I want to get a new graphic card for my Tulip Vision Line DT 5/120. The Memory type in the computer is Edo (Simm). I think the the graphic card type is PCI but I am not sure if the graphic card can have DDR ram or SDRAM etc, I was wondering if the graphic card has to have Edo ram since the computer's ram type is Edo. PLEESE HELP ME! :confused:

Here is some of the computers Specifications:

A good basic PCI video card with any type of memory, up to about 32 MB will work. You should be able to get a good used one for just a few bucks.
It would be absoluely absurd to spend more than $15 to get a quality used card. We give them away here at our shop... for cost of postage.
Ask a repair shop if they have any good old ones laying around, then download new drivers for it.
