Since the Gateway SX2803 is a mini tower, you will most likely want to use a 'low-profile' video card. These cards are built short, so they can fit in smaller cases. You can find a fair selection here: http://bit.ly/eOfvmg

As for what /type/ of card, you should be able to determine what type of expansion slot(s) your computer has from the user manual, or by opening the case. I know the Gateway SX2803 25e has a free PCIe x16 slot.

Will the Radeon HD 6670 fit in the gateway sx2803 25e


I checked and indeed it has a slot for it ..It is the pci express 2.0 x16 ..
the only issue is if it will not be too high and have problems with the cover ..but i think if it has this slot ..t will fit ..cause otherwise they would not use the board ..

Got a geforce 8400 gs pci express graphics card and it does not fit in my olc pc. is there an adaptor i could get that would solve the problem as i cant take it back as its been opened?


Hi there,

1. You need to know what type of bus your mobo has. e.g. PCI, AGP

2. The adapter you are looking for is not available, there is something called RISER card. it is only for pcie to pcie used as a replacement for low profile graphics card. if there are such adapter it would be expensive.

3. You have to upgrade or swap it to some one who likes your card for an additional amount of money. it depdends on the market value of the card to be swapped.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can I upgrade the video card on a Gateway E4300 to work with Shader 3 graphics (Eve Online)? Or do I have to buy a new computer?


You only really need to upgrade the video card and the PSU (most video cards need more power than what most companies like dell and gateway provide.). So no need to buy a new computer.

I need a new graphics card with an HDMI output, preferably 1gb, for the Gateway SX2803-25e computer recently purchased.The one furnished with the computer will not support many online games. Can you...


You have a PCI Expres x 16 expansion slot so can can pretty much put any video card into it. But don't know how much space you have in the case , you might need low profile one. Or just how much money you want to spend. Here is an example of a 1GB low profile card that have HDMI out. EVGA 01G-P3-1302-LR GeForce 8400 GS Video Card - 1024MB DDR2, PCI Express, DVI, VGA, HDMI, Low Profile
You can do a search on this card.

Gateway 8510gz laptop, can I change the graphics card?


That depends on how you want to do it.

You cannot change the one in the notebook itself but there are alternative that are now available to connect to the USB ports.

If you are looking to upgrade for games then you are going to come unstuck as laptops do not make the best games machines.

Some of the newer notebooks can swap the display adapters but alas yours is not one of them.
