AGP card to replace inboard graphics card

Hi there, Thanks for stopping by. My son is studying Civil Engineering, so he is in need of a more powerful gpu card. My computer is a HP BRIO BA410, it has an Intel Pentium 3 with 512 MB ram. As far as a I know it has 4X slot. The question is can I install an AGP GeForce FX5200 card in it and replace the S3 inboard graphics hardware. Thanks in advance.

Yes, your GeForce is compatible with the BRIOs AGP 2X port. And there is no problem in using an 8X board in a 4X or 2X AGP slotted motherboard... it would only be a problem if you have a 1X AGP port which is rather old (fisrt agp ports on the market).

I replaced my motherboard with a A31G motherboard. The old motherboard has a video card (radeon 9550SE). Should I or can I install the video card on the A31G ? If so how ??


Looking at the specs for the 2 boards, its a no im afraid.
Your old board has an AGP graphics slot, your replacement has a PCI express and a AGP Pro slot. Its says this about the AGP Pro slot
AGP Pro
It is an official extension for cards that required more electrical power. It is a longer slot with additional pins for that purpose. AGP Pro cards were usually workstation-class cards used to accelerate professional computer-aided design applications employed in the fields of architecture, machining, engineering, simulations, and similar fields.

You wont be able to use the old card then. A new basic PCI express card is very cheap ( £20 or so), check the likes of this out http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/search/ref=sr_nr_p_36_0?bbn=14122251&qid=1278887259&rh=n%3A560798%2Cn%3A%21560800%2Cn%3A262739011%2Cn%3A296802011%2Cn%3A10392541%2Cp_36%3A138893031%2Cn%3A14122251%2Cn%3A14122281&rnid=389035011&low-price=15&high-price=25&x=13&y=5

ASUS Radeon 9600XT/TVD stop working need to replace.


An nVidia 7800 is the best agp card made, as agp has been taken over by pci-ex16
but any AGP x8 card will do, if its just for word processing and internet stuff just go with a cheaper one.
found on on ebay for £20 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NVIDIA-7800-GS-AGP-Graphics-card_W0QQitemZ380205251305QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_Computer_Components_Graphics_Video_TV_Cards_TW?hash=item5885ffbae9

Upgrade to an AGP Graphics card


Hi hes61, have you ever been to TigrerDirect? Here is an AGP 8x 1.5v card.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1892411&CatId=318
& this card
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4297004&CatId=318
Here is the hole page of AGP cards from TigerDirect.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=318&name=AGP&

The 3.0volt AGP cards are much older. All these voltages refer to the AGP slot. Many AGP cards support the 1.5v AGP slot & some AGP cards may need more power. The AGP cards that need more power to run will have a power port. Some use a power port just like a floppy disk drive & others will use a standard 4-pin power plug just like a hard disk drive. It varies between cards & some may not need the extra power.

Good luck hes61!
Thank you for using fixa.

GRAPHICS CARD


The P5PE-VM has an AGP 8x expansion slot. So AGP 8x graphics cards would be compatible. AGP is old and got replaced by PCI Express. But you can still buy AGP cards. the Nvidia 7800 is the best AGP card you can get, because Nvidia stopped creating the technology for AGP cards with this one.
