Need more power from video card for gaming


The HD3200 on-board (integrated on the motherboard) graphics on this older machine will not support many games. You need to add a separate graphics card to this unit and disable the on-board graphics. Decide on how much you can afford for a new card and check out tomshardware.com VGA charts to see the best performing video card in your price range. You might also consider a newer machine as this is probably about 5 years old. Whatever machine you get, make sure you do not depend on on-board graphics if you want to do gaming.

Can u replace the Asus U50A graphics card and a list of the upgradable cards?


Quick answer : No. This laptop is not upgradable as far as graphics, few are in fact. You can still play older games (2006 & before) If you need better graphics, you need a computer equipped with nvidia or ati graphics. If want to play all the newest games you need a higher-end machine such as alienware or equivalent.

Last year both my sons bought an eMachine, EL1300, desktop PC. I am looking at upgrading the processor, the Motherboards are both WMCP61M's. I was wondering if I could replace the existing AMD Athlon...


I would suggest you not to go for a processor upgrade, if you want to play games. You should consider upgrading your graphics Card(GPU). The processor that you mentioned above is enough for playing High-end games when combined with a good graphics Card. Upgrading your processor will boost very little game performance. But when you will upgrade your graphics Card. You will notice great boost in game performance and more new games will be supported. Two major manufacturer of Graphics Card are NVIDIA and ATi. You can opt any one of them. Nvidia GPUs are considered as a Good Performer. But also ATi is known for its long lasting life. Both the manufacturers produces a long list of models. Opt for the one that suits your Budget and the performance.
Hope this will help for sure.....

ATI AGP card and Compaq Presario S3100NX with open AGP Slot


Hi,
This particular model of the system is basic home use system not built for games.
You can put in either a PCI graphics card or an AGP 4x graphics card that should not take more than 1.5v of power.
The max you can put is 128 MB , you can try the 256 MB, but i would suggest against it .

Thanks for using fIxya

I bought to my son PC CD ROM Wildlife Park 2. I tried to install program according to the recomendation. If I tried to start the program I am receiving the information that vertex and pixel shader version...


Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. It must be supported by the graphics card. Sounds like your graphics card will not work with the game you purchased. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it.
The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3)

What are thebest graphiccards to put in to fujitsu seimens scenic 1331 computers


your pc has a 4x AGP speed port, so any graphics card that is 8x and 4x backward compatable with atleast 256MB memory(this is the graphic cards own memory) will be ok, the most common makers are ATI or Nvidia. But remember that you will also need as much system memory to help run the more graphics hungry games, your's will take upto 1GB of system memory, as the system still has to run along side the graphics to process it.
