NO. When youu add additional devices the demand for power increases. I don't know your exact location but you may check out the link and order it online or you may check at your local store if the product listed is available. http://www.xoxide.com/powersupplies1.html . Better buy a higher wattage in case you plan of installing other devices, a 550 or 620 watts will do .

Need to now what grafic card I can use in a dell precision 360 with window 7 32 bit


Hi.
I checked out your pc's specs, and you can safely put any agp video card in it, it just has to match the agp bus type i.e. 1x 4x 8x 16x

You also can install Most pci video cards made by ati or nvidia....like the ATI Radeon series, or the nvidia Gforce series.
I would go with one of the major suppliers for these cards, PNY, or XFX.

They both have quality cards, and are reasonably priced as well.
If you are looking for up to date features, thenan agp card, with DVI or HDMI is the way to go.

I hope this clears things up a bit.

Hi. I want to play games on my Acer Aspire SA80 Desktop, but every time I install the game, it says the video card is not supported. I don't know what to do. Please help!


As per Acer this computer model has a Integrated SiS Mirage Graphic onboard card or a seperate
AGP 8x Add-on Card (selected models). It looks like the game you are trying to install requires advanced graphics card.

Please specify the game you are trying to install and also specify if you have a AGP card installed (and what is the make and model of the same).

If you do not have a AGP card installed , we can check the game specification and try to install a AGP card and check with it.

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.

What graphic card that consist directx 10 which compatible with acer SA80?


The motherboard in this computer has an 8x AGP slot for a new video card. Most new video cards will have no problems with DirectX 10. Here is a typical card. Shop in your area or online for an 8x AGP card, check its specifications for DirectX 10 support, and you should find one with little problem.

ATI AGP card and Compaq Presario S3100NX with open AGP Slot


Hi,
This particular model of the system is basic home use system not built for games.
You can put in either a PCI graphics card or an AGP 4x graphics card that should not take more than 1.5v of power.
The max you can put is 128 MB , you can try the 256 MB, but i would suggest against it .

Thanks for using fIxya

I just purchased an Acer Aspire X1300 desktop computer. I was wondering what would be a good graphics card to buy for it?


If you are a gamer, look up the system requirements at the game review or distributor's sites of the games you want to play. Don't get the minimum recommended video card, but buy the recommended or optimum card for the game. Usually newer nVidia or ATI cards are safe bets for a couple of years. Be sure to know what type of interface (plug-in slot) your computer has for the graphics card, PCIe, AGP, or the older PCI. Epinions.com is a good spot to check reviews and prices. Gamer forums often have advice, too.

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.
