Hello,
Any Radeon Graphics card 3xxx or higher will work on this computer? Is for gaming

(Except for the HIS ICEQ 1GB 4670 AGPx8 Video Card (This card may break my motherboard and (or) will not have space to put it in)

I was thinking about buying Visiontek HD 3450 AGP (But i dont this card is a gaming card) or Powercolor 3450 AGP (Heard alot of review that this card heat up so but is a gaming card)
All Good graphics card like XFX/Sapphire Radeon 4650 x8 1GB are gone and powercolor 3850 AGPx8)
Also i am not buying any Nvida Graphics Card

MY Computer System Specification
ECS Group - Photon PF1 Motherboard

(Pentium 4 HT 2 CPU) (3.0GHZ ~ 2.92GHZ)

(DDR RAM) 2096MB (4x512 DDR Ram)

Current Graphics Card: FX 5600 AGP x8 128MB DDR (Self-Overclocked)

D-Link GWL510 Wireless Card PCI

SB 64 Sound Card PCI


POWER SUPPLY (ZGamer 550 Watts (LE) )

The 3450 is no better than your current card! Buy at minimum 3650!

In all reality you are throwing money out the window buying a new card for that rig! Shop around for a used card on ebay like X19xx or gforce 7600 for cheap!

Cause the HIS 4670 AGP ICEQ might be jammed in resuliting breaking a part. Look at my motherboard (orange slot AGPx8)


I wil spend money on AGP Card until get enough money to buy a Gamers Computer at 7-Elven Job.
Also my Graphics Card might overheat my Zpower Gamer Edition 550 Watt Powersupply.

Ordering from Ebay unreliable most of time. Cause when i order a product they give me the wrong product.

The 4670 is not going to brake anything that another card will not brake! A rig with HD4670 consumes max around 300watts!

theres doesn't seem to be much worth in upgrading. If you can hold out even a $400 pc will be a lot better than putting something in this computer.

Also theres not much to upgrade to for AGP and I really don't think it will be worth it. The price of AGP cards are insane compared to what you could get on newer tech.

The cheapest of them is what I recommend all are known manufacturers, then again in performance order from highest to lowest, HD4670>HD4650>HD3650! Remember it is your money!

I like to point you to saving up instead of spending $100 on a card that performs worse than $50 cards on pci express.
