  1. That CPU will hold back any card, I would recomend a new build or sticking with what you have.
  2. Thanks for your response

    The main reason I need a new graphics card is that the monitor port (slot) is not working correctly (loose) and I need a graphics card with a new 15 pin port slot any cheap ideas?
  3. To give that computer a new lease on life. You could get an HD4670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814141114 and upgrade your single core AM2 CPU to a dual core. There is plenty of AM2 dual cores for sale on ebay for cheap I would look for 4800+ to 5400+.

    Is it easy to replace the single core AM2 CPU to a Dual Core, also what is the Ghz I need when looking.

    Thanks
  6. Here is their general Guide http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07139&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3254080
    I would look for 4800+ to 5400+ 2.4-2.8 GHz and stay away from the higher clocked ones since many of them required 125watts and some Motherboards had issues with supplying that power.
  7. I got a 3800x2+ (am2 65w) that I will be parting with to cover cost of a 8250e that I recently bought.
  8. Would this graphics / video card work or is it worse than what is in there currently ?

    It is overpriced and really old tech(year2000ish) so worse.

    F6ck walmart I never shop there except on rare occasions like once a year. Either buy it on newegg or eBay if possible a local shop that is selling one at a fair price. Always research before making a purchase.
