Question about ASUS P5LD2-VM Motherboard

Fastest pci slot?

I just installed a "Killernic" network card for more stable online video gaming. Their manual states "Choose the fastest available slot in order to achieve the highest performance". Do the PCI slots on the p5ld2 have different speeds? Is one faster than another? Thanks!

Hi stevebise, no not at all. The 2 white PCI slots on the P5LD2-VM run at the standard PCI 2.2 speed. Which is 32 bit at 33.33MHz or 133MBs. How ever your board has another PCIE port which is double the speed of a standard PCI port. This is what a PCIE 1x nic card looks like;
http://www.provantage.com/startech-st1000btpex~7STRN021.htm See page 1-22 in your manual.

If your current network card seems to function in the white PCI slot as a (KillerNic), than why buy a PCI 1x nic. As they say, "Ain't broke, don't fix it".
Hope this answers your question.

Mike

Just installed mobo ms-7091 m atx but find it as no video out ports how do i get a picture.i know its old but its my first attempt at building pc can i just install a graphics card.


I found the user manual here :
http://217.110.237.70/Manuals/Medion%208383XL%20mit%20MS-7091.pdf
Your motherboard provides 1 pci-express x16 slot, so you will need to install a pci-express video card.
Try to get a video card that doesn't need to be powered by the power supply. There are some out there that don't need to be powered, but .....
Most, but not all, pci-e video cards need to be plugged into your main computer power supply to work. If your power supply was designed to power a pci-e video card, it will have a 6 pin pci-e power connector to connect to a pci-e video card. If your power supply doesn't have this connector, you should replace the power supply with one with the pci-e power connector.

I have an emachine t2984 with a factory video card. I want to upgrade my video card but read that there are no expansion slots (PCI-e) to do this. Does this mean i need to buy a new computer to play video...


A video card can use AGP, PCI, and PCI-E slots. If it is a older model it should have either AGP or PCI ( Mainly AGP ). Many video cards are still available for these slots.
If you want to play the top games of these day though, most of the time these slots will not work games like this. They COULD work, but the best cards of today is PCI-E. Good luck and do not forget to rate :)

How do I replace a video card on the emachines T6420


The video on your computer is integrated into the motherboard, so there isn't a video card as such to replace. The motherboard has an available slot (PCI Express, also called PCI-E x16) so that you can install a separate video card, either to fix problems with the built-in video or as an upgrade.

Installing a new video card is just a matter of inserting it into the slot. When you turn the computer on after installation, the new card will be operating. Install the driver software which will be included on a CD so that Windows can work properly with the new card and you will be all set.

Many vendors sell PCI-E video cards in a wide range of features and prices. You may be able to find some locally if you are near a retailer like Best Buy, and online shopping is always available. TigerDirect and Newegg are two companies I frequently buy parts from.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

How easy is it to install a Network Interface Card into a Dell Dimension 4300? Any advice on what make/spec of card to buy?


If your PC has USB jacks, you can install a your choice of either wired or wireless network interface cards without as much as touching any tools (except for maybe a razor knife to open the package). If opening the case is something you're not comfortable doing, this may be the easiest way to get network connectivity.

Installing cards is not that difficult, but you need to open the case and determine if there is an open slot available and which type of slot it is. Most modern PCs have PCI slots and a PCI express (or older AGP video card slots). Again, not too hard figure out which type you've got.. search for pictures of slots on google. Look for PCI AGP PCIe and ISA slots so that you might compare them with those inside your PC to determine which type NIC you'll need. Then, buy a NIC that matches the slot and install as per directions.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Your desktop will support a number of video cards available. You need to discern if your PC has an available PCI, PCI-E or AGP adapter slot on the motherboard. The preferred is PCI-E as that is today's going standard. However, inexpensive cards are available for all three standards. You can use a source like www.cnet.com for reviews of latest graphics cards as well as price comparisons from online vendors. Match up the type you want above and set out how much you are willing to spend. If you intend to play graphically intensive games, make sure you get a card that will support the features of those games (2D, 3D support, Direct X 9, 10?) Check the game package or official game websites for system requirements/recommendations for their games.

I bought a video card 8J329, it doesnt match orig. mount


There are 3 types of "mounts" to put your video card in. PCI-express is the newest and fastest, AGP is the 2nd and PCI coming in last. None of them are interchangeable. If your new card doesnt match up to the slot available on your motherboard, then you will have to either return your card, or replace your motherboard, which woul likely include replacing your processor and ram, so if at all possible, see if you can exchange your card.
Check out this picture to see which slot you have.

Nvidia graphics card won't fit in asus ncch-dl motherboard


The NCCH-DL has the following slots:

1 - AGP-Pro 8x
(you can use regular AGP cards in here as well as long as you have the little plastic thing that comes with the mobo... you may even be able to without it)

2 - PCI-X

This is NOT PCI-E.

You CAN use regular PCI cards in a PCI-X slot IF the company that manufactured the card left the space between the little metal contacts... unfortunately, many PCI cards are made with the space filled in with useless plastic... I've heard you can cut the little space yourself and it'll work fine... I don't know why it wouldn't but be careful, and of course do at your own risk.

I currently use a regular PCI network card in this slot because the onboard LAN port only has Win64 bit drivers on the web site and it works just fine.

A PCI-E card will NOT work in this slot.

Generally speaking the PCI-X cards you are going to find are riser cards, network cards, firewire cards, and controler cards.

2 - Regular PCI Slots.

I think you know what PCI is.

Trying to install a video card for my nephew. Nothing fancy. He has an emachines w3650 and has an EVGA geforce9600gt card. The card is pci-e 2.0 512ddr3. When we put the card in his case and start up...


The reason may be the card is not in the correct slot. PCI-E means PCI Express which is the fastest card availble. Its the smallest white slot on the motherboard. If it is not working or there is no "2 inch long slot" then the motherboard is not setup to handle that type of card architecture. The next brand you would look for is one that says only PCI or AGP.

Please rate this solution.
