As a gaming machine your video card options aren't fantastic, you're limited to at best a mid-range graphics card from AMD or NVIDIA. If you still want to have HDMI your cards are even more limited. Your best choice is the HD 2600 PRO Sonic from Palit, it offers a little bit of punch thanks to it coming pre-overclocked and also carries a native HDMI port; the other benefit to it being a single slot card is that it helps keep air flow restriction to a minimum.
What we have done today is test the SG33G5 Pro with the standard on-board G33 video and also with the HD 2600 PRO installed. If the PRO isn't enough punch and HDMI isn't important to you we have also seen how the HD 2600 XT Sonic from Palit goes which is one of the best mid-range cards available on the market at the moment.

3DMark05 is now the second latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and above.
For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here
Straight away we can see that the onboard G33 graphics isn't capable of much compared to that of the HD 2600 PRO and HD 2600 XT.
