Get a copy of AIDA32 click here which will find information for all your components, most importantly motherboard information, agp slots and etc.

Once you got info and also tell us why you want to upgrade and how much you want to pay, then people in here will suggest one for you.

not sure of the information you require?

in order for anyone to assist with your request they need to know what kind of motherboard is inside your pc, the only way to do this as packard bell don't offer support for it anymore is to download the program tomjerry suggested to help identify it. Once you have identified the motherboard (a manual would also do this) then members can work to finding a graphics to suit your needs if it's possible to do so on your machine.

you could also use belarc advisor from click here running this programme will also identify your motherboard.

these are two important questions

  seanxx 18:34 26 Aug 04

is this what you need-
board:gigabyte i810 1.3a
bus clock: 66 megahertz
bios: american megatrends inc. 2.0g 01/20/00
processor: 500 megahertz intel pentium 3
32 kilobyte primary memory cache
256 kilobyte secondary memory cache
10.24 gigabytes usable hard drive capacity
6.04 gigabytes hard drive free space
192 megabytes installed memory
slot '0' has 64mb
slot '1' has 128mb
the problem is that i have some game that will not work correctly as they are jerky. after reading through the internet, the most likly problem is the graphics card. this is my own theroy but i know practly nothing about how a computer works.

Depending on what game it is you want to play,

you may be better off replacing your pc as it

looks a little dated. I couldn't find your

motherboard on the gigabyte site so i presume

they have stopped support for it, same as

packard bell. A google reveals little on the

board (unless you speak chines of course). What

game is it you are trying to play? there may be

a few tweaks that we can apply to help speed

things up a little if replacing your pc is not

an option. Also can you determine if your board

has an agp slot and the speed it it does I.e.

agpx4 or agpx8.

Seanxx, don't freak out though at the thought of replacing your PC,like the advice from JonnyTub.
It's possible you may just need a Motherboard upgrade kit. With one of these a new processor,RAM and a new graphics card,it may be possible to use your existing case and peripherals (ie) mouse,keyboard,monitor and speakers to make a asnew pc like JonnyTub is suggesting.
As you say in your post "i know practically nothing about a how a computer works". I was the same, but guys like JonnyTub and others in here have helped me gain a much better understanding of how it all fits together. If you run into trouble,somebody is always willing to help.
