I have a ASRock CONROE1333-DVI/H R2 motherboard and i wanted to know if i could use a graphics card that requires a pci express 2.0 slot


Absolutely!

The AsRock Conroe1333-DVI/H R2 mobo uses PCI-Express 1.1 technology. It's in the Intel 945G motherboard chipset.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=CONROE1333-DVI/H

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

Scroll down to bottom of chart. 945G made in 2005.

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

Scroll down to History and revisions.
PCI Express 2.0 -> 15 January 2007

A graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI express 1.1 technology.

Why?

Because PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You just won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice? NO

PCI Express 1.0a, and PCI Express 1.1, operate with a per-lane data rate of 250MegaBytes per Second. (250MB/s)
Transfer rate of 2.5Gigabits per Second. (2.5Gb/s)

PCI Express 2.0 operates with a 500MB/s per-lane data rate.
Transfer rate of 5.0Gb/s.

Make SURE you have Windows running, then install the software for the graphic card -> F-I-R-S-T, then physically install the graphics card.
(Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions -> FOLLOWED)

The computer will not use the graphics cards software, UNTIL the graphics card is installed.
It will keep on using the integrated graphics on the motherboard, until the graphics card is installed.

Means get the motherboard going first, use it's integrated graphics.
Install software for graphics card, and then Physically install the graphics card.
(Don't forget to attach the monitor cable to the graphics card, lol!)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Maximum graphic card memory


You could increase to a 1000Gig's if they made one.

A graphics card has it's own graphics processor, and graphics ram memory. It runs independent of the System Resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The graphics I.C., or graphics chipset, is a GPU,

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

A GPU can be mounted directly to the motherboard, and use some of the system resources. Integrated graphics.
Or it can be mounted to a removable graphics adapter card.

IF there IS a 'bottleneck', it will be your Processor, and amount of Ram Memory.
Should have at least 2GB of ram memory
It will take up to 4GB. can also support DDR2 Sdram at 667MegaHertz. (PC2-5300)

Intel 945G motherboard chipset.
Intel 82945G Northbridge chip,
Intel 82801GR Southbridge chip. (ICH7R)

Supports Intel Core2 Duo processors, with a Front Side Bus of
UP TO 1066MegaHertz. (FSB up to 1066MHz)

Intel 945G chipset was brought out in 2005. This means to me, the PCI Express technology used on your motherboard, is
PCI Express 1.1

I would stick with the graphics cards using PCI Express 2.0 technology.
I've read reports where the PCI Express 2.1 cards, weren't 'playing nice' with motherboards using the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Unless you just wanta' experiment? Who knows?

How many maximum Watts is the Power Supply, capable of delivering at 80 percent, and how many Amp's does the 12 Volt power rail have?
(If there is more than one 12 Volt power rail, you can add together for the total 12 volt Amp's )

See what the minimum requirement is for the Power Supply. make sure you have MORE than enough.
Also if the graphics card requires an additional power cable; make sure your Power Supply has it.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=555358&CatId=3669

But the minimum wattage for the Power Supply is 450 watt.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129203

Power Supply? 500 Watt.

Windows 7 drivers for Optiplex GX620

I have windows 7 on my opitplex gx260 and want to upgrade the grafic card recomendations


The Optiplex GX260 is limited in it's graphics card upgrading, due to,

1) The limited size inside the computer case, if the Optiplex GX260 is a Small Form Factor, (SFF), or Small Desktop computer.
The Small Mini-Tower may also be fairly limited because of size constraints.

SFF is,
3.57 inches Tall (9.0cm)
12.54 inches Wide (31.9cm)
13.93 inches Long (35.4cm)

Small Desktop,
4.2 inches Tall (10.6cm)
15.3 inches Wide (38.9cm)
17 inches Long (43.2cm)

Small Mini-Tower,
16.7 inches Tall (42.5 cm)
7.1 inches Wide (18.1cm)
17.6 inches Long (44.7cm)

2) Uses AGP graphics cards.
However will use either 4X or 8X AGP graphics cards.
(AGP 8X being the better technology)

3) Power Supply
It's a 200 Watt supply, probably with a 10 Amp, 12 Volt power rail.
With one of the more powerful AGP 8X graphics cards out there, you probably will be alright, but the age of the power supply is what concerns me.

With the added load of an AGP 8X graphics card, it could cause the power supply to fail. Perhaps not right away, but probably right in the middle of a killer game.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 845G.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chipset.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit, or Microprocessor, or Processor)

When dealing with Integrated Graphics such as is on your motherboard now, the Southbridge chip handles it.
(Chip, and Chipset are slang terms for I.C., or Integrated Circuit)

The Northbridge chip on the Optiplex GX260 is an Intel 845G. The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH4.

Just about any AGP 8X graphics card, will S-M-O-K-E the integrated graphics you have now.

Also Integrated Graphics has to use some of the System Resources.
Some of the Processor, and Ram Memory resources.
With a dedicated graphics card, it has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU - Graphics Processing Unit, and graphics ram memory)

This frees up the System Resources for the computer, and allows better graphics.

The SFF, and Small Desktop GX260 will require using a half-height graphics card. Not as tall as a normal graphics card.

The Small Mini-Tower may also. The computer case size is measured at the Outside edges. This doesn't give you an accurate measurement, of Inside the computer case.

For this type of GX260, you will have to physically measure from the AGP graphics expansion slot, (The small black slot above the white PCI slots, and below the Processor socket), to the inside edge of the computer case.

Determine whether the graphics card has to be half-height, or full height.

In an added comment I will list three AGP 8X graphics cards examples.
One in a half-height configuration, two in a full height configuration.

Upgrade graphic card ?


I am not sure what games you are looking to play, but with that power supply I would not go beyond the Nvidia 9500GT or the ATI Radeon HD 3650 Both cards are pretty much equal. I really would not recommend anything under these two cards for any type of gaming. Power consumption would be about the same for both cards which would be less than 200 watts for the entire system

The HD 3650 is superior to either the HD 2400 XT or the 8500 GT

I Tried to ddownload Sigmatel HD Audio Driver Version 6.10.0.5274 the Response was:device object not present My CPU Processor: 2.8GHz Pentium D 820 Memory: 1GB DDR2 Storage: 250GB hard drive Optical D


Hmm.. interesting,


Checked the typical settings
?

- Volume control settings are normal (Sound on/not muted)

- Device Manager can detect a sound driver ~ if not, install it

- Driver File did not download correctly ~ try re-downloading the file

- If using audio jacks (usually known as the "green" cable), make sure that they are working properly


If this didn't solve the problem, reply to me thanx.

Lack of knowledge of Dell OptiPlex SX280 SFF video capabilities


Nop, you will not be able to watch 1080p, the graphic card is not that good, you have an integreted intel GMA 900 graphic card, that card can never show full HD as 1080p is. And the 512mb memory that you have, thats is not good enough either.


Sorry M8



Good luck

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260


Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!
