    I just got a *free* computer. CPU is an X2 AMD 5000. Dumped Vista and
    installed Win7_64bit

    All I had to do was replace the dead power supply and brought the RAM up
    to 4 gigs

    It has a low end on-board nVidia chip that is not capable of Direct X.

    I gave the machine to my wife and she will use it for Photoshop
    exclusively. The machine will not be used for games or video.

    Seems to work ok but wondering if it would be worth it to get a better
    video card, would there be any advantage?

    You'd be better served by adding more RAM.

    Check the system requirements of the photoshop version you plan on using
    to see if your video card is OK.

    Photoshop seems to be working OK

    I checked the card and it actually does have Direct X just no GPU
    so it should be fine

    I am going to order some more RAM and assign at least 4 gigs to
    Photoshop. It seems to be working pretty well the way it is now...but
    RAM is pretty cheap
