Good!! If you don't do anything to intense graphics wise you should be able to find a PCI-E card for fairly cheap.

HDMI is better if your tv has a hook up

I'm not sure of what you had. My guess is it was just a basic PCI express video card, you could probably get one for around 60-80bucs. Im about to leave ill help you out more when I get home or tomorrow at work.

If you are just bothered about porn and not video games then something like an ATI Radeon HD3450 will work for you. You should be able to get one on eBay for around $30-$40 shipped.

so i dont need a hardcore one? all i do is watch fap material and regular movies. i don't do the games on computers. so a basic one would work fine? would other video cards fill in the slot the same way?

Yes PCI express card would work for you. As long as it is not low profile. You don't even need one if you are OK with the onboard video setup.
