Re: cant get sli working

This video card only functions as SLI with the Gigabyte motherboard GA-K8NXP-SLI. If you go to this website, it will tell you more about it.

Upgrade graphics on a Asus psgc mx 1333


I remember the days when I was noobin' it up w/ my PC, and I also wanted a new video card. But that was 4 years ago. I know a lot more now lol.

To keep things simple, I'll say this:

You can fit any video card in there as long as it's for a PCI-E x16 slot, which is a lot better than say, the old school AGP slots.

The possible not-so-good news is that it's not PCI-E 2.0 x16 compatible, which rules out most of the newer cards. Is a great place to buy computer parts, as they usually have some nice deals on there. I built the computer I'm typing this on from there, so I've been a customer.

One of the great things about the site is the way you can filter things down, and by slot type is one of your choices that video card is probably the best one they have, and it's pretty cheap compared to newer cards. Don't expect to play the newest games on there, as this isn't all too great of a card.

If you really want to get into some good gaming, you'll need a new rig, which you can either build or buy (I recommend build....saves A LOT of dough)

Hope this helps ya out bud,

Good Luck :)

Is the PCI Express Slot a 2.0 x16? that could be the issue not positive those cards will work without that specific slot Also check on the graphics card for a 6Pin plug usually they wont work well with out it hooked up to the power supply the plug should say PCI-Epress 1 or 2 good luck!

I want to use two Graphics card in single motherboard

Not on this motherboard, and not with two different video cards. Your motherboard does have two PCI-E slots at x1 speed, but only one slot at x16 speed. And when you use SLI you should use two identical video cards for best results.

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.

> 512 MB of system memory heres a list of SLI ready motherboards. dont gotta use this site to buy it just giving you and idea of whats out there for you.

Seems from what i gathered that as long as its an SLI ready motherboard with a open 16x PCI-E compliant slot and of course its gotta fit your tower. Find out the form factor of the tower then also make sure that it fits the correct type of ram that you have and prosesser. Then u should be good to go!

Geforce 8600 GT Broken down?!

Have you tried the non functioning video card in another computer?

Did it work?

If not, replace it.

If yes, have you tried taking the card out and reseating it? This will be done anyway if you try it out on another computer and then put it back into yours.

Is this card one of those that require a separate power feed to it? Is this connected? Does the lead join the harness up near the Power Supply or way down near the end of the harness? (this makes a difference to the amount of power available and can cause the video card to malfunction if the voltage is too low).

Sorry I don't have an immediate answer, there are too many variables.

Good luck.
