Re: i want better gaming quality for my p5vd2 mx...
You can get "any" type of PCI-X graphic card to your system, it doesnt matter if the memories on the graphic card are ddr2 ddr3 ddr4 or ddr5. It should work. If you have a C2D processor @ 1.8GHz you probably have Intel E6300. You can pair it with any graphic card. Its only up to your budget.

Go to Newegg.com or Mwave.com and do a search for 512mb video cards that are PCIe (PCI Express). Find one in your "price range" and go from there. Just don't buy one that says DDR2. Those are slow. A decent Nvidia or ATI card should be under $150. I have a 8800GT that runs just about every game on high settings. They now make a 9800GT as a replacement.
Hi there. That motherboard will support a Gforce 8400 PCI Express card and above, and of course you will be able to play the latest games on providing you upgrade your system memory too. Here is a link to tech specs on the Gforce 8400 >>>>>>>>>
Since there is 1 PCI Express x16 slot you can use any PCI Express GPU, like Asus GeForce GTX 260 896MB PhysX CUDA, EVGA GeForce 9800GT 512MB PhysX CUDA, Gainward GeForce 9800GT 512MB PhysX CUDA or whatever you want as long as it is a PCI EPRESS card.
Hi ****, you can increase you system speed slightly (Depending on the total memory speed of the card), by adding an AGP 4x video card & setting your bios to boot to AGP. See page 2-16 in your manual. Change, Init Display First to [AGP]. Doing this will disable the onboard - integrated video card. (Doing this will also free your system memory which is used to run the onboard graphics card). Increasing your system memory to its max of 2GB will help as well. Here is Crucial's memory link for your board. http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=P4GE-MXYou should increase the CPU if at all possible to its max speed in-order to see an over-all increase of system performance. (This is not what you asked for, so I'll only include Asus link for supported CPU's, for the P4GE-MX motherboard). http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4GE-MXDon't expect lighting speed but you will notice game playing speed much better. Programs should load much faster, ECT. Upgrading the AGP must comply with 4x/8x (+1.5volt only). Please see page 1-12 in your manual. Looking for XFX video card is best because it carries a lifetime warranty. Try this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150210 You can continue to search for an XFX Geforce cards. (Best on the market for their lifetime warranty).
Good luck ****!
Though the AGP slot is faster than a PCI slot, you may find an XFX PCI card with more video memory on it. Some even run DDR3 & DDR3 memory.
