Installing a recent Graphics card

Hey I was just wondering if I can install a new graphics card (Such as a recet nVidia card)on to my computer?
*I have 1 GB of RAM
*I have the tower version of this computer.
*I have 3 slots (One I use for my Wireless card)

and so as long as I have a slot available for a new graphics card im good right?

Yes, you can. Just plug it in to the slot in your computer and boot up your computer. If everything goes well then it means its good to go. A piece of advise, if it doesn't fit in, then its not meant for it.

    You might want to check on your computer's manual to check what the motherboard is and tell me what it is. Give me the model name of your computer so that I can check for you what graphic card you can use before you make any purchase.

Yeah, with World of Goo especially, sometimes having previous drivers makes them playable.

Try installing these drivers and see if that helps.

If you need a new card for gaming purpose please go for ati 5770 or nvidia 9800 gt as you will get a better gaming performance from both of these as compared to 240gt.

Hi,

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.

Which graphics cards are compatible


You can not use a PCI-E card. This mobo has one AGP slot and TWo PCI(not PCI-E) slots. I am assuming you have a Dell Optiplex GX260? It has the D845 series board. Goto Newegg.com and search for: AGP. They have a nice x1650pro agp card for cheap. I have the same board in one of my PC's

Counter Strike Graphics 'Set Pixal Format Failed'


Hi :)

When you updated your graphics card and ran CSCZ it tried to run the game from its previous setting and found they had changed. upon realizing this CSCZ may have changed its graphisc setup to your new graphics card which as you said is unsupported.

in this case all you can do is purchase a better graphics card than your old one that is on the supported graphics card list or you can re install your old graphics card. inorder to do this you would have to physically change the old graphics card back into your computer (which it sounds like youve done) and now when you run CSCZ it doesnt work? if this is the case you might have to reconfigure CSCZ to your old graphics card.

In order to do this:

it may be as as simple as checking the root file and finding a Config.exe or something to that extent that when you open it it has options on how to run the graphics for the game if this is the case change the settings and try again it should work)

It may be as thorough as un installing the game and re installing it when your old graphics card is in the tower (note this method might be tried by the new card aswell...)

NOTE make sure that if you installed your new graphics card that it has its driver installed or even try to go the manufacturers website and download a newer driver for it (if this isnt just out of the store)

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard


The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.

Did you try installing and updating the driver of the graphics card dedicated to the operating system "VISTA" ? Sometimes there is some difference between vista's driver and XP's driver.
