Intel D875PBZ MB - RAM limit with AGP Video Card Installed
I read in the Intel MB specs that I had to remove the AGP video card when I installed the 4ea 1gb GSkill DDR Dual Channel Memory Modules to get past a 2.5gb RAM limit. (Something about memory retention) I interpreted that to mean that once the RAM was in that I could reinstall the AGP video card. Not so....The BIOS recognizes the 4gb but Windows XP Pro does not with the card installed. Any words of wisdom?

Re: Intel D875PBZ MB - RAM limit with AGP Video Card...
Sorry as far as I know and experienced all 32 bit XP and Vista will only recognize up to 3,4 GB of ram and no more. whether its dual channel or not. You will have to go to a 64 bit O/S to use it. Even then there are limits some 64 bit O/S will only use 4 GB others more

Sounds like your computer has an integrated video card and the game is looking for an extended graphics card. This type of card plugs into the motherboard via the AGP, PCI, or PCIE slots. Depending on the type of video card and computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply when you put the card in. If this is a laptop there is no good way to upgrade the video card.
you can use up to a maximum of 224 mb of your computer's RAM for the onboard video chip to use. You can install a video card with any amount of memory (which would give you a lot better video performance).
Soyo has left the motherboard business. I find only specifications for AGP 4x port. I expect the board will support 512megs video RAM on an AGP card as AGP memory is a card limit. See for more detail: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerated_Graphics_Port Your major worry is the 3.3v and 1.5 volt support.
As you probably know 3 long beeps on an Intel motherboard is memory failure. Even if RAM is good your Motherboard may have problems in reading your ram module. If you are using a PCI or AGP video card try also removing and putting back video card, video adapters use shared RAM and can give you troubles with RAM. Always perform all maintainance on motherboard with power unplugged and avoid to touch contacts and circuits with your finger. If the 1GB module is new, verify with seller that your motherboard support this memory, some motherboard do not support double density RAM.
