ATI Radeon 9800XT(rv360 is best suited for your motherboard...its got a 128MB VRAM and 4x AGP..500MHz clock is morethan enough..There are better cards but i do not advice 256MB card as it will be too heavy on your system's resources ..however if you want a 256MB version Radeon 9800XT(r360)should be good..

    The best part is these cards cost around US$200 and perform better than most highly priced cards

I would strongly suggest that you do not put any more $ into that motherboard.  You would be far better off saving a few more dollars and upgrading your system.  You can find some very good deals on systems at sites like techbargains.com.  Good luck.

The make is your choice, the type will be AGP (4x) slot and anything 256MB or above depending on your gaming requirements will do, the main makers are ATI or NVIDIA

The best you can fit is an AGP 8X type card. They are difficult to find now, so the prices of decent cards are going up. Your computer is about 3 generations behind, You would get better graphics performance by buying a new motherboard, CPU and memory bundle. It would be cheaper in the long run, as you could then upgrade the graphics card in the future and then upgrade the CPU as well. You can still keep the case and other computer peripherals you already use. But if you want an AGP card look on the Auction sites.

My son saved up and bought a Gateway SX2855-UB12P. We have upgraded to 8MB of RAM and now are looking to upgrade the video card which currently is a PCI Express x16 Graphics. Given his machine is a en


Hope you mean upgraded ram to 8 GB 8 mb is not much ram to run a computer.

To upgrade your computer's graphics card, unfortunately you can't just simply purchase a card and install it to your computer. Before purchasing a card, you must first confirm what is compatible with your motherboard. Graphics cards use either AGP or PCI Express technology. Many older computers use AGP. AGP cards can vary in version and bandwidth, whereas PCI Express cards can vary based on their lane . Moreover, the card itself is not your only consideration when looking to upgrade your computer's graphics. You must also consider the strength of your computer's power supply as well, since most newer cards use a lot of power. Download, install and run SiSoftware's Sandra (see link Below) to find out information on your motherboard. http://download.cnet.com/SiSoftware-Sandra/3000-2086_4-10556571.html Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model." Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website. If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website. Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model. Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications. Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express." If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x). If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16). Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply." Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A"). Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance. Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot. AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa. Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot. Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard. A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU. Hope this helps.

I have an Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard, celeron 300 A and 192 MB of RAM. My question is which graphic cards are best for my configuration. Since my computer is pretty old its hard to find information...


well you should check for AGP video cards version 1.5 V this is whats is your slot as i saw photos of the model of motherboard you have.

this the different type of AGP slots
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AGP_%26_AGP_Pro_Keying.svg

as ive mentined the 1.5V seems to fit from the picture i saw below of your motherboard ...the AGP is the brown slot as u might know.

http://www.pacificgeek.com/largeimage.asp?productimages/xl/BOXSE440BX2NAV-2.jpg

so you will have to find a card that have the characteristic ive mentioned so if u buy a card make sure u ask if that AGP card is Compatible with your 1.5V because if its another AGP socket
it will simply not fit in.

good luck

I have a 256MB DIMM RAM and want to upgrade my video.


Yes it will work the speed of the ram on the video card is for processing on the video card, and is independent of the speed of the system RAM, as long as it is compatible with the AGP type on your motherboard you are good to go, some 8X speed cards will not run full speed in older Motherboard with a max speed of 4X, check your motherboard info and it should tell you what the max is for yoru board.
Hope this helps, Have a great weekend

What is the best graphics card for a K8M800-M7A


Lagacy board? AM2 Socket? If so it has an AGP slot. Advanced Grapics Port. Go to;  Newegg.com  type in AGP card and you will see lots of hits. Or go to : Tigerdirect.com  I believe that they have a Raydon 9550 on sale right now which is a really good compromise between price and preformance for you present machine. Unfortunately the higher the price the better the card. The amount and type of RAM on the card seems to be the biggest factor.     These are all my thoughts only.    Most gaming machines, now days, use one or more  PCIe16  slots with multiple cards tied together. The AGP proceeded this.
