None of my games work on my new Lenovo Desktop due to the integrated factory GMA3100 graphics adapter! Can anyone tell me if the Radeon will work? Thanks!

 

 

Desktop-

 

Lenovo 3000 H210   57088851

vista. (about 3 months old)

 

 

 

 

video card-

 

Radeon 9800 Pro 256 meg.

Intel® Pentium® 4, AMD® Athlon® or higher with AGP 8X (0.8v), 4X (1.5V) or Universal AGP 3.0 bus configuration (8X/4X)

your desktop should have a PCI-express 16x slot rather than an AGP slot.

How can I tell- there's nothing on the case that states what the slots are...

Looking inside- there's a long yellow slot, below that are 2 small white slots, below that is a longer white slot...

 

thanks-

I'm not sure- but it would appear that I'd have to buy a new power supply as well, since the factory one I think is only 265??? Which seems pretty low for a system with an Intel Dual Core, DVD burner, 500 gig HD & 4gigs of memory! Seems most PCI express gaming cards need atleast 300 watts-

 

???????

A gaming card would consume around 200 watts +, so a power supply upgrade would be needed.
