Haven't updated the bios running windows 7 home 32bit but some games will not play what graphic cards will fit the 945gct-me elitegroup pc. running 2 g of ram can it be upgrade to 4 and can the cpu be changed to a quad, 6 core or an 8 core cpu
There are CPU support list inside the link. In addition, the PCIe x16 is version 1.0. Any video card which is compatible to PCIe x16 version 1.0 should be OK for this model.
Thanx forthe info. I also have a radeon hd3650 with 1 gig ddr2 on it but it is an Agp. Will 2X2gig ram work in this emachine and where is th cheapest place to get some pc2700 ddr at least one gig each. Again thanks and i will check out that link. I know that the agp gpu will not work on it. Also have and ati ragepro 32mb pci gpu. Would be willing to trade it for the pc2700 mem and would trade the ati 3650 for a 400 or 450 watt psu with sata and pata connectors as have a msi mother board with the amd 7750 black edition cpu.
For the memory, 2GB is maximum. 1GB maximum in each slot.
Dual-channel DDR2 memory architecture
º 2 x 240-pin DDR2 DIMM socket support up to 2 GB
º Support DDR2 667/533/400 DDR2 SDRAM
