Try to check it out on "". Search for AGP or Accelerated Graphics Port. There are the advantages of an AGP over PCI.

Hi, if you were to use something like the GEFORCE FX 5200
graphics card, this would work OK for most low level games. However if you wish to play the top end games you would need to upgrade either your motherboard to one with an AGP slot or better still one with 2 PCI-E slots.

I have an ATI - Radeon AGP HD 3450 512 mb video card. can i use it in my hp compaq dc7600 ultra slim with any problems.? can someone please help me out.thanks.

Hi Michael,

The HP DC7600 Ultra Slim Desktop only has either onboard Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset graphics or a single PCI slot for you to add a PCI (not PCI-express) graphics card.

The system board does have a PCI-express slot, however this is not fully implimented by HP and is only used to run a secondary additional monitor from the onboard Intel Chipset graphics when used with an HP-specific adapter.

AGP is not present on the system board and is therefore not supported.

On a related note, also be aware that some PCI graphics cards required the PCI 2.2 bus standard to be supported in the PC - I have no idea if the Ultra-Slim actually supports this, so do further research to ensure compatability before purchase of any PCI graphics card for your machine.

Good luck!

I want to buy graphics card for hp dx2000 MT with p4 2.80GHz, 3GB RAM and windows 7 ultimate... I dont know which one to buy... HELP?

Due to the limited amount of power produced by your power supply (250 watts) and the fact that you appear not to have PCI Express of AGP video card slots on your motherboard, it is not a good idea to upgrade your graphics card in a an attempt to achieve better performance.
However, if your onboard (built-in) video card has stopped functioning properly, I would recommend this card as a replacement:
Or this one if you would like to connect to a monitor or especially a TV via HDMI:

I play online games (mmorpgs) and when I run these games I lag a lot. Now what is the problem? Should i buy a new graphics card? If so then which one would you recommend?

Find out what kind of interface your current one has, like PCI Express Or just PCI ect. Then go to best buy and buy the most expensive one you can afford with the same interface. If you have a built in graphics card then you may be stuck unless it has slot for an upgrade. Just see what slot your motherboard has for a graphics card before you buy one. If its an onboard but has a slot for a upgrade after installation turn off the onboard graphics card in your bios .

About the size of onboard graphic

Onboard-Video: Intel GMA 3100 Graphics Controller, w/ 256MB Shared Memory
Video Slots: 1x PCI-Express x16 Slot
source: Note: I quickly checked Asus's website and the manual (
) but it didn't appear to give a direct answer.

Also note that even if the motherboard supports both onboard+PCI-E, G31(GMA3100) graphics wouldn't help much at all, trust me. You'll want to buy a new PCI-E card if you plan on doing any gaming. Not knowing what game(s) you plan to play, your budget, and what processor you have makes it tough to suggest an exact video card. So, check out this site to select the best card for your budget and game play:

You can definitely get a real good card for under $100. Perhaps a Radeon HD 4850. Lastly, I highly recommend you buy from

I have a enbuild graphics card i cant play games . while installing it does not support.It shows error

Many of the onboard graphics solutions are not able to handle a majority of the popular games on the market today. Motherboard manufactures know this and so don't put too much thought into upgrading the onboard solutions, being that a great majority of avid gamers would by a graphics card anyway.

My first thought is to buy yourself a graphics card. You probably wont need anything overly special (although I am not sure of how much you may play games) but for decent beginner cards, they run you anywhere from $20-$80 these days. For a little more say ~$100, you can get yourself a decent card that can play most games on the market today. However, do take in mind what your motherboard can actually handle as far as slots go (PCI, AGP, PCI-E).

About graphics card slot..

The board has a pci express port on it. You can install any video card which uses the PCI-E x16 interface. Almost all new video cards use this interface.

Your board also has an onboard video card (ATI x300 model). You don't actually need a graphics card unless you want the better performance for games.

What Graphics card will fit in my Hp DC5700 Intel core2 Duo?

from what i can see about your model you can fit a 256mb or 512mb PCI Express graphics card either nvidia or ATI as long as it's pci express, but the details only show one slot so not much room for more expansion.
