I want to play prince of presia but i don t have graphic card


I assume you mean one of the newer Prince of Persia released in 2008. You will need a graphics card to play this game; there is no way around this. If you have a laptop, there's usually no way to upgrade the graphics card (unless you have an Alienware or other boutique laptop). If you have a desktop, a graphics card upgrade is relatively inexpensive and easy.

I need to have a latest graphics card in my IBM Thinkpad R52. Can I upgrade it or should I go for buying a new laptop instead?


Hi,

I recommend to buy new unit instead of upgrading it!

The old IBM Thinkpad cannot support anymore new graphic cards and the future applications coming and new hardwares.

How can i upgrade a integrated graphic card


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Integrated graphic cards can not be upgraded, these are build into the mainboard of the computer, only way to upgrade your graphic card is to replace the whole motherboard with a newer board.


Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Ekse

IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221NNG upgrade possiblity


This: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/get/system-requirements.aspx is a link to the system requiements. As for memory, I can't find out if it's DDR or DDR2. If you don't know either, try downloading a tool called CPU-Z. That should display DDR or DDR2, and I can then recommend something.
As for the graphics card, you could try to get an ATi 9000 series card somewhere.(maybe buy one on ebay? I doubt they still sell them new...) I have one too, in an old PC, and while it doesn't run any new games, it's fast enough for the casual user.

Graphic card for IBM X3400(7975I4S)


What type of card are you trying to install? Which slot have you tried it in? IBM servers have designated slots for specific card types like video adapters and RAID controllers. What's the exact model of your server (e.g. 8647-4AX) and what models of video cards do you have?

Desktop upgrade


Asus is a Solid MotherBoard manufacturer of mother boards. If you are looking for an add-on graphics card (I'm assuming you want to do some gaming), You would want to upgrade the memory for that motherboard to at least 1GIG which can be found here.

Graphics cards wise, I wouldn't advise anything higher then a $100 card... As that motherboard only supports 4x AGP (The type of connection your video card would use) and to get more for what you pay for, you really need a motherboard with an 8x AGP slot to get 100% of what you pay for. A Radeon 9950 at around $92 is the most you would want to put into a system that currently has a p4 2.66 ghz.

Can i change graphic card on my old IBM T20?


Good afternoon, Yan!
Wish I could give you better news, but unfortunately, the video card is a part of the motherboard and not replaceable.
