    you should google the model number of the pc, you should get more info for it, yes you can use a 8x agp card, but it will only run at 4x. It looks like your ram is just ddr, but like i said, google the model number.

    Hmm you will need to try to work out what motherboard it is, or possible more detail on the model of the computer.

    One of these tools from here might help: https://www.techspot.com/downloadid11by4.html Possibly "Everest" would be the best


    I see supersmashbrada just got in before me
