Question about Graphics BV200 BizView 128MB (128 MB) PCI Graphic Card
I was recently given an e-machines t3642. This machince has 2.- gigs of ram, 400 gb of memory, an amd athlon 64 processor 4000+, has windows vista and a nvidia geforce 6100 nforce 405 graphics card. I am looking to upgrade the graphics card for my games but am not sure what card would be suitable for my computer without having to add too many more things to the computer. Any advice would be most appreciated! Thankyou!
You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.
You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.
