Hi there. Currently I have a Intel Pentium 4 (CPU 2.53 GHZ), Compaq07E8H Motherboard, 1 Gig DDR1 Ram, A MAXTOR 6L080L4 (7200RPM) harddrive and a GeForce4 MX 420 Video Card.
I think its time I upgraded my video card, but I have no idea what I should upgrade it to. I was hoping it was possible for a 1 gig onboard memory card, but I'm not sure if my mother board would support it, in which case I was wondering if anyone could reccommend what video card I upgrade to.
I'm not sure of my power supply, if you need to know, could you please tell me how I would find this out and I will be sure to get back to you.
pretty much but not all googled your system and it appears to be AGP x4 most AGP x8 cards are backward compatible (but not all) neither will they run to their full potential so worth checking before purchase
also worth checking
power supply rating for the card
(power supply you should find a sticker on it with the ratings)
lenght of card will it fit your case
and what is the card being used for
i.e you wont need something like a 7600GT if you are just web surfing and typing
For the most part, I want a decent level of gaming, I want to be able to play the basic games like Fallout 3, Oblivion, Driver 3 and even DOOM 3, and at the moment, only the graphics card lets me down...I'm not very tech savvy. Sapphire RADEON X800 GT, (256 MB) AGP Video Card looked like a good choice, but I'm not sure this will work in my machine.
