Specs: Windows 7, 2gb ram
Well, This site has helped me before, and im hoping you guys can help me again!!

I have a Asus K8S-LA Motherboard on this computer.

I just upgraded it to the max ram recently, and i was looking to upgrade the video card.

I was wondering if anyone can point me toward compatible cards, Or tell me how the whole compatible thing works with video cards. Never really understood it.

Im a Newegg shopper tho, So if you can find any video cards that would work good with it, Please let me know which would work.

Anything above a half gig would intrest me, But i wanna get one of the better vid cards i can for this motherboard.

Yes i know, Upgrading the video card will end up making me upgrade the power supply, Which i knew i would have to do, and plan to put a 400+ power supply in.

So if anyone can help me with what video cards are compatible with this motherboard, please lemme know! Thanks alot.


Thats the computer specs.

I have 2 PCI slots open, But i dont know if they are like 1.0 or 2.0 whatever, and how to chose which video card would work with that motherboard?

According to the specs, you have two pci slots and one AGP slot open. Both of those technologies are obsolete. You can pursue it if you want, but my personal suggestion to you would be to scrap that machine and upgrade the entire computer.

✔ Best Answer
Forget the PCI slots.
From the motherboard manual:

"This motherboard has an Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) slot that
supports +1.5V AGP cards. When you buy an AGP card, make sure that you
ask for one with +1.5V specification. Note the notches on the card golden
fingers to ensure that they fit the AGP slot on your motherboard.
Install only 1.5V AGP cards on this motherboard!"

It is AGP 8X Becoming difficult to obtain new AGP cards since PCIe has been the standard for several years. Note: PCIe is not the same as or compatible with PCI.
