Need some help upgrading PC


Oct 9, 2011
I bought this computer for quite cheap. Now it isn't for gaming or anything heavy so please don't tell me to get a new PC or what ever :) I just want it for web browsing and playing HD video on YouTube etc. Just light things.

Currently the specs are:
HP Compaq DX2200
Intel Celeron D 2.20GHz
Integrated graphics are based on the ATI Radeon X300 GPU with full OpenGL 2.0 and DirectX 9.0 support

Now because the chipset is a ATI Radeon® XPRESS 200 am right in saying it will support AMD processors with socket 939? Specifically an AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+ @2.2Ghz?

Also should I upgrade the graphics card or will the integrated be enough? Considering all I want is to play HD video. I also don't to upgrade my PSU so it will have to be a low profile card.

Thanks for all the help
