Question about Foxconn 945GZ7MC-RS2H Motherboard

2 Answers

I would like to update the graphic card in my computer

I bought a computer 1.5 year ago, and I realized now, my computer (Compaq-Presario SR5109) is not good enough for games. It has got 251 MB graphics memory, and on the motherboard there are 3 slots. Two PCI x16, and one PCI-E x1 ( I think so). I spent so many hours the last couple of days to get this information about my computer, but I still do not now which graphic card would be the best to play games. I have Windows Vista which is another problem. I would like to find a not too expensive graphic card which is compatible with my Windows Vista and can play games. I found PCI-E x1 256 MB graphic card, which is more expensive than my computer. Is ther any other solution?

    I could not find PCI-E x1 512MB graphic card. There are lots of x16, but not x1. I am thinking to buy 512MB PCI graphic card which is compatible with Windows Vista. Does someone know one? Not a PCI-Express, just I PCI card. The old slot.

PCI Express cards can be expensive, as you've noticed. They are the fastest video cards out now, and you pay for the speed. The link below is for a moderately priced card, $129.99. There are other less expensive cards available. I have purchased from this site for years with good success. Check it out at:

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you.

Have a compaq computer 2008 , needed a video card ,have one cannot figure out where it should be in the back of the computer, serial # 1313CL . MODEL PRESARIO NEED SOME INTRUCTIONS. IT IS A AGP 8X VIDEO...


That would be Compaq Presario SR1313CL desktop computer.

(He says quietly so as to not offend.
Compaq = Computer manufacturer name.
Presario = Model Name
SR1313CL = Model Number.
S/N is next to the Serial Number. Do NOT give out the serial number on an open forum. Only to HP/Compaq representatives, or an authorized HP representative)

Let's take a look at the motherboard, and let me show you where the AGP style of graphics card plugs in.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00069442&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=447943

Please scroll down the page to the Illustration, and photo of the motherboard.

In the illustration look under the chipset labeled - VIA KM400A
The long rectangle with - Accelerated Graphics Port is where the AGP graphics card plugs into.

Now match this up to the motherboard photo.

You'll see the whitish rectangular shape with a lot of holes in it towards the top of the motherboard.
(Has a square hole in it)
This is the Processor socket.

Down below the Processor socket is a square silvery looking object with ribs going across it.
The silvery looking square object is a Heatsink. It is sitting on the Northbridge chip.

[The motherboard chipset for this motherboard, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.
The Northbridge and Southbridge chip are made by VIA.

The Northbridge chip is a VIA KM400A. The Southbridge chip is a VIA VT8237

Chip and Chipset are alternate terms used for I.C.
Integrated Circuit ]

Below the Northbridge chip's Heatsink is a long Brown slot.
This is the AGP expansion slot.

'Mr.Windy' here, but if I may.

1) Motherboard Specifications:
Scroll back up the page until you come to the heading on the left side - Expansion Slots
Look to the right.

Three PCI slots
One AGP 8x/4x (1.5V)

One AGP 8x/4x means the type of AGP expansion slot you have, will accept either an AGP 4X style of graphics card, or an AGP 8X style of graphics card.

1.5V stands for 1.5 Volt

This is how you know the AGP 8X graphics card will,
1) Fit in the AGP expansion slot on the motherboard
2) Be supported by the BIOS program of the BIOS chipset, on the motherboard.

Did this computer already have an AGP graphics card in it, and are you replacing it?

Replacing because the old AGP graphics card,
A) Is No good?
B) You have a better AGP graphics card?
C) The computer was using Integrated Graphics, and you want to install an AGP graphics card for better graphics performance?

There is criteria to follow before you physically install the AGP graphics card, is why I ask.
