    Hi guys, I've got a ASRock P4S61.
    After much looking about I'd like to upgrade my graphics and memory.
    So I downloaded AIDA32 to find out my memory and my graphics card is onboard.

    So basically I'm wondering if this motherboard will allow me to use a good graphics card on it?
    I've been thinking of buying a high end graphics card but I don't know if my motherboard would cope with it.

    Thanks guys,
    -B

    That's a fairly old board.
    It has a 8X AGP video card slot.
    It won't run as well as todays PCI Express 2.0 cards but you
    can use a 8x AGP video card.
    Still much better than onboard.

    Ah I see.
    Do you have any suggestions as to which motherboard would be good for a high end graphics card?

    There are a lot on the market.
    Would depend on your budget.
    You would also need to buy a new processor and memory if
    you go with a new motherboard.
    Might look around newegg.
    www.newegg.com
    Decent prices.
