I am assuming by video system you are talking about upgrading to different more powerful video adapter (card) in your computer What video adapter is best for you depends a lot on how you will use your computer Viewing movies, playing 3D games, or typing text documents make different demands on a card The amount of video memory or if it has an onboard processor (accelerator)are some of the factors that affect performance

Below are listed three of the many web sites that offer reviews of various video adapters Try going to these sites, the reviews could help you answer your question.

The DSL connection makes no difference on your choice of video adapters.
