Question about AMD Sempron 2800, 2.0 GHz 2800+ (SDC2800DUT3D) OEM / Unboxed Processor
Dont know how to do It.
Just need It to download
and play free games
This will all depend on what the motherboard of your computer will except. There are three ways or types of cards to install. PCI (Oldest) AGP (Old but Good) and PCI-Express x16 (New and Best).
When you go to you local electronics store and look at video cards, the box will indicate which type of card is in the box.
If You open your computers access panel, you will see the ports in which have to upgrade your pc. PCI is usually white. AGP is usually brown and PCI-Express is usually black, blue or yellow. If you have your model number of you PC, you can go to their website and find the specs of the PC to find which ports you have.
Hint: If you take the panel off and have a flashlight, the ports on the inside are labeled. The print is always white in color and very small print, so it may be hard to read.
If all else fails, open the panel on your computer, take a good, close, bright picture and email it to me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will let you know what you got to work with. Or, having the model number of your pc or motherboard will help aslo!
As far as installing the video card, very simple granted you know what type of card to put in.
If needed, you remove the old one and pop the new one in. When windows loads and says it has found new hardware, you can tell windows to look for drivers on the internet. If that doesnt work, the video card will come with a CD. Pop that bad boy and follow the on-screen-instructions when the setup program starts.

If thats all your doing is free games then you shouldnt need to upgrade to anything fancy first you need to find out what ports your pc has and what you need, theres pci, pci express 1 or 16x and agp find out that and go from there once you have that go find a nice little video card and crack open the case and find your port unscrew the little metal cover on the back of the system and plug your new card in there screw the card down and plug your monitor into the new card and boot the system and use the provided cd to install it the rest of the way
