In general I would never recommend to upgrade a fixed (mass production or brand built) PC. Also with these specs if your are trying to make a gaming PC out of it you are going to be disappointed. Never the less if you still want this I can only suggest to go for the bigger PSU like GS800 so the GPU could work a bit better plus a set of ram for a total of 8.
if thats wat the specs say then thats most probably the max youve just bought one thats to powerfull, and y did you need so much power the most powerfull graphics card in the world needs a 750watt power surpply, your computer is probably not designed to have major upgrades, and by looking at the specs i can see that your computer well putting it simply is **** for upgrading the specs are **** (no offense intended) i suggest upgrading to a whole new computer if you want that sought of power and graphics
A Tbird 1.0GHz is going to bottleneck your system, even thou it's one that will work on your board, However,. I would look for a $40-50 9700 pro or 9800 pro. Anything more than that is a waste. Even a $25 used Ti4200 would be way above a R9000. For most newer games, even a tbird 1.0Ghz is under minimum spec. CoD2 or Battlefield 2 at high settings and others won't even run due to your CPU and lack of RAM. Even if your CPU and RAM were at it's max there are serious bottlenecks with sse3 instructions. Bottom line AGP 4X won't hurt the card performance but the cpu will; if you must upgrade, go used and cheap...nothing fancy. But to be honest, without upgrading other components, it wouldn't be much better than a $250 AGP card in your system.
Yes you can run the AGP version of the Radeon 1650 pro on your system. It is always best & recommended to upgrade memory in pairs. You could upgrade to `gb by purchasing a 1 gb kit which would be 512 x 2. That way you have a matching pair of RAM modules. As for a cpu upgrade you can go to the Asus website and see what cpu's are supported by your motherboard. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
Being agp3.0, it is backwards compatible so in theory, it should work. With the older system, it may be dangerous. I would find a card that clearly states that it works in x8 (3.0) 1.5v. If it doesn't work it could fry the whole system. If i find a card that works, I'll let you know.
You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.
You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.
Sorry but cant see the picture u have posted as its so small.
Whatever the spec is there shouldnt be a problem upgrading to a 8500 or even higher card. There are cards higher up in the range that are now relatively cheap and will far exceed the perfromance of the 8500 agp card.
A good and cheap upgrade would be something like a 9800xt
here are a couple of sites showing performance of cards
The main problem with a higher spec card will be wether your psu is capable of powering it. If you open the pc case up the psu should have details on the side of it. Please list what they are along with the make.
