AGP/PCI Express Question

Recommended Posts

Hey I am looking at a couple motherboard upgrades but want to know if my ATI X1550 AGP Card will work on a PCI Express motherboard.

My Specs are:

Ram:768MB

CPU:1.4GHz AMD Sempron

Video Card:ATI X1550

Power Supply:550 Watts

Thanks in advance!

Well I want a faster processor and went looking for a socket 775 and found this.

you will need to buy ram for that as well. and a video card if you want something better then the crap GMA 950 it comes it.

Oh and a heatsink because its a OEM processor.

The parts may be harder to get, but it's still possible to upgrade to s939 and get a dual core. That way you can keep your RAM, and if you get the right motherboard you could keep your AGP card.

But my real recommendation would be to upgrade to AM2. Motherboard for 50, CPU for 50-70, memory for 30-60 and then anywhere between 0 and 100 for the video card.

But you see I already have a system and just wanted to upgrade my CPU to a faster more reliable one. But in doing that I would need to get a new motherboard due to sempron going out of sales. This motherboard would need to come with a processer (or find a cheap one for it) and have DDR RAM and an AGP Graphics card slot.
