New Graphics card
I can get a Radeon HD 4670 AGP graphics card for $60,,(maybe $50)
Just wondering if this would be compatable with the HP pavillion a250n,,
Atm we have a Nvidia GeForce 2 Mx400 which took the place of the original graphics card ,which was the Nvidia Geforce MX 440 x8 AGP,but that decided to stop working.
Not much of a gamer on the pc,will mainly be using it for watching movies,browsing etc
Any and all input would be greatly appreciated
Scroll down to the reference picture and make sure the card and slot matches. Nvidia listed 2 different mx440 with one labelled AGP8x and the other one not. So make sure you pull the old card out and look at the wiki reference.

If you don't game really, then I'm sure there are probably some here with a very old card that they may be willing to part with for less or just for the shipping costs
a 4670 is many Many times more powerful than a geforce 2(especially the mx400).. All depends on your needs..
And with movies and browsing being your use, basically anything will do.
Am sure you should be able to find a second-hand agp card for next to nothing that will perform nicely for your needs.
the original was the AGP8x.
So basically this Radeon HD 5670 would be too much overkill?
Personally, if you play any games or watch HD video you'll notice a massive difference.
cool,, but just realized the PSU is only 250W,im guessing it wouldnt be sufficient ?,, dont want to get into replacing the psu just to get a new GC,
No it won't be, at that point you might as well pick up an older core 2 duo setup for around $100 and get a modern graphics card & PSU.
Agh , with all that to consider i may as well pass on the Radeon 4670. i mean im not without a semi-decent pc. I have another pc hooked up to my 47"LED.. :
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6750 @2.66 GHz ,
2 gig RAM
Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX
Windows 7 Ulitimate
Just figured the Radeon wouldve been a nice upgrade for the a250n and didnt think the price wasnt too bad.
Thanks for the info guys :)
Where are you located? If you're in Vancouver area, I got a GeForce 4 that's just sitting here. I can give you to you for like $15 to cover gas.
