Hey,

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,
Sincerely,

What graphics card is in the imedia 5064


I think as supplied, this PC uses the on-board graphics (built into to the m/b). As this PC is 2nd hand, it may already contain a graphics card.
To fins about your system easily without opening the case you could go to www.piriform.com and download a program "speccy" (free). Run this and it will tell you the details of your system including the graphics card type and detail of the memory. The simple memory can be obtained from Windows > My computer > (right click on) properties if I remember correctly).
Next go here
http://www.wowwiki.com/System_requirements You will find the minimum system requirements for playing WoW. You may find that to upgrade not only the graphics card but also the RAM. If you need and decide to upgrade the graphics card be sure to shoose one that is compatible with your computer with your computer/motherboard. I suspect (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/69141/packard-bell-imedia-5064-motherboard/) it may be very similar to this one
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1335#ov but I don't know for certain. This page contains all the details for that motherboard. Note that speccy will give you some detail about your motherboard and memory types required as well.
Depending on which graphics card you decide (this may be helpful http://www.playtool.com/pages/vidtable/table.html ) on you may need to upgrade your power supply (PSU). It's very easy to do this; more difficult is to decide on which PSU to choose. You may need to some research (as with the graphics cards and memory). There is some good second hand stuff - PSUs graphics cards memory often available through ebay but caveat emptor - read listings very thoroughly and carefully, don't pay too much (set your limit before you look).

I want to update my graphyc card to ASUS PCI-E ATIRADEON 7770. IS IT COMPATIBLE WITH MY MOTHERBOARD PACKARD BELL RIO ID0027?


Hi there,
If your PC has a PCI-Express graphics slot, then there should be no reason why the graphics card should not work. Make sure you have the correct drivers for your graphics card and it should all be fine.
Best wishes,
Graeme.

The best you can fit is an AGP 8X type card. They are difficult to find now, so the prices of decent cards are going up. Your computer is about 3 generations behind, You would get better graphics performance by buying a new motherboard, CPU and memory bundle. It would be cheaper in the long run, as you could then upgrade the graphics card in the future and then upgrade the CPU as well. You can still keep the case and other computer peripherals you already use. But if you want an AGP card look on the Auction sites.

I have a Toshiba L355D-S7825. I run Windows 7 on it. I want to update my graphics card to Shader 3. Will my computer support this? Is it motherboard compatible? What's a good card with this...


The shader 3 mode is a inbuilt option that is designed within the graphic cards (i.e. intergrated or slotted cards). This function usually use for high graphics gaming for PCs. You cannot upgrade the Graphic card to get this Shader 3 options for your Laptop. The best options you can do is to update the drivers & DirectX to the latest for your laptop "ATI Radeon™ 3100 Graphics" intergrated graphic card.

Hope it helps.

Changing the hard disk will not give you any noticeable performance gain, only some extra space. Just get the biggest you can find.
On the other hand your system could definitely be improved by a new video card. The best one, even a little overkill, for your system is something like

Inspiron 1100 graphics upgrade


The Inspiron 1100 has an integrated graphics card, whereas the 51xx series are dedicated, so there is no graphic card upgrade option for the 11xx series.

Video memory upgrade for an Acer Aspire 5100.


Sorry, but if it has intergrated video as you say then video card is NOT upgradable, simply because it does not have a card (It is intergrated into motherboard). That unit can take up to 4GB of ram 2GBX2 DDR2 PC25300 200pin SODIMM $56.00@ crucial.com. It is able to share an dditional 256mb of memory from system for a total of 512mb memory on video. With a little research u should also be able to upgrade the cpu.
Hope this helps good luck,
Dave

My monitor will only go up to 1280 x 1024


Have you just upgraded the card

What card were you using before? 

Did you uninstall that via device manager first before putting in new one? Use drivercleaner pro to remove all traces of old drivers too...free progy :)

If you didnt just upgrade then try starting it in safe mode....press F8 during boot.

When i boot my computer nothing happens


You may have ahad a glitch in the system, go into your bios (F2 or DEL)on boot up and and go into the menu pci and peripherals or similair and look down to the primary graphics controller to see if you are able to set it to your agp card from onboard. If so save settings and exit and try again, but theres noting to say that your graphics card isn't faulty.
