    It would be better to know what you use your system for. Do you game and if so what games do you play?

    I play ragnarok online, the onboard video plays the game fine but I want something more.

    whats a good to best video card that i can use on my mobo without it being bottle necked by the old pci-e?

    my on board video get lessthan 150 on passmark. I am looking for a video card that are near 3000 or more on passmark.

    thanks

    I'd say whatever you can find for cheap. I grabbed some 7750 cards from a local e-cycler for $1, there's a bunch of options available if you don't have a specific requirement.

    Is there a gpu that does not require separate power connector because my power supply does not have a 6 pin or 8pin connector.

    thanks

    I would say something like a hd6570 or even an r7 240.

    Thank you guys for all your help. I picked up a gtx 1050 on offerup for $50. Now waiting for the lolex to pcie adapter to arrive. ^^

    not sure if the 1050 can run full speed on my mobo though, but its cheap. ^^

    Nice, that's a bonus, pretty good card for 1080p. IIRC that card does not require power connectors.
