This is HP Support, and the Product Specifications page for the Pavilion A340N desktop computer,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_rule=16890&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=374776

After you click on the above link, on the Product Specifications page, left-click on -
Motherboard Specifications, P4SD-LA (Stingray)

Scroll down the page to the heading -

Expansion Slots

You will see you have 1 AGP slot.

Accelerated Graphics Port.

MUCH better technology, than used in a PCI expansion slot.

Scroll down to the motherboard illustration, and the motherboard photo.
In the illustration look right above PCI expansion slot 1. (PCI1)

Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP8X1)

This means you have the AGP 8X technology. The AGP 8X technology is used for that AGP slot.

Use AGP 8X graphics card's.

More on the AGP technology,

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

The Integrated Graphics is supplied by Intel's 845G motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

ANY, decent graphics card that is AGP8X, will S-M-O-K-E the graphics 'power' of that Intel GMCH.

Just a couple of suggestions,

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

I need a new graphics card for my dell optiplex gx260 what can i buy


What you are looking for is an AGP 4x Low Profile video card, The GX260 is designed to be a business Small Form Factor computer so you are really limited on what you can upgrade to.
What are you looking to do with the video card?
How much do you want to spend on the upgrade?
What Country are you shopping in?
You can find the Service Manual here:

Want to upgrade Video card


By the specs your machine doesn't support AGP so you'll have to go with a PCI card with S-Video out. This link will give you a list of ATI Radeon cards available on ebay to accomplish this task.

NOTE: That list will also bring up a list of PCI-E cards, your machine requires PCI, make sure you select the correct model.

Good luck!

Low profile video card for HP Slimline Desktop


Upgrading a certain parts in the computer depends on what purpose you want it to perform. If you're a GAMER or using imaging sofwares, then use MidRange Video Cards, like 7600GT. If the space on your Casing is very tight, then using low voltage Video cards like 7300LE.

Yes it does have an AGP slot, which you can confirm easily by looking at the motherboard. The AGP slot would be found at the top of the available slots and is brownish in color and slight smaller than the several white PCI slots.

As for what card to put in, that depends on your budget and needs.
If you're a gamer, spend as much as you can and go with a N-Vidia based AGP card.

Please rate this as solved once you've read it, unless you have further questions, then post another comment.
