Also, lol. I have another question.

I have a Sony Vaio PCV RS222, 512ram, geforce fx5200 128meg graphics card.

Is there any way of finding out if I use pc2100 ram or 2700 ( without opening the box and looking for a sticker ) - knowing my luck I would fry the thing messing with it.

When I checked on a site in the past it stated pc2100, but recently having gone to crucial.com and ran through the idiots guide for RAM type detection, it states pc2700.

ALSO, lol...If I got the geforce 6200 agp 8X will it run if mine is 4X - I dont know which mine is either.

Also when I right click on my dsktop, go to properties and go into the graphics card settings, it says that its location is "PCI Slot 6 (PCI bus 2, device 0, function 0)" - I think I have an agp card ( quite sure ) - so this is rather odd and doesnt make any sense.

Hope you can help.

Thanks

Hi

Thanks for the info and link, it was really helpful.

I now know that I have an AGP slot - yay - but it is only a 4X 1.5v.

Do you know if a Geforce 6200 256meg, designed to run on a 8X system will work on my 4X?

Thanks
Jim

Is the new card AGP or PCIE ?? Everything I can find on the card indicates a PCIE so, NO.. that won't work on your system unless you have a a PCI Extended slot..

It should work but will slow down to what your system can handle.. You may be better off getting an MX style card for your system..
