Greetings to all. This is my first topic and I will attempt to be brief. I own an emachines T2958. I know it is old and outdated but it serves my wife and I well for surfing and paying the bills. We don't play video games on it. I have already maxed out the RAM (2 GB) and I wish to add some video memory. Currently I have only 64 MB integrated shared video memory. The motherboard has 3 PCI slots, and I was thinking about adding a PCI video card.
1. Which slot do I use, or does it matter?
2. Do I need to upgrade my power supply?
3. Will the computer automatically recognize the card, or do I need to make some BIOS changes (disable onboard video, etc.)?
4. Please recommend a decent and moderately-priced PCI card.
If you have any questions about my computer (besides why I still have this dinosaur), I will do my best to answer.
Thank you for your help.
