    Hi there, i hope this is this right place to post, i know the basics about computers and i need a little bit of help. I dont have alot of money so please understand i cant just buy a "New" computer.

    I currently have a HP Pavillion a1525a.

    Here's the specs from the HP site.

    System Specs are : 2.8ghz Core 2 Duo, 2GB DDR2 RAM (which i upgraded) & Integrated ATI Raedon graphics card.

    I have the PCI Express x16 slot but i want to make sure i will be able to run a Geforce on my motherboard, Here's my motherboard specs.

    Manufacturer: ECS
    Motherboard Name: RC410-M
    HP/Compaq motherboard name: Asterope3-GL8E

    Like i said i dont have alot of money so i cant afford to get the wrong geforce card.

    i was looking at this one...this is pushing my limit but ive read its decent for the price.

    NVIDIA GEFORCE 8600 GT 8600GT 1GB PCI-E Video Card


    So if this will work with my motherboard, do i just plug into the PCI slot and it will work?I just want to play GTA San Andreas thats all. thanks i hope someone can help me.
