The Asus P5GC-MX/1333 motherboard, uses an Intel 945GC motherboard chipset,

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5GCMX1333/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

When installing in the PCI Express x16 slot on the motherboard, (Black. Gently lift up on Locking Arm to install card. Looks like you press down), there looks to be enough room.

There are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors that stick up, on one side; and one of the white PCI slots on the other side.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 is a wide graphics card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7758758&CatId=3669

Just one manufacturer. Size varies a little from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Minimum power requirement is 450 Watts.

Now bear in mind that this is for a complete computer system.
NOT, what just the graphics card requires for power.

Since there is no additional power cable to be connected, to the graphics card, the graphics card ONLY uses UP TO 75 Watts.

This is known because a PCI-Express x16 slot, will deliver UP TO 75 Watts.

If a graphics card requires more power, then a 6-pin PCI Express power cable is used. It will deliver an additional 75 Watts, bring the available power for the graphics card UP TO 150 Watts.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Graphics card requires more power than that?
Then an 8-pin PCI Express power cable is used. This power cable can deliver UP TO 150 Watts.
With PCI Express x16 slot, you are now looking at 225 available Watts,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

[NOT to be confused with the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable. This power cable is used for the MOTHERBOARD, NOT a graphics card,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8
]

The connector on the Top of the graphics card, is for SLI.

Does GA-G41M-ES2L Motherboard support asus gtx 650 graphic crad?


http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3500#ov

Specification:
Motherboard chipset;
Intel G41 Northbridge; Intel ICH7 Southbridge,
(The Intel ICH7 is also Intel part number 82801GB)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

G41, scroll down towards the bottom of the chart.
(Past P45)
Introduced in the last quarter of 2009

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_2.0

The PCI Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007

Means your PCI-Express x16 slot is based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121725

The Asus GTX650 graphics card, (No matter which version), is based on the PCI Express 3.0 technology

PCI Express 3.0 technology is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 2.0 technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_3.0

"PCI Express 3.0 Base specification revision 3.0 was made available in November 2010, after multiple delays. In August 2007, PCI-SIG announced that PCI Express 3.0 would carry a bit rate of
8 GigaTransfers per Second, (8GT/s), and that it would be backward compatible with existing PCIe implementations."

PCIe =PCI Express

So yes it will work, AND will work at FULL capacity.
Also your motherboard chipset (Northbridge), will support Intel processors that utilize an LGA 775 processor socket, AND up to an Intel Core2 Quad CPU. (Processor)

DOES TAKE SOME POWER, though!
You need a Power Supply that will not only deliver the necessary Wattage, for the computer system; but also need Up To an additional 150 Watts JUST for the graphics card itself.

Know what happens when you try to under power, a powerful graphics card?

Things BURN,
Or
The computer doesn't work

A) The contact pins in the PCI-Express x16 slot, will burn
B) The gold plated contact pins on the bottom, of the graphics card will burn

C) The graphics card requires more power, than the PCI-Express x16 slot can deliver.
A PCI-Express x16 slot can only deliver Up To 75 Watts.

A 6-pin PCI Express power cable is required.
This power cable can deliver Up To 75 Watts.

If there isn't enough power the contact pins, in the 6-pin PCI Express power cable will burn.
So will the contact pins for the power cable, on the graphics card.

The motherboard by itself requires 120 to 150 Watts.
Depending on Processor, Up To 130 Watts.
For each stick of Ram Memory add 25 Watts
25 to 30 for each Optical Drive. (CD/DVD drive)
2 to 3 Watts for each fan; to include the Processor fan, and computer case fans.

Now add 150 Watts for the graphics card.........

WHAT GRAPHICS CARDS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH THE AVERATEC ALL-IN-ONEDESTOP PC'S?


1) It has an Intel G35 Express motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Under the - Chipset heading on the left, scroll down to - G35

Note that under the - Graphics heading, all the way to the right, that the Intel G35 Express chipset;

1) Will support a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot. This means a PCI-Express graphics card can be used, IF, there is a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard.

[ PCI-Express is a technology. The current PCI-Express technology is PCI-Express 2.0

There is a PCI-Express x1 expansion slot, and a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot. (Not relating to Your computer at the moment)

The PCI-Express x1 slot is Not used for a graphics card.
The PCI-Express x16 slot IS,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express ]

2) Has Intel GMA X3500 Integrated Graphics.
Meaning if there is NO graphics card installed right now, the computer is using Integrated Graphics, (Intel GMA X3500,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA#GMA_X3500

Now,...you are essentially working on a laptop with a touchscreen.
Once you remove the 10 screws from the Back Cover, and remove the cover, you are looking at the exposed circuitry of the computer.

You NEED to follow Anti-Static Precautions. This cannot be performed as on a regular desktop computer. Touching the metal frame (Of the unplugged from power computer) will do you No good.

You need to use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source. [ Electro Static Discharge]

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

With the Back Cover off the manufacturer knows all of the hardware components are exposed. This means the person working on the computer should be aware of Static issues, and use proper tools.

The average consumer is not aware of this. This is why only a ram memory upgrade is recommended by the manufacturer. (Before they went out of business)

This is why there are no service manuals released, also.
Only for the qualified authorized service techs.

