Default General Question

These questions pop up from time to time but they are all specific.

How in general, would a person go about figuring out whether a graphics card goes with his/her computer?

I personally have no idea, how do you guys figure it out?

Thanks,
Thelis

it all depends on the slot, it can either be AGP or PCI , can you take a picture of your motherboard and we'll be able to deter man what slot it is

It's on a laptop, The Sony Vaio VGN-SZ-480.

How would I go about getting a pic of my mobo? I am sorta nervous about disassembling this comp, it feels very delicate.

That's alright. It seems that on these forums a lot of people are more used to desktops than laptops.

Some notebook graphics cards are made to be taken out and upgraded, but most of them are built into the motherboard as far as I know, or at least not upgradeable.
