Question about Motherboards
I have a packard bell 355 wih a rio 3 motherboard and intergrated radeon 1100 graphics and wish to know what type of card i can upgrade to.
From the looks of your system, Its a pentium D 915 CPU, with integrated graphics.
From the spec sheets, you should be able to upgrade to even an 8800 series, although that would require you to purchase a higher wattage power supply.
My recommendation is:
if you want graphics grunt for later model games, (i.e shooters like CoD4) the card you need (without needing a new PSU) would be the 8600gt. This is an excellent card and does not require external power.
If you want a cost-effective option, go with the 8500gt or an ati (amd) something equivalent. They arent the fastest cards out, but they will do a better job than the integrated graphics.
Hope that helps,
