I have a 2009 Asus Esentio PC. The model number is CM5570. It is a Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.6 Ghz. This is a 64bit Windows Operating system. Iti s a Windows Vista Home Premium Edition.
I would like to run PhotoSuite 6 software. But, it requires a video card that has 256mb of RAM built onto it. The video card that is currently on the motherboard is an Intel G45/G43 Express Chipset. I am guessing the video card is directly on the motherboard. (There is not a physical video card sticking out)
I have one blue PCi slot that's available for expansion. Can I upgrade the videocard and which videocard should I use? I would really appreciate any help you guys can offer. Thank you.
What is Gimp? PhotoSuite6 will not run on my PC. It crashes every single time. The #! culprit is 32mb of RAM on the video card....go to PhotoSuite6 software's website and look in support. Here is the link
OK.... thanks for the heads-up PurpleStank I appreciate it. What kind of difference are we talking about between the upgrade for a graphic's card on PhotoSuite6 and/or BF3? I do have 2 PCI slots available.
It has been 5 years since the last time I installed a PCi video card.
1. I will disconnect the power cord to the back of the case.
2. Then I will put in the new PCI video card. Once I Push in the card itself to the
Motherboard and put in the necessary screws.
3. Then I will re-connect the power cord to the back of the case. I can then press
F1, or F2, or F3 to get into BIOS to change the video card to the new PCi
It's possible to get a 6850 and a new PSU.A 6850 should allow you to play BF3 on medium settings.Although your budget allows for a more powerful card you don't really want anything faster than a 6850 because it will start to get bottlenecked by your CPU.
Do you have a PCI-E x16 slot or just PCI slots? A PCI-E x16 slot will be very long and it has a little tab at the end of it.I was checking around and your mobo should have a x16 slot but you keep saying PCI slot so I just want to be sure.
