    ATI Radeon 2600XT does not fit; m50 8185 has low profile slot base. Problem area is the back plate. Only one DVI connector fits to back plate area. about 70mm height available.

Hi, i'm getting an ATI Radeon 2600XT for this system soon. But any AGP card *should* work fine (i'm hoping), just stick to midrange cards due to the low-grade power supply. I will post after the install and let you know how it goes.

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

Prime95 won't tax the video card, you'd need something like 3Dmark or Everest. It's most likely a power issue. Upgrade to a 500W minimum, the higher the better. Check NewEgg, Slickdeals.net, dealzon.com for deals. The power supply's the last place you want to cheap out - get a good one.

I have an ibm thinkpad t41 laptop i upgraded to a 1gig ram i want to know if the grapics card can be changed or upgraded . I am trying to run 7 wonders game and it freezes up


the graphics cards really cant be upgraded with out major work. The game you want to run needs 512 of dedicated video memory, not shared as a laptop uses.

Hope this helps,

Thanks,

Mark
