That motherboard and videa card connect using the AGP standard so you are quite limited to what video cards you can get without upgrading the entire system. Also, since your system is that old getting a modern graphics card will not help much as the processor (CPU) will limit it greatly.

nVidia has not released an AGP card in a few generations but they did have some back with the 7600 AGP. ATI released an AGP version of it's last generation of cards with the HD3850.

I personally think you are wasting your money and should consider upgrading your entire system if you are planning an playing any games. I would suggest getting the cheapest AGP video card you can find say a GeForce 6200 or Radeon X1550. Don't spend more than $50 or $60.

Remember that it must be AGP to fit on your motherboard. Another thing to consider is that any AGP video card you buy for you current system will not work in any new computer.

Upgrading graphics quality on my pc.


There is a large range of graphics card on the market in both performance and prices to match.
The graphic card that suits your requirements depands upon what you want in terms of performance and the application that requires a particular level of graphic capability.
Check the software documentation or games program for the graphic card that is required to run with their program. Generally games programs that require photo realistic rendering require high end graphics cards.
You may select a graphic card that is a bit above your current requirements to cover for future requirements.
I suggest you Google search the Internet or go to your computer shop to see what is available that meets your requirements. You can spend a lot of money on a very high end graphics card when a lessor graphics card would still suit your requirements and not burn a hole in your pocket.

What AGP is compatible with my ECS KT400 motherboard and AMD Athlon 1900+ processor? I currently have NVIDIA Geforce2 MX 400 64MB and I want to upgrade it to 128MB or 256MB.


Hi,

Any AGP card is supposed to work. Doesn't matter what spec. Don't expect huge performance increases by just upgrading gfx card. Games might run better visually.

Cheers.
Please rate.

Desktop upgrade


Asus is a Solid MotherBoard manufacturer of mother boards. If you are looking for an add-on graphics card (I'm assuming you want to do some gaming), You would want to upgrade the memory for that motherboard to at least 1GIG which can be found here.

Graphics cards wise, I wouldn't advise anything higher then a $100 card... As that motherboard only supports 4x AGP (The type of connection your video card would use) and to get more for what you pay for, you really need a motherboard with an 8x AGP slot to get 100% of what you pay for. A Radeon 9950 at around $92 is the most you would want to put into a system that currently has a p4 2.66 ghz.

Which latest Graphic card can be supported by my Asrock P4i45GV?


Hi

Any video card that supports AGP x8 Should work on this motherboard.

For example Nvidia 7800 GS AGP or 7600 GS AGP should work fine.

But a better investment would be to upgrade the motherboard to a PCI-E supporting board and possibly AMD Dual or Triple / quad core processor the ram is very cheap for DDR2 these days.

Upgrade would be best in long run.
