pc games

Hi, I am looking for some info on how big a game card I can put in my comp. I have a hp a375c with 3.0ghz,512mb pc2700, 160 GB, DVD+RW/CD-RW, DVE-ROM drive16x max speed and Nvidia geforce FX 5200. I went to a pc store and bought some ram, 1 gig?,and a nvidia 6200 game card. According to them this was the best card that would be supported by the mother board. My neighbor across the street says I should be able to put a bigger game card in my comp. He says I have to get a faster clock speed? game card. Is this at all possible for me to do? Thanks for any Help. Dont get to complicated for me please.

I believe that's the GeForce 7950 GT...

I believe the best card the HP a375C supports is the GeForce 7950 GT, though I should note that, with a computer from 2003, you will be unable to play most newer games. Some games will result in pixelated images and jerky animation while others will not load at all. There are still plenty of games to choose from that are older and/or less graphically-intensive, but you should be aware that even with the maximum RAM and graphics card upgrades available for that computer, your options are still limited. Keep that in mind when making any further investments.
