Q: Graphics Card Upgrade

Hi guys, new to these forums hope you can help.

I have an e-machines e170 with a Celeron 1.7ghz processor 384mb of DDR Ram and onboard Intel(r) 82845g/gl graphics controller. I'm looking to extend the gaming capacity of my machine by installing a 128mb graphics card

I'm told i need a PCI graphics card for this machine.

I would like to do a DIY install and wonder if anyone can help re disableing the onoard ie where will i find the jumpers or can it be done through BIOS?

Also any good web sites for newbie PC upgraders??

thnx

Preferred Solution: Graphics Card Upgrade

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The easiest way to disable the onboard video is thru the Bios. enter the bios and disable " onboard video"

Hi everyone....

Current PC specs listed above ..... to get it out of the way I am a gamer......

This upgrade is to allow me to play some of the newer games such as The Witcher and also to enable me to utilize DX10 when I eventually upgrade to Vista.

RAM.....this is what I have found...I do not overclock and I am very happy with the matched pair of Corasir XMS 512MB 5400C4 running at 533 that I currently have so I figured the safe bet is in just jumping to a matched pair of 1MB sticks of the same.....

Graphics card.....

I do have a budget and from the reviews I have read this card should carry me through the gaming world for at least the next year (hopefully 2) I like eVGA and I have nothing but good things to say about the eVGA 6800GS that I am currently using.

But if anyone has some input as to problems with the card listed below or if you know of another card that will perform just as well (or better) for around the same price I would like to hear about it.

Hi,
My system came with a R9 270 which I want to replace with a Sapphire Dual X R9 R280x.
That card needs a 6pin and an 8pin connection and the manufacturer's site say a 500W PSU is advised.
So, I'm concerned that I get a new PSU that fits my case, has the right connectors for all the 8700 components, and is say north of 600W.
Could anyone point me in the right direction.
My system info is......
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
RAM 24GB
Thanks

So I have a Sapphire Radeon R9 280x, and I just bought a MSI GeForce GTX 970. I also have a 500W CoolerMaster powersupply, would I need to upgrade this to 600-750W?

+note: I also bought two sticks of HyperX 16GB RAM and a Corsair H75 Hydro Series CPU Cooler.

A:Upgrade graphics card=upgrade powersupply?

Your 500 watt PSU meets the minimum requirement.... GeForce GTX 970 | Specifications | GeForce

So with that in mind....I'd say yes to a new PSU.

A:Can I Upgrade my Graphics Card

@SpitFire1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Sorry, but unlike desktops, which use cards, laptops have chips that are soldered directly to the motherboard or system board, or come in the form of "modules".Only a very limited subset of HP laptops actually allow the replacement of processor, audio, video or WiFi "modules" and, as far as I can tell, yours is not one of these models.This means there is really no way to upgrade the video, WiFi, or processor on your laptop. You're stuck with what came with the PC.

A:Graphics card upgrade

HI. It has a PCI Express x16 slot for graphics cards.Any card that needs that connection slot, should work for you ya sea 2.0 o 3.0,una cosa a tener en cuenta es la frecuencia a la hora de trabajar en MHz.-There may be incompatibilities between motherboards and graphics cards but by features should work, which, I recommend that where you buy that allow you to return it in case it does not work.-There is no list of compatible graphics cards since you can not try them all because of the number of cards in the market.The steps to follow and that work at the time of placing it are:1) If you already had the new graphic installed ... uninstall it again, reinstall the original.2) Restart the machine by pressing f103) Once in the bios you must deactivate "boot safe", which is inscribed in the security tab. Next you must activate "inherited mode", save changes and turn off the machine.4) Install new graphics card.5) Start the machine and with a bit of luck is everything. Regards.

What kind of computer do you have? Have you updated it since you got it (adding stuff inside)?
Also, that is the drivers, they probably did something where those became uninstalled, because nothing is "Standard VGA Graphics" every company gives their cards names.

A:Graphics Card upgrade

To do this, you must replace the mainboard - which will also mean replacing the CPU.  You'll also need a new heatsink assembly and likely, a new AC power adapter.   Together, plan on it costing about $250-300  in parts, plus the labor to do the installation if you don't do it yourself.

I'm currently using the following card:

EVGA 01G-P3-1158-TR GeForce GTS 250 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI.

