I am running XP PRO and want to upgrade to Win 7. The PC is old but good and I have had Win 7 running on a partition Ok but the Graphic card is not up to the job. G force 4 MX 4000. I want to upgrade the card but with the PC being old it doesn't have PCI E,is there a card I can upgrade to?

A quick Google search throws up two AGP cards both ATI Radeon, one is the HD3850 and the other the HD 4670. Both around the £75 mark so a bit pricy perhaps.

You will need an AGP card. Have a look here AGP if you use this Belarc it will list your motherboard,which you can post here and I'll have a look at the specs.

Thanks for the response, An AGP card wont fit in a PCI slot.(Unless I use a big hammer)

If your motherboard is so old that it doesn't have an AGP slot then I am surprised that it has enough RAM to support Windows 7. Did you check with Belarc as to which motherboard you have?

Well,what's your motherboard then???????

According to the user manual you have an AGP slot.Manual

Hi,thanks for that,your help is much appreciated. Not only found out the board supports AGP,but reading some of the manual helps with other stuff also.Again thanks.
