No. There is no software to change pci-e speeds. You would need a board already set up for pci-e2 to get the top speeds. Most pci-e2 graphics cards are backwards compatible but they will run at the slower speed. Hope this helps.

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?


The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

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

2) PCI-Express:

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

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

Will the asus p5d2v mx se motherboard support tha Ati hd 5670?


The PCIE slot on your mainboard is v1.0; this should work fine with a PCIE v2.0 card (which is backwards-compatible with v1.0), but not the v2.1 cards. Make sure you also check for power requirements of any potential card. If your PC has a stock PSU, it's quite likely that a PSU upgrade will also be needed.

I have an MSI 7529 motherboard with a standard PCI slot, can i install a FX5800 sound card to it? if not, can io change the PCI slot?


Check the sound card to see if it says it is PCI or PCI Express. If its PCO Express you will need a PCI Express port on you motherboard to use this card. Unfortunately you cannot add a PCI Express port to the motherboard. If you don't have you you will need to upgrade your motherboard to use this card.

Hi Is there a PCI Express slot on the motherboard MSI K9VGM-V I see 2 PCI slots and another white slot above is this for a PCI Video card THANKS


Hi,
On your MSI K9VGM-V, you do have a PCI-Express x16 slot, which is used for most video cards now days. You can see the full slot diagram on the picture below.

The one for the video card is labeled: PCI Express x16 Slot
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! Contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

Plz suggest powerful graffic card that mainboard ms-7211 support


You are just about at the "top of the line" for that motherboard. AGP is now outdated and your board does not support PCI express. The only boost from the video card you can get is a ATI 9800 Pro or equal. Although the 9800 doesn't support shader 3.0. Your memory is also low. Try getting another 1 GB ram. Best bet is a new motherboard with PCIe and 2gb or more ram with at least a video card with 512mb GDDR3 or more.
