I thought i was doomed with integrated video on a 1/2 way decent system for 5 years old. Besides the bad graphics it has 1.25 gig memory. 2.6 pe running at 2.9.


Here is the picture of my system board

AGP Support Direct AGP
Video Memory Support Discrete wavelet multitone (DVMT)
Video Chipset AGP Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2

If that is the same board as the one you have you do NOT have an AGP slot.

You can see the holes are there for it above your PCI slots but the AGP slot itself is missing.

Gateway and many other vendors do this to save $.

I would strongly urge you to upgrade to a decent motherboard that has AGP 8x or PCI-E

Nope.No AGP there my friend.Try upgrading to a different mother board and make sure it has agp.If you are unable to get a board with agp,then get one with pci-e.And to tell if you do have an agp slot,your agp slot will be a darker brown color and sits closest to the cpu.it is also offset from the other pci slots.goodluck.

Thanks guys,

Ya i was just wondering cuz i do moderate gaming and i can't stand getting only 20 fps on lowest settings. And a low quality agp would help till i wait for dx10 and vista to get my new system *and time to save, lol*

Aye :-D


The board below has a REAL AGP 8x and a REAL PCI-E 16X so you can use either an AGP card or a PCI-E or BOTH at the same time if you wanted to



From LEFT to RIGHT

The yellow slot is a special AM2 upgrade slot for a daughtercard.

The long white slot is a 16X PCI-E slot

The short white slot is a 1X PCI-E slot

The brown slot is an 8X AGP slot

The 3 white slots are standard 32bit PCI slots


This board is relatively inexpensive @ 66.99 new or about $43 delivered open box ( just the bare board no other parts ).


So if you already have DDR2100/2700/3200 you can get this board + an inexpensive AMD64 939 for as low as $64 assuming your other parts are up to it.

For 66.99+6.13+64 you could upgrade to a very nice new box with a lot of upgrade potential ( assuming you have 184pin DDR and your PSU can handle it ).

For about $30 you could purchase the special daughtercard with allows you to upgrade to a new Socket AM2 ( 940pins ) AMD64 with DDR2 instead of DDR.
