The DDR doesn't matter.

your motherboard has a AGP x8 port, most if not all cards for agp will work!

buy a AGP x8 card. - I have no idea what you mean with series 1 or 2, that has never come up within the 10 years I've worked with computers.


You can learn about the AGP port here

    basicly your agp x8 port supports them all. Very old cards might not fit as the connector is difrent on x1 and x2.

My video driver does not fully support direct x 8.1


http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx270/SM/EN/index.htm

I suggest buying, and installing one of the newer economical graphics (Video) cards, and do away with this problem.

Uses AGP graphics cards that are AGP 4X, or AGP 8X, and use 1.5 Volts. (DC)

Examples,

1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814139053

(DirectX 10.1)

2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161318

(DirectX 10.1)

3) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161337

I have a dell dimension 3000. I want to add a 2nd monitor. I believe the video is integrated, Does the unit have a slot to add a video card. What kind of card should be added?


The Dimension 3000 Springdale G chipset supports AGP 8X cards, integrated video, integrated audio, ICH5, 533/800 MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 333/400 memory, integrated Serial ATA, and the Intel Pentium 4 Prescott.
The AGP 8X slot refers to Advanced Graphics Port. You can add a AGP video card if you motherboard has that slot. Usually that slot is encased by a green plastic enclosure .

I have a standard hp desktop which world of warcraft can no longer run on it. ( inadequate memory per the patch update from WOW) I am going to purchase a used pavilion 523 desktp 80gb 512mb but was told...


System specifications for a Pavilion 523n desktop computer are;

1) Processor: AMD Athlon XP 2200+
1.8GigaHertz maximum operating frequency rate.
(1.8GHz)
266MegaHertz Front Side Bus
(266MHz FSB)

WoW minimum system requirements:
Processor,
Intel Pentium 4 at 1.3GHz, or AMD Athlon 1500+, at least.

Good to go.

2) Ram Memory:
512MB's of DDR Sdram ram memory.

WoW minimum system requirements:
512MB

Barely good to go IMHO.
You need 1GB, and 2GB will make it right.
The max is 2GB for the computer.

Graphics/Video Card:
WoW minimum system requirements indicate it doesn't take poddy for a graphics card to run it.
Maybe more for the Wrath of the Lich King, of course.

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/faq/technology.html

The motherboard used is made by FIC.
First International Computer { Inc }
The Model Number is AM35
FIC AM35

The graphics (Video) expansion slot on the 523n's motherboard, is an AGP expansion slot.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07899&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&lang=en&product=90387&key=null

It is an AGP 2X/4X slot.
Use a graphics card that is 4X or is 4X/8X compatible.

Examples,

4X http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2974653&CatId=879

4X/8X

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102814


The difference is the technology that has evolved for the Accelerated Graphics Port through the years.
First there was 1X, then 2X, then 4X, finally 8X.
Graphics technology has moved on to the PCI Express expansion slot now.

The different AGP expansion slots are keyed differently from each other, for one.
For two they use different voltages.

An AGP 4X slot uses 1.5 Volts, whereas an AGP 8X slot uses .08 Volts.
A graphics (Video) card that is 4X/8X, will adjust when used in a AGP 4X slot.

(P.S., that Pavilion 523n uses a 200 Watt Power Supply. At least that's what the Maximum Wattage rating was, from the power supply manufacturer who sold it to HP.

Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
120 Watts.
You really should go to 300 Watts, or 400 Watts.

(A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and NO more.
Won't hurt the computer.
Also won't kill your electric bill when you're not gaming.
Gaming? Eh!)

It's an ATX (Form factor) power supply, but the case is shallow.
The ATX form factor relating to a Power Supply denotes the size, and shape of the power supply's case.
6 inches Long, 5.5 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches tall for ATX.

The one in the Pavilion 523n is 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall, but it is only 4 inches Long.

Which AGP card is Better??


It is a toss-up , six ppl love ati , six love nvidia. I personally am a gamer, i run 2 nvidia 8600's (256m each). This is a personal preference.
My advise to you is look at the system requirements of your games you have or want to buy and see what video card they are optimised for, buy that one , but go a little beyond the specifications needed for the game as you dont want to upgrade again soon.
also take note if your PC has a 2x , 4x , or 8x agp bus. this will determine how much of an 8x card you can use in your system. for example , if you have an 4x AGP slot on your computer and install a 8x card, the card will run at 4x.
other things to consider. clock speeds are diferent on the same card from different manufactures as they customize the software and some beef up the clock settings. so you could buy the same card from two different makers and they will operate differently as for as performance.
I have had a lot of luck with nvidias' albatross 6600 GT 128Meg agp 4x card. i replaced it with a newer ATI x1200 256meg agp 8x and it only ran about two thirds as fast as the nvidia card with twice the bandwitdh.
in conclusion, i switched back as the 6600gt was actually a pci-e card with an agp interface (first generation pci-e)
i am fond of nvidia for gaming , but also know you get what you pay for in video cards.
Hope this helps in the decisiond making.
Regards.

AGP 4X


Hi,

Specs sheets for an Acer Veriton 5200 says that it has one AGP 2X/4X expansion slot, therefore the answer to your query would be a yes. Even if your add-on video card is 8X, it would still work however the card would downgrade itself to only $4X.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I could have swore I purchased an apg 4x video card, that's what my V2 premier,( L4S5MG3 mother board)requires.The nivdia Gforce6200 is 8x/4x will this work? Don't want to open, till sure.


8x and 4x means that the video card is an AGP ( not apg) typo i guess.

If it was PCI or PCI Express, it would say so on the box. Look at *********** board, the video card slot will usually have AGP prined next to it. Also, your old video card may have a sticker on it that says its a BLAH BLAH card with SUCH AND SUCH Megabytes of ram and thats its a AGP or PCI, PCI EXPRESS.

Once you know for sure that the card will work, open her up, install and enjoy.

Compaq s4020WM AGP Questions


I don't think there's a 8x AGP card made that would not work at 4x, and any 4x capable AGP slot should handle an 8x card. AGP 1.0 (x2) signals at 3.3V AGP 2.0 (x4) signals at 1.5V AGP 3.0 (x8) signals at 0.8V
