Getting a video card compatible with my mobo

April 4, 2010 at 15:00:06
Specs: Windows Vista
I have a computer me and a friend built a few years ago, and the mother board we used is a D945GCFG1 Gateway board. I have an nvidia geforce 7500 video card currently installed, and i need to know maybe a site or a way to find out what video cards i can use with this mother board, because i definitely need to upgrade it. Thanks

Since it appears you have a PCI-E 16 slot, you can use any pci-e card you want. The thing that will limit you will be your Power Supply. You can open your case and look at the label on your psu. Look at the 12 volt ratings. Don't go by wattage, it's amps on the 12 volt rail that counts.

Here is a page that will give you some of the amp requirements for video cards.

Here's a link to some of the latest pci-e cards.

Here's your does have a PCIe x 16 slot:

I didn't even know nVidia made a Geforce 7500. Apparently it was strictly OEM:

If you have a least a 300W power supply, the ATI Radeon HD 4670 would be a good choice, or an nVidia GT 240 with GDDR5 memory.
