Can I Upgrade My AGP X8 Machine?

I am about to acquire a Emachines Pentium 4 2.6g Computer. Verify before you buy. I have an ATI PCIe card with 512mb ram. What a second hard drive can do is protect your data in case your primary Windows hard drive crashes, and/or you have to format and do a clean install. http://everfreetech.com/can-i/can-i-upgrade-to-radeon-9600.html

Perhaps a Quadro next time. It is why PCIx cards don't really perform better than AGP 8x cards, despite having a bus that is twice as fast. I was looking into these HD3450, HD3650 and HD4650 with 512MB or 1GBMy current RAM runs on 200 MHz and i was thinking of buying 1GB with 400 MHzSo basically 1) In the story,it says "Debian(underlined)" and the link is dead. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/292245-31-upgrading-machine

The motherboard is a Giga-byte Motehrboard, which really is maxed, i cant upgrade more than to a 2.2g AMD chip. Figure 1. Thank you for helping us maintain CNET's great community.

  • As far as running faster learning how and maintaining a clean concise operating system will take you farther and faster than a 10,000 RPM drive.
  • The more the merrier.
  • If you can help; how about getting a card to work on Mandrake?
  • However, switching between X displays hosed things regularly.

It doesn't affect you whatsoever. Xrandr support is there too, but it's sort of dodgy at the moment. My Dell has a 250 watt PSU in it, so that severely limits my ability to change the video cards. I believe it uses AGP but I will double check when I open my machine.

I have asked various forums for help, but I am still unable to get the video card working. I think that covers the questions that were being asked if you want any other specifics let me know.:smileyhappy: ARCHIVED-CkQuester, Oct 17, 2006 #8 (You must log in or sign up Apple disclaims any and all liability for the acts, omissions and conduct of any third parties in connection with or related to your use of the site. http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forum/apple-help-34/right-graphics-card-upgrade-e-machine-270-363027/ Otherwise, you should be pretty safe.

The article completely fails to mention one very important point: The NVIDIA 3D drivers are non-free. I guess if you want to keep playing with free drivers, nVidia may be your only semi-reliable choice. I upgrade this system when the Motherboard went dead.

I tried the gatos drivers, but they must not have worked because franky I can't remember anything past 'emerge -v ati-gatos'. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3896413?tstart=0 A Switch for Your RPi Papa's Got a Brand New NAS Buddy Platform Limited's Parse on Buddy Service Panther MPC, Inc.'s Panther Alpha My Childhood in a Cigar Box Let's Go Submitted by Keith Daniels on Tue, 05/09/2006 - 17:25. I plan on buying 1-2 banks of 1g Ram, but im left with a question.

Ill strip it, stick on all my addon's. have a peek at these guys Let us know what type of slot you have, then people can suggest a good card for you. Now my graphics Card [Radoen x700] is 4x\8x capable, so i know its compatable. Open up a terminal window and become root.

You must determine how much performance are you willing to pay for. Doom 3 went from being completely unplayable to playable, though at 640 x 480 screen resolution.

Even a 4x AGP will have trouble with a 2x slot. This means you can't use older AGP cards, which of course won't matter when you're upgrading, but it is a gotcha when you want to recycle a 1x or 2x AGP Several functions may not work.

Rabbuk[size=7]GO BEARS!

just want to make sure.so far I have not got a straight answer on this (from others) Apple store will not suport it, and would not even advise me where or Now reconnect your PC to power cord, keyboard and mouse plus video. If you upgrade the video card, you will need a PSU upgrade($). What operating system are you running?

I suspect all this would go away with a proper kernel module?
