Compaq DC7700 CMT wireless card

[ Edited ]

I'm picking up  the above PC later this week and I wonder if anyone can advise me on what wireless card to get. It has to be Draft-N capable, and preferrably Intel. This is the first thing I want to install, I may upgrade the video capabilities and also the PSU in the near future.  Any help gratefully received.

 

And I would prefer a built in card with external antenna, don't really want a USB device.

 

Cheers.

Mark.

Hi:

 

Intel doesn't make an internal desktop PCI wireless card.

 

I have attached a link to New Egg's website for a listing of Internal Wireless cards you can choose from. Several have reviews which may help you decide which one is best for you.

I cannot recommend an internal wireless N card for you as I only have Wireless G. I have the Linksys Internal PCI card. It works just fine for me.

Re: Compaq DC7700 CMT wireless card

Thanks for the reply Paul, sorry for my ignorance regarding (lack of) Intel cards!  It looks like I will be going for the D-Link DWA-556, there's a couple on eBay right now. I have a D-Link Draft-N router so I should not have any connection problems. 

 

Cheers     :smileyhappy:

Re: Compaq DC7700 Graphics Card

Hi I have a HP Compaq 7700p dc Minitower, Intel Core 2 x 2.13 Ghz, 2 GB Ram and I have the following problem: I have a 7300 GT graphics card 256 MB and when I run any game with low system requirements, I have a terrible jam. Cooling is adequate and the computer is not overheating, but when I get out this card and will install an integrated card then everything is working properly and the system does not crash. I do not know if you have to install a patch or a patch or a change in the Bios because I really do not know what's going on, please, help.

Re: Compaq DC7700 Graphics Card

Hi:

 

Have you installed the latest driver for the video card? If so, it is most likely that the card is not supported in that machine;

 

Here is the list of supported video cards:

 

ATI Radeon X1300 (256MB SH) PCIe Card, DVI w/TV

ATI Radeon X1300 Pro (256MB DH) PCIe Graphics Card

ATI Radeon X1600XT (256MB DH) full-height PCIe Card, DVI w/TV-out

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 (64MB DH) PCI VGA Card

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285 (128MB DH) PCIe x16 VGA Card

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 (256MB DH) PCIe x16 Graphics Card
