ATI Radeon 4000 Series - (ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2, ATI Radeon HD 4890, ATI Radeon HD 4870, ATI Radeon HD 4850, ATI Radeon HD 4830, ATI Radeon HD 4770, ATI Radeon HD 4600, ATI Radeon HD 4550, ATI Radeon HD 4300 and ATI Radeon HD 4200)
ATI Radeon 3000 Series - (ATI Radeon HD 3800, ATI Radeon HD 3600, ATI Radeon HD 3400)
ATI Radeon 2000 Series - (ATI Radeon HD 2900, ATI Radeon HD 2600, ATI Radeon HD 2400)
ATI Radeon X Series - (ATI Radeon X1950, ATI Radeon X1900 and ATI Radeon X1800)

If your Motherboard supports PCI-Express X16 then here is a list of compatible Nvidia Cards.
GeForce 500 Series - (GeForce GTX 580)
GeForce 400 Series - (GeForce GTX 480, GeForce GTX 470, GeForce GTX 465, GeForce GTX 460, GeForce GTS 450, GeForce GT 440, GeForce GT 430, GeForce GT 420)
GeForce 200 Series - (GeForce GTX 295, GeForce GTX 285, GeForce GTX 280, GeForce GTX 275, GeForce GTX 260, GeForce GTS 250, GeForce GTS 240, GeForce GT 220, GeForce GT 210)

dear sir, can i use geforce fx 5500 graphic card in mercury mainboard PI945GCM ?


Unfortunately the Geforce FX5500 is an AGP8X card and the mercury mainboard PI945GCM only supports PCI-Express 16X graphics cards.

is nvidia 9600gt graphic card compatible with asus p5rd2vm motherboard


Yes.

1) The Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard has a PCI Express x16 slot.

The Nvidia 9600GT uses a PCI Express x16 slot.


2) The PCI Express version used on the Nvidia 9600GT is PCI Express 2.0

The PCI Express technology used on the Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard is PCI Express 1.1

The motherboard chipset used on the Asus P5RD2-VM shows us this.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI RD480. (Before AMD bought ATI out)

The ATI RD480 chipset came out September 27, 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges

Scroll down until you come to > RD480 in the left column, then read across.

The PCI Express technology started under another name, then was changed to PCI Express.
The first version was PCI Express 1.0
Then PCI Express 1.1

In 2007 (January 15) the PCI Express 2.0 technology was brought out.


The PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
(With PCI Express 1.0 also, but it depends on the graphics card being used)



In otherwords, a graphics card that has been based upon the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice?
NO.

[ If I had my choice I would run an Nvidia 9800GT instead.
Depends on the price, and availability of the 9600GT I would assume, though.
You may also need a more powerful Power supply.

PCI


"As of 2007, PCI Express has replaced AGP as the most common interface for graphics cards on new systems. With a few exceptions, all graphics cards being released today (2008) from ATI and NVIDIA use PCI Express. NVIDIA uses the high bandwidth data transfer of PCIe for its newly developed Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology, which allows two graphics cards of the same chipset and model number to be run as a pair, allowing increased performance. ATI also has developed a dual-GPU system based on PCIe called CrossFire. Towards the end of 2007, AMD released a motherboard chipset, the AMD 790FX, which supports up to four PCIe x16 slots, allowing tri-GPU and quad-GPU configurations for ATI cards.
Uptake for other forms of PC expansion has been much slower and PCI remains dominant. PCI Express is commonly used for onboard gigabit ethernet and wi-fi but add-in cards are still generally PCI, particularly at the lower end of the market. Sound cards, modems, serial port cards and other cards with low-speed interfaces are still nearly all PCI. For this reason most motherboards supporting PCI Express offer legacy PCI slots as well."
