GeForce 8800GTX and ASUS M2N-E motherboard compatability?

Will NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX work with ASUS M2N E motherboard?
I currently have a GeForce 7300 GS with this motherboard. It does not handle video with text over the top of it well. Text moves very slowly during presentations when it should just snap to the next screen. Will upgrading to the GeForce 8600GT or 8800GTX with onboard DDR3 help my screens change faster?

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.

Cheers

Certain video cards are only compatible with certain processors on motherboards. AMD CPUs work with Nvidia and Intel CPUs work with certain graphics cards also. Are you sure it's even compatible?

It seems like you have either a thermal problem (processor cooler defective, undersized or incorrectly mounted) or a defective power supply. I'm about 90% sure that the problem is thermal.

My geforce 9400 GT will not properly install drivers in my ASUS M2V-MX SE. When install the nvidia drivers old and new. the video card has a yellow exclamation next to it


If you uninstall the onboard driver and then update the new cards driver in device manager the problem should be solved.

If not you can always reinstall your operating system, that usually solves any driver issue.

If that doesn't work then your card is most likely not compatible with your motherboard.

Nvidia geforce 9500 gt gpu work on asus p5n73-am


Hi!

Nahh...you can use that gpu with that mobo, but i wouldent recomend it. The GPU - Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard, and that mobo dosent have that. It might work but you cant use the full power of that gpu on that mobo. And beside that, that gpu is bigger then the mobo itself
I sugest you to buy another mobo, the gpu you looking at is a good one but your mobo isent that good.

Here is the spec for the GPU:

And here are the spec for that mobo:

Good luck

Problem


I suspect that the PC is still using the driver for the old card. Install the drivers for new card, and use the control panel to select the correct driver set. One way to do this, is to use Device Manager in 'System', and delete the current display driver, and then refresh to get the new one. You may want to set the display to 800x600 resolution before starting to do this.

Problem


I would take these steps to resolve the problem.

First, go here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us and update the drivers, check if it is working

If that does not work, reseat the videocard (Take out and put back in.)

If that does not work, make sure the power supply 6pin AUX cable is plugged into the videocard so it has enough power.

I hope these steps help ya resolve your problem.

I own a 8800 series and they are nice cards!
