  1. That pc is too old for it to be worth putting a modern GPU into.
  2. Post full system specs, CPU model, RAM amount, power supply, case size, PC brand and model not just the motherboard.
    With that system I doubt you can play any newer games on past low settings even with a fast video card.

    Also need a budget.
  3. Processor Name: Intel Pentium D 925

    Technology: 65 nm

    Core Voltage : 1.184v

    Specification: Intel(R) pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz

    Clocks .. core speed 2411.47 MHz

    Bus speed 200.96 MHz

    RAM DDR2 2GB

    Dram frequency 267.9MHz

    MotherBoard Gigabyte

    model 945GZM-S2

    chipset: Intel i945G

    southbridge : intel 82801GB
  4. You won't get to play newer games on good settings, low at best, due to the CPU and RAM speeds.

    A Radeon 7750 would be a good match for your system.
  5. Thank you hang-the-9 i am happy with ur answer and the suggestion radeon 7750....what abbout Radeon R7 240? or 5450..which one is better among theses

    7750 is alot better than 240 or 5450. This is the general hierarchy chart for all graphics cards

    Your system is completely out of date for new games.
  7. THnk you hasan

    If you want to get the R7 240 for budget reasons, it may not make any difference with the CPU you have.

    The 5450 is totally outclassed by the R7 240 or the 7750. If all the gaming video card lived on one street, the 5450 would be living 3 towns away from them. If the price of the 7750 is about the same as the 240, go with the 7750.
  9. Thank you hang the 9/ i think i might get it 7750... but will it suite my slot in my computer..?
  10. on my mother board ..just beside the white color slot it says' PCI Express' hear is that Image link of my mother baord..please zoom in and find out. http://www.flickr.com/photos/85798942@N05/12475217383/sizes/o/in/photostream/
  11. Be careful. I don't think upgrading your GPU will work. Every part of your PC is outdated. Even if you get the fastest GPU in the world, your processor will still be to slow to play any games. If you really want to play modern games, I'm afraid you'll have to get a new PC.
  12. I agree with onkel, hence my first reply. All that is happening is the OP throwing money at an old pc for no good reason.

    We don't even know if the system can power the card

    It will play games, just at lower settings and maybe at just about playable frame rates. I don't expect it to play Crysis very well, or anything hugely demanding on the CPU like Skyrim, but just about any game will be OK to run on it.

    Plus the 7750 is decent enough to move to another system if in fact he can't get things to run how he likes.

    Yes the 7750 will fit in your system, and the Pentium D has pretty heavy power requirements so the system should have enough power to run the 7750.

    I'd suggest you update the BIOS before installing the card also.

    There is also sometimes incompatibility issues between older PCIe revisions and the new cards, but you won't know for sure if that's the case with your system until you try it.
