Yes you will need a half height AGP graphics card for that tower. You can purchase such card from places like eBay or Amazon. I suggest you get something over 128MB. Click on the link below for an idea.

Good luck and regards.

SOURCE: Video card upgrade

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.

Please rate this as solved once you've read it, unless you have further questions, then post another comment.

SOURCE: video card for the gateway 507gr

The 507GR had onboard video - so when you insert a new card you will have to deactivate the onboard video in Device Manager.

As regards the replacement card - any modern card will work fine, what you need to know though is whether your motherboard has an AGP riser or will accept PCI cards.

I have been told that PCI Express graphics cards are preferred over AGP cards, but I don't know why.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Motherboard - disable onboard graphics

1. open your cabinet.
2. remove the battery form the motherboard.
3. wait 15 seconds and then replace the battery again.
4. connect your screen to the pci ex card.

now it should work.

This is a well known issue with gateway media centre and there is no easy solution for this problem. If you are an expert in tearing apart the system and putting it back, then this LInk has some options which have worked to many people.

SOURCE: Upgrade video card

Any of the cards here are suitabl,e with almost all under $100 and are all PCI Express x 16
Your mobo is not suitable for the PCI X 2.0
Remember the amount of memory on the video card comes from your available ram - so you need to consider this when buying if you dont have much ram.
If you need more help deciding let me know

When loading and using Real Flight Basic, I receive the following message:" Video card dooes not support shaders. Now exiting program." Question: Where is my video card and what card must I replace...

Shaders are usually found on higher end video cards. If you are using the nVidia FX5200 that came in that system, you can try updating the drivers to the newest ones you can find, but more likely you'll need to upgrade to a better AGP graphics that has 256MB to 512MB of RAM onboard. You'll want to research the card of choice to see if the shader function is available. I don't recall that FX 5200 having anything more than Shader 2.0 capability, but you need to make sure your DX9 and the driver for the card are up to most current.

What video card would be compatable with a insignia computer model d300?

I would recommend any of the Nvidia or ATI video cards that come in the PCI format. Your computer only has PCI slots. These are the older slot types, so your options will be limited for brand new cards, but there's still plenty out there. As long as the slot type is PCI and the chipset is a major manufacturer, it should work with no problem. Do NOT get any video card that says "PCI Express" or "PCI-X" - they won't fit.

When i try 2 starting IGI game....a problem popon up.... ''d3d driver with hardware acceletor not found'' give me solution.... anurag yadav...

Either you do not have a graphics card with 3d capability or you don't have the driver installed. To find out goto start > Settings > Control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device manager > Click plus on display adapters. Either google the driver listed there or post it here as a comment and you can find out if it has 3d capability. If you don't have a 3d able card many motherboards allow the addition of a 3d graphics card as an upgrade.

I don't think there's a 8x AGP card made that would not work at 4x, and any 4x capable AGP slot should handle an 8x card. AGP 1.0 (x2) signals at 3.3V AGP 2.0 (x4) signals at 1.5V AGP 3.0 (x8) signals at 0.8V
