*********** board has an Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics, maximum shared memory of 1G, it should be automatically disabled if the pcie slot detects a video card but some mother board embedded gpu runs with the pcie card unless disabled in the bios.
Do you have plans on running a SLI (Scalable Link Interface) linking two or more gpu to produce a single output on *********** board. why SLI? because you already hae a GTS 450 GPU but you cant do this configuration because *********** board has a single pcie slot.
If you have plans on running a pci gpu with your GTS 450 it should, but if you encounter any problem try manually assigning IRQ's and resources through the BIOS? I don't have this specific
Hopefully this information helps.
Thanks you for using FixYa.
Have you accessed BIOS(startup and start tapping F2) to see if SLI and not PCIexpress is selected?
The best thing that I can recommend with any SLI or Crossfire setup is to install the cards seperately at first to make sure they are working by themselves. Then install the cards in SLI or Crossfire configuration.
Not on this motherboard, and not with two different video cards. Your motherboard does have two PCI-E slots at x1 speed, but only one slot at x16 speed. And when you use SLI you should use two identical video cards for best results.
