|If you want to possibly improve the onboard graphics performance, see Response 2 starting at:|
"...is there any way to accelerate graphics or should i use ram for graphics best performance?"
"Pentium(R)4 cpu 2.66 GHz to 2.67 GHz"
Your cpu speed is okay, for this mboard.
"1.23 GB RAM "
You have more than enough ram, but you have quoted the wrong figure.
Start - Run - type: msinfo32 (click OK or press Enter)
Total Physical Memory
If you want to try changing the amount of ram shared with the onboard video, see the bios Setup info in the manual I referred you to in Response 11.
I need you to find the power supply capacity.
Unplug the case/power supply.
Power off your monitor.
Open up the case by removing the left panel as seen when you're looking at the front of the case.
See response 4 starting at
"If you have a generic desktop system, I also need you to find what power supply capacity in watts (max output) is."
"i m from india"
In that case, SkipCox's link in Response 8 is of no use to you.
I tried searching here, with the country set to India, for PCI video cards, but I did not find much.
Almost all "hits" are for PCI-E or PCI Express cards, which you cannot use with your mboard.
I even tried setting the search to exclude "hits" for express or pci-e.
I tried searching for SPARKLE 9400GT PCI, 9400GT PCI, 2400Pro PCI, to no avail.
Sparkle's web site is poor.
You could try searching here - it does not work properly for me in Canada :
Search for video cards or PCI video cards
There were a few "hits" for used PCI video cards but they were OLD - if you installed that your video performance would probably be worse, not better.
I did find this -
Zebronics Graphics Card Price List India – Nvidia Video Cards
Two PCI cards bottom of list
However, they do not list those on their web site (Zebronics is a chain of local stores in India)
Link on that page to MSI (India) products
BUT - absolutely no PCI or AGP graphics cards listed - PCI-E only
You could try phoning one of their locations:
- if you know someone who knows more about computers and might know places in India you can buy PCI video cards, locally or on the web, ask them if they can help you find one.
- you may have to order a PCI video card from another country - you could try searching with this set to another country:
When you do find a PCI video card, look for customer support information about which countries they can ship to.
Sometimes ebay "hits" will ship to many countries.
I have a Powercolor Radeon 2400Pro PCI card that's pretty good - it supports DirectX 10 and user reviews say it plays most recent games just fine, model is HD2400Pro 256m PCI - but it does have a glitch.
It has no fan - it has a large heatsink instead - the heatsink makes the card the max allowed thickness overall, or maybe a little over that. If you have other PCI cards in your PCI slots, it's best to install this card in the PCI slot closest to the outside of the mboard, otherwise you may not be able to physically install a PCI card in the slot next to it.
If you can physically install a PCI card in the slot next to it, you will probably have to use a thin piece of cardboard between this card and the next one to prevent the card's heatsink from possibly shorting to something the back of the card next to it.
Asus made a similar Radeon 2400Pro PCI card - it also has a large heatsink but it appears to be thinner - you may be able to find that on the web.
Radeon 2400XT is a bit better, but I haven't found any that are PCI.
