PCI Graphics card


Im using F-9 on 2.4 Ghz Processor & 1.25GB RAM.
At times with word processor or Mozilla Firefox, system processor shows 100% usage XOrg taking 40-50% of the processor.Still the RAM is being utilized to not more than 50%.

Do I require a Graphics card?? If so, can u suggest me any Graphics card for PCI slot(not PCI-E)??

Are you sure it's CPU usage and not just wait time loading from disk? A word processor is generally one of the lightest-loading programs for any computer.

In any case, this shouldn't have anything to do with your graphics.
