Question about XFX GeForce 6800 GT, (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Is my motherboard compatible with a new graphic card

Dear FixYa,

I have an older PC, with an Asus P4
S800MX motherboard, with a Celeron2.4mHz processor, that has an SiS661FX chipset for on board graphics display.

I recently needed toreplace my display and the new one is a 22" LCD, with a 1680x1050 XHD natural resolution.

The properties of the display card would not give me this resolution option, so I upgraded to the latest SiS661FX drivers (which promised support for this resolution...).

But now, when selecting this resolution (1680x1050), the screen becomes black and after 15 seconds reverts to its previous hazy setting...

I was told that the problem can be solved by installing a separate graphics card that would support 1680x1050 XHD.


The Asus specs say the graphics slot in this board is AGP x8 (1.5V only_... ATi specs for their 9250 card say AGP 8x 0.8V


My other PC has an Asus P4P800 motherboard, with a P4 2.8 processor and your ATi Radeon 9250 graphic card, which only needed a drivers update to support 1680x1050 XHD. But the specs for this motherboard do not say in the AGP x8 1.5V only...


In short; before I buy the Radeon 9250 card, or any other, I would want to know if it is compatible with the AGP x8 1.5V that the Asus P4S800MX provides; despite the card specs saying 0.8V.

Sincerely,

Dar Zeelon

    Wiz,


    I already installed the Radeon 9250 and yes, it does work.

    Asus wrote and ATi confirmed that it would actually be running at AGP x4 1.5V, but it does support the 1,680x1,050 resolution.

    This new card cost peanuts and solved the problem.

    Thank you, Wiz, everyone.

Being agp3.0, it is backwards compatible so in theory, it should work. With the older system, it may be dangerous. I would find a card that clearly states that it works in x8 (3.0) 1.5v. If it doesn't work it could fry the whole system. If i find a card that works, I'll let you know.

Welcome to FixYa!

Regarding this particular model, this has AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) 4X expansion slot for graphics cards, I don't think it is still available in the market, you may try to purchase a good second hand graphics card for this and this is fully compatible with windows XP.
Just ask for AGP 4X compatible cards, available graphics memory will be 64 MB, 128 MB and 256 MB. Hope this helps.

Compatibility


No, the above video card will not work with the motherboard you have.
the video card you listed is AGP, your motherboard has PCI-Express slots, so you will need to purchase a newer video card.
When purchasing a video card, be sure to look on the box for "PCI-E" or "PCI-Express"

Pc restarts in between the games


is it summer now there? It sounds like heating problems. If you keep the system very cool does it still do the same? (Try opening your side panel, and putting a fan in front of it, blowing into your case, also check to make sure that the fan on the gfx card can spin freely and isn't hampered by dust particles. Also do you have thermal paste? i recommend taking your cpu heatsink off, wiping off the old paste, and applying new paste. I've seen thermal paste get old and then cause this kind of problem. If that still doesn't work, try drivers like bunny recommended. Good luck! :)

Graphics card no display, not recognised


Hi DarkPredUK.
You need to check you're bios. (See below).
The PCI-E card (Single video card) must be placed into slot, PCIEX16_1 as shown on page 2-3 & 2-18 in you're user manual. The bios must be set correctly as seen on page 4-26 to PCI-E first. You must have two PCI-E cards installed to run SLI mode. (They must be exactly the same graphic cards).
Asus M2N-E SLI main web site/drivers, manual ect.

Good luck DarkPredUK.
