Yes, your motherboard actually does contain an AGP 8x VGA interface. (ASUS reference is at http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=12&l3=31&model=179&modelmenu=1 AND http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=12&l3=31&model=179&modelmenu=2.) This means that the video card you replace the All in Wonder with must meet that specification unless you are prepared to switch out the board.

However, as the card you have indicated above is a PCIE x16 card, that may represent additional compatibility options. (The reference for this card is here: http://ati.amd.com/products/radeonx1300/aiw2006pcie/specs.html). This is a bit confusing, given that the motherboard specs indicate an AGP 8x interface. There is the indication on the "modelmenu=2" page that the MB includes 5 PCI expansion slots, but there is no mention of any PCIE x16 interface.

It is often best to return to the site of the manufacturer, or a respected seller, to check for compatibility with the specific brand and model of your PC. This would likely be the best approach, and if you would like for me to help with that, please post back with the information.

This motherboard has an AGP slot only so you cannot use a PCI-express video card here because they are not using the same slot and it wont fit on your motherboard, better if you buy a AGP video card...this is teh complete specs of your motherboard http://www.dealtime.co.uk/xPF-ASUS-Asus-P4P800-SE-GD-S-L-S-ATA-Motherboard-Socket-478-800MHz-FSB-P4P800-SE-GD-EAY

The Asus P4C800 Deluxe motherboard uses an AGP expansion slot, for a graphics card, Jorgito.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 550ti graphics card is a PCI Express graphics card. Uses a PCI Express x16 expansion slot,

No sir, is the answer.

A) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

B) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

You need an AGP 8X graphics card.
Here is but one example,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161337

You also need to look at what your Power Supply maximum rated Wattage is. Then look at the system requirements for the graphics card, and see what the -> MINIMUM power supply requirement is.

For the above graphics card it is 400 Watts, OR greater.

I have a Asus k8u-x motherboard that uses a AGP graphics card. Can I use a PCI graphics card in the motherboard?


Hello,

As long as you have an open PCI slot, yes. Keep in mind that is not PCI-Express X16. That is something totally different.

However the PCI card does not perform as good as an AGP card. You may have to disable the AGP slot in your BIOS too.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Anyway to connect an agp graphics card in a pci/pci express slot


The AGP bus works with a higher frequency, using 66 Mhz instead of 33 Mhz, and uses 64 bits instead of 32 bits. There is no simple way to use an AGP device on a PCI slot, and adapters are not normally available for sale.

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.

Hi would my nvidia graphic card work on a pentium 4


Graphic Cards work when the card and the slot types match. Common slot types for Graphics cards are PCI,  AGP, PCIe1 and PCIe16. If your NVIDA (chipset name) card is the same type as the slot on your board the answer is yes. If it fits the slot, it will work.

Graphics Card Compatibility with Asus M2A-MX motherboard


Hi Anli!

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.

Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.

Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.

Good luck with your new card M8!

WHICH TYPE OF GRAPHIC CARD ?


Hello,
You will need to purchase a PCI Express 16 card. This is usually abbreviated PCI-E x16. It will plug into the black (x16) slot above the 2 white (standard pci) slots. I would recommend this card which gives great performance for a good price:
