    Insert the graphics card into the PCI-e slot (the dark brown slot, a bit longer than the others), and secure it to the chassis using the one screw that (hopefully) came with it. You might have to remove an expansion slot cover from the rear of your case, but it should slide right in. Ensure you have plenty of clearance horizontally, relocating hard drives/optical drives, if necessary. After you have the hardware installed, power up your system, and install the drivers that came with it. Be sure to visit NVidia's website to download the latest drivers,



    XP 32-bit (x86) current drivers:

    Be sure when working with internals of your computer, to power down and disconnect all power sources.

Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.
