Graphic Processor Upgrade

I just received a new DELL SP2208WFP Flat Panel Monitor for my Gateway MATXHRN MDW E4100 E6000 model computer. Everyone else in the office has DELL's ... no problem for them, but my computer doesn't support the 1680x1050 screen resolution. What minimum upgrade do I need to get the right resolution? My graphics controller is an Intel 82865G, version Thanks.

Try to install the latest drivers here:*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

And attempt to use the intel application in the system tray to configure the resolution, not the windows display utility.

Can I upgrade the video card on a Gateway E4300 to work with Shader 3 graphics (Eve Online)? Or do I have to buy a new computer?

You only really need to upgrade the video card and the PSU (most video cards need more power than what most companies like dell and gateway provide.). So no need to buy a new computer.

according to the manufacture your card has the resolution up to 2048 X 1536 that is higher than what the monitor is telling you to set your resolution to. try going into your display options and ajust the resolution down to 1600 X 900. Also since your monitor is a dell an new it should come with an set-up disk for that monitor that should once intalled set the monitor to the correct graphics setting for you so you do not have to go through and do it manually. did your come with a disk? If not here is the link to download the drivers for your monitor.

Upgrade pc it is the graphic card must be a AGP one,I suggest a ATI Radeon doesnt consume to much energy (ex:9550,9250,9600 or  low end Nvidia cards)..if you can still find them on the market
and for the processor you have to ask for a Pentium 4 socket 478.
however I suggest you to change the power supply and to by a new real power one like a 400W Akasa or Chieftec.
good luck
however you should consult the vendor for the further information on the compatibilities before you buy something.
