My DXDiag is at the bottom.

I recently purchased a new computer. I moved my Linksys WMP-300N wireless adapter over to it and set it up succesfully, however it appears "too big". See pictures. I was told by another computer person I need a "half front plate".

I simply unbolted the front plate from the adaptor and gently installed it and everything works fine. Does anyone know where I can get this front plate? I spent twenty minutes at 2PM EST on hold with Linsys's "award winning" sales/technical hotline only to have someone finally pick up and put the phone down after asking me to "please hold one more minute." Ten minutes of sitting there listening to foreign language in the background made me figure I was being ignored and hung up.

About the video card, I would assume by the looks of it that this Intel is built into the motherboard. If I add a video card to the available PCI-e 16x slot will I be able to run it off that and not rely on the built in? With how it's configured, I'd need a "half width" unit for the video card as well. The game I'd like to play lists requiring:

Operating System (OS)
# Microsoft Windows XP (with Service Pack 2)
# Microsoft Windows Vista
Processor (CPU)
# 3.0+ GHz Single Core CPU (Minimum)
# 2.4+ GHz Dual/Quad Core CPU (Recommended)
Memory (RAM)
# 1GB RAM (Minimum)
# 2GB RAM (Recommended)
Video Card
# Direct X 9.0c compliant, Shader 3.0 enabled video card with 256MB RAM (NVIDIA 6600 or better/ATI X1300 or better) (Minimum)
# Direct X 9.0c compliant, Shader 3.0 enabled video card with 512MB RAM (NVIDIA 7950 or better/ATI X1950 or better) (Recommended)
Sound Card
# Direct X 9.0c compliant sound card (Minimum)
# Creative EAX 4.0 compliant sound card (Audigy 2, X-Fi series) (Recommended)
Hard Drive Space
# 5GB free hard drive space
Network
# Broadband Internet Connection


I believe I meet or exceed all of these requirements. Are there any "hot ticket" video cards out on the market these days that will help me enjoy gaming on my new PC? (and the kicker, be small enough to fit in it). Here are some pictures of the slot I am working with:

As for the half plate, do you have a local computer shop that has motherboard supplies?

Those are the best places to find hardware like this. Check your phonebook for computer repair or hobby shops.

If you are out of luck and there is only retail in the box prebuilt computers, you would have to locate a website that sells computer hardware.

As for video card recommendations, everyone has their personal preferences, but what one person thinks is a good gaming card, another thinks is junk. Its like the Ford vs. Chevy truck wars so to speak.

Some like Nvidia Geforce cards and some hate them, same with ATI cards.

Me personally, I say try a card or two at a store you know you can return the card in exchange for another if its not up to your specs.

Just treat the copper traces kindly if you should decide to return the card, there's less chance they will reject it for replacement value.

Thanks for the reply. How do I know when I'm looking on a website such as NewEgg or in a store like BestBuy that it is of the half height design, as most do not specify that? Could you give me an example of a video card that is pretty readily available, meets the half height and the game's requirements or exceeds them, and is in the $100-$150 range. I am not brand preferential - my 98 Cobra race car is Chevy LQ9 powered.

Well my PNY Nvidia GeForce 6200 AGP video card came with both a high profile and low profile arrangement, I used the high profile one since my board is in a vertical 24" full sized tower.

When the system requirements are:

Video Card
# Direct X 9.0c compliant, Shader 3.0 enabled video card with 256MB RAM (NVIDIA 6600 or better/ATI X1300 or better) (Minimum)
# Direct X 9.0c compliant, Shader 3.0 enabled video card with 512MB RAM (NVIDIA 7950 or better/ATI X1950 or better) (Recommended)


That basically means I can use any NVIDIA with a numerically higher part number than those listed?

I see you have an Intel intergrated video processor with 256 mb of available display memory. Can this intergrated video processor be turned off once an low-profile card of 512 Mb is installed?

Would be great if thats possible.

By the way, those pics you posted show a very impressive machine there! :flowers:

I like how the external cables hook up to the linksys wireless N adaptor :thumbsup:

It been a while since I built a new machine, been busy working on removing viruses and doing upgrades to mine and other's machines, but I have not built myself a new one since 2 years ago.

I was looking into buying the ASUS Rampage 2 Gene mini ATX motherboard (infact I have a pdf file of the motherboard book, which I've been looking through)

I personally love blue lights in fans and shiney metals in a tower that has a plexiglass view window on it's side, connectors that glow like gold :inlove:

How do you like this board so far? I've thought about going low profile for some time now, just too many choices out there! :trumpet:

Honestly, I would not again, just for situations like this. I should know - I started my cars off with small-run-production, rare imports (3000GT VR4, Starion, etc.). Parts availability is a PAIN. I bought a Mustang, and it's a whole new world. Luckily my existing wireless adapter is of a small enough design I can just swap the front plate. Not so lucky on the video card. If I had a full frame PC, there were 34 choices on NewEgg I could have bought last night and six in stock at Best Buy that fit the system requirements and I could have been done already. The computer desk was built ten years ago for a full frame so I don't really pick up anything from the more compact design except less parts available and more headache.

I tried moving my USB 2.0 little square setup with the camera card slots over to this new one and it does fit correctly because it was built half frame into the old PC but it's physically too deep and hits the Ram. I'd have to give up 3 out of 4 memory slots just to use it. Another pain in the ass.

I would assume I can turn the on-board video card off. Most you can. That's why they build an available PCI-e slot.