Last week I changed from Win 7 home Premium 32 bit to the 64 bit. I built this computer last fall, and the the rest of my specs are I5 Quad core 760, 2.80G; 8gb Corsair DDR3 1600, 600W PS.

I use this computer mostly for Flight Sims, and it seems to me my best upgrade would be the GPU. I've always had good luck with EVGA, Nvidea cards, and would like to get one that will outperform the old 250 I'm using and will also run on the 600W PS. I guess I could replace the PS if I really had to, but not looking forward to the work involved, lol.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any suggestions that will improve my system. Thanks.

I have a HP d4000e with a new blue ray player installed but the nVidia 6200se video card will not support the blue ray player, can anyone recommend an agp video card to replace it and where do I get it.
 

A:Graphics card upgrade

In order to play Blu-ray content you'll need (besides the Blu-ray player ofc):

A HDCP-capable software media player (you should have received one with the player);
A HDCP-capable video card (all modern video cards from 2007 and onwards);
And a HDCP-capable display (if it has a HDMI input, then it should also have HDCP).
What's HDCP?
High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, a form of copy protection that basically lets you play only on devices that have this feature.
Check this link if you want to learn more about it.

Back to your question, if you can find one in your area, HIS makes an AGP version of the ATi Radeon HD 4350 which is excellent for Blu-ray playback and is also pretty cheap.
The full name for it should be HIS Radeon HD4350 iFan 512MB DDR3 64-bit AGP.
Sapphire also makes an AGP HD 4650: Sapphire Radeon HD4650 1GB DDR2 128-bit AGP. This is a bit more expensive than the other, but is also more suitable for gaming (if you care).
If you tell me in which country you live, I could also give you some suggestions where to buy one.

PS: Both cards are HDCP-compliant.

A:H30-50 - Graphics card upgrade for my H30-50

Hello SYsalomon,Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.As long as its the right size and is compatible with the BIOS it should not be an issue, just make sure that there is enough power to run things.
 
You can use something like http://powersupplycalculator.net/ to try and calculate an estimate of power you would need.

HiI have an Acer Veriton M421G.I have recently upgraded my video editor to Cyberlink Power Director 15.From the warnings I keep getting eg: Not enough memory. upgrade graphics card, I guess my system cannot cope.The system is the original other than upgraded to win 10.The processor is a AMD Athlon(tm) 11 x4 620 processor 2600Mhz 4 core 4 logical processor. Is it possible to upgrade to a AMD Phenom 11 or higherand VGA 128 VRam or higher. As you can probably tell I have no idea what happens under the lid! If it is possible to upgrade would it be worth it or should I think about a complete new system. Thanks any advice much appreciated.

Hello!
I recently tried to update my graphics card and was met with disastrous results. Can you tell me if my machine "should" have let me upgrade to the following card with no issues?
My MachineDell XPS 8700 X8700-3312BLK Desktop (Windows 7 Professional,Memory     16GB (Upgraded to 32)  Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz - 4 DIMMsVideo Graphics     NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745 4GB DDR3
Upgraded Card to:  MSI GAMING RX 480 GDD R5 8GB
What HappenedEvery time I tried to load my game (World of Warcraft) my machine would reboot. When I tried to load the MSI software it made the screen have boxes all over it then it did a reboot. Finally I got the blue screen.  Put my old card back on.  I also had to use the special connector for it which I did. It wouldn't start at all without that.
Thanks!
Nancy

A:Graphics card upgrade help

I haven't seen anyone with an RX 480 in an 8700.
I would try DDU www DOT guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
to remove all traces of previous graphics card drivers.
I don't know if BIOS matters on the AMD cards.  recent nVidia cards need BIOS A10 for Win7/8 and A11 for Win10

I like to upgrade to a  GeForce GT 730 2GB GDDR5 64bit. I have a acceptable 350w ps. I question if the legacy bios ( non uefi ) can support this card - or something comparable ( under $125 ) I am simply replacing a geoforce gt 230 that is overheating constantly and shutting my system down. I

Hi, UEFI enabled graphics cards vary by manufacturer.  Check with the specific manufacturer.  You might want to consider the EVGA NVIDIA GT 640. The GT 640 only requires a 350 watt power supply and is a single slot card. It's $70.  Check with EVGA for compatibility before you buy.
