I don't think there's a 8x AGP card made that would not work at 4x, and any 4x capable AGP slot should handle an 8x card. AGP 1.0 (x2) signals at 3.3V AGP 2.0 (x4) signals at 1.5V AGP 3.0 (x8) signals at 0.8V

AGP 8X graphics cards use .08 Volts (DC)

AGP 4X graphics cards use 1.5 Volts (DC)

I want to be know what is compatible with AOpen s651m motherboard. i'm kind of an ammature, so please help.


AOpen S651M motherboard:

1) Processor Support:

Uses Intel processors that fit in a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The Processor has the contact pins (478 of them), and the processor socket has the socket holes. (478)

The Maximum FSB supported for the processor is 533MHz.
(Front Side Bus, 533MegaHertz)

Processors supported;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_pentium_4_processors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

Start with the Northwood Core models shown in the link above.
The ones that have a Front Side Bus of 533MT/s, and fit in a Socket 478.

The few shown in the next chart, Prescott (90nm), may not work. The voltage requirement.



2) Ram Memory Support:

DDR Sdram that operates at 333MegaHertz, or commonly known as PC2700.

TOTAL Maximum Amount is 2GB.
There are two ram memory slots. The Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.

If you only have one ram memory module ('Stick') place it in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
This is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.

[ The Processor 'sees' ram memory Slot 1 first ]


Graphics Card Support:

The graphics expansion slot on the motherboard is an AGP slot. (Advanced Graphics Port)
It uses the AGP 4X technology.

Above the 3 white PCI slots is the brown AGP slot.
Use AGP 4X/8X graphics cards.
(These types of AGP graphics cards can be used in an AGP 4X slot, or an AGP 8X slot)

Example of a AGP 4X/8X graphics card,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814139053

Another one,

,and yet another one,

Have a compaq computer 2008 , needed a video card ,have one cannot figure out where it should be in the back of the computer, serial # 1313CL . MODEL PRESARIO NEED SOME INTRUCTIONS. IT IS A AGP 8X VIDEO...


That would be Compaq Presario SR1313CL desktop computer.

(He says quietly so as to not offend.
Compaq = Computer manufacturer name.
Presario = Model Name
SR1313CL = Model Number.
S/N is next to the Serial Number. Do NOT give out the serial number on an open forum. Only to HP/Compaq representatives, or an authorized HP representative)

Let's take a look at the motherboard, and let me show you where the AGP style of graphics card plugs in.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00069442&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=447943

Please scroll down the page to the Illustration, and photo of the motherboard.

In the illustration look under the chipset labeled - VIA KM400A
The long rectangle with - Accelerated Graphics Port is where the AGP graphics card plugs into.

Now match this up to the motherboard photo.

You'll see the whitish rectangular shape with a lot of holes in it towards the top of the motherboard.
(Has a square hole in it)
This is the Processor socket.

Down below the Processor socket is a square silvery looking object with ribs going across it.
The silvery looking square object is a Heatsink. It is sitting on the Northbridge chip.

[The motherboard chipset for this motherboard, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.
The Northbridge and Southbridge chip are made by VIA.

The Northbridge chip is a VIA KM400A. The Southbridge chip is a VIA VT8237

Chip and Chipset are alternate terms used for I.C.
Integrated Circuit ]

Below the Northbridge chip's Heatsink is a long Brown slot.
This is the AGP expansion slot.

'Mr.Windy' here, but if I may.

1) Motherboard Specifications:
Scroll back up the page until you come to the heading on the left side - Expansion Slots
Look to the right.

Three PCI slots
One AGP 8x/4x (1.5V)

One AGP 8x/4x means the type of AGP expansion slot you have, will accept either an AGP 4X style of graphics card, or an AGP 8X style of graphics card.

1.5V stands for 1.5 Volt

This is how you know the AGP 8X graphics card will,
1) Fit in the AGP expansion slot on the motherboard
2) Be supported by the BIOS program of the BIOS chipset, on the motherboard.

Did this computer already have an AGP graphics card in it, and are you replacing it?

Replacing because the old AGP graphics card,
A) Is No good?
B) You have a better AGP graphics card?
C) The computer was using Integrated Graphics, and you want to install an AGP graphics card for better graphics performance?

There is criteria to follow before you physically install the AGP graphics card, is why I ask.

I HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM....I HAVE AN ELITE MOTHERBOARD L4VXA2 AND WAS WORKING FINE WITH AN ATI RADEON X1300PRO GRAPHICS CARD 256MB AGP 8X....BUT AFTER SOME TIME...I HAVE A PROBLEM.....I PRESS THE START...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa Alex.
No, the battery isn't the problem as you stated that without the Card your PC runs smooth, what i can guess is that the Graphic card is gone, and to confirm this you need to cross-check it on some other PC that can support it. If on that PC the problem is same then its clear that the Graphic Card is gone. And I guess you know that if a Graphic card is of 8x Video output interface, and the Board interface is of 4x, then the Card will run under the compatibility of 4x. A 8x Graphic Card is actually 4x/8x Graphic Card.
I hope you have a clear picture now, and yes I know you will be wondering that how come the graphic card can burn, then fellow never ever trust electronics, they are arbitrary.
If you have any questions do ask, I'm here to help.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.

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

Compatability


You have an AGP expansion slot for a graphics card.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)
It uses either 1x, 2X, or 4X graphics cards. Since the only AGP graphics cards out there are 4X or 8X, the 1X, and 2X are moot points. (They were also Junk anyway!)

Your AGP graphics slot only supports AGP graphics cards that are 1.5 volts. There are AGP graphics cards out there, that are Universal. Universal in that they will run as AGP 8X, (.8 volts), or AGP 4X, (1.5 volts)

This is an example:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4103516&CatId=318

Don't expect to play the high end new intense games with this. I'm afraid you'll have to update your motherboard, processor, ram memory, and a better graphics card to do that.

(Example? XFX Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard, Intel Core2 Duo E8200 cpu, Corsair XMS2 PC6400 ram memory, 1GB x2 of them, (DDR2 at 800MHz), and XFX Geforce 9800GTX+, vid card. (Plus OCZ SteathXStream 600W power supply)
This won't break the bank, and will slam some games to the wall!)

If you buy an 8x AGP graphics adapter(video card) for a 4x AGP system, the card will function at 4x rate, it will still work with your system, and also download and install the latest catalyst drivers for your computer at (ATI.com)

Grapics card


Hi,

Most current AGP video cards are now 8X and they will still work with your motherboard but will just be limited to 4X. Trying to find a 4X might be time consuming whereas using an 8X downgraded to 4x would be comparatively easier and faster.

Additionally most Video cards will work under XP with the appropriate drivers but Vista has a limited list of compatible Video cards.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
