Question about PC Desktops
I have a Compaq Presario SR1719UK, I want to upgrade the graphics card, but there is no card visable in the slots. I therefore assume the system has a built in Graphics card which I believe is ATI Radeon Xpress 200 graphics. Will it be straight forward to add a Geforce 8500GT 1GB DDR2 (apart from changing the power supply to 400w and adding 1 GB RAM?)
You should be OK with the graphics card as long as you choose a PCI-e version. If you are confident enough to change the power supply and the RAM you are OK to do a graphics card. If your power supply is at least 350W you should be OK. The HP website does not specify what the power supply is so I cant advise on this. The graphics you mention is not graphics but the chipset on the motherboard. If you seat the graphics card securely without too much force and then power up your pc and load the drivers from the disk which comes with the card you should have no problems.
