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.

Upgrading my Video card

AGP is the older slot, PCI (Not express) is a dinosaur, you'll be lucky if you could find a PCI video card these days and if you did they are terrible in performance. A good card that I would recommend is an Radeon X850 AGP, you will find this card performs quite well and is inexpensive on ebay.
Good luck

Want to upgrade Video card

By the specs your machine doesn't support AGP so you'll have to go with a PCI card with S-Video out. This link will give you a list of ATI Radeon cards available on ebay to accomplish this task.

NOTE: That list will also bring up a list of PCI-E cards, your machine requires PCI, make sure you select the correct model.

Good luck!
