pcv-rx650 video upgrade

I need to up date my sony vio pcv/rx650 to dvi/s-video/component output if possible. I tried to use a E-geforce6200 but the plug did not fit the connection on the sony mother board. Is there any internal video card that will work with this unit or will I need to go with a usp video output adaptor

I chatted with the online sony tech support and they as much as told me that they do not support any third party and would not recomend one. they also told me that if I wanted the added features I would need to upgrade the entire desk top to a nother model. ( well not in those words but the meaning was clear.

I think what VAPCMD meant was that you can find the information you need about your computer by looking on the Sony website. Unfortunately, Sony's main website is one of the worst in terms of being able to finding computer support and documentation.

The VAIO PCV-RX650 has one AGP 4X video slot and three PCI expansion slots. Note that PCI is not the same type of slot as PCI Express, and PCI Express cards will not work in an AGP or PCI slot.

Confirm that you already have an nVIDIA
