Upgrading vs. New PC?


I took a look at the specs for your Desktop PC... It's far outdated, so I wouldn't hesitate to replace it.
I just happen to be a bit of an expert in this field, and I'd advise you to avoid buying from a retail manufacturer (which is nothing more than rebranded hardware). If you're interested, I do have a service on here to provide help getting you the perfect Desktop PC (or even Notebook/Laptop if you'd rather go that route). My fee is cheap, and I'll surely save you more than that. Either way, no matter what you decide, be sure to research anything you buy before you do. Let me know your budget and we can go from there, if you're interested. But to answer your question, again... Yes, it's in your best interest to replace the system. (Your motherboard only supports up to 256 mb of ram, and that is older form factor, plus it won't even come close to the system requirements to run any modern Operating system.)

I hope this clears it all up for you. Have a great day, and let me know if I can help any further.
Please remember to rate me, Thank You.

Having trouble upgrading to xfx radeon 5570 graphics card


1) Did you upgrade your power supply? The x300se was a low power graphics card. The new card needs at least a 400W power supply and that is what I find in the specs. However, the exact power needs depend on the rest of the specs for the computer (use a power supply calculator to get an estimate: www.thermaltake.outervision.com/ ). (Optical drive, hard drive, etc)
2) Did you uninstall the driver for the original card before removing it?
3) Check for updated drivers (newer than on the supplied card). Download and install those.

The original card was a low-profile card. Do you have enough space for this card in the box? (Similar question comes in with the power supply - make sure it fits in the case.) Also make sure that you are not getting overheating issues with the new graphics card. There are slot cooler fans and fans that can be mounted above all of the card slots. The best choice for your needs depends on the case and the temperature causing instability.

If you provide more details on where you are having trouble, I'll try to provide more assistance.

(at least this graphics card doesn't require a pci/e power connection to the PSU, as far as I knowm so that is one less thing to go wrong. Note: PSU are often rated by the max peak power that they can supply; it is the mean (average) power supplied to all devices that matters. Otherwise, a gaming session will pull too much power and shut the system down.)

Since you can't upgrade memory on a video card especially if its built on to the motherboard your best bet is to purchase a new PCI video with the proper amount of memory you need and install into your dell PC. you may have to go into the BIOS and disable the on board video card and tell the system to use the new one. Just make sure the new card you purchase has drivers for whatever operating system you are running.

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

Some games gives you the option to run on low specs, but not all of the time. You can upgrade the card, becareful. You have to know what slots you have and what type of card you can get.

Upgrading Graphics accelerator


Not every computer is the same, but many times you can disable your integrated graphics by going into the BIOS setup and disabling the onboard graphics. This is not necessary, even if you plan to upgrade.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx110/ens/ug/specs.htm#expansion_bus

when i read the system specs it says it only has PCI expansion slots. I regret to inform you your computer is very limited in its ability to expand, basically you will not be able to upgrade to render graphics for more 3d applications especially newer games. you need at least one AGP port or PCI Express. However if you absolutely want the best available for PCI you can purchase a RADEON 9000 PCI edition. It can handle most older 3d games or apps and it will work on your computer. All you have to do is plug it in to any PCI slot and install the software that come with the device, and voila.

http://www.amazon.com/ATI-Radeon-9000-64MB-Video/dp/B001339YIC

For newer 3d apps and games you will have to purchase a new system.

Is my motherboard compatible with a new graphic card


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.

Suitable graphics card which would enable me to play games


The problem is that you can't just Upgrade the video card in a portable like you can a desktop system.

Upgrading the video would require a new motherboard with discrete graphics. VERY few portable system have upgradeable video without major cost (Usually cheaper to sell system and buy one configured as you need it) which is my recommendation if that system will not perform as you desire.

Generally, upgrades on portrable systems are limited to MEMORY, HARD DRIVES and plug in components like wireless cards, modems etc.

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.

Upgrading of Graphics Card


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

http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=238&card2=36

http://www23.tomshardware.com/graphics_2007.html?modelx=33&model1=740&model2=741&chart=318

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.
