THe best performance would be achieved by upgrading this PC to the maximum allowed. If you are not sure the max, go to www.crucial.com and enter in your model. The video card is not as important. If the hard drive is slow or the performance is still slow after a memory upgrade, you might want to reformat and reinstall Windows.

I nned to increase the possibilities of grafic card for working with programs that have image treatment and others and need a better grafic card


In your case, you can upgrade your system ram or memory bu not the graphic card.Upgrading your system ram or memory will boost your application loading and performance. Example your memory right is 1GB so make it 3GB by purchasing a 2GB ram. You will see the difference but do not expect to for the graphics just for faster loading and better performance can only give your memory. Have a nice day.

I want to upgrade my video card. I know I need a separate video card but which one will give me the best performance to play games without the jerky screen? I did install 2gb of DDR2 ram with little...


Hi,

According to the specs of your motherboard it supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards.

See HP Pavilion a1320n Support

You can get a start by going to Tiger Direct and looking at their video card selections.

Here's a link: Tiger Direct PCI Express Cards

You can get several different memory amounts on the cards. I would probably stay with a minimum of 512MB.

You need to watch the connections. If you use a VGA connector to your monitor, make sure the video card has one. Some only have HDMI or dual HDMI.

Of course you can always find them at most Big Box stores such as Staples, etc.

Ask questions. Make sure what you buy is compatible. Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

NOTE: Keep in mind that smooth video is interdependent on RAM, CPU speed AND video card.

I just upgraded from 2 mps up too 8, and I bought more memory from HP, will this speed up my pc?


Depending on what is the choke point on your performance, the answer is most likely, yes it will be faster.
If you were being limited by your Internet connection, then the 2 to 8 upgrade will help.
If you had minimal RAM in the system, then upgrading there will help.
If you have a low end video card, that my be a limiting factor, same with a slower processor (Celeron Vs Pentium 4 for example)
Other limiting factors can be the amount of hard drive free space and HDD speed and virtual memory settings & performance settings of the operating system

Can i increase my dedicated memory of my notebook to 128mb or


Dedicated video memory is memory contained on a graphics cards which is separate from the RAM plugged into the motherboard. The memory on dedicated graphics cards is set aside specifically for the use of processing 3D graphics and effects. Increasing dedicated video memory requires upgrading a video card with one that has more memory built in.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

"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!

I hav a nvidia 8400gs graphics card how can i increase its size 1. by sharing it with hard disk 2.by sharing it with ram 3.what are the effects of this procedure?


upgrading your video card. There are probably only two basic reasons to upgrade a video card: 1. Your current card has poor performance.or You just "want" faster video performance.
If you think your current video card is performing poorly, there are a couple of things you should do prior to upgrading your video card. The first thing your should do is give your computer a "tune-up". This involves things like running Defrag, Scandisk, virus checkers etc. (for further explanation of tune-up procedures, .
Once you are certain that your computer is performing properly, and your computer is still experiencing slowdowns in video intensive programs, like games or graphic design programs, then the second thing you may need to do is upgrade your computer's main system memory. Inadequate amounts of system RAM will choke your computer's performance. That's why I recommend all newer computers have at least 512 MB of system RAM.

Video memory upgrade for an Acer Aspire 5100.


Sorry, but if it has intergrated video as you say then video card is NOT upgradable, simply because it does not have a card (It is intergrated into motherboard). That unit can take up to 4GB of ram 2GBX2 DDR2 PC25300 200pin SODIMM $56.00@ crucial.com. It is able to share an dditional 256mb of memory from system for a total of 512mb memory on video. With a little research u should also be able to upgrade the cpu.
Hope this helps good luck,
