  1. So I have a Nvidia GeForce 5200 and I wanna upgrade it.

    What's the best compatible?

    I'm thinking the 6600 GT.

    My specification :

    Intel Celeron Pentium 4 2.13 Ghz
    1 GB RAM
    Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    ....??? What anymore? If there were more I'll gladly give them.
  2. SNGX1275

    We need to know whether you have PCI or AGP.

    PCI is probably the white slot(s), and you will likely have more than one of them. AGP is generally brown, there will only be 1, and it will be longer than PCI. (not to be confused with a tiny brown one that may be there which is something else).

    If you only have PCI, there is a sticky at the top of this forum which will help you out (go to the last page or 2). If you have AGP your options are opened up a bit.

    I'm not extremely knowledgeable about cards, but based on your processor (which btw can't be a Celeron and a Pentium at the same time) I wouldn't go above something like a nvidia 7600GT.
