HP Compaq d530 SFF PC Desktop Problem - Graphics card: Updgrade

I have am looking to upgrade the on board grahics by use of the AGP slot or by use of one of the two PCI slots. Can you recommend a particular card that will fit inside this SFF PC. I need a card of DirectX 7.0 or high preferably? and unsurprisingly I am not looking to pay the earth!

    Alas my friend I do not have a PCI express slot, only two straight forward PCI slots. That said I think I have cracked it, by ordering a Club 3D GeForce 6200 - Graphics adapter - GF 6200 - PCI low profile - 128 MB GDDR1 - Digital Visual Interface (DVI) - TV out from The low profile and the fact that the cooling grill will be facing away from my wireless network adaptor in the adjacent slot should be a winner.

    Thanks for the advice

    You can try HERE

    Just choose any one that suits your budget and the memory you require. Anything 128MB and above will be good. They are all basically the same, so basically, the choice is yours ;)

    I also would appreciate if you could change my rating from "thanks for trying" to at least a "Helpful" or a "Fixya", as these can adversely affect our standings here at FixYA. (We dont get paid to do this , you know...its all voluntary service :))

Sorry to raise this thread up again, but i was wondering if the d530 SFF powersupply (185 W, 230 v) is able to support the 256mb version of the Club 3D Geforce 6300 AGP - graphics card?

I used a GeForce 6200 and removed the bracket and the VGA connector. It works greats and I have had no problems with the small power supply. I have read that some of these cards came with an optional low profile bracket but I have never found one and ended up making my own out of a blank.

I wanted to know whether an AGP card which has a DDR2 or DDR3 graphics memory is compatible with a HP D530 SFF (which only supports DDR main memory since it has an Intel 865G chipset - ICH5)

The on-board graphics memory is separate from the system memory and should have no impact.

NOTE: You DO need to make sure the card will fit into the machine. From what I see your box will only take low-profile cards. So at least your AGP card needs to be low-profile to fit into the unit.

Here is a link to a number of different manuals for the unit.

So I have a HP Compaq d530 SFF PC Desktop problem. I checked out the HP tech specifications: Specifications - Graphics Is...

"Graphics, is there an upper limit on how much you can upgrade a video card?"

Yes, and no gammon_ben.

Your computer uses an AGP graphics card.
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards. (1.5 volt)

Goes in the brown AGP slot on the motherboard above the three white PCI slots.

The best AGP graphics cards are the AGP 8X ones.

Sky's the limit, just depends on your pocketbook.

Yes, so far.

When using Integrated Graphics, the graphics chipset on the motherboard borrows some of the System Resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program being ran.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S. Operating System)

Let's use an intensive graphics program for an example, a Game, and Windows XP.

The Processor and Ram Memory is supporting Windows.

They're also supporting the characters of the game, the shading of the game, and the background of the game, just to name a few characteristics.

Due to the resources needed from the system resources, (Processor and Ram Memory), from the game, the game will lag, or freeze up.

Using a graphics card frees up the system resources.
A graphics card has it's own Processor (GPU), and Ram Memory. (Graphics memory)
(GPU = Graphics Processing Unit)

However, the Processor still has to utilize the information from the graphics card. Even though it, and the Ram Memory have been freed up, there is a limit on how much information a Processor can handle at one time.

Your Processor may be an Intel Celeron, or Pentium 4.
These are single core processors, and have their limitations.

HOWEVER one more time, you are just speaking of operating a 40 inch widescreen (?) monitor with 1080p.
A really decent AGP graphics card can handle that with no sweat, and watching videos.
Some of the newer intensive games may be a problem.

Here is an example of a decent AGP 8X graphics card, that is Low Profile. (Low in height)

ATI Radeon 9250 PCI card not recognised.

Make sure the slot isn't disabled either by jumper settings or in the bios, and the card is securely inserted in the slot. If these aren't the case, you have yourself a bad card, or a bad slot.

Desktop Casings are lower enough that can't be closed when inserting Cards like your Graphics card. Change your desktop casing to Tower Casing so you can freely install your Graphics card to the graphics card of your motherboard.
