Thinkcentre 8183 S50 - Graphics

I have just upgraded 8183/S50 to Win 7.  This machine has 865G Chipset with Extreme Graphics (under old XP).

Win 7 does not recognise this. Question ?  Is there a better driver to use (could not find anything at Intel). Is it possible to up grade to a PCI Graphics board on the PCI riser? Can the old internal graphics be turned off?

 

Thanks for any help... James

Hello james

 

Since 2007 I have a ThinkCentre S50 8183-TSG that I use for Photoshop, now version CS5. In order to enable Open GL for advanced graphic options and improve general performance I placed 2 GB of RAM and a GE 8400 GS PCI type graphics card. This works just fine. The 865G chipset is way too limited for todays graphics. Please note that I am running under Windows XP Home edition, updated to SP3 with all the latest updates for everything so I don't know whether this also works under Windows 7.

 

Succes!

Is that a PCI-E card or a normal? I have an S51 and like to upgrade the video card, but still not find any better card that fit in.

S50 only has a PCI slot, there is no PCI-e slot.
