I'm surprised to hear your card is not compatible, Ralph. Virtually any ATI or nVidia video graphics card should work.
If your card includes pixel shading, you'll have access to the advanced video effects. But, other than that, any 128 meg or more ATI or nVidia card should work. Particularly because you're using an older eMachine, I wouldn't recommend investing too much in a huge, state of the art card.

Rbueling2, I looked up the eMachines support site for your computer (http://www.e4me.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T-Series&model=T6524) and found that your computer actually does have a PCI-E x16 slot available. This opens the door for a whole lot of options. They don't list the power supply capacity for your computer, but, considering it is an eMachines, it is not likely to be very high. Considering this, I would stay away from any graphics card that requires its own power connection from the power supply.
Thank you both for your quick replies!
-> Christopher: I feel pretty silly right now... Thanks a lot for the info, much appreciated. Would you recommend a specific PCI-Express card for this type of older machine for Adobe Premiere?
