Hello,
I am assuming this is a desk top since the problem is posted in that section please clarify if it is not for more help. If you want to upgrade your graphics card it is possible, you must first find out what your motherboard supports (The easiest way to determine what motherboard you have in your computer is go to the manufacturers website and enter the model number to find out specifications about what your system has. The website may give you details about what is compatible with your system also). Once you have what is compatible with your system you can purchase a newer graphics card and install it inside your tower (which is not that hard at all). If you need further assistance please let me know and I will be more than happy to help :-)

If you do not mind please rate my help after I have helped you completely, I would appreciate it very much. Thanks

Can u replace the Asus U50A graphics card and a list of the upgradable cards?


Quick answer : No. This laptop is not upgradable as far as graphics, few are in fact. You can still play older games (2006 & before) If you need better graphics, you need a computer equipped with nvidia or ati graphics. If want to play all the newest games you need a higher-end machine such as alienware or equivalent.

My heat sink for chipset popped out of K8S-LA ASUS motherboard. What can I upgrade in it,s place?


Below is a link from newgg.com with a list of possible heatsink/cooler fans that will fit your machine. If you don't run heavy duty applications (ripping DVD's serious gaming) then a basic heatsink will work fine. If you do burn a lot of DVD's or are into serious, graphics intensive gaming, you may want to upgrade to a better unit. Newegg Heatsink
Best of luck!

My pc name is el1333g-01w and i need help upgrading my graphic card can u purchase any graphic cards for desktop? it doesnt look like i have room to fit one in is there a certain place to get certain...


Google both "PCIe" and " AGP " in images to see what one best matches your old graphics card. After that you can go on newegg.com or another electronics store, even possibly a bestbuy and purchase a card with the same style of port. If you do not have a PCIe or a AGP slot on your machine then you may not be able to upgrade the graphics.

IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221NNG upgrade possiblity


This: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/get/system-requirements.aspx is a link to the system requiements. As for memory, I can't find out if it's DDR or DDR2. If you don't know either, try downloading a tool called CPU-Z. That should display DDR or DDR2, and I can then recommend something.
As for the graphics card, you could try to get an ATi 9000 series card somewhere.(maybe buy one on ebay? I doubt they still sell them new...) I have one too, in an old PC, and while it doesn't run any new games, it's fast enough for the casual user.

Graphics card for D 101 GGC intel mobo/2.66/p-4/ram 512


Good news, you can upgrade the graphics card with almost any current PCIe (PCI Express) video card. Once you install a new graphics card in your system, the ATI Radeon x200 will be disabled automatically, as per the manual.

The one caveat is that the board is not PCIe 2.0 compliant, so any video card that requires PCIe 2.0 compliance will not work. This is not an issue as almost all modern graphics cards work on PCIe 1.0. However, make sure to check the requirements o fthe card before you buy it.

As for the most suitable graphics card for you, its hard to say without knowing what tasks you wish to use this computer for and what is your budget. If you are only using it for office tasks, then the onboard graphics processor is more than enough for your use.

I should mention, that the motherboard processor support constrains you to the P4 series of CPUs. This is fine for moderate tasks, but if your gola is to play a game like Crysis, then even the most powerful, multiGPU graphics card will only make the game playable. You will probably never be able to max out your frames per second.

That said, the board supports up to a 3.4ghz CPU, which is fast enough to play almost every modern game if you upgrade to a powerful graphics card.

If you wish to do 3D graphics design, I would not recomend upgrading the video card for this purpose. Video rendering and processing stil does rely on the CPU. However, if you look into nvidia's CUDA framekwork, it is possible to offload rendering to the GPU. This is probably not worth the effort unless you are relaly short on cash.

Bottom line is, yes you can upgrade no problem. As for the best video card, I do need to know he reason you wish to upgrade the video card.

Can I upgrade my graphics card?


You could tell us you model number or look it up yourself on the e-machine website(Link provided below).  I do know that the PCIe x1 slot is only about an inch long. Maybe that is why you didn't see it?

Hello, I have a Toshiba Satellite A300. I use it for internet and studies and would like to use it for games as well. Unfortunatley it does not seem to manage the newer games well and I would like to...


There would be little problem upgrading the ram, however I can almost guarantee that the graphics is not upgradable. I would need to know more about the graphics hardware is in the computer. (i.e. integraded, graphics card, manufacturer, etc).

Upgrade Sgi 320 To Windows XP


That's true, I have a dual 1 GhZ SGI 320 and it can only go as far as Windows 2000 Professional and with an Orange Link adapter card can you get the the USB Fire Wire to work as intended. There are a few sites out there where SGI users can still exchange info. I upgraded the machine from a Dual 500 mhz processors and followed several sites walk throughs on the updates & software update. Keep in mind this machine can only run 1GB of ram which is specific to SGI and hard to find, and if you are still willing to pursue the dual processor upgrade they have to be matched and a specific voltage regulator has to be used for the higher speed processors. Will the sytem boot up and run now? If it does and you are not inclined to do all of the other upgrades it makes a good server w/ WIN2K. What did you pay for it? I noticed there are some mentions about finding them on ebay still. Problem is the sellar isn't going to tell you about the limited upgrade path that these once powerful machines have. A lot of scrapped or cannibalized 320 & 540's are out there. If you run older cad or visualization 3d programs it works great, games forget it esp. the newer ones that require the latest directX. If your machine came with a separate sound card with midi interface that works great with legacy sound editing programs but becomes inoperative with the WIN2K upgrade. When I say older and legacy, like around 1999 to 2003 programs. You have what's considered a hotrod of it's time, but it's easily overshadowed with the newer dual, quad-core, xeon machines. For reference sake when the 320 shipped to customers back in 1999 configured with dual 500 mhz processors 500mb ram, soundcard & speakers and a 21" sony CRT monitor it was just under $9K - that was and is still a lot of money. But it ran the programs fast esp. ones written with dual processor support like Photoshop and Accurender...Dell, IBM and HP all had and still have "workstation class" machines. SGI just doesn't do Windows based machines, and it looks like they are in deeper financial trouble now. 9d5e209.jpg
