Is the upgrade for high end graphics gaming? Most people upgrade for a more realistic gaming experience. So, we will assume this is your goal. Highest end gaming video card will cost around 400 US dollars. Not only that, you most also upgrade you computers power supply to handle the new card. A 400 dollar card and a 800WATT power supply. Of course, you must also look at your processor and memory you have in this computer. Processor: At least a Core 2 Duo or Quad, Assuming Windows 7 or 8 (32bit or 64bit), 32bit: At least 1GB ram and 64bit 2GB ram (Minimal) Double those numbers to get a better more efficiently gaming system.

Hope this helps you, have a great night and happy gaming.

    You can get a video card the supports 1080p, they will cost a lot cheaper and don't need a great deal of power.
    Copy this link or google 1080p video card for pc.

    350watt power might be able to find one that goes as low as 250watt or 300watt

Video card upgrade compatibility for compaq presario sr1900 nx with windows 7 sp1 installed

All the information for your computers motherboard can be found here:

The motherboard has a x16 PCI Express Video Card slot , so you should be able to put any PCI Express Video Card into this system. I would however refrain from putting something extremely powerful in there as you will encounter issues with the weak power supply in the system (Unless you upgrade the power supply too)

All modern video cards are PCI Express :)

Video card slot

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.

Can I install pci-e X 16 2.1 video card onto my HP Pavilion Media Center m8400f PC

Its a slot distribution both 2.0 and 2.1. 2.1 is a bit faster as it leads with version. You can install any VGA card that supports it but keep it in your mind that more heavy vga card will require more power. So, you power supply should be heavy and should bear more power for your card as well as your system.
Sometimes, it require to change the power supply as well.
best of luck!

I have no video card

tools: PCI video card

Im gonna take a wild stab at this and ***/ume u wanna upgrade your video, and your computer doesn't have a card right?

your computer probably has a itergrated video card built into the motherboard. theirfore in order for you to upgrade your video you will have to buy a pci video card, be sure to ask the dealer if u need a pci express or just a standard pci card. you will prob have to take the computer with you.

1) Be sure to ground/touch yer had off on the computer case whenever your handling video cards:) this negates any static electricty you may have that could zap yer video card now we need to boot up your pc and disable your current video in your bios menue, you can do this by hitting (delete) key immedatly during boot sequence..

2) Now in the blue screen of you bios browse the menu's by using your (+) (-) keys and hit enter to select your choices,get comfortable looking around...if u change anything just hit escape and select exit out saving. just try not to change anything yet... go into intergrated parifials or pci config depending on yer ver of bios.

3) When you get to pci config hit (enter) and use the (+) and (-) browse the options till you see the option display and select it, hit escape and select save. your computer should now reboot but without any display, turn yer computer off by the power switch on the power supply or just remove the plug from wall if you cant find the switch

4) Remove the left sidewall from the computer and pick a pci slot to install your card, some cards have power leads that require additional hook ups, referr to the documentation/manual of your card

5) Put side wall back on, plug computer in/flip switch, hook up monitor to your new card and boot up voila!!!

hope this help's or if anything it was informative:))

Upgrade video card

Any of the cards here are suitabl,e with almost all under $100 and are all PCI Express x 16
Your mobo is not suitable for the PCI X 2.0
Remember the amount of memory on the video card comes from your available ram - so you need to consider this when buying if you dont have much ram.
If you need more help deciding let me know
