Upgrade video card`

I am trying to get an upgraded video card that is compatibile with my motherboard (I use the computer for video editing). I recently hooked the computer up to my HD TV 720i using the PC input. The problem is I'm limited to 1024 X 768 and it doesn't give me enough screen space to edit video. I am going from VGA to VGA. Is there a video card that is compatible with my motherboard and will give me HDMI out or at least DVI out? Please keep in mind that I am also using the Matrox RTX100 video editing card. It there any hope for being able to use my TV with higher resolution than VGA?

You have an AGP 8x expansion slot.

Im using an ATI Radeon 9550/X1050 Series. I don't know if they carry them anymore but it has 256 megs and a DVI out. Runs AGP. It supports 720i through at ATI control panel settings.

Intel g41 express chipest not compatible

Sounds like your computer has an integrated video card and the game is looking for an extended graphics card. This type of card plugs into the motherboard via the AGP, PCI, or PCIE slots. Depending on the type of video card and computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply when you put the card in. If this is a laptop there is no good way to upgrade the video card.

Hope this was helpful

Is it possible to upgrade my e-machines 4260 with a grapics card??

at the bare minimum, you can upgrade it with a PCI graphics card. That would plug into one of your spare white PCI slots, and they make those with atleast 256mb of memory ( When shopping for one, dont confuse a PCI video card with a PCI express card) I couldn't find enough info on what exact board you have, as they used several, but many had a brown AGP memory slot, which is a better option for you. Keep in mind, also, that if you upgrade the video card and memory , you might need to upgrade your power supply too, due to the higher current requirements of the new card and memory.

If all else fails, bring your tower to a computer shop, and they will usually tell you what you need for free, with hopes to sell a upgrade!

After Bios install primary card not recognised. When booting up monitor turns off. Monitor works with secondary video card

Try reseating the video card.
Also try the card that does not work in the slot of the one that does to test that it is working.

I hav a nvidia 8400gs graphics card how can i increase its size 1. by sharing it with hard disk sharing it with ram 3.what are the effects of this procedure?

upgrading your video card. There are probably only two basic reasons to upgrade a video card: 1. Your current card has poor performance.or You just "want" faster video performance.
If you think your current video card is performing poorly, there are a couple of things you should do prior to upgrading your video card. The first thing your should do is give your computer a "tune-up". This involves things like running Defrag, Scandisk, virus checkers etc. (for further explanation of tune-up procedures, .
Once you are certain that your computer is performing properly, and your computer is still experiencing slowdowns in video intensive programs, like games or graphic design programs, then the second thing you may need to do is upgrade your computer's main system memory. Inadequate amounts of system RAM will choke your computer's performance. That's why I recommend all newer computers have at least 512 MB of system RAM.

Vista Black edition is a pirate copy of Vista, it is probably infected by some malware that will slow the entire system down in time, not just the video display

Video card upgrade still carries 4X/8X Radeon 9250 cards in the $30 U.S. range. These will perform better than your GeForce 2 but your machine is still going to choke on the new computer games.
The PCI Express based video cards on the new systems outperform the older AGP cards by something like a factor of 10.
