By the specs your machine doesn't support AGP so you'll have to go with a PCI card with S-Video out. This link will give you a list of ATI Radeon cards available on ebay to accomplish this task.

NOTE: That list will also bring up a list of PCI-E cards, your machine requires PCI, make sure you select the correct model.

Good luck!

Can video card be upgraded in emachine el1358g-51w

yes you can upgrade the graphics card, you have integrated graphics but you can purchase a PCI-E graphics card and bypass the on board graphics but keep in mind you'll have to buy a "low profile" graphics card as there's not much room in your case and a full size card will not fit.

I just want to know if I can upgrade the processoer and if so to what GHz? Can the motherboard support a PCIe 2.0 video card? emachine ET1831-01

First, yes, you can upgrade to a dual core pentium 2.93 GHZ..model E6500
as for video, yes, you can use a 2.0 pci-e video card as long as it is a 1x or a 16x standard. Those are the only standards supported by your computer, so if it is a pci-e 4x then it won't work, at least not for long...incompatible bus architecture.
I hope this helps !

I want to install a video card on my e machine T3882. cpu currently runs on a onboard graphics controller/

First, look in your manual and find out what kind of Graphics connector you have. You have either AGP or, the more common PCIe. PCIe is very fast and very reliable. You will have no trouble installing it as long as you match up the connectors exactly. Same applies for AGP which is still a very viable video source, just a little older and would be the first to go with newer motherboards. Once you install your new board you may have to go into BIOS and let them know you are using an external card, but I doubt it.

I have an Emachine with Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6100 (graphics up to 128 MB of shared video memory)Video card, was wondering what video card should i get to upgrade for either a s-video out or HDMI to...


You can purchase a new graphics card and install no problem. Dont use S-Video tho, as the quality is not good. HDMI graphics cards are much cheaper these days.

Stay with Nvidia, as the onboard chip for your PC would support this better.

I going to buy a emachine et116107 today and i

That particular model has PCI-Express slot for optional upgrades. So if you decide to upgrade the graphics look for anything with a PCI-E label or PCI-Ex16. If you do get a new card make sure to disable the onboard graphics in the system BIOS prior to installing new card. Instructions can be found via google search

EMachine Video Card upgrade

Ok so are you getting video from the card? Look in system information and see what graphics hardware the computers says is installed. Are you replacing a video card or did you add a card to the system? If you are adding a card make sure that you change the settings in the BIOS to boot first on AGP/PCI-E express slot. Make sure that fast write settings and bus speed settings are compatible with your card. For example if you purchased a 8X AGP card and your computer only does 4X the card may not work. Double check that you are trying to install the correct drivers for your card and operating system.
