Run multiple monitors

The specs on this machine don't mention an AGP slot. It has 3 PCI slots and 1 PCIe x 16 slot. I'm assuming the GeForce graphics card is in the PCIe slot. I need to run 3 monitors. I want to get a 256mb graphics card that will run 2 monitors and replace the existing card with a 256mb card. I can't find a 256mb card that fits into a regular PCI slot. Does this machine have an AGP slot? what is the best way to run 3 monitors? If someone can help me it would be really great

Re: run multiple monitors


Does the output matter? D-sub or DVI?

Is the "GeForce MX4000" compatible with the Dell Ins prion 560?

Which brand and model of GeForce MX4000 are you looking at? There are some that use an AGP interface; these are not compatible with your machine. The PCI versions will work depending on your OS. The drivers are in the Nvidia Legacy drivers list.

The Dell Inspiron 560 has only one PCI connector. You'll need to check if the slot is occupied and remove that card. (Note: the 300 W power supply that the Inspiron 560 came with should drive this card. However, the power output has to give 18A. You may need to upgrade the power supply.)

You could consider a different card with a PCIe x16 bus. You have one slot for that type of graphics card

I hope this helps.

I want to swap my graphic card from a hp to a emachine

If you give me the model of the hp, the e-machine and the graphics card I could tell if it will work.
There are three types of cards ranked from slow/oldest to fast/new
  • PCI
  • AGP (dedicated graphics)
  • PCIe (16x slots are for graphics cards)

Almost everyone computer for the last 10 or so years will have PCI slots, usually only one no a days
AGP was a dedicated slot for graphics cards also outdated and anything newer than 2004-5 will probably not have one.
PCIe came out in 2004 and replaced AGP.

Is the video card PCIe compatible? I just assumed that by its age that it would be a standard PCI. I was wrong. Allan

System features of HP xw4400 Workstation on official HP web site state:

Expansion Slot
6 slots: 1 PCI Express (x16) Graphics slot, 1 PCI Express (x16 mechanically, x4 electrically), 1 PCI Express (x1) and 3 full-length legacy PCI slots

So it should work fine with modern PCIe graphic cards

I would like to add a hd-port to my emachine T1641-02w. What is compatible for the computer?
Above is a link to specs for your system. It comes with a PCI Express port which would allow the install of a graphics card. Reading the specs, it mentions the NVDIA GeForce 7050 which if installed on your system, would allow hd output. If you can't gain HD at this point you may want to consider insatlling a garphics card in the PCIe slot.

Wheres the video card located and what does it look like

Hi this will depend on weather you have an separate graphics card rather than an on-board one, if it is on-board you will not be able to replace it as the chip set for the graphics card are on the motherboard and you will have to replace the lot if the graphics have gone u/s, however if you have a PCIe, or an AGP connected graphics card, it should be in the first slot on the motherboard, open up the PC, and you should see the motherboard with lots of chips and a big fan, then you will have some slot's these are either AGP, PCI or PCIe slots, normally the AGP slot is brown in colour, the PCI slots are normally white, and the PCIe slot is normally blue or green, just really depends on the manufacturer of the board, the graphics card will be in the first ( top ) slot, if you have no "addin" cards then everything is on-board, and if its an e-machine, i dare say it will all be on-board...hope this helps

How can i tell the difference between pci slots and pcie slots

The Peripheral Component Interconnect or more commonly known as PCI is a standard for connecting a lot of devices inside your computer to extend its capabilities. Devices like sound cards, modems, NIC, TV Tuners, and some video cards have at some point or another have used the PCI port.
PCI express ( PCI-E ) is a much improved version in terms of speed. PCIe uses a serial interface instead of the old parallel interface used by PCI. It also utilizes individual buses for each of the devices connected to it instead of a shared one like what PCI uses. The difference in speed is quite huge when comparing the standard PCI slot which runs at 133MB/s to a 16 slot PCIe that can send or receive up to 16GB/s.

The most common use for PCIe nowadays is with graphics cards which benefits hugely from the huge bandwidth provided by the interface.
1. PCIe is much faster compared to PCI.
2. PCIe uses a serial interface while PCI uses a parallel interface.
3. PCIe speed is classified into lanes, each capable of delivering up to 1GB/s data transfer.
4. PCI slots are standardized while PCIe slots vary depending on the number of lanes the slot is intended for.
5. Despite PCIe superiority, most manufacturers still use the PCI standard for their devices.

Unlike PCI slots which are the same size for all devices, PCIe slots can differ depending on which form factor it accepts. The longest would be the 16 lane slot and understandably, the shortest is for the x1 devices.

I hope this much information is enough for you to understand the difference between both of them. If you need any more help let me know.. !

Ok, i have two things to ask 1: Where is the video card on a emachines W3503? 2: Could a video card swap be done between a W3503 and a W3052? Thank you for viewing :)

1. The emachines W3503 has an integrated ATI Radeon™ X300 based graphics card. It has also a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available.

2. The emachines W3052 has a NVIDIA® GeForce®4™ MX graphics card. I'm not sure whether it is integrated or not, but I'm sure that if it is not, it will be an AGP graphics card. Since The emachines W3503 has a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available for installing a graphics card, the swapping of graphics cards between the 2 machines is not possible since they support different types of graphics cards.
