Hi all,
i'm new in this forum,
I have an hp pavilion pc (With an Ipibl-Lb Benicia motherboard) and a Nvidia GPU 9300 Gt is installed.
Can this mobo support Nvidia GT 220 GPU?

I was not aware Nvidia made a 9300GT GPU chipset on desktops?

it can support gt 220, but it isnt much better than the 9300gt. go put the gt220 in if you want to waste your money. i would get gt240 bare minimum.

If going for a PCI-e x16 card upgrade then, I'd suggest the HD 5670 then as it's in the exact same price range of the GT 240, but has DX11, GDDR5, and low power consumption along with the GT 240.

The motherboard and power supply unit should be able to support the GeForce GT 220.

Other nVIDIA GPU's you may consider are the GeForce GT 240 or the GeForce GT 430 or the GeForce GT 440.

The AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5570 or the Radeon HD 5670 are PCI Express 2.1 cards. You could encounter a problem with the PCI Express 1.1 slot on your motherboard.

The PCI Express x16 slot on your ASUS IPIBL-LB / HP Benicia-GL8E motherboard is PCI Express Base Specification, Revision 1.1.

The ASUS IPIBL-LB / HP Benicia-GL8E motherboard uses the Intel G33 Express Chipset. I confirmed with Intel's G33 Express Chipset Datasheet that the PCI Express x16 slot is indeed PCI Express 1.1.

PCI Express 2.0 graphic cards will be able to work with the PCI Express x16 slot being v1.1 or v1.0.

List your full system specs, including the power supply wattage, CPU, RAM. Without those you can't really pick a good video card. Also would help to list what you are upgrading for. Full model number is usefull to make sure your case can accept a full size card.

Intel Q6600 2.40 GHz

The cabinet is the same of the m9090 hp pavilion model.

ok, if you want to play games, there is no point getting anything less than a gt240, even that is not really reccommended for modern games. try to aim for a gts450 or ati 5770. Your cpu is not bad and ram is ok.

This card may be good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and will work with no issues on your current power supply. To go for a higher card you'd want more than an HP 300 watt power supply, and your CPU will be too slow to feed the better cards. Make sure you get the DDR5 version of the card not DDR3.
