Hd 1080 videos not Supporting


This motherboard has the integrated Intel GMA 950 GPU.
This graphics processor is very weak, it uses system memory instead of the normal separate graphics memory, and it uses the system CPU for graphics functions that are normally done by the Graphics Processing Unit chip.
This means that if the CPU has to do other tasks, the Video will suffer.
If there is a lack of free RAM, the video will not function because paging to the hard disk (Virtual Memory) is way too slow.
The first thing to check is CPU usage, and free RAM under normal conditions before you try HD video.
Are there enough free resources ?

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!)

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.

Hi! I am running Windows XP 64 OS on a Intel D975xbxlkr motherboard. I need to replace the pci express graphics card. One that will be compatable with the OS and motherboard. I am not gamer Any...


Everything on the Intel D975XBXLKR motherboard is 64-bit. The Processor, and Northbridge chipset included.

The Northbridge chipset handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and high-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express is high-speed graphics.
A graphics card plugged into a PCI slot (White) or using Integrated (OnBoard) graphics is NOT high-speed graphics.

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

The Northbridge chipset for an Intel D975XBXLKR motherboard is an Intel i975X.
(The i stands for Intel)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

ALL PCI-Express graphics cards are compatible with a 64-bit O/S.

What you may be concerned with, is whether the PCI Express technology used on your motherboard is PCI Express 1.1, or PCI-Express 2.0

It is PCI-Express 2.0 technology that is used.

[Doesn't matter anyway. PCI-Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.
A graphics card based on PCI-Express 2.0 technology will work on a motherboard with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.
You just won't get the full capabilities of the graphics card.
You probably won't notice either ]

A recommendation for your perusal;

1) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5639261&CatId=3669

Yes this is a type of gamer graphics card, and I read your requirement.
My argument is the quality for the price.
Even if you do not game your graphics will be superlative.
Excellent graphics on a computer makes a world of difference.
This graphics card will work with a 350 Watt power supply.

Intel LAN OEM


I'm not sure what you're looking for but' if you are looking for drivers, I would suggest using Intel because your board is almost all Intel. Socket LGA775, Intel 945g chipset, Intel GMA950 graphics, and Intel supported AC97 codec sound. I would suggest using Intels Driver Update Utility first and see what it recommends here:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/
You can also try downloads individually here, just enter your operating system:

Is there a updated video driver for a elite 945gct-m/1333?


Generally the latest drivers are available from the Intel Site.

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/detect.htm

that is a good place to go to, run the Applet and see if it finds updates. You have a 945G series Chipset which uses the Intel GMA 950 graphics chip.

Hope this helps!

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