So,...let's look together. See if there is a PCI-Express x16 slot, for one.
It can be any color. Will be longer than any other expansion slot on the motherboard. The PCI slots (Usually white) are not as long.
(164 contact pins. 82 on each side)

These examples of a PCI slot, and versions of a PCI-Express slot, are all the same color. (Yellow) Not usual for a desktop computer.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

The top example is an example of a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Hardly EVER used, I didn't mention it.
Has 64 contact pins. 32 on each side.

The next slot down is an example of a PCI-Express x16 slot.
164 contact pins. 82 on each side.

Next down is an example of a PCI-Express x1 slot.
36 contact pins. 18 on each side.

Next down is another example of a PCI-Express x16 slot.

Last example is an example of a PCI slot. TOTALLY different technology than PCI-Express.
124 contact pins. 62 on each side. (Unless PCI that is 64-bit)

IF, there is a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, you can use PCI-Express 1.1 or 2.0 graphics cards.

You need to be concerned with;

A) How much height is available for the graphics card, and how much length? Check the measurements inside the computer. Match to dimensions of the graphics cards you are looking at.

B) How much POWER does the graphics card require? It's in the Minimum Requirements stated for the graphics card.
How much power is available to the all-in-one computer?

This could be an instant stopping block.

AMD ATI Radeon graphics cards generally use less power, than a comparable Nvidia graphics card.

C) Worried about your computer per se uses DDR Sdram ram memory, and the graphics card uses GDDR3 ram memory? (Just an example. Not directly related to Your computer)

Don't be. Doesn't matter what graphics memory a graphics card uses.

The graphics card does Not rely on the system resources (Processor and Ram Memory) of the computer.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, (GPU. Graphics Processing Unit), and graphics ram memory.

For additional questions, or to have me explain in further detail, or to clarify, post in a Comment.

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.

Intel 945 gccr has pci x16 slot for graphic card or not


The Intel 945GC Express Chipset contains two separate, mutually exclusive graphics
options. Either the integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics controller is used or a PCI
Express x16 add-in card can be used. When a PCI Express x16 add-in card is
installed, the Intel GMA 950 graphics controller is disabled.
The 9500 should work even though it is pci-e 2.0..i would go with a brand like BFG as they offer a lifetime warrantee..

Video chip location on computer board


If this is a direct reference to the Dell Dimension 5150 Desktop computer, it is an Intel GMA950 integrated graphics chip, soldered to the motherboard.

You will see Intel at the top of the chip, and GMA950 under Intel.

This is Dell Support, and the Service Manual for the Dell Dimension 5150/E510 Desktop computer.

More specifically this is the Specifications Documentation, and the Technical Overview part of the Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/techov1.htm#wp1058472

I referenced this page, to show you the basic components on the motherboard. Click on the sub-heading - System Board Components, in the list.

At the top of the motherboard you will see the processor sitting diagonally.

Under it you will see the Northbridge chipset, and more specifically in this crude illustration, you are looking at the heatsink which resides on the Northbridge chipset.

(Has a Z shaped clip which holds the heatsink to the Northbridge chipset. The heatsink has a 'meat cleaver' type of design)

In the area that is blank to the Left of the Battery, will be the Intel GMA950 GPU.
(GPU = Graphics Processing Unit, or graphics chip)

If you are wanting to upgrade your graphics quality, purchase a graphics card, and install it in the PCI Express x16 slot.
{In the illustration the slot is over to the Left.
PCI Express x16 connector (Slot 1)

How to know what graphics card is compatible with your computer?

1.You have a PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card. This is the style of graphics card you need.

It is the PCI Express 1.1 version technology used. I wanted to add this in case you need it for reference.

Be aware of this! No matter what anyone tells you, you can use a PCI Express graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, in your PCI Express 1.1 slot.

Why?
Because PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backwards Compatible with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Backwards Compatible. Means it will recognize the PCI Express graphics card utilizing PCI-E 2.0, and will work.

2.You have a 305 Watt power supply. You need to have enough Wattage, (Power), for the computer system, and the graphics card.

I advise using an ATI Radeon graphics card. Which one? Since you have a Pentium 4 processor, 305 Watt power supply,
(With all probability a 18 Amp, 12 volt power rail),
I suggest something along the lines of an ATI Radeon HD3850.

Depends on what you expect from your graphics.

If your reference in your query above is that you believe your graphics chip may be burned out, then I definitely suggest using a graphics card.

The PCI Express x16 slot is controlled by the Northbridge chipset. Doesn't matter if your Integrated Intel GMA950 GPU is burned out, or not.

No video output. what video cards are compatible?


Hello,

Your MB takes a PCI Express x16 (max. 2GB/s, x4 mode) video card.

Please note the warning in your manual on Page 1-22 about using "Qualified" graphics cards. Here is a link to your manual:

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5GL-MX/e2222_p5gl-mx.pdf

If you are not getting video, have you tried to reinstall the VGA driver? Just a thought. You can get it by typing your model number into the search box on the Asus support site.(Just use P5GL-MX.)
