Hi there!

For the processor speed, you can go to My Computer, on the left side you can see VIEW SYSTEM INFORMATION. When you click on it, it will tell you General Information about your machine including the processor speed.

On the hard drive speed and all other things you want to know about your machine, I said you download an PC Audit software like Belarc. It is free.

You can download it here.

Hope this helps.

Replace integrated Radeon 4200


You can't replace integrated graphics, the chip is on the motherboard.

See what you have for PCI-E slots, a forty dollar graphics card is three times better then your 4200.

Hp pavilion slimline s5000 series whats the highest graphics card i can put in it


There are 14 different versions in the s5000 series of slimline desktop computers,
{From s5200z to the s5285t}

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

Some are Intel processor based, some are AMD processor based.
The Power Supply wattage differs also. Seems it goes from 220 Watts to 300 Watts.

All versions have a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot, though.

[ It is based on the PCI-Express 1.1 version technology
A graphics card based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology will work.
Why?

Because PCI-Express 2.0 is backward compatible with PCI-Express 1.1

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-Express

"PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards. PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v2.0 will work with the other being v1.1 or v1.0."

Means;
1) Motherboards based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology, are compatible with a PCI-Express graphics card that is based on the older PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

2) PCI-Express graphics cards are also generally compatible, if they operate at the smaller bandwidth of PCI-Express 1.1

Since the slower technology of PCI-Express 1.1 is what is available on your motherboard, a graphics card based on PCI-Express 2.0 will not operate at full capability.

{Graphics cards based on the new PCI-Express 2.1 technology will work also }

Will you notice?
No ]

What is the limit for a graphics card?
The sky.

Two problems though.
A) The Power Supply
B) The available room inside the computer case for a graphics card.


1) Power Supply:
According to HP Support, and looking at the specifications for the s5200z, and s5285t, the top of the line graphics card is an Nvidia GT220.

This is due to the low power consumption. (And probably reduced cost from Nvidia)

Based on price, and performance however, the GT220 is a less than choice.

Using a Zotac version as an example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=348736&CatId=3669

Stream Processors = 48

You can have the fastest Core Clock, and Memory Clock, plus all kinds of graphics ram memory, but if you do not have enough Stream Processors, your graphics card will be less than adequate.

Consider Stream Processors as the 'Information Highway'. The path that graphics information takes from the Processor to the Graphics Card, and back.

If you do not have enough stream processors it's like a road being worked on.
Traffic is redirected into just one lane. Everything slows down.
There is a 'Bottleneck'.

Most decent graphics cards that are better than a GT220, require a Power Supply with 400 Watts, or greater.
.
The size and shape of the Power Supply's case, makes it hard to find a replacement that is greater than 300 Watts.

2) Available room for a graphics card (Height) inside the computer case:

With the Slimline case you have to purchase graphics cards that are Low-Profile.
{Low Height}

It isn't so much the length that you need to be concerned with, as it is the height of the graphics card.
The length of a graphics card goes from the back of the computer towards the front.
The height of a graphics card goes from side to side inside the computer case.

Average width inside a Slimline case seems to be around 4 inches.

You have to take into consideration; how far the motherboard is supported off of the support plate inside the computer case, and when inserted how high does the graphics card sit in the PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.
4 inches is Not enough room.

If it were I, I would remove all internal components, and install them in a cheap, decent, Mid-tower computer case. There is more room inside the case for a taller graphics card, and the case will use the common ATX style of Power Supply. A 600 Watt ATX power supply is pretty economical.

{There is also more room inside for air flow. Air is the cooling medium for a desktop computer. (Unless it's a high-end gamer computer. Dry Ice, Nitrogen, Refrigerant etc. have been used )

More air flow means cooler hardware components inside the computer.
Result? Longer life, more reliable }

Then I would use an ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics card, (And a decent 600 Watt power supply)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=465512&CatId=3669

{A decent mid-tower computer case averages around $50 }

O.k..so heres my problem...i just upgraded to a better video card on my gaming computer...and i wanted to put my old video card on my other desktop...its a compaq evo d51c...but i doesnt fit...i found out...


Hi,

PCI-Express videocards will not work in standard, older PCI slots. They are very different interfaces.

You can find older video cards that are PCI, but they are not very fast and have not been popular for ~10 years.

    What is my limit in video card choise 128bit? ddr3? what is my original power suply 300w 400w? kispis@live.com


    The sony has 128 bits to display video graphics where the hiden programs least observed during a media show on the screen is powered by memory known as ddr3. A video program being observed only requires least memory. Every picture loaded starts a new video pixels. One program is incapable of distracting 128 bits of video. Motion picture flow faster least requiring so much video bits. Opening several programs on the desktop takes away from ddr3. A certain percentage of ddr3 is required to display a motion picture video. A slow down in videos on the screen is an indication to close any displaying programs on the desktop.

    I need a video card for a compaq presario sr1603wm


    Good news!! PCI video cards are relatively inexpensive as long as you are doing tasks that aren't too processor intensive. I won't recommend any one site specifically- where you spend your $$ is up to you- but surf around a little to make sure you get a fair price for the one you do buy. Amazon.com is a good place to start as well as better known places like newegg, tigerdirect, etc.
    Just make sure the card you get is PCI- NOT an AGP or PCIx. AGP slots are the older of the 3 and PCIx (PCI Express) is for the newer generation of graphics cards, especially those needed for high end gaming graphics. Let me know if you need any further clarification before spending if you're not sure.
