Question about Graphics Cards

3D Video Card

I would like to upgrade my video card, but want to chose one that will work. I emailed HP and this is the answer that I received.

I have verified your PC specifications and found that the PC is bundled with "argon-ULA" motherboard with GeForce4-MX420 AGP card.

However, the system specifications tell that you can install any PCI graphics cards or AGP card. If you want to install PCI 3D graphic card then that can be installed in the PCI slot. Please note that you may also have to upgrade the power supply as some of these graphics cards consume more power. Hence it is recommended you ask for the power requirements of the card, while purchasing so that you can upgrade to the recommended power supply.

Before I conclude I would like to list the important things that have to be considered before installing a video card:

1 Select a compatible PCI express x16 video card.
2 Check the minimum requirements the computer must meet.
3 Compatible power supply required.

You can purchase the video card at any local computer store or visit a HP reseller.

Can you suggest some graphic cards that I might choose from?

Thanks,

Judy

    Between $100.00 and $200.00, if possible. Might go a little higher if it would improve the performance.

So which video card do i need? i have 845gl motherboard . before installing this video card (rage XL 8mb pci) my pc plays videos and most 3d game very (even gta sanandreas) efficiently but now it is not...


Hi,

The ATI Rage XL 8MB PCI video card is a very old and low power video card.

PCI graphics cards are not as fast as AGP graphics cards so if your motherboard has an AGP slot (it's the slot closest to the CPU and is usually coloured brown) then that would give you better performance.

These days AGP has been superceded by PCI-Express but since your motherboard does not have a PCI-Express slot then the best graphics card for it would be something like this one:

Hope this helps, please rate my answer :)

Hello. I'm currently using ATI MACH64 as a standard VGA adapter. When I check DirectX diagnostics, it shows 3D acceleration and 3Draw acceleration as unavailable. I have DirectX 11 installed. I want...


This is an ancient video processor that has no DirectX support whatsoever -it doesn't even have 3D capabilities, it's strictly a 2D chip. You really need to upgrade.

How to solve my 3D graphic since my RAM was 4G... sometimes my laptop lag when i playing latest games... should i buy a graphic card for it or any suggestion how to boost my 3D perfomance...


For most laptops, you cannot replace/upgrade the graphics adapter ("video card").

Nor can you replace/upgrade the CPU.

How much RAM in your laptop?
Buy more, to "maximize" the amount of RAM that your motherboard will support.

I have a dell c610 laptop, and want to put in a 3d graphics card, what do you recommend and can it be replaced?


because this is a laptop you can only upgrade a couple things, and video is not one of them. You can upgrade memory or install a bigger hard drive but that is all the options you get.
Sorry

Upgrade graphics card for hp compaq presario S7300UK


Any PCI video card will work provided that you have the PSU to support it.

All video cards are built for different specs (i.e. cards for gaming, cards for video editing, etc) so there is no "max card" per say.

Your only limitation is that you can't run PCI-e cards which are the newer cards out there.

Your card or driver does not support directx9.0c 3D acceleration


Time for a video card upgrade. You are now two (almost 3) generations of video cards behind.If you are truly referring to a VooDoo card, you definitely need to upgrade to something newer. If the game you are trying to play says you must have a DirectX 9.0c compatible card, you will need to get a new video card. The good news is that just about any card you can buy new would be at least DirectX 9c compatible. The bad news is, I am guessing your card is PCI card. That being the case, you will be hard pressed to find a new one for sale.

Choppy play with high quality video


A replacemnet video card would help some, but you still have the problem of the 440 mhz processor.

There is not a lot you can do about the processor outside of rebuilding the whole computer. If for some reason that is not an option for you, then yeah, a $20 video card from ebay might give some relief (if you know what to get.. AGP or PCI), but don't be surprised if your processor is just too taxed to render high quality video at the proper rate.

Will this video card work on this motherboard?


Yes, it will work but you need a PSU that is more then 500 WATTS , I recommend Apex or ICEBERG PSU, other then that you should be okay. Make sure you download the latest bios upgrades and also make sure you hvae pleanty of cooling fans.

It is not possible to upgrade graphics in the D620. The GPU is integrated onto the mainboard, so the only way to change GPU is to change the mainboard.
