More about what upgrades choose from nvidgeforce4mx4000 maybe
  1. first we need to know if it definitely is AGP
    Then we need to know the power of your power supply.

    what are your specs? mobo, processor, PSU.
  2. My specs:

    CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.70GHz

    Mainboard: ECS P4VXASD2+

    Memory: 640 MB (128+512)

    Hard Drive: 37.3GB (Free:10GB

    Video: NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 4000 64MB

  3. No offense, but your PC is more or less obsolete by any current standards. CPU is far too underpowered, and GPU is no longer supported. 640MB RAM isn't enough to run most apps without noticable slowdown either.

    In short, its probably less of a headache to junk the PC and start over.
  4. Yes, I know it is probably obsolete by now, but I don't have a choice. I might look for secondhand goods because I couldn't afford to buy a new one.
  5. The problem is the PSU. You don't have enough power/current to run a modern GPU (or even CPU?), and a CPU upgrade is a must before any GPU upgrade has any effect. In short: You need a new CPU, GPU, and PSU, and possibly a new mobo if newer parts aren't supported. Plus the fact AGP GPU's are overpriced due to lack of demand.

    It'll cost around $500+ getting that rig to a point thats ok, but still old, where you can get a decent modern PC for around $650 or so. It doesn't make much economic sense unless you can dig up some major deals.
  6. ahh...I see... Thanks for explaining it to me...
