Can I upgrade the video card on a Gateway E4300 to work with Shader 3 graphics (Eve Online)? Or do I have to buy a new computer?


You only really need to upgrade the video card and the PSU (most video cards need more power than what most companies like dell and gateway provide.). So no need to buy a new computer.

I need a recommendation for a video card that will work in a Gateway Performance 733 that originally came with integrated graphics.


That is a pretty old PC to be upgrading, but a new video card might help a bit for video viewing.
Im assuming that it has either only PCI or maybe a 1st gen AGP slot. You would need to open it and find out. Iff all the slots look exactly the same its PCI if the top one is different or even darker brown in color its AGP. now dont get the regualr PCI mixed up with PCI-E (pci-express16x) those will not fix and they are what is mainstream right now in the video card market.

I'd suggest looking on eBay or other online retailers to find a PCI oe AGP card.

Would like to upgrade Gateway Desk Top 500SE to a HD video


I don't think you can't do that without some major changes. The 500SE is a small format computer. The motherboard only has 2 PCI slots so you need to match that interface. NewEgg still sells the PCI video cards but I don't think they are HD

You need a more larger power supply. The current one is a 145 watt u-ATX Form Factor; you need at least 250 watts in that form factor (size)

A better choice might be a new motherboard. Look for board with a AMD Socket 7 if you want to keep this CPU. The motherboard will need to match the size of the current one to reuse the case. It's a uATX "like" form factor (7.4" x 9.35"). Also plan on a new power supply any AGP or PCI-e video card will want more than 350 watts (for the low end cards). Getting a new computer might be worthwile.

I hope this helps.

Changing colour depth


I think you are using the minimal Microsoft video drivers for your video card. Install true ATI/AMD video drivers for that card and you should get a world of better video out of that card. Go to; http://ati.amd.com to get the latest drivers.

Installed New RAM, Now Have Display Problems (color)


It appears something has happened with the video card or connector especially if it displays fine with the onboard video and original memory. Disconnect power and reinsert the video card into it's slot.

helenak,
  • First you should check your connection from your monitor to your computer, generally it will be at the back of CPU (Computer Cabinet).
See the image: 7fe1438.jpg This will be connected to your PC Video out port:351cada.jpg
  • After connecting again try out. If no luck then you shoud buy a PCI VGA card, its easy to installed in your PC, just remove the cover and you will see a slot with white color, try to insert gentlly it will be fixed.
  • Regarding rate there are too many products, you can search at net for your need.

Thanks & Good Luck
