I culdent find P4M266A-8235 on Via Tec site.

Find out who the manufacure is for your motherboard, go to your manufactures site and check your motherboard, Check if your motherboad have PCI EXPRESS on it cos both the graphic card you refer to is PCIex-cards.

I think you have an APG port on your motherboad, so those graphic cards is not compatible, but check to be 100% sure.

Good luck!

    When you find an APG card. the instrucions on that card will let you know.

    I'm sure that almost all APG cards will support your motherboad.

    Good luck finding a disent APG-card

That video card won't work on your system board. The video card requires a PCI-E expansion slot, but the system board has an AGP slot. You'll need to look for an AGP video card. I tried looking on the site you gave for the card you were considering and they don't seem to have any AGP type cards, so you will need to shop around some more.

    Any AGP video card would work. The ATI card you list is a good choice. 512MB of video memory will give you good performance. You should enjoy it, especially if you are a game player.

I have an K8T Neo (MS-6702) mobo with an nVidia Gforce4 MX 4000 (NV18) does anyone knows a good upgrade for this motherboard o any video card that can works better? It's and old PC and would like to renew...

The best thing I can suggest is to get an ATI radeon graphics card. You don't say what your Operating system is.
The Sapphire Radeon HD3650 is Vista certified and will fit the mobo you describe (ie AGP x8)
The Radeon is made by the same company that makes the Processor in your Mobo, so compatibility should not be a problem.

I want to get a new graphic card this is my current one which graphic card would work for my desktop


OK, this question is actually dependent on a couple of factors. Let me explain:

How much are you willing to pay for an upgraded card?

Since the card is a PCI express card, you will be able to buy a compatible PCI express card as an upgrade.

Also, do you want to stick with ATI, or are you open to Nvidia as well?

Let me know, i will gladly assist.

Kind regards

I need to upgrade my graphics card but i don't know what to get

Is the graphic card on the motherboard directly or is it a card in a PCI or AGP slot?
If it is direcly inclued whith the motherboard you must go to the constructor website and download the updated driver if exist.
If it is in a separately slot as AGP you must to know the model of this as NVIDIA GEFORCE,...and go to their website to download the right driver for your operating 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.
