Need abetter graphic card for acer aspire 5251


in Acer Aspire Series is using Intergrated Graphic Card.
that mean if you wanna Upgrade your Graphic Resolution,
you have to set to a bigger shared memory/RAM for Display Graphic Card/VGA memory from BIOS Setup.
for example if you using RAM 2Gb, and you can make your VGA(Video Graphic Adapter) to 1Gb.
But in My Computer Properties the RAM will Show only 1Gb.
Because another 1Gb of RAM you've use for VGA.
you can check it from dxdiag.
(for opening dxdiag > Click Start > click RUN... > type dxdiag > and Oke/Enter)

Tip

How to choose an adequate graphic card


A graphics card is mainly composed of a processor, GPU (Graphic Processing Unit), and memory.

The graphics card is in itself a small PC dedicated to graphics applications, independent of the rest of the PC, the only link being the information passing through the port graphic and food.

Choosing a card is based on its needs and its budget:
  • For desktop applications, a map called "entry level" enough;
  • For multimedia applications, a map can read the desired video format is imperative;
  • For 3D video games (and generally all 3D applications), one more powerful is essential.

Structure of a graphics card

The essential component that will determine the performance of the graphics card is the GPU:
A modern GPU is based on different units calculation:
  • Processors Flow
  • Texturing units,
  • Raster units (ROPS).

The most important are the processors flows over the number of processors flow is important, the GPU will be more powerful (for architecture).
The model number on the card is linked to the GPU.

To enable the GPU to store its calculations, there are memory:
  • It varies in quantity:
    • 256 MB enough for the tickets range of previous generations;
    • 512 MB is sufficient for most current cards graphics;
    • 1GB is needed for cards with a very powerful GPU, the GTX 280;
    • Broadly speaking, the more you play in high resolution and filtering enabled, you need more memory.
  • It varies in type:
    • DDR2, DDR3, DDR4 or DDR5: The higher the figure, the greater the memory is fast. His type does not relate to that used for RAM PC: you can have a PC in DDR2 and DDR3 graphics card.
  • Its frequency:
    • Plus it is high, the card is more powerful.

Finally, to link GPU and memory is the memory bus.
The width of this bus is important: it may be 64, 128, 256, 384 and 512 bits: over the bus is large, most trade between the GPU and memory will be rapid. A map to 256-bit bus is efficient at a map of 128-bit bus for the same GP

I have purchased a asus p5g41c-mlx motherboard on jauary 2011 .but after 2 month its grahpics not work properly ,it is flickering ,i have using window xp. i have uninstal the grahpics and reinstal it but...


Hello there,
Here is *********** boards VGA details.
Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics Maximum shared memory of 1GB
Supports RGB with max. resolution 2048 x 1536 (@75Hz)
Supports Microsoft® DirectX® 10
Here are the system requirements of the games you are currently playing with problem.
NFS Most Wanted- It should run with no problems just avoid high detail settings.
Minimum: 32MB or more, ATI 7500 or greater; ATI Radeon Xpress 200; NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/GTS or greater Recomended: NVidia 5900 or ATi 9800 with 256mb of video memory
Prince of Persia Two Thrones
Minimum: 64MB Recomended: better than recommended in NFS Most Wanted
COD Black Ops
Minimum: Shader 3.0, 256MB GeForce 8600GT/ ATI X1950 Pro or better. Recommended Nvidia: GT 240 or higher Recommends Ati: HD 4670 512MB or higher Minimum Memory: 2GB
Some games have hardware validation test if your unit fails to the requirements you cannot install the game. try to download this BurnIn. Select the 32bit Standard edition. install the utility and stress your x4500 graphics. Sir you did not post your Processor and Memory. The x4500 graphics will use 128MB of your ram, If you are using 1GB or 1024MB - 128MB = 896MB. 2GB or 2048MB - 128MB = 1920MB. For Memory system requirements your system failed and the main problem is your video card.
Hopefully this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My card XFX Nvidia 8600GT DDR3 256MB was working fine, recently it started to get heated up very quickly & burning like anything, now it wont even let my pc boot, i removed it & my pc boots up fine...


There is no need to go for another card just keep you pc well ventilated. and try to install some cooling fans in it. but if you want real cooling solutions then just purchase a coolermaster gpu coolers from the shops and i tell in the whole world that, they are the best company in producing CPU and GPU Coolers.

Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.

My1 gb ram didn't make any change even in games in my pc even those games which used to run at a particular speed earlier before the added ram are running just like thet speed even after adding 1gb more...


Ok, let's explain this. RAM does not necessarily make your pc faster.
Your pc can be faster if you upgrade your CPU or graphic card(only graphic application will make you notice the increased speed in graphics).
RAM can be a bottleneck for application that need a lot of memory like photoshop when working on multiple very high resolution images or 3D cad when working on large assemblies, or VMWare.
Vista manages the RAM in such a way that you might notice a slight performance increase and less disk usage during standard desktop activities, but XP doesn't.
if you don't use very many applcations at a time and/or you don't use memory consuming applications, the added RAM is not used at all and your computer won't be any faster than it used to be.
Video memory is basically the same. you will notice a difference in performance from a large video memory(512MB-1GB-2GB) only if you game at high resolution like 1080p or higher, usually supported only by large monitors like 20" or larger.

What are the Direct X recommendations for the game? Is your direct X up to date.?

You can check if your graphics card is compatible with 3D graphics by going to Start>run (just on the right below search), and type in dxdiag,

This will bring up your direct X diagnosis program and enable you to run some checks.
Check to see if 3D graphics Accelleration is enabled and then run the video and sound checks to make sure that you are having no problems.

Memory Issue


yeah you should upgrade. Windows xp 32bit only support up to 3gb memory. You should upgrade to 64bit.
And your specs? Yeah it can run 64 bit operating systems or if you like, use Windows Vista x86 or x64 with Service Pack 1.

CANNOT SET UP SLI MODE


So it sounds like you are able to enable SLI mode, but once you do, you have no video output (upon reboot). The most likely problem is that it's now in SLI mode, but your monitor cable is hooked up to the wrong video card; try changing it to the other video card, and see if you have output from that one.
