The Medion computers appear to use standard parts so the video card can be replaced with any one that uses the same slot. I believe the slot that yours has is PCI Express x16. In any case you can find out just by looking at the card that is already in there (maybe bring it into a computer store and ask the sales people what slot it is).

After starting my PC I only hear a peep


If you are getting long and short beeps it is possible that the graphic card on your system is not proper.

Either the graphic card is gone bad or it is not seated properly

Try to open the computer tower, disconnect the Graphic card and then see if it still beeps. If it does not beep after removing the graphic card try to reinstall the card and see if it is beeping. If the computer beeps even after reseating the graphic card then you will have to replace the graphic card.

My medion radeon x740xl graphics card cant cope with new games.


Your computer has a PCI Express x16 connector. You can replace the card for less than $100; for example, a 9600GT card from NewEgg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127382

Note that card is designed for a PCI Express _2.0_ x16 connector. The card will be more capable than your computer, but will slow down to work with your computer. It's a solid card, reasonable price.

You may want to evaluate how much memory you have and consider upgrading it if you have less than, say, 1gb. Memory's cheap.

Upgrading motherboard


Dual graphic cards aka SLI require a SLI Power Supply. This is a good option if you want to start building a new system. Another option is just to get the new Nvidia 280 graphic card. Check out Tomshardware.com for a killer article on the latest graphic cards.

How do i fit a new graphics card to my medion pc mt7


Adding a graphics card can be complicated. It is best that you research how to do so on Google thoroughly before attempting to get a new card. Your computers power supply *must* be sufficient to support the card or you might blow up your PC. Check out this youtube video for some visual help.

Now I'm not sure about a Medion PC mt7 for GFX cards. Check you're computer's specifications and see if it has any slots for a GFX card. There are 3 types today: PCI, AGP and PCI-Express.

Make sure you're computer has one of these slots, and check to see if you're graphics card matches the slot inside you're computer.

The video should help you out.
