Yes you can certainly buy a better video card but there is no real reason to upgrade ram its well within parameters. unless you want to start upgradeing your processor,motherboard and so on.

I need help anyone... please help... i have IBM Motherboard NET VISTA Intel Processor 2.66Ghz. with HSF 512MB RAM DDR1... is it good for 3D or MMORPG gamings? like world of tanks, Red alert 3. and mo


Hello you need to add more memory, at least 2 gb, to run these games.

If the mainboard has built in graphic, add a better graphic card on the mainboard.

The ram modules cost about 100 dollars each, and the graphic card aswell.

A computer repair shop can help you with that.

Good luck

Can I upgrade the video card on a Gateway E4300 to work with Shader 3 graphics (Eve Online)? Or do I have to buy a new computer?


You only really need to upgrade the video card and the PSU (most video cards need more power than what most companies like dell and gateway provide.). So no need to buy a new computer.

I want to install windows 7 on my 3000 J105 8258-J6U, what should i do in order to get my system compatible? Can i install a compatible video card,what should i do?


Your system should be able to run Windows 7 as is. However, if you decide to go this route I would upgrade your ram to the 2gb max at the very least.

To tell you the truth, however, I personally would recommend just buying a new machine as opposed to upgrading. By the time you add up the money that you would spend on new ram/video card/hard drive to make the upgrade worthwhile you would be spending more than what a low end desktop would cost ya at Best Buy. Not only would the price be equivalent... but you would have way better specs, a new machine, and a warranty to go with it.

How can i allocate more memory to video card of acer aspire 5100


You can only do that with onboard video cards. If you have an onboard you can choose how much ram to assign to it in your bios settings. However it is limited and if you already have 128 assigned to it, that's probably about all it's gonna give ya. But hey it never hurts to check Assigning your physical memory to your graphics card will result a shortage of your total system memory and your whole system will slow down a bit.
Video cards meant for better processing the graphical content of your system and free up your system's physical memory.[via]
So, if you buy a new and better video card with more memory you will have a fast system with better performance.

Need To Upgrade Or Somehow Add A New Graphics Card


There is a way, yes, but it requires a few tools and no fear as you rip into the laptop case. I could explain this in detail but I'll leave you with this tutorial on the 'HOW-TO' side of things to browse at your leasure:

http://www.pcworld.com/article/148909/upgrading_your_laptops_graphics_card.html

However, upgrading the RAM will improve speed (if that's what you're really going for). Otherwise, adding a more powerful card may not increase your screen resolution but can add more kick to your gaming experience.

If you're just looking for a little more speed with higher resolution, I'd upgrade the RAM a bit and purchase an external flat screen 1080P 22" monitor that'll plug right into the back of the laptop. It will save you the frustration of possibly damaging the internals of your pc and the disappointment when you realize that the increase in performance isn't worth the risks/effort involved in switching out the cards.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

I want better grafics


For better graphics, Please do one of the following.

1) If you have a very high RAM, You can share a part of it through bios for video processing. This will help you pitch your graphics a bit more.

2) If your system is having low ram, Upgrade your RAM to higher range.

3) If you want exceptional graphics, You will need to install a graphics card with high ram. NVIDIA and ATI Raedon sells few of the best graphics cards.
