Video Card Upgrade Recommendations

I have a Pavilion 763n and would like to run Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit version.  After running the Windows 7 upgrade advisor, the video card does not support the window 7 Direct X 9 requirement.  Does anybody have a recommendation for a new video card for this machine?

Scott, here is a video card that should work for your purpose.  Read the Customer Reviews.  One of the reviewers makes referrence to it working in Win7.  It will not be a barn burner, but you should see some performance gain.

 

Also, if you haven't already done so, I recommend upgrading the memory to 2GB.  This is the maximum for your motherboard.  It would give you another boost in performance.
