dont ever buy a 9400GT. i just swapped one out. they're terrible for gaming. What's your budget?

about your question: it will work if you have a PCI-E x16 slot on your motherboard. Do you? if you're not sure, telling us your motherboard would do the trick

well... go for the 9500GT atleast if you must. At that price i'd suggest that the 4670 is a better option. I think its cheaper (or same price) and performs a lot better

Use CPU-Z, it should tell you what motherboard you have. Also Everest should say.

Is your computer a OEM like a Dell or HP?

Like already said above 9400GT is nowhere near a gaming card,

APG slot, the best card you can get for that today would be a 4670 from Asus I belive, or a 3870 but thats if you can find them

so the newegg website graphic cards work on my comp?? install it at the brown slot?? and remove the green graphic card at the white slot??

does that graphic card in newegg sell in singapore??
 
It's not true. There are agp versions of both the HD3850 and HD4670. Those would be wasted on a Pentium 4 however and the HD3650 would be a more appropriate choice for this guy.



I believe you do not actually have a graphics card at the moment and are using the integrated graphics built into your motherboard. You can be sure by looking to check if the monitor is plugged into that "green card in the white slot." If it's not then that's not a graphics card, it's something else like a sound or network card and should be left in your computer.
I don't believe Newegg ships overseas so you'll have to find some place that sells to your area.

if i don't have a graphic card. how i play those games?? is that green card merge together with something else?



if my motherboard don't allows it. then means i wasted my money???
 
Your motherboard has basic built-in graphics that is acceptable for standard computer use but (in your case) almost entirely useless for gaming.
If your motherboard doesn't let you boot from a removable/usb device then you just can't use that drive to load an operating system. If that's specifically why you bought it then yeah you wasted your money I guess and should have bought an internal dvd drive. It should function fine for normal use however, just not loading an OS.
