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 upgrade the Graphic Card , Ram, and Hard disk please advise me , is it possible to istall dedicated graphic card and What Ram slot is there DDR1 or 2 and what size i can upgrade. Further what...


Graphic card Just make sure you plug your monitor into the new card and the hard drive is easy to do remove the old hard drive and it will tell you what type it is.
Ram you need to go to the computers manufactors website(I would have looked it up for you but you didn't say what brand and model# it is) and look under support for upgrades to see what type of ram your computer uses you can not just put in any type you want.

Need to find out the size of and type of graphic card in my rs2800


The type is Integrated you can go to your devices menu tick on the video card then tick on properties to find out in the device manager. Which can be found int he control panel menu. You can find out all that information in the device manager. It will tell you the specs not all of them but close enough.
I personally do not like using Integrated cards on the board. It seems your curious about something with graphics not a mind reader but the question assumes for me that you are possibly wanting to upgrade the card. You cannot upgrade that card it is a board card. If you have a PCI or AGP slot available you can upgrade going that route make sure to use the proper video card for your viewing pleasure as well as a match for your computer..........John

What type of graphics card would I need to upgrade


Open the case.
Is there an add-on video-card, or is the video "integrated" onto the motherboard?

If not, then look at the "empty" slots for add-on cards.

The WHITE coloured slots will take a PCI (not PCI-Express) video-card.

If there is a BROWN slot that does *NOT* line-up with the ends of the WHITE slots, the slot will take an AGP video-card.

If there a DARK-coloured slot that *ALMOST* lines-up with the end of the WHITE slots, the slot will take a PCI-express video-card.

I want to upgrade my pc


Hi,

The brand of RAM is not important, it's the type, you'll need SDRAM for that and an AGP4X type of graphics card... here's some several selections
GEFORCE4MX440SE/6M AGP4X
SIS 315, 256-BIT AGP 4X VGA CARD
GREEN ATI 7000 SERIES CARD

Hope this helps... Just don't forget to rate - thanks.

Looking to buy a new graphics card


You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.
