Advice needed please. I have a Packard Bell iconnect pc with 20gb hard drive, 512mb ram,using NTL 4meg BB connaction. The computer flies and is no problem. The thing is that i want to install and use Google earth, but i dont think my current graphics will let it be used. It has an intel (r)82810 graphics controller. I assumr this is built into the motherboard?, My question is can i use a PCI graphic s card to replace this as google earth requires 32bit and my settings say i only have Medium 16 bit and high 24 bit. I am looking at something like a 128 card will this be ok?.
Yes i think i have one of those although at present my modem card is in it, but it is not in use as i have ethernet to usb bb with ntl. it is the one i presume about the third of the length of a PCI card slot?. I have a Houston motherboard if that helps.
In that case no i havnt got one of those. It must be around 5 yrs old my pc but still in excellent order but maybe before they started fitting these agp slots.Can i not use a card that uses a PCI slot?
If it's a Modem card in it It's called a Riser slot cnr For a Modem or Sound and network, It is only a short slot a AGP slot is Brown and about the same length as your PCI white slots. But it's not inline with them. Also AGP as different Volts so you have to get the correct card. A PCI will Do if you can Get one
