Hi,
This is not a software problem. The problem lies in the motherboard.

The motherboard which you are using is an AL440LX motherboard which supports a maximum of 384MB of RAM. The computer will not recognize any more RAM. In order to use 384MB, you will have to add a 128MB RAM along with the 256MB already present and not any more !!
This is the solution !!

So which video card do i need? i have 845gl motherboard . before installing this video card (rage XL 8mb pci) my pc plays videos and most 3d game very (even gta sanandreas) efficiently but now it is not...


Hi,

The ATI Rage XL 8MB PCI video card is a very old and low power video card.

PCI graphics cards are not as fast as AGP graphics cards so if your motherboard has an AGP slot (it's the slot closest to the CPU and is usually coloured brown) then that would give you better performance.

These days AGP has been superceded by PCI-Express but since your motherboard does not have a PCI-Express slot then the best graphics card for it would be something like this one:

Hope this helps, please rate my answer :)

Graphics card for D 101 GGC intel mobo/2.66/p-4/ram 512


Good news, you can upgrade the graphics card with almost any current PCIe (PCI Express) video card. Once you install a new graphics card in your system, the ATI Radeon x200 will be disabled automatically, as per the manual.

The one caveat is that the board is not PCIe 2.0 compliant, so any video card that requires PCIe 2.0 compliance will not work. This is not an issue as almost all modern graphics cards work on PCIe 1.0. However, make sure to check the requirements o fthe card before you buy it.

As for the most suitable graphics card for you, its hard to say without knowing what tasks you wish to use this computer for and what is your budget. If you are only using it for office tasks, then the onboard graphics processor is more than enough for your use.

I should mention, that the motherboard processor support constrains you to the P4 series of CPUs. This is fine for moderate tasks, but if your gola is to play a game like Crysis, then even the most powerful, multiGPU graphics card will only make the game playable. You will probably never be able to max out your frames per second.

That said, the board supports up to a 3.4ghz CPU, which is fast enough to play almost every modern game if you upgrade to a powerful graphics card.

If you wish to do 3D graphics design, I would not recomend upgrading the video card for this purpose. Video rendering and processing stil does rely on the CPU. However, if you look into nvidia's CUDA framekwork, it is possible to offload rendering to the GPU. This is probably not worth the effort unless you are relaly short on cash.

Bottom line is, yes you can upgrade no problem. As for the best video card, I do need to know he reason you wish to upgrade the video card.

Choppy play with high quality video


A replacemnet video card would help some, but you still have the problem of the 440 mhz processor.

There is not a lot you can do about the processor outside of rebuilding the whole computer. If for some reason that is not an option for you, then yeah, a $20 video card from ebay might give some relief (if you know what to get.. AGP or PCI), but don't be surprised if your processor is just too taxed to render high quality video at the proper rate.

More Ram for graphics


You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.
