Possible Graphics Update
I'm was wondering if anybody could help me find the best graphics card upgrade in my cpu. Its an HP Pavilion a620n.

Right now I have an Nvidia GeForce 6200 from another computer in it.

The HP Pavilion a620n desktop was introduced in May 2004.

It comes with VIA integrated graphics, but it has a 8x AGP slot for installing a video card - which you've apparently already done.

There's no mention of the power supply brand name and wattage, so I'm guessing it's less than 250 watts.

From my personal experience with upgrading older desktops, the NVIDIA GeForce 6200 AGP video card(128 - 256 MB) is a good one for improving on its integrated graphics for basic computing functions.

If your intent is gaming or anything else that's graphic-extensive, you're pushing the limits of that desktop's hardware by upgrading to a more powerful video card.

The end result may be a computer that doesn't start at all or a monitor that won't kick in and display.

Is it a heatsink model or cooling fan model?

How much video memory(128, 256, 512 MB) does it have?
