Hi and welcome to G2G!!

They will not combine to give you that much memory. I need to know the model and make of your computer or motherboard so that I can tell whether a PCI-E slot is available OR if I need to look into and AGP card.

I'm afraid that your motherboard doesn't support PCI-E 16x or AGP8x so we will need either upgrade or go with a PCI card which is no where near as good as other cards. THIS I'm afraid is the best I could find in that category.

with that price you might as well buy a new motherboard and a 8600gt/gts

a basic motherboard would cost 40-50 bucks and a 8600gt would cost 80ish bucks.

giving you WAY more performance than that x1300.

though it is better than my x300 i had before XD


just my thought.

This is true but we must take into account the other components of the PC and to me it didn't seem that he wanted to go for that much change, lol.
