    Default Graphics card for ASRock Motherboard K7S8X


    I have an older PC with an ASRock K7S8X Motherboard,but now the ATI Radeon Graphics card in the AGP slot (1.5 V, 8X / 4 X ) is defect and I want to replace it but I don't know the the old graphics card specification. Do I need to buy an AGP graphics card or can I also use one of the free PCI slots for the new graphics card. The computer is used for simple office work (mail, spreadsheets, documents and browsing on the internet) and has a VGA connection to the display screen. (so a simple cheap graphic card will do)
    Any recommendation ?

    Thanks in advance, Regards, Frans

    Probably best to stick with an AGP graphics card. Your motherboard does not support the newer PCI Express cards. You can still find cards for the even older (slower) PCI slots they are a bit rarer these days and often slower than AGP.
