    I want to upgrade my emachines video card and it is on a intel 82845 motherboard with (in think) AGP slots. I bought an upgrade from NewEgg and it didn't fit it was for PCI-Express slots I found out afterwords. My 2.3 GHx computer is 2003 model and I was told it probably uses the (old) AGP slots. Could you reccomend what I can buy that would upgrade and fit my computer? Thanks,

If you have an AGP slot, or a former AGP card, any AGP video card will go in its place.

Is that your question?

My son saved up and bought a Gateway SX2855-UB12P. We have upgraded to 8MB of RAM and now are looking to upgrade the video card which currently is a PCI Express x16 Graphics. Given his machine is a en


Hope you mean upgraded ram to 8 GB 8 mb is not much ram to run a computer.

To upgrade your computer's graphics card, unfortunately you can't just simply purchase a card and install it to your computer. Before purchasing a card, you must first confirm what is compatible with your motherboard. Graphics cards use either AGP or PCI Express technology. Many older computers use AGP. AGP cards can vary in version and bandwidth, whereas PCI Express cards can vary based on their lane . Moreover, the card itself is not your only consideration when looking to upgrade your computer's graphics. You must also consider the strength of your computer's power supply as well, since most newer cards use a lot of power. Download, install and run SiSoftware's Sandra (see link Below) to find out information on your motherboard. http://download.cnet.com/SiSoftware-Sandra/3000-2086_4-10556571.html Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model." Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website. If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website. Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model. Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications. Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express." If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x). If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16). Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply." Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A"). Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance. Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot. AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa. Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot. Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard. A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU. Hope this helps.

Video card upgrading issues


Once the Video card is inserted the motherboard, it automatically selects the video card and at the BIOS settings just select the one with an AGP selection, then boot up the computer. Install the driver that comes with the video card. It might also ask you to restart... just select Ok then its done.

Upgrade compatibilty


You can upgrade the more the merrier in my opinion however Dell can often be integrated parts that means you have to purchase goods from Dell. You may have a model that is not that way. So depending check out your RAM and see how much you have, you can always get more but there is a limit on the board. So go to Dell.com and check out the stats of your motherboard for upgrades to that board. Go to support and downloads. Or surf around do not trust just any web page for this information Dell is articular with its boards.
You can always get a Combo DVD-RW Combo which will read and write CD's as well. That is why it is a combo drive. They fit just about any computer and you can get those online cheap or your local retailer.
Video cards are integrated in the board see if you have PCI or AGP slot available it depends on your model. You can use a video card other than the one attached to the motherboard. Make sure the slots are compatible. There is usually one AGP and several PCI slots maybe one or two extra depending on the case and board. So you have your research and work cut out for you.
I hope I somewhat explained what is entailed in an upgrade for your Dell start at the dell.com website first and seek out your specific model. I have provided a link for you Click This

I have an AA A83421-107 motherboard, E210882. I want to upgrade the video card and was wondering what the details are for my mother board?


Your model 4500 has an AGP slot for video cards. The Accelerated Graphics Port (often shortened to AGP) is a high-speed point-to-point channel for attaching a video card to a computer's motherboard, primarily to assist in the acceleration of 3D computer graphics. Since 2004, AGP has been progressively phased out in favor of PCI Express.
Here is a link to the technical specs of your motherboard:

Yes it does have an AGP slot, which you can confirm easily by looking at the motherboard. The AGP slot would be found at the top of the available slots and is brownish in color and slight smaller than the several white PCI slots.

As for what card to put in, that depends on your budget and needs.
If you're a gamer, spend as much as you can and go with a N-Vidia based AGP card.

Please rate this as solved once you've read it, unless you have further questions, then post another comment.
Thanks!
