Re: what graphics card this motherboard will support

Here is the link to the product support page for your motherboard; The motherboard includes an Intel Extreme graphics card built in - the necessary drivers are available throught the link above. Here is the link to the manual for the motherboard if you need it; Page 1 gives all the possible expansion graphics cards you could use - the gigabyte AG325(G) is recommended. Hope this helps :)

Re: what graphics card this motherboard will support

Gigabyte did not put a special graphics slot (AGP, PCIe etc) on this corporate series board. It has good internal graphics support. If you would like to run two monitors, it appears that one choice is the CHAINTECH P-FX20 256MB Geforce FX5200 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card, based upon user reviews at NewEgg. You may need help getting both graphics adapters to operate together. Typically, there is a jumper on the card that disables "Primary VGA" mode. Your OS should boot using the on-board adapter and then you can tell the OS that it should "Extend the Desktop" to the second (PCI) adapter. Your results may vary.

My Dedicated Video Memory Is 64MB. How to i increase dedicated video memory.I Use gigabyte Motherboard

Hello here is the gigabyte homepage:

The manual can be found by, selecting the mainboard number.

The video memory can be changed in the bios settings, but can probably only be decreased to a lower setting.

I guess the 64 mb, is the max memory setting.

The solution is to add a better graphic card, on the mainboard for better performance.

A graphic card can be bought in a computer shop, or online.

You just have to know, what socket the mainboard has.

There is 2 different ones: AGP or PCI-E slot

Good luck

VGA Support?

Hello here is the homepage:

Your mainboard supports 1 x AGP 8x slot ( the green slot )

The new PCI-e express does not fit the socket.

When you add a bigger graphic card, you will probably need a bigger power supply.
I recommed a 500 watt or bigger.
Most external graphic cards uses 150 to 250 watts, depending of the size of the card.

I also recommed ATI/AMD graphic cards.
Such graphic card, can be bought online, or in a computer shop.

Good luck

I have a Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M Motherboard with 2gb ram. I want to disable the onboard graphics card and add another VGA card. Which card should I go for?? Will adding VGA card, show physical memory as 2gb...

Hello you can download the manual, and drivers here:

You can add a graphic card 1 x AGP slot (8x/4x-AGP 3.0 compliant), supports 1.5v display card only.
And Max capacity: Up to 2GB DDR400 RAM by 2 DIMM slots.

ATI/AMD makes very good graphic cards.

Adding a graphic card on the mainboard will not slow the physical memory. It has it`s own ram.

Good luck

Dear Sir, Gigabyte 8VM533M-RZ Motherboard shows 640x480. I can not set to 800x600 or above and permit for limited job. Is there any solution? Please help me. -----Harun

Hello sir,
From the motherboard brand you have, below are the technical specifications: Chipset: VIA ProSavageDDR P4M266A Graphics: ProSavage8 Graphics engine.
The reason you cannot set the screen resolution in Windows XP above 800*600 is because you do not have the appropriate drivers installed for your machine, i.e for the VIA ProSavage8 Graphics card. To solve this problem,you need to download and install the necessary drivers. You can download them from the link below:
Just accept the license agreement and browse through the FTP folders for the S3 ProSavage8 graphics driver(Alt. called ProSavageDDR).
Hope this solves your problem.

Kind attention tech support, I have this CPU- INTEL Pentium 4 Processor, LGA775 Pkg, 2.66 GHz, 1MB L2 Cache, 533 MHz FSB MERCURY Main Board PNMCP73V, 1GB DDR2 667MHz Kingston DDR2 RAM SEGATE SATA...


You could put either of the graphics you mention in that motherboard providing you get the PCI-Express versions of them.

The motherboard will support a DDR3 structured graphics card in all cases at that is determined by the card not the motherboard as you get specific drivers for them which come included with the card or you can download the latest drivers from ATI or nVidia's support websites.

That motherboard will also support a gigabyte plus graphics card.

Kind regards.

Stop using all caps, be explicit about what is improper to you, and try the Gigabyte websites. You also haven't specified which OS you want drivers for, though the place to find that out is definitely one of Gigabyte's sites. The trick when Googling with respect to Motherboard part numbers is to skip the hyphens, which are interpreted as metacharacters in most search engines.

AGP card support

Hi, Unfortunately no AGP slot nor PCI-E. The Gigabyte GA-8I845GV motherboard has only 3 Expansion Slots and all of the are PCI (33MHz & PCI 2.2 compliantt). From their website, here's an image of the motherboard It has a built-in Intel® Extreme Graphics Engine (845GV chipset) for video with max of 128 mb shared memory. Should you wish to install an add-on 3rd party PCI video card, Inno3D FX5500 256ddr PCI slot tv-dvi are still available (at least in my location) for an equivalent of about 3.5K INR (80USD+). Hope this gives you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
