The motherboard has two pci E slots. An x 1 and an x 16
The gt 520 is pcie 2.0 x16 so you can do it. The only difference is that a v2 card in a v1 slot wont perform as well as it could. In otherwords the card out performs that slot. The slot cannot feed it as fast as it can take it.

SOURCE: computer freezes after about 10 mins !

It is possible the power supply is now too small for the number of loads you now have.Not sure what your CPU is ,but I bet it is 80 watts just by itself. The minimum wattage requirement or the video card by itself is 300 watts.Add the drives,ram,fans and mobo and you way underpowered.

A ram upgrade could help, however you may need to think about upgrading your CPU also. First check if you can upgrade your CPU. Your best option may be to upgrade to a new computer altogether.

SOURCE: what video card can I use to replace my ati x1100

You can use any PCI express video card; preferably an ATI one so it doesn't conflict with your current ATI chipset.

SOURCE: o.k..so heres my problem...i just

There are four slot types for video cards.
ISA: (except for certain industrial units, this has been obsolete for about 15 years).
PCI: This standard is used for almost everything except video cards; the bandwidth of the bus is just not adequate for present video cards. In the mid-1990's video cards were all PCI.
AGP: This standard was developed specifically for video cards when PCI proved inadequate, but it too has been superceded. AGP cards usually have a "foot" cut into the board at the end of the connector tabs. It was used for desktop systems built between 1998-2007 or thereabouts.
PCI-E: This is the current standard for video cards. It is an enhancement on the original PCI standard, but needs to have a different connector.

Besides these there is on-board video, with the graphics processor soldered to the motherboard and "borrowing" part of the main memory for its operation instead of having its own graphics memory.

AGP and PCI-E slots are always placed closer to the processor than the other slots because the distance makes a difference at the speeds used in present-generation video processing.

I could not find any information on your model on the HP website. The Evo 5xx series uses a number of different form factors, including a compact desktop that apparently won't support anything other than on-board video or PCI. The PCI cards in this model are limited in size since they must fit in a small adapter ('riser") card. Would you double-check your model number? There are several Evo 510 models.

Can an EliteGroup 945GCT-M3 run a Geforce 440 GT graphics card?


AS it GEFORCE 440 requires (pci express) PCI-E 2.0 x 16 and your motherboard has 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, so you just need to check your motherboards manual if motherboards pci express is x16 2.0 if so, you can go for a upgrade and run. as I found itcan run nvidia geforce 8 or 9 on fixya.

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?


The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

2) PCI-Express:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

I would like to upgrade the graphics.


Yes, if you are running onboard video, and have an open PCI Express slot (or two), you can go out and get yourself a better video card. I would recommend getting sticking with ATI or Nvidia chipset cards, made by a company with a decent warranty. Lots of manufacturers make cards that use the Nvidia or ATI chipsets, but saving $10 isn't worth the headache if/when it blows up. I personally like the GeForce 200 series (240,250,280,295,etc..) or the slightly older 9800GT series cards. All of these are available in 512MB and 1024MB versions, and should all work fine with your system.

Is the PCI Express Slot a 2.0 x16? that could be the issue not positive those cards will work without that specific slot Also check on the graphics card for a 6Pin plug usually they wont work well with out it hooked up to the power supply the plug should say PCI-Epress 1 or 2 good luck!

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.

Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!
