O.P. Graphic Card questions
i'm thinking about buying a Nvidea GeForce 8500 GT but I have a few questions
Are they hard to install?, or can I just remove the Comp case and slide it in
And do graphic cards work with any computers?
or do some graphic cards not work with every computer

RE: Graphic Card questions
What graphics card do you have now? What motherboard do you have now? They don't work on any computer, your motherboard will need to have a PCI express slot.

RE: Graphic Card questions
CPU is your processor, not motherboard.
If you don't know what motherboard you own, I recommend you to open your case, and see the video slot.
Here you have a photo comparing AGP and PCI-e.
See which type fits in you board. Then tell us, so we can help you.

82915G chipset supports PCIe... I think you can have the card.

Id recommend either the 8800GT (for better performance but costs more, still very good valued though), or the 9600GT(its cheaper, but not as good as the 8800GT, but it is better value)

Value = Performance per doller.

^o)
Both cards you mention are about 2-3 times as expensive as the 8500GT which the topic starter was looking at.
Sure they'll have better performance, but I don't think Hotdeal has the money to buy one of the higher end cards.
Why would he be looking at the 8500GT if he could afford an 8800GT or 9600GT?

The 8800 would be limited by all the other crappy parts in his computer.

True, but the 8500GT is only for users wanting a intergrated graphics like experince with DX10.
