    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.

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.

You can enter BIOS when booting to make sure the on-chip video is disabled after you connect the video cable to the add-in graphic card port. You may need to make sure the driver of that graphic card is installed first. That card should show up in Control Panel->Device Manager without error if the driver is installed.
