Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?


The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

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

2) PCI-Express:

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

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

I have asrock p4i45gv r5.0 motherboard and want to ask if it supports ati raedon 6850 graphics card or not?


The AsRock P4I45GV revision 5.0 motherboard uses an Intel 845GV motherboard chipset.
There is one AGP slot on the motherboard, used for a graphics card.

http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=P4i45GV%20R5.0

2) Information on the Intel 845GV chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Looking down the column on the left side until we come to - 845GV, and looking across, we see under the heading Graphics that Integrated Graphics is supported. No mention of AGP support.

But AsRock has implemented it's own technology of A.G.I. at an 8x speed.
(For the Intel 845GV chipset)

A.G.I.
AsRock Graphic Interface,

http://www.asrockamerica.com/AGI8x.htm

This means that graphics cards that use the AGP 8X technology, or AGP 4X technology, can be used. (AGP4X/8X)

Advanced Graphics Port,

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

Using Sapphire's version of the ATI Radeon 6850 as an example, we can see this graphics card uses the newer technology - PCI-Express

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908

(Doesn't natter WHO makes it, the graphics card is still based on the ATI G.P.U.
Graphics Processing Unit. Or in slang terminology; the graphics chipset)

It also uses the newest version of PCI-Express, the PCI-Express 3.0 technology.

Information on PCI-Express,

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


Short answer to your question?
No

Your AsRock motherboard is set up to support AGP graphics cards that use either the AGP 4X technology, or AGP 8X technology.

Does not support graphics cards based on the PCI-Express technology.

Will a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 video card work on a P4B533-E motherboard?


HI Lau_kua08,

First off, your motherboard is a AGP 4x slot, and the Card is a AGP 8X card. However, NVIDIA based graphic cards which support AGP 8x mode (Accelerated Graphics Port) follow the AGP 3.0 specification. The AGP 3.0 specification retains backwards compatibility with older AGP 4x technology. All NVIDIA Geforce and Quadro GPU's which support AGP 8x mode are downwards compatible with AGP 4x motherboards. When a graphics card which operates at AGP 8x mode is installed on a motherboard which only supports up to AGP 4x mode, the card will automatically switch to AGP 4x operation.

So, yes it will work.

Good Luck,

Mark

I want to increase my graphic memory 128MB to 256MB. My system memory is 2GB, graphic card memory is 128MB and my graphic card is nVidia Geforce 7100 GS. Can I do that?


Yes why not, you can upgrade it to 512 even. But there are few things to check first. 1) Check your board got PCI-E slots or not (I guess this board doesn't have any)
2) Then you should have an AGP (Advance Graphic port) (Where you have attached this Card)
3) Check the AGP speed (2x,4x,8x)
4) Usually the AGP cards (The newer ones) are (4x,8x) compatibility.
Then Your board should have atleast 4x AGP Slot. I remember a software "Sis Sandra Pro" to check the AGP speed.
Afer checking and confirming these things, go to a shop and but a graphic card, (Which falls in the catagory i described above).
Better go for nVidia brand. But let me advise you, You should shift yourself on the PCI-Express PC's. On those PC's you can enjoy some gaming experience.
If i was helpful, kindly do Rate!

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.
