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. 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.

Can an EliteGroup 945GCT-M3 run a Geforce 440 GT graphics card?

AS it GEFORCE 440 requires (pci express) PCI-E 2.0 x 16 and your motherboard has 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, so you just need to check your motherboards manual if motherboards pci express is x16 2.0 if so, you can go for a upgrade and run. as I found itcan run nvidia geforce 8 or 9 on fixya.

Will the asus p5d2v mx se motherboard support tha Ati hd 5670?

The PCIE slot on your mainboard is v1.0; this should work fine with a PCIE v2.0 card (which is backwards-compatible with v1.0), but not the v2.1 cards. Make sure you also check for power requirements of any potential card. If your PC has a stock PSU, it's quite likely that a PSU upgrade will also be needed.

I have to replace the video card on a t6412

If you have to replace the card on an emachines I would go with one of the many brand name cards available from NVidia or ATI.

Be sure you get a card with the correct interface (PCI-Express)

You will most likely need to upgrade your power supply as I think your unit only has a 300W PSU.
The new PSU may also need to include the correct type of power adapter for your card.

If the old card is part of the motherboard, please remember to disable it in the Bios.

Pana una pregunta mi compu tienen 4 ranura y yo le puse 1 giga en cada ranura es de este modelo DDR2-800MHZ-CL8 PC6400U la pregunta si la compu me presentara problema con el tiempo por hacer esto y lo...

why not post in English , you can see this forum is in English.
Santa said, you stated: (commented)
One question, my computer has 4 slots(mem) and I put 1 GB in each slot is this model DDR2-800MHZ-CL8 PC6400U. the question, if? the computer presented a problem with time?
(memory speed wrong?)
to do this and the last I would like to know what video card? I can put it and how much mega(bytes) can the computer scare? me.
dc7600 (12 years old)
NO OS stated. (XP,VISTA, W7/8/10) 1st came with w2000

you posted to
dc7600 Convertible Minitower PC Desktop , Pentium 4 at best.
800 MHz front side bus.
Dual-channel DDR2 667 memory. 4GB max !

if this is correct, (most are not, due to lack of fixya variants)
PCI Express™ x16 , slot.
the spec page says it has this slot. so most new video cards
will run in this slot but not over 75watts unless the PSU is upgraded for powerful fast GPU cards with its own power cable.

when new this card was an option over a decade ago
ATI RADEON X300 SE PCI Express 128-MB DDR single head DVI with TV out

they offered 4 vidoe card choices then.
the PSU is 364watts. (marginal for any fast new Video cards)

simple answers:
  1. only you memory seller can match up correct memory types DDR-667 or faster. like Kingston, as them !!!
  2. 4GB max mem.
  3. lacking correct PSU only 75watt Video cards work or less.
  4. with correct PSU the sky's the limit,!!! on power.
why upgrade such and old 12 year old system.
are you dreaming of running fast $60 games? it wont work.
it's too old.
tell why you need the video card first?. usage matters first.

Lenovo 3000 y410 graphic card upgrade?

Lenovo Y410 System RAM can handle up to 2GB of memory. Since the machine has 2 slots for RAM and you already have 1GB preinstalled with the computer all you need to purchase is another stick of 1GB RAM.

There is no chance of upgrading Graphics card since it doesnt have a video card slot and the preinstalled VCARD is onboard.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

HP s3713w GPU Update

You should not have a problem doing that. Your motherboard has a PCI Express X16 slot available. If you have problems when running intensive gaming then you may need to upgrade your PSU to a higher watttage. The 9800 GT is very power hungry. One problem you may have is that if your computer is a HP Slimline there might not be enough room inside the case for that card and you might need a low profile graphics card.

What type of graphics card would I need to upgrade

Open the case.
Is there an add-on video-card, or is the video "integrated" onto the motherboard?

If not, then look at the "empty" slots for add-on cards.

The WHITE coloured slots will take a PCI (not PCI-Express) video-card.

If there is a BROWN slot that does *NOT* line-up with the ends of the WHITE slots, the slot will take an AGP video-card.

If there a DARK-coloured slot that *ALMOST* lines-up with the end of the WHITE slots, the slot will take a PCI-express video-card.

Want to upgrade video card

That depends on
What kind of slots you have.
Many vendors don't sell old products.
Find out what type of slot u have ie (pci) is it white or black?
When you know, that will be key to finding who has your card.
You may want to call a vendor to avoid taking a trip to find they dont carry
the older video card slot types.
If you find one, most old cards have a great price.

Im out of video card, i got low memory, i dont know if video card are missing or graphics card.. im out of graphics everytime i played games..

You most likely need to upgrade your Video Card to a Card that has more RAM... Find out if *********** Board has AGP or PCI-Express slot, hopefully you don't just have PCI slots, but chances are if you are on a Desktop you can upgrade your Video Card.
