Graphics card help

I am wondering if my computer will support a graphics card that I am interested in. I have the link for the card I want to get but I am not sure about my computer's BUS type, watts, and all that. I have a Dell Inspiron 530.

Graphics card and psu upgrades


In general I would never recommend to upgrade a fixed (mass production or brand built) PC. Also with these specs if your are trying to make a gaming PC out of it you are going to be disappointed. Never the less if you still want this I can only suggest to go for the bigger PSU like GS800 so the GPU could work a bit better plus a set of ram for a total of 8.

Can I change or upgrade the Video Card on my Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E?


No Bull, no internal upgrading.

One may be led to think so, due to computer manufacturers just abusing the heck out of their 'Advertising license'.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel GM965,

I was looking for instructions in the manual about graphics boards but there is no mention of them. I bought the computer about 18 months ago as a bare bones desktop but recently I wondered if I should...


If you only have the onboard video (Intel GMA 3100) then anything video/graphics related will be affected.

Your board has 1 PCI-E slot so adding a budget Graphics Card will be no problem for you. If all you are really using it for is your iplayer you do not need to buy a 'performance card'. Something as economical as the GeForce 210 or anything about that range will be both cheap and effective for the need you are stating.

Graphic Cards are actually pretty easy to install and Windows can auto-install the drivers for most cards (personally I prefer to go to the chipmaker web site and get a pure driver; example - if its a GeForce card I go to nvidia.com and get an unmodified driver rather than use the ones that come with the card).

If you have never put in a graphics card here are a couple links that can help you.

I was just wondering where to put my Graphics card in my computer :S In one of these white slots? The only number i could find on it was E210882


I depends upon the type of graphics card you have purchased. The white slots are PCI expansion slots
and if the there is a longer slot in the middle of the motherboard next to the PCI slots, then it will be a AGP expansion slot.
APG graphics card are better graphics cards and these slots are designed for these graphics cards.

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

Ati radeon graphics


Um, well, I think you'll get them at ATi's website. If you have the card pre-installed in the computer when it was out of the box, then you can even find the drivers on the manufacturer's website, along with those of all your devices that came with it.

Computer and video card memory/ram


Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.
