Have a NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX mothrboard.Does it support gddr5 graphics card

Yes, vipinpabraha.

In fact if they come out with GDDR10, it will support that also.

Because a graphics card's graphics memory, runs independent of the system resources.

Would not matter if your motherboard used DDR Sdram, and the graphics card uses GDDR5.

(Yes, I know. The Nvidia NForce 780i SLI mobo uses DDR2 Sdram at 800MegaHertz. Or also stated as PC2-6400. Always wanted one of those motherboards)

Integrated graphics, or also known as OnBoard graphics, borrows from the System Resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
(OnBoard - ON the motherBOARD )

This slows the computer down when using an intensive graphics program, such as an intensive game, for example

A graphics card has it's own Processor (G.P.U.), and graphics ram memory. It doesn't need to borrow from the system resources.

Beep Codes?


This board has been known to have some issues, the Asus' PEG optimizations aren't fully supported by some video cards like the Gigabyte GeForce 6600 GT. One example of a fully supporting video card is the Asus Extreme Radeon EAX1900XTX.

If possible, try using a different video card (one that supports
Asus' PEG optimizations - PEG Link Mode overclocking feature; PEG Link for single/dual graphics cards ). Or you may want to try and disable the PEG entirely.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Can you use the new flexible sli bridges with during sli mode? Do you need the retention bracket thing? If so what size can you use

Scalable Link Interface from Nvidia. (Crossfire is AMD ATI)

You are linking the two interface connections, of two LIKE graphics cards.

The signal and Power connections. A lot of Amp's for power is needed, and a GOOD connection should be used.

Yes, I would definitely advise using the Retention Bracket.

If you have a loose connection, or a connection becomes loose over time, resistance in the connection will be created. Resistance = Heat.

The SLI Bridge connector's (Link) contacts will burn, as well as the contact pins on the graphics cards.

For a while you won't even notice, then as time ensues you start having major problems. By this time the contacts are so burnt, that you may as well fly the graphics cards at the neighbors barking dog.

(The contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card, as well as the PCI Express x16 slot contacts, will burn also. Means NEW motherboard)

Just for added info about SLI, here is SLI Zone from Nvidia,

(Suggest you start with - Learn - in the top header. Then go to the Community Forums)

Need m2n sli

Your SLI drivers as you mentioned were installed when your chipset drivers were installed. (NVIDIA nForce CK804 Chipset Driver).
If you use 1 PCI-E graphics card the bios will need to be adjusted to [Auto].
Using 2 PCI-E graphics cards you must install the EZ selector card correctly. See page 4-20 section 4.4 Adjust; SLI Configuration. Than see section 4.4.6 in your manual
Open the Asus link below if you need drivers for your M2N-E SLI;

This may seem a bit tricky but its not. First time around the bios settings using SLI graphics cards will appears tough but you'll get it.

1long 2 short beeps, No POST/Visual display

Hi there
One Long and Two Short Beeps = Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue.
If you are using a PCI Express graphics card remove it and use the on-board VGA/DVI port
If it is the on-board graphics you are using clear the cmos
d015d7b.jpg<<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Have abit - kn8 put 2 gig memm in powered up no picture think I have wrong video card do you know proper one

Hey there,

As per ur question, this problem occures due to following reason:

1. When ur data cable of ur monitor is bad : Try another data cable this causes only to blink LED of ur monitor which not allows any graphics to display.

2. Your RAM can also be responsible for this problem: If your RAM goes Bad then it doesnot allow any graphics file to load and thus causing not to display anything on ur monitor screen as well as ur system keep restart at POST (Power On Self Test) Operation (When VRAM driver is not loaded.

and the last reason is:

3. Your system is not able to recognise your Graphics card due to Either IRQ inteferance or ur graphics card hardware problem (caused due to bad of VRAM installed on ur graphics card): Remove ur graphics card from expansion slot (PCI-E/AGP)and then plug monitor data cable to normal serial port available in the motherboard (Resides back side of ur system).


Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me.

Motherboard specs

Hi dwman113,
Yes your Mach Speed MB will support 2x1 GB, Dual Channel Mode DDR2-800MHz, PC6400 memory modules. (Manual states the memory dimms should be paired).
Also known as matched memory.
Max Shared Video Memory is 256MB, refers only to the integrated built in video card.
Click this link to help you understand what CL stands for;
Small example. CL3 runs faster than CL5.
You can run any PCI-Express 16x graphics card & it can be rev 2.0. Graphics cards are backwards compatible which means it will also run at v1.0. You should not buy a SLI card because you only have 1 PCI-E x16 slot. To run SLI, (Hooking up 2 PCI-E x16 cards together viva a small SLI connector) your motherboard would need two PCI-E x16 slots & the board must support SLI mode & your's does not. Here is the main web site link for your Mach Speed MSA2-6100V MB.
If you have any more issues or questions just post it & we'll go from there.

Good luck dwman113!

System wouldn't Boot

If your CPU or memory were an issue your Asus board would sound off with BIOS beeps. Asus uses the Award BIOS & you can see what these beeps mean at the link below. Regaurding your PC not able to boot is an issue with your PCIE/PEG video card-in relationship with BIOS setting & the SLI switch card mode that came with your board. When running 1PEG video card you must set this in the BIOS to Auto & you need your SLI switch card connected in its slot. By default, the EZ Selector card is set for a single graphic card. When you install dual PCIE graphic cards on A8N-SLI series motherboards, please make sure EZ Selector card set to the Dual Video Card side and properly inserted. Link to Award Bios beep codes:
Will come in handy.
Reading the FAQ's at Asus site will help you better understand your A8N-SLI Deluxe. You'll need to fill in the, "Please Select the Product" first:

Hi, trying to boot from your old drives is the problem.
The Boot sequence for your new board are different from the ol one. Your sequence to get your system going is to load the mobo drivers first, then run your XP disk again and at the second prompt select REPAIR this will run the same as a normal install but should save your existing data and settings.
One problem you may have is activating XP as Microsoft do not approve of multi installs and the new board will show as a different computer.
