Okay here's what I know. I bought this computer in September 2005 so that's about 6 months old. So I guess it could go either way then right?
I'm not quite sure how to find my mother board model number and manufacturer. My first instinct was to go into the device manager. After browsing through it, the only mobo related item I could find was labled Motherboard resources. Under the detals section it read ACPI\PNP0C02\1. I'm not sure if that means anything. Also in the device manager section they had a separate section for "display adapters" and under it was mine; could this mean that it is in fact separate?
Tomorrow I plan on taking off the case and taking a few pictures for you guys to see what's what, which I believe will probably prove more useful than this.
The reason I choose that card was because my cousin suggested it, as that's what he is thinking of getting.
Oh, and before I forget, I need this card to support "Alpha blending," which, after doing so research, I found to be the way video cards handle degrees of transparency. I hope my pictures tomorrow can prove useful. Thanks for helping, I appreciate it because as you can see, I have no idea what I'm doing
@Kllrnohj: What does SOL mean? I hope it doesn't mean something like surely out of luck
