As long as your mobo has a PCie slot or a brown AGP slot you can insert a graphics card, but you will need to go into the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) to tell the pc to look for the agp adapter or pci as the primary graphics controller, which then dissables the onboard graphics

I WANT TO INSTALL A VIDEO CARD FOR MY NEW MONITOR


You will need to get a PCI video Card once you have it open the PC case and the card will go in the first blue slot at the top you will also have to open a port in the back of the tower where the card will come out , It will be wise to shut down the computer and unplug it beware of static so ether wear a anti static wrist band or a pair of surgical rubber gloves

Does this motherboard have integrated video? Or do I need to buy graphics card?


Well if your computer is new generation computer than it has integrated video and you don't need to buy graphics card to view normal display.Now a Days all the new motherboard has integrated 128mb to 256mb graphic chipset in build , but if you want to play high resolution games and graphic works .


And if your computer belongs to old age,say 8-10 years old than you need to put a PCI VGA card to get normal display.

All the best.

Though i have mother-board which has inbuilt Graphic of 256MB i am not able to play games with high graphics, i have Asus-M2N68-AM, with AMD-LE1640, and 2GB Ram, Could u please solve the problem


Hello,

The built in graphics on motherboards are ok for drawing programs and such but not for high speed animation and graphics that games require. You need to get a add on card for your system either, be sure to get a card with a graphics set that is supported in your game.

Computer and video card memory/ram


Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard


The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
