    Well, i'm still in need of options for a graphics card that will be compatible with this Emachine T5022. Geek Squad had me buy a

    BFG-NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR2 PCI Graphics Card-BFGR84512GSP

    and wasn't compatible, slid right in PCI slot and specs from card said that 300 watt power supply would work? Any suggestions?

    maybe this will help / specs on motherboard

    The T5022 mother board has 3 expansion slots that is one PCI express and two PCI

    PCI Express

    The motherboard provides one PCI Express ×1 connector supporting simultaneous transfer speeds up to 8 GBytes/sec. The PCI Express interface supports the PCI Conventional bus configuration mechanism so that the underlying PCI Express architecture is compatible with PCI Conventional compliant operating systems. Additional features of the PCI Express interface include:

    Support for the PCI Express enhanced configuration mechanism
    Automatic discovery, link training, and initialization
    Support for Active State Power Management (ASPM)
    SMBus 2.0 support
    Wake# signal supporting wake events from ACPI S1, S3, S4, or S5
    Software compatible with the PCI Power Management Event (PME) mechanism defined in the PCI Power Management Specification Rev. 1.1


    This motherboard has two PCI Conventional (rev 2.2 compliant) bus add-in card connectors. The SMBus is routed to PCI Conventional bus connector 2 only (ATX expansion slot 6). PCI Conventional bus add-in cards with SMBus support can access sensor data and other information residing on the motherboard. Both of the PCI Conventional bus connectors are bus master capable.
    SMBus signals are routed to PCI Conventional bus connector 2. This enables PCI Conventional bus add-in boards with SMBus support to access sensor data on the boards. The specific SMBus signals are as follows:

    The SMBus clock line is connected to pin A40.
    The SMBus data line is connected to pin A41.

    Could you please tell me what
    graphics card you are getting and also, could you find out the model number of
    the PSU (power supply unit) you are using? (The psu is usually a big square box
    inside the computer normaly located at the top-back end of the computer with loads of wires coming out of it)

    Different graphics cards demand different amount of power and also they need
    different connections as well sometimes

You should be fine with the PSU that you have currently got but i would recommend upgrading it to something above 400W.

there is a graphics card i would recommend which is a Sapphire ATi Radeon HD 2600 PRO. you can look it up here.

it will support dual monitor at 1080p which uses two DVI.

Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).

You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)

You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:
The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

Need to connect 3 monitors. Want to use either a Nvidia 290 or ATI Radeon 9250 plus the VGA port. Installing the dual-video card disables the VGA port, cannot get it back. Help!!!

Use your AGP dual-video card for two and using a PCI VGA card for the third. It is best if the same manufacturer video driver is used for both cards, as two different ones could be problematic.

My Sister has a dell monitor and a emachines tower, She cant get the monitor to turn on. is it compatible? Or is there something else she should try cause she has it hooked up right.

They are compatible, make sure your connectors are right... If the emachine is using a graphics card, make sure it is hooked up to the greaphics card not the motherboard but if you do have it hooked up to the graphics card, then try the motherboard's video output.

Will a dell dimension 2100 support dual monitors

Yes it will but that will also depend on your graphics card to a degree.
To do it properly you need to install a new graphics card and disable the on-board graphics card from the bios.

Your new card should support std VGA as well as DVI

DVI is also capable of being hooked up to many large screen tvs

I want better grafics

For better graphics, Please do one of the following.

1) If you have a very high RAM, You can share a part of it through bios for video processing. This will help you pitch your graphics a bit more.

2) If your system is having low ram, Upgrade your RAM to higher range.

3) If you want exceptional graphics, You will need to install a graphics card with high ram. NVIDIA and ATI Raedon sells few of the best graphics cards.
