Need help with graphics card slot
by Rahul Fernandes - 7/25/08 8:37 AM
I have a Lenovo 3000H 8823 3CQ Desktop with an Intel Dual Core processor[Intel (r) Pentium (r) D CPU 2.80 GHz (2 CPUs)]
Intel (r) Pentium (r) D CPU 2.80 GHz (2 CPUs)
80 GB 7200rpm SATA2 HDD
BIOS:Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
Right now,it's only running on the onboard graphics memory(Intel Extreme Graphics 2) with 96mb memory.This is pretty much useless,so i was contemplating upgrading to an AGP video card,but it seems there's something weird on my motherboard,it says AGP 8X on it,but there doesnt seem to be a slot.all i could find was PCI slots,and i really don't want to spend a fortune on a PCI card and then get it hogging all my memory,so i'd like to know what this thing on my motherboard is.It looks like there should be a slot for an AGP card,but there isn't!Can you tell me whether there is an AGP slot,or whether i can have one installed,or whether i'll have to buy a PCI card after all.Here are some pics
PS-Unfortunately,buying a new motherboard is not an option,i have to make do with this one.
