Want to upgrade vid card.

Need to know if AGP slot is 2.0?

Posted by on

  • Hi_way Feb 06, 2008

    Sorry, but guess I didn't provide enough details. Yes, the AGP is 4x. In looking at some cards, they warn the AGP slot must be 2.0 Compliant. Tried manual, ASUS web site, net search for spec's. Can't find info. (Why yes, I'm a novice.) Thanks for answers. Hi_way.

Hi,

To my knowledge, the AGP slot is rated 4 X while the 3 root hubs for 6 USB ports are 2.0 (but depends on the driver(s) used).

Good luck and kind regards.

Looking for an upgrade for my video card?


The system has PCI card slots. You can buy any PCI graphics card and upgrade your system.

Compatability


You have an AGP expansion slot for a graphics card.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)
It uses either 1x, 2X, or 4X graphics cards. Since the only AGP graphics cards out there are 4X or 8X, the 1X, and 2X are moot points. (They were also Junk anyway!)

Your AGP graphics slot only supports AGP graphics cards that are 1.5 volts. There are AGP graphics cards out there, that are Universal. Universal in that they will run as AGP 8X, (.8 volts), or AGP 4X, (1.5 volts)

This is an example:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4103516&CatId=318

Don't expect to play the high end new intense games with this. I'm afraid you'll have to update your motherboard, processor, ram memory, and a better graphics card to do that.

(Example? XFX Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard, Intel Core2 Duo E8200 cpu, Corsair XMS2 PC6400 ram memory, 1GB x2 of them, (DDR2 at 800MHz), and XFX Geforce 9800GTX+, vid card. (Plus OCZ SteathXStream 600W power supply)
This won't break the bank, and will slam some games to the wall!)

Looking to upgrade video. is there a limit to uprade old mboard


Only cards that work with this board are AGP 4x graphics cards or possiblly AGP 8x cards that are backwards compatible. If you buy an 8x card do your research to make sure it's backwards compatible before purchase. Newer graphics cards are pci-express x16 or pci-e 2. These will not work with your board. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

I need to upgrade my graphics card but i don't know what to get


Hi
Is the graphic card on the motherboard directly or is it a card in a PCI or AGP slot?
If it is direcly inclued whith the motherboard you must go to the constructor website and download the updated driver if exist.
If it is in a separately slot as AGP you must to know the model of this as NVIDIA GEFORCE,...and go to their website to download the right driver for your operating system.

How do i install a better graphics card


Start by Identifying what type of Card you need to buy. The Manual would be Extremely helpful in identifying What type of Video card slot you have. If that option is out you can look in the device manager and that should tell you what type.

There are many types For any modern Cards your Hoping for an AGP or PCIe Slot bare minimum you need a pci slot.

If you have a Vesa or ISA slot you'd be better off spending money on a new Motherboard & CPU

Once you know what type of card to buy PCI, AGP, or PCIe go out and look for the best card that fits your budget and that your PC meets its requirements

Most new Vid cards require a power supply connection or sometimes two or a special power supply adapter in addition to the available card slot PCIe comes in different speeds x1 x8 an x16 Make sure you have the right one that your card needs before buying. AGP likewise comes in 2 varieties AGP and AGP2 they have a different pin count on their edge connector so make sure what connector it has. PCI just about every semi modern PC has at least 2 PCI slots question is are the currently filled with other cards

Once you've purchased your card, you need to determine if you have an integrated video card.
This would be a video connection that is built into your motherboard.
If you do then you need to look up how to enter your BIOS to disable it (Usually pressing<Delete> or <F12> during boot up. Then go through and change the on board video card to disabled

press <F10> to save and exit
power down PC
Unplug power cord
Remove case cover and install new Video card
Replace case cover and plug back in
Boot up PC
Get Operating system up
insert the CD that came with the new card to install drivers and utilities (Another alternative is to go to the website for the GPU or card manufacturer and get the latest drivers) [ often times the drivers on the install disc are already outdated]

reboot ....... Congratulations your need Vid Card is install Now go play that game your dying to beat ;)

Hope this helps

sounds like 8x agp. go to new egg.com. good deals on vid cards there. unfortunately for you the agp doesent get into the higher end video cards. nor does the standard pci. the transfer rates just aren't fast enough. but unless you are doing serious gaming either pci or agp will give you about the same frame rates.

Video card upgrade


Relevant link

Yes it does have an AGP slot, which you can confirm easily by looking at the motherboard. The AGP slot would be found at the top of the available slots and is brownish in color and slight smaller than the several white PCI slots.

As for what card to put in, that depends on your budget and needs.
If you're a gamer, spend as much as you can and go with a N-Vidia based AGP card.

Please rate this as solved once you've read it, unless you have further questions, then post another comment.
Thanks!
