According to the HP specs, it does, but is states occupied (1 PCI (occupied), 1 PCI Express x1 (available), 1 PCI Express x16 (available)

You would have to open the case to see if that is true.

What is the PCI speed?

I think the question is which pci slots do you have. You have PCI. You do NOT have PCI Express.. to confirm, see picture here:
Conventional PCI

PCI Express Has MUCH smaller connectors and several speeds

PCI Express is not to be confused with PCI-X
A pix will help:

Various slots on a computer motherboard, from top to bottom:
  • PCI Express ×4
  • PCI Express ×16
  • PCI Express ×1
  • PCI Express ×16
  • Legacy PCI (32-bit, 5 V)

Hp pavillion a1632x

According to this page,

Unless you added parts, or got a different variation of the computer, the A1632X has two available PCI slots and one available PCI Express x16

I'm the GF FX 5200 only came in AGP and PCI packages, the PCI Express model was label as a 5300.

If you have the PCI version, it should work. If you have the AGP version, there is no slot for it in the A1632X

Pavilion p6600 vga replacement

What did you have in mind?

Just a graphics card, to give the same basic graphics quality the computer came with, or much better graphics?

You didn't state specifically, as to which model number p6600 you have.

(It's on the back of the computer in a white Service Tag.
State the Product Number -> P/N )

I'm just going to pick the first one out of the list, for an example.
All model numbers should use the same motherboard, but even if not; they all will have a PCI-Express x16 slot for a graphics card.

Coming up from the bottom of the motherboard, there are 3 black PCI-Express x4 slots.

Right above the top one is a longer black PCI-Express x16 slot.
This is where a PCI Express graphics card goes.

Examples of PCI Express slots,

The top example is a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Next one down is a PCI-Express x16 slot.
Next one down is a PCI-Express x 1 slot.
Next one down is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

The last on at the bottom, is a PCI slot.

As you can see, color of slot does NOT matter.
WHAT, the slot is, does.

{Plus the PCI-Express x16 slot examples shown, have a 'Pinch Lock' on the right side.

Your motherboard has a different style lock.
The lock looks as though you press down on it.
Gently pull up a little, when installing or removing a graphics card }

You can use a PCI Express graphics card, based on the
PCI Express 2.0 technology, or PCI Express 2.1 technology, or PCI Express 3.0 technology.

The only drawback you have is the Power Supply.

250 Watts

For some puny graphics cards, you might get away with having a 300 to 350 Watt power supply, but if I had to replace it; I wouldn't go less than 500 Watts.

You should have at least 10 percent more power (Power Supply), than what is needed. It's easier on the Power Supply, and better all around for the computer system.

A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and no more.
Surfing the internet? About 100 Watts.
Playing an intensive game, and you have a 500 Watt power supply?
Then the computer may use Up To 500 Watts.

[The minimum required power, stated for a graphics card; is based on the entire computer system, and not just the graphics card.

Graphics card designers base the minimum power requirement, on a test computer system they have set up.

Has the most powerful Processor available, for that test system motherboard.. At least 4GB of Ram Memory.
2 optical drives. 2 computer case fans. Gamer style motherboard ]

Something like this graphics card, if you just want to restore graphics to your computer. (Motherboard VGA is bad)

Next two examples are if you are starting to get serious about gaming / video editing / 3D programs,

Not what you had in mind?

Hi, Is Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 Silence 1GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low Profile PCI-Express Video Card capable for my Compaq HP Presario SR2020NX? -thanks a lot.

You mean will the Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 with 1GB of graphics memory, work in a Compaq Presario SR2020NX Desktop PC?


The Compaq Presario SR2020NX Desktop PC has a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.

{Motherboard illustration and photo are towards the bottom of the page}

Look at the specifications.
Scroll down to the heading - Expansion slots.

Three PCI. (PCI expansion slots)

One PCI Express x16 graphics.

Looking at the motherboard illustration, it is Wrong.
Shows - PCIEX1 (PCI E X1)
According to the specifications it is a PCIEX16 expansion slot. (PCI-E x16)

A PCI-Express x1 slot has 36 contact pins. 18 on each side.

In comparison a PCI slot {White} has 124 contact pins. 62 on each side.

Looking at the photo of the supposed PCI-E x1 slot they show, the black PCI-Ex1 slot is longer than the white PCI slots.

It is a PCI-Express x16 slot with 164 pins. 82 on each side.

The Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 uses a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.

So you know the graphics card will fit. Low-profile to boot.

Power requirement:
The Compaq Presario SR2020NX desktop computer comes with a 300 Watt power supply.
(Although in actuality it's more like 70 percent of the maximum rated wattage. 210 Watts)

Enough power for the computer, and the graphics card.
ATI graphics cards do not use as much power as a comparable Nvidia graphics card.

Concerned that the Asus graphics card uses DDR3 graphics ram memory, and the Presario SR2020NX uses DDR2 Sdram ram memory?

Don't be. The graphics cards graphics memory runs independent of the computer's ram memory.

Information on PCI-Express,

PCI-Express videocards will not work in standard, older PCI slots. They are very different interfaces.

You can find older video cards that are PCI, but they are not very fast and have not been popular for ~10 years.

Type of video card

The Compaq Presario SR1630NX desktop computer, has a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The Presario SR1630NX came out in 2005.
PCI-Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007.

The Presario SR1630NX uses the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, however.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just won't get the full capability, of a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice?

I purchased an HP A4327C desktop computer and wanted to convert it to wireless. I purchased a Level One11g Wireless PCI card and the card will not fit into the slot inside of the computer. Is it the wrong...

On your computers motherboard, you have three slots
  • PCI slot
  • 1 PCI express slot 16
  • 2 PCI express slot 1
You would require a PCI express 1 ex wireless card for the system
