Last year the graphics card started over heating and this was solved by a fan being installed on the card. Now the card is playing up again causing streaks on the screen but worse than that the computer won't boot. Sometimes I take the card out to move it about.
I know the the drivers for the card are outdated but I recently had to re-install (maybe due to the graphics card) and as I want to get this new card I don't see it worth the time and trouble. Anyway the computer was the same anyway!!
I've seen that there are VGA AGP and VGA PCI-E graphics cards and am confused. I'd like to try and get a video card with its own dedicated memory (if possible). A shop near me is the cheapest in my area. trasportogratis.com/home/art2/0/209/SCHEDE-VIDEO.html Which of these could be OK?
I'd also like to add more RAM as well, could I add the same type "DDR" maybe 2 sticks of 1 GB and keep the original 512MB stick?
I thank you in advance for your help.
