Hey, I own the same board, well the brother model, M2N-SLI and on both boards its the same, X8 when two cards are used, 16 when only one card is used, I have 8600GT two of them, previously used in sli, but now with 3 monitors I don't use sli at all, I still think both cards are working at x8 even if sli isn't enabled.

While playing wow my screen froze up and now there's lines on my is not this something that I can fix or do I need to send it back to company

Before it freezes it starts to pixel like crazy then it freezes with a striped screen,

Possible Reasons & Fixes:

* Review your Direct X services:
  1. Click Start, then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type dxdiag, then click OK. 3. This will run the DirectX diagnosis tool.

Failing that check whether there may be a conflict with any of your devices by clicking on your control panel and checking for any exclamation marks against devices.

* Try upgrading the RAM, which is likely to be the cause for issue if everything shows normal in Dxdiag settings. [Note: High graphics games is likely to lead to overheating GPU]

* If you are new to this issue, try System Restore.

* Try clearing the temp files/cache/history

* Power supply need to be more than 500kv, cooling fans play a pivotal role
[Overheating : CPU or the GPU]

* Change your Screen Refresh Rate

Other Suggestions:
1.Download and Install the Latest VGA Driver Update
2.DirectX 9.0c Reinstall
3. Buy a New Power Supply
4. Buy a New Fan for Your Proccesor and Check Your VGA Drive Fan Also Clean up the whole CPU

I purchased this product last year and was just about to install it when I relieved that it didn't have any installation instructions for Windows 7. I went to the BFG Tech sebsite only to find that they...

Really customized graphics boards have become kind of rare, most vendors use the reference design provided by the graphics chip maker and add minor tweaks for overclocking or alternate cooling only.
My bet is, you can just use Nvidia generic Windows 7 drivers HERE.

Hi! I have a Acer E946GZ Board and I'm wondering if I can put a newer graphic card in my computer or if I will need a new board. I also need a stronger PowerSupply for the newer graphic card I think (450W)

You can put any PCI-e Video card in there as long as you look at the power it needs AND SUPPLY IT, make sure it fits!!! I have a BFG GS-550w and a 8800GTX 1gb in mine and the very end is touching my Hard Drive!!! I have the Core2Duo E4700, which is the quickest CPU u can have, i tried a E5200 and it failed POST!!!!

BFG Technologies warrants to the original purchaser of the graphics card included in this package ("Product") that the Product will be free from defects in material or workmanship for as long as the original purchaser (residing in the United States or Canada) owns the product, when given normal wear and proper usage. For original purchasers residing in areas outside the USA or Canada, the limited warranty for graphic cards shall be for a period of ten (10) years from the date of purchase.

In connection with such Limited Lifetime or Ten Year Warranty, all BFG graphics cards introduced on or after February 21, 2008 must be registered on within thirty (30) calendar days of the original purchase date to activate the limited lifetime warranty or limited ten (10) year warranty.

Proper registration includes submitting proof of purchase to BFG.

Dose hp xw8200 support nvidia 8800gtx

That computer can handle an 8800GTX because it does have 1 PCIe x16 slot for it, which is what the card requires. It also should have enough power for that card as well. I imagine the Quadro is in the PCIe x16 slot though so you have to choose which card to use, not both.

Quadro cards are for workstations that are for 3D modeling and things of that nature. They are very expensive graphics cards but do not play games all that well. I imagine the 8800GTX would play games better, and certainly run Crysis if the resolusion and settings are not on HIGH.

GeForce 8800GTX and ASUS M2N-E motherboard compatability?

Yes, the GeForce 8800GTX will work with your motherboard. And yes, it ought to make your video a bit snappier, too. Given what it sounds like you're doing, I'd go with the 8800GT, with 512mb of RAM. XFX makes one with that setup, and it should only set you back about a hundred bucks. Also bear in mind that insufficient system RAM will also slow down screen changes.

8800GTX BSOD when starting games

The power supply is not powerful enough for your computer. You would need a new PSU I would recommend getting a good one from a company like FSP, PC Power and cooling, Silverstone, Xlcio, or OCZ. I am sure that this will fix your problem. I would also suggest that you follow the manufactures guide lines and get a PSU that is rated for at least 450W and supplies at least 30A on the 12V. The 30A rating on the 12V line would usually mean you would need to get a 550W PSU with one 12V rail. Keep in mind that those cards draw more power than most PSUs with multiple 12V rails can handle
