To install the 8600GT, turn off your computer, unplug the power cable going to your power supply, remove the side panel of your case, remove the current video card and firmly push the 8600GT into your PCI-Express x16 slot. Now plug in your monitor to the video card’s ports, close up your case, plug in your power cable, and turn on your machine. In BIOS turn off the built-in video and enable the PCIe slot for use. Restart. Insert the included installation CD and follow the onscreen instructions. The power supply is small but should work as long as you have not added other items. The memory is adequate and does not matter as far as adding a video card is concerned. Some games may require more memory, however.

Upgrade motherboard?


Hello Keith,
The present Motherboard in your computer is Asus A8AE-LE. It has a lot of upgradign options.

It will support the Following CPUs.
Up to AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+
Up to AMD Athlon64 4000+
Up to AMD Sempron 3200+

Also, it has the following memory specifiations.
Memory Installed 1 GB (2 x 512)
Maximum allowed 4 GB* (4 x 1 GB) requires the replacement of the installed 512 MB DIMMs
Speed supported PC-3200 MB/sec
Type 184 pin, DDR SDRAM
DIMM slots Four
Open DIMM slots Two

And the PC has a PCI Express x16 slot you can install a high end Video Card along with a power supply upgrade.

So before you go ahead with replacing the motherboard I would recommend you to consider these options as we can cut down the cost to a greater extend and having the same iprovement on performance.

If you wish to upgrade the motherboard you can use any motherboard having ATX form factor [9.6 in X 9.6 in] in the computer. The CPUs should be selected according to the motherboard you have chosen.
Hope this helps
Pat
