Compatible Graphics/Video cards?
what are some good compatible gaming graphics/video cards available for my HP a6522f PC?

Specs for the Pavilion a6522f state it has a PCI-E x16 slot, so the entire range of PCI-Express video cards is open to you.
The best low-cost card is the Radeon 4670 for $70
For around $110 you can get 2X faster cards like the low-power edition of the GeForce 9800GT, and Radeon 4770:
More powerful cards like the Radeon 4850 and GTS 250 require a good 450W power supply, minimum. So unless you're going to upgrade the psu as well, I'd stick to the previously mentioned cards.
With your CPU, there's no point buying anything above the GTS250/Radeon 4850 level- you probably wouldn't see any improvement from a more expensive card like the GTX 260 and Radeon 4870 because your processor just isn't fast enough.

If it fits the slot on the mobo then ...
