Having problems with your IBM ThinkCentre M50 Refurbished Intel Desktop PC - Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz, 512MB DDR, 40GB HDD, DVD- ?

I can't find the right Geforce Graphic card for my computer IBM Thinkcentre M50 8185


Answers :

Ok first you need to determine wether it is express PCI or just PCI it will be written next to the graphics card port on the mother board
The problem is like this...I have this Corvette engine I want to put into a 1915 Ford model A....

Does the mother board have a PCI or AGP slot? Its most likely it has a PCI slot(s). Find a Geforce card in the 5800, 6800 GS, GX or GTX range.

If it has an AGP slot, the you could also get the Geforce 7800GTS, the fastest AGP card out there. don't bother with anything less than the X800 (5600, 6200, 6600, 7500 7600) style cards, the chips are over clocked to make up for the slower GPU, and are prone to over heating if you try to over clock even more.

You could still find new ones, but I would recommend checking out the used computer stores first, you could find a great price. Nvidia will have all the drives you'll need.

Mone more thing, put as much RAM in to you comuter as you can get, 512 isn't going to help much, try to get 2 GB into it, it will make a huge differance.

Good luck
