You should see the type of graphics card slot first if your motherboard supports AGP or PCI Express slot and the memory limit your motherboard can hold for graphics card.

Where can I purchase?


Hi, it looks that your motherboard uses SATA for your components. You should be able to buy any new SATA DVD-R at NewEgg, eBay or your place of choice.

Gateway GT5040 Graphics Card


This model Gateway desktop computer has a built-in video card.
Connect the monitor to the Gateway motherboard video port and the boot up and go into the BIOS and select disable the built-in video.
Shut down then connect the monitor to the 8800GTX video card and boot up the Gateway computer. The video should then appear in the monitor.

I have a Gateway zx4351. Can I upgrade to a dedicated video card from my GeForce 9200?


It is possible... Yes.

Is it worth it... Maybe the ram upgrade to 8GB is worth the money...

Also, some all in one computers are very hard to even figure out how to open. You better make sure you can do it before you try. You also might want to check if opening the case voids your warranty too.

Attempted to install NVidia 9800t on my Gateway GX7018E. Could not get Windows 7 to recognize the video card plugged into the pci-e slot. Is there a way to force recognition? I have changed the BIOS info...


Do you have another monitor or TV with dvi/hdmi? Try to see if that works. And it seems like you changed the graphics output while in Windows. Try turning it off, swapping the cable and turn on again.

Video card upgrade for Gateway GT4024


Try looking up for Updated drivers at Gateway for your Computer. Also find out what video it's using (ie. NVidia, Radeon, etc.) Many times the Video Card maker will have the latest updates for video cards before they get to the computer maker.

Best video card upgrade for Gateway GT4024???? Stock computer....except ram upgrade to 2x1gb....want to increase the video handling from the slow onboard video


Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend.  You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use.  Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend.  Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161203

Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now.  You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst.  Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.  
Good Luck

Gateway GX7018E / T6420 = swap video cards for a test?????


No you cant, the gateway GX7018E uses integrated graphics like the T6420. You will have to buy a cheap PCI or PCI-E graphics card to test it out.

Video card for the gateway 507gr


Yes, your computer specifically supports:

PCI Express 16x and
PCI Express 1x

The 16x is the long one and the 1x is the reallly short one. Most likely the card that you get will fit the big slot. Be careful not to upgrade too high though, because if you do you may have to upgrade your power supply as well. Ask someone at gateway or a local shop for a recommended card for your system.

Yes it does have an AGP slot, which you can confirm easily by looking at the motherboard. The AGP slot would be found at the top of the available slots and is brownish in color and slight smaller than the several white PCI slots.

As for what card to put in, that depends on your budget and needs.
If you're a gamer, spend as much as you can and go with a N-Vidia based AGP card.
