It is possible the power supply is now too small for the number of loads you now have.Not sure what your CPU is ,but I bet it is 80 watts just by itself. The minimum wattage requirement or the video card by itself is 300 watts.Add the drives,ram,fans and mobo and you way underpowered.

Can an EliteGroup 945GCT-M3 run a Geforce 440 GT graphics card?


AS it GEFORCE 440 requires (pci express) PCI-E 2.0 x 16 and your motherboard has 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, so you just need to check your motherboards manual if motherboards pci express is x16 2.0 if so, you can go for a upgrade and run. as I found itcan run nvidia geforce 8 or 9 on fixya.

Graphics freeze on all games. even on lowest graphics


Sounds like it's time for updated drivers. you can get them here;
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
I enetred your info but will go outline for you.
1 Product type-GeForce
2 Product series-GeForce 400 Series
3 Product-GeForce GT430
Pick your operating system and language and click search. This will give you latest update. I will provde MSI's site as well they have "Live eye" taht will scan you computer and advise you of updates;
http://www.msi.com/service/download/
I beleive in an original setup you should go with MSI for all the bells and whistles but, when it comes to garphics driver updates, I would use Nvidia. This should cure your problem unless you have power or ram issues. If this doesn't help you or if you have any questions let me know at "add a comment"

Need to know the spec for mother board


The Packard Bell iMedia D3318UK desktop computer?

If it is an iMedia D3318UK model it will have the Part Number - PV.U050Y.019 on the back of the computer tower.
(P/N PV.U050Y.019)

If this is the correct model;

Motherboard:
Made by ECS (EliteGroup Computer Systems) for Packard Bell

Packard Bell's name for the motherboard is Denver 10
It's a Micro-ATX form factor. (Size. Should be 9.6 inches by 9.6 inches, or also stated as 244mm by 244mm)

Uses the Nvidia nForce 610i Northbridge chipset
Uses the Nvidia GeForce 7050 Southbridge chipset.

(The Northbridge chipset, and the Southbridge chipset make up the motherboard chipset)

More information on Nvidia's nForce 610i chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#For_Intel_processors_2

1) Uses the LGA 775 processor socket
The processor socket has the pins, while the processor has the socket holes.

2) Has support for Pentium 4, Celeron, Core2 Duo, and Core2 Quad processors, with up to a 1066MHz Front Side Bus. (FSB)

List of Intel Core2 Microprocessors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors

This way you can look at the processors with a 1066MHz FSB.

I know it will support the Conroe Core, Intel processors, but can't give you factual data at the moment, whether the BIOS program on that motherboard will support Intel's Wolfdale-3M Core processors.

3) Supports (Uses) DDR2 Sdram ram memory at either 533MHz, 667MHz, or 800MHz. (PC2-4300, PC2-5300, and PC2-6400 respectively)

Has two ram memory slots, and will support up to 8GB's of ram memory.

Bear in mind that this is only with a 64bit Operating System.
Otherwise it will support up to 4GB's of ram memory with a 32bit O/S.

(Windows XP Home is a 32bit O/S. Windows XP Pro also, but there is a 64bit version. Vista also comes in a 32bit version, as well as a 64bit version. Never assume all Vista versions are 64 bit.

Note*
With a 32 bit O/S, only 3.2 to 3.5GB's of ram memory will be recognized)

4) Has one PCI Express x16 graphics slot.

This graphics slot uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just will not get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice?
Doubtful.

Fifa 09 freezing not running fast


Geforce 7100 is a built in graphics card, so you may not be able to play this game at a high setting. Try lowering the game settings to see a improvement in speed.

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.


Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!
