    Video card replacement

    Hi

    I have a old PC with a Gigabyte-GA-P35-DS3R motherboard. The Nvidia 8800 GTX has gone faulty and I am looking for a cheap replacement. It does not have to be high performance as I only use it for streaming iplayer.
    Would appreciate replacement recommendations.

    Regards
    John

    I would grab one of these. Right around $20 and it has HDMI.

    Newegg will ship to New Zealand. They also have a New Zealand version of the site.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I did try the NZ site but they did not have the item. Looks like the US site has sold out of the item.
    Thanks again for the info

    It should work fine. The GT710 is my go-to card for older systems when the user needs analog video output. I've had no issues on Intel systems from that era.
    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.
