If you look at a pci-express slot you can see a border where the card connects. The border is at about 15-20% from left of the slot and separates it to two. A small dimm and a large dimm.
AGP has two borders wich separates the slot to 3 parts and those are almost(!) equals to each other...
That's the difference if you just look at it...

Pci express is much better tahn agp. PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express), officially abbreviated as PCI-E or PCIe, is a computer expansion card standard introduced by Intel in 2004, and currently is the most recent and high-performance standard for expansion cards that is generally available on modern personal computers.[citation needed] PCIe was designed to replace PCIPCI-X, and AGP. Unlike previous PC expansion standards, rather than being a shared parallel bus, it is structured around point-to-point serial links called lanes.

Hp pavillion a1632x


According to this page,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00771728&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en#N83

Unless you added parts, or got a different variation of the computer, the A1632X has two available PCI slots and one available PCI Express x16

I'm the GF FX 5200 only came in AGP and PCI packages, the PCI Express model was label as a 5300.

If you have the PCI version, it should work. If you have the AGP version, there is no slot for it in the A1632X

So which video card do i need? i have 845gl motherboard . before installing this video card (rage XL 8mb pci) my pc plays videos and most 3d game very (even gta sanandreas) efficiently but now it is not...


Hi,

The ATI Rage XL 8MB PCI video card is a very old and low power video card.

PCI graphics cards are not as fast as AGP graphics cards so if your motherboard has an AGP slot (it's the slot closest to the CPU and is usually coloured brown) then that would give you better performance.

These days AGP has been superceded by PCI-Express but since your motherboard does not have a PCI-Express slot then the best graphics card for it would be something like this one:

Hope this helps, please rate my answer :)

Compatibility


No, the above video card will not work with the motherboard you have.
the video card you listed is AGP, your motherboard has PCI-Express slots, so you will need to purchase a newer video card.
When purchasing a video card, be sure to look on the box for "PCI-E" or "PCI-Express"

Thw difference between agp and pci slot


sir, you cant replace it with PCI E from AGP, unless your motherboard can handle either PCIE or AGP. cause there is a motherboard which is compatible with the two interface video cards slots but in your case i dont think so. Better to check your motherboards manual for this.

thank you for using fixya

Adjusting video card ram


You cannot add more ram to your graphic card, If you want more ram for optimum system performance I recommend buying a new ATI, or NVIDIA graphic card to replace the old one. they both have the best cards on the market and visit their site at NVIDIA or ATI.com for more cards information and where to buy them.
REMEMBER TO PURCHASE THE CORRECT BOARD TYPE FOR YOUR SYSTEM. IF YOU HAVE PCI BUY PCI CARD, AGP=AGP CARD AND PCI-EXPRESS= PCI-XPRESS CARD
I recommend 256MB RAM for PCI systems, 512MB RAM for AGP systems and 1GB RAM for PCI-EXPRESS systems.

E machines w2646 video card replaceable


It has only some shared video memory onboard, so it won't be replacing.
The information i can find tells that the motherboard features an AGP-port, so you can just buy an AGP video card and place put it in the agp port on your computer.
