file, so bear that in mind in case you see it trying to download a file):

Graphics card slot:
1* PCIe2.0 x16 slot

So you want to look for anything that's a PCI Express x16 graphics card pretty much. If I remember correctly, all or most are backwards compatible, but at a minimum, you want a "PCIe 2.0" card.

As at least a starting point:

Then filter/search according to your budget, preferences, what type power supply you have, etc.

Also, if you only have 2GB RAM, you probably want to look at upgrading the RAM as well if possible. 2GB is really low nowadays unless your system is not doing anything much, and if you're buying a graphics card, I'm guessing you're wanting to play games, b/c that board already has onboard graphics by Intel which is decent enough for non-graphic-intensive tasks.

RE: compatibility

compatible with motherboard, but look at the power supply and what is required for a card you are looking at, you may need to upgrade the power supply also.

RE: compatibility

It's often a losing game updating an old computer. New video card leads to new power supply and then throw in more RAM.
