Well by the docs Im wrong its PCI-E slot. Odd looking one though. If 6450 wouldn't want to work with it I doubt any other better will. 6450 is low end graphic card its not meant for gaming. Its not spending much power, while high end graphic cards require much more Watts from you PSU and additional power supply line connected to it.

You will probably need to buy better power supply and a graphic card. If you can buy a complete new PC, this one is pretty much outdated.

That motherboard is not going to accept any Radeon HD 6450.

The motherboard is only PCI Express 1.0a standard for the Pcie-16x slot , you will need to go find a card from the older generation of PCI-E 2.0 video cards, like a HD 4650 or HD 4670 that is truly compatible with the PCI Express 1.0a.

The PCI-E 2.1 graphics cards are NOT always compatible. And the PCI-E 3 cards like the HD 6450 you bought also have problems.

You basically are looking for a graphics card manufactured before mid-2009. You also want to find a card that sips power, as your PSU is 300W but is older so it has reduced output due to aging.

Here is a list from Newegg, at a minmum as said above a HD 4650 or 8600GT would be the minimum.
Make sure you do not buy a card that uses too much Wattage.

I'd suggest a HD 4650, HD4670, or GeForce GT430 or GT440
make sure it is PCI-E 2.0 and not PCI-E 2.1 !!


Here is a big list:

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics Cards, 512MB, 1GB, 768MB, PCI Express 2.0 x16, 1280MB, 90

That's a HD 4350, broz, LITOralis wrote this: "I'd suggest a HD 4650, HD4670, or GeForce GT430 or GT440"

I would get an Nvidia GeForce, they're better imo and I always used GeForce's (7650 GS (bad), 9600 GT (quite ok) and now GTX 570 (awesome) ).

My older 9600 GT was juuust a little too weak to play huge maps on highest settings, so I recommend u at least a 9800 GT(X?) or even those (by LITOralis) recommended "GeForce GT430 or GT440":


GT 440

Zotac:
1GB but currently out of stock: Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-40704-10L GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
2GB, availible: Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-40707-10L GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

EVGA: Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1441-KR GeForce GT 440 1024MB (Fermi) DUAL DVI PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card



GT 430

Zotac: Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-40604-10L GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card,
here even 2 instead of 1 GB: Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-40608-10L GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

EVGA: Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1433-KR GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

If your PCI-E slot is not damaged and if your PSU has enough Watts to supply them then yes.

You should disable your onboard graphic chip in BIOS and set it to boot on PEG/PCI-E graphic card, shut it down, install new card, make sure its seated properly, connect any power lines to it if required, and then turn your PC back on.

BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING INSIDE YOU PC DISCONNECT POWER LINE FIRST AND GROUND YOURSELF.

I'd also wait before order until the DEVs here (e.g. LITOralis) makes a suggestion 4 any special graphics card... 4 one of the named above for example.


and just short offtopic (pls tolerate ): y the hell does that guys neck in that clip remind me of this: 1st, 2nd and 3rd clip

My honest opinion without sitting in fron t of the PC to look at it,

If your PC has the original power supply unit (PSU) from the factory, it is unlikely to be able to supply enough Watts to power a GPU.

The GeForce GT430 1GB Max Power Draw: 49 W
The Radeon HD4650 1GB PCie Max Power Draw: 48 W

Make a gamble:
Buy one of the above and plug it in following Massive's directions above.

If your PC can not supply enough power, you have to buy a new PSU.

If buying a new PSU, you can optionally then upgrade to the GeForce GT440 or Radeon HD4670, but it will cost more and the upgrade is going to be a a small increment improvement, it isn't going to be amazing.

For BF2:PR, the GT430 and HD4650 will be fine at med/high details.

Here's a link comparing the GT430 1GB and the HD4650 Pcie 1GB
