There are no 4x AGP video cards with 512MB memory configuration.

Recommended that you use something like Nvidia Rivia TNT2 32MB 4x AGP , yes it's way old but a good match for the 4X agp bus.

If you use an 8x AGP card it may work but you will not be taking full advantage of the card.

Your motherboard only supports AGP. You can use any AGP graphics card that supports up to 4X AGP. nVidia and ATI make great cards as well as other manufacturers that mak boards using nVidia and ATI chipsets. I would recomend a card with at least 512MB of memory onboard. I hope this helps.

Myn mother board is amd i will play games but some games would ask for graphic card but i hesitate to use it is there anyway to play games with out using graphic card


Some games will work fine with the on-board graphics card, but the newer and/or more powerful games require a more powerful graphics card. These will not run unless you install a good graphics card in your machine. Sorry.

HI this is pradeep iam using ASROCK motherboard processer AMD Anthlon(TM)XP2600+ for this motherboard which graphic card can i use my problem is i brought dell 24inch moniter ST2420L but graphic...


Asrock K7VM3 mother board with AMD Athlon 2600+ processor.
The Motherboard is having a AGP slot which says to use AGP with 4X and 1.5 V
Can someone suggest the market products available
when I contact the technical team of Asrock. they responded as below:
The AGP slot on K7VM3 is the standard AGP x8 slot , as long as the VGA card you want to buy is standard AGP VGA card , K7VM3 can support the standard AGP VGA card.
Or , you can double check your question with your VGA card vender before you buy it .

Can i put a graphics card for my intel D915GVWB mother board?


You can not use PCI-EXPRESS graphics cards. Only AGP 2/4X Graphics Cards Supported ( 1.5V Only) You should look for This kind of Graphics cards.

I recommend , You must try changing your Motherboard with processor and buy a graphics card ( powerful one) to play these games. Otherwise You wont enjoy any of those games you mentioned.

n.b : a common PCI-E card has 16x speed where you cannot use more than 4x on your system.

What is the best graphics card for a K8M800-M7A


Lagacy board? AM2 Socket? If so it has an AGP slot. Advanced Grapics Port. Go to;  Newegg.com  type in AGP card and you will see lots of hits. Or go to : Tigerdirect.com  I believe that they have a Raydon 9550 on sale right now which is a really good compromise between price and preformance for you present machine. Unfortunately the higher the price the better the card. The amount and type of RAM on the card seems to be the biggest factor.     These are all my thoughts only.    Most gaming machines, now days, use one or more  PCIe16  slots with multiple cards tied together. The AGP proceeded this.

If you are using the on board graphics this will cause problems due to your 1 gb of ram being shared with the graphics and other things , for most of todays games that will cause many problems, I would suggest getting a video Card or playing older games that the on board graphics can support. The restart usually is a sign the the graphics capability is to low for the game, altho you can tweak your computer to some extent you will always still have problems. Now adding extra ram can always help but still i would recommend getting a video card first that your computer supports.

Hope this helps, let me know if i can further help,,,,larry

Regarding graphics


Hey bhoot,

Are you asking about what graphic card you should get? If so, I recommend anything that's geforce 7600GT+.

I recommend nVidia because a lot of games are built for nVidia. I'm not saying ATI is bad, they are good. It's just that you'll run into artifact issues (where you see tears in graphics) with some games if you go with ATI.

Go to sites like, www.newegg.com, or www.tigerdirect.com to look for a card.

If you have PCI Express, then go with that. If it's AGP, then go with that. It's all based on what your board supports.

If you're looking to run F.E.A.R, Qauke, or Battlefield, you won't need much. I would recommend at least 128mb video on the card you choose, but if you do have PCI express, I would suggest getting a 512mb video card for future gaming.

the geforce 8600GT is a good buy too. Typicall they are around $140, they have 512mb vid and have GDDR3 memory, (good clock speed on those cards). They can run those games no sweat.

Hope this helps.

(Btw, the geforce8600GT is directx 10 compatible)
