The DDR2 is the type of memory used on the Video cards board. It doesn't affect if you are able to use the card in your computer. What does matter is the form factor of the graphics card, which is typically PCI, PCI-E or AGP. If you can look at *********** board, you need to look and see if there is a graphics card already installed(It may be built into your motherboard. Either way, your looking for about a 3" long by 1/2" high white slot, or a similar brown slot... if you don't see either of those, you more than likely will use a regular PCI slot... these are about 5-6" long and white. Best thing to do is find out the make and model of your motherboard and look for the soecs online. Or you can download a free program called Everest Home Edition. Run that program, and it will give you all the information you need. Be careful if it PCI-E, because there are different speeds, PCI-E 1, and PCI-e 16(there might be more, it's been a while since I've dealt with video cards), but make sure you know which one you have first.

Let's make this clear, There are many factors that contribute to a videocard's performance. The BUS which is the connection from the card itself to the Motherboard , though not the most important, is one of them.
PCI is extremely slow compared to PCI express and a videocard with PCI bus suffers from a strong bottleneck that makes it quite unsuitable for 3D graphics.
a PCI card is good as second display adapter to connect extra monitors to your pc: handy feature for data monitoring and multitasking but not that much as a gaming card.
Your motherboard does not have an AGP slot, but also has an Intel integrated graphic chip, so a PCI Nvidia 9400 will be quite a big upgrade, but don't expect high gaming performance...
furthermore Graphic memory speed has a big impact on performance, but size does not.512MB DDR2 is a big but slow memory and 1GB I can say it's totally useless, you need to use a resolution way over full HD to take advantage of it, but a PCI card performs really bad on that.

    By the way your computer is quite fast, but does not have much "expansion room" on his head. you need to change motherboard if you need graphics, and buy an AGP video card(PCI xpress is only on newer motherboards which probably do not fit your CPU), then you will notice an extreme improvement in graphc performance. The question is, is it worth the price? You might consider buying a new machine for that kind of stuff and keep your old machine as a backup machine just for dowloads and office work.

What kind of graphic card with hmdi port do I need to buy

You can get any graphics card that fits into a PCI-E x16 slot, which is most of them these days.

You may like to refer to
and documents referred to in that document such as the motherboard spec. I'd copy these documents onto my PC if I were you; HP have a nasty habit of removing reference documents for items that think nobody reads.....
This is very out of date, but it might be worth a look (not many have HDMI out)
You might try searching the internet for eg PCI-E graphics card + HDMI
Just an example, at the cheap end recommends 300W psu.
You need to check that your case is large enough to fit your chosen card in.
Be careful about much power your potential new graphics card will need; you may need to get a higher rated PSU. The advice on PSUs is to buy a good quality one. New, quality ones are not cheap. In fact, having only a 259W PSU, you'll almost certainly need a more powerful PSU. This a fairly useful tool:
Once you start on that you will need to think about how to keep your computer cool.
Other than that it's a case of how much do you want to spend ? You might want to try a higher spec. card 2nd hand from ebay for example if don't want to spend the money for a new card.

GPU hardware not recognised

Hello the homepage is here:

Try to download a manual if you don`t have it.
If any drivers for the mainboard is missing install them.

Install the newest NVIDIA graphic driver from here:

This is the 64 bit version.

Check also if the graphic card is properly insertet
in the slot on the mainboard.
And the graphic card has to support PCI-E X16
This graphic card needs extenal power
from the power supply to work
the power supply has a wire with pci-e stamped in did you connect this ???.

Try to disable the onboard graphic in the device manager.

Good luck

Which is the BEST graphic card for celeron d 325

For 99.99 on newegg you can get a Sparkle 1GB GeForce 9400 GT, DX10, 550 MHz Core Clock, Dual 400MHz RAMDAC, Shader 4.0...

The model# is SP94GT1024D2L-HP

Neweggs Link for this card is:

Sparkle's Link for Product Info is:

Asking which of anything is the best is really a matter of opinion, but as far as the hardware capabilities for an older standard card go, this one has to be as good as it gets. (Actually, I'm a pretty impressed...I didn't know any PCI card could do what this does. Although it won't stand up to the bus speed of a PCIe card, or even an AGP card, if all you have is a PCI slot, this is your card!)

HELP with with Intel celeron d 325

Phew, k3! A ton of questions and even more confusion going on here!

Firstly (love that non-word), your Motherboard accepts DDR Ram. Unfortunately, DDR2 will not be compatible. Won't work. Sorry. It does accept up to 2gb of DDR Ram, though.

Second, for Graphic Card slots, it has 3 x PCI slots (NOT PCI-Express), which are great for G-Cards. Maximum amount of memory won;t be affected by your MB, but by your processor and ram. As long as it has a PCI slot for a PCI card, you'll be good. Just be sure to turn off integrated graphics in BIOS settings.

Thirdly, good luck. Opening up the side of your PC can be daunting at first. Ensure you either have the patience to learn before you touch or have the money to continue learning as you go. >.o

Is my main board defective??

Hi, The problem sounds to me like you need to access the bios and make sure the AGP is enabled. If this is enabled then you may need to go to the manufacturers site and download the drivers for your board and operating system. With a P3 you should have no trouble running XP so if you are not using this already then perhaps you need to upgrade as XP has a very good set of drivers built in and will run most video cards and sound cards Regards mistyman
