CCTV Camera Pros response:

All of the specs look fine except that both Geovision and NUUO recommend using a nvidia or ATI graphics card instead of using on board video embedded into the motherboard of the PC. It looks that your PC does not have a separate graphics card so you should plan on adding one. When you do that, be aware that the 275 watt power supply may not be sufficient for the system after you add the graphics card and DVR card. CCTV Camera Pros builds systems with a minimum 400 watt power supply.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank You.
