ok so im a gamer and recently i bought a geforce 8400 gs PCI ddr2 and it wouldnt work so i called the pny technology and they said thats why it doesnt work because they sent out defective graphic cards by mistake and i just so happen to buy one but now im looking for a good gaming graphic card from $30 too $60 dollars and the technical person said i could buy a pretty decent one around that price range so i need help choosing one because i was looking thru all of the graphic cards online but theres alot of stuff i dont get because im not a computer person but i have emachines windows vista n my model is ET1641-02w and he said i should look into this graphic card -XFX PVT86SYHLG GeForce 8400 GS Video Card - 512MB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, DVI, VGA, HDTV but when i scrolled down it says 64 bit somethin and i think my computer is 36 bit or whatever over bits there is besides 64 im the lower one i think lol but if someone could look for info bout my comp n tell me the best graphic card for a cheap price it wuld be much appreciated thank you.
it will work, i wouldn't recommend something that isn't compatible...
sorry lol its my boyfriends computer and someone told him to buy a geforce 8400 gs pci ddr2 and it didnt work then we called today and they said they sold alot n alot of them r defective so hes taking it back and going to order a better one online but will you tell me what ddr5 means? and pci e 2.0 please? for my own information that stuff gives me a headache lol
you really don't get it.
you really can't game on $65 cards...! (used off eBay maybe a better chance..)
so it doesn't really matter which one you choose out of the ones suggested.
all are in the same class performance wise....
since you have nVidia chipset, go with the GT240..
call it an early x-mas present and decide to spend like $100-$125 and then you can get a decent gaming card..
well i mean im sure that graphic card is better then the onboard one he doesnt care if its the best performance he just wants somethin better then whats in the computer already hes been playing with the onboard graphic card without complaining for awhile and it never really messed up so im sure he will like it way more then the onboard graphic card
