Question about Foxconn VGA FOXCONN 8500GT-512 R PCI Express Graphic Card

1 Answer

Needing to know what graphics cards I can get with my motherboard

I'm attempting to get a graphics card to play modern games, CoD4, etc. I have a Foxconn 633 m02 motherboard, that's what it said directly on the motherboard. So I'm wondering if it would support like a XFX GeForce 8800 GT Video Card.

    Would that be the highest it supports?

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009 So that 512 would work fine for my motherboard? So it supports PCI express?

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009


  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    Confusing though, they seem more expensive than the 8800, etc.. Unless I'm looking at different ones...

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    So a XFX GeForce 9800 GT Video Card wouldn't work?

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    Um, may I ask how you know this? I don't really have any information on the motherboard.

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    I don't see mine there. :S

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    Okay, this might sound stupid after all this, but. Does it have PCI Express?

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    Should work in, meaning the 7800 should work in it? Or I should work on it to increase performance?

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    Why is it limited to that low of graphics card then?

  • xDrewx Jan 03, 2009

    Would that graphics card still work for most games out there?

I can not find it supporting that model but from what I have found it will support a NVIDIA GeForce 7800.

    yes from what I can see about your motherboard that is the highest it supports

  • machadojr_fe Jan 03, 2009

    yes that should work

  • machadojr_fe Jan 03, 2009

    no anything above 7800 will not work I'm not sure why they are more expensive either.

  • machadojr_fe Jan 03, 2009

    I looked up the motherboards specifications and manual from foxconn they are listed at this website

  • machadojr_fe Jan 03, 2009

    the 600 series uses the same socket, socket 478 so anything this

    should work on your motherboard

  • machadojr_fe Jan 03, 2009

    yes it does have PCI express if not I would suggest getting an AGP graphics card as they are better, last longer, and 90% of all motherboards has an AGP slot its near the PCI slots a little bit further back on the board and usually brown in color.

  • machadojr_fe Jan 03, 2009

    it may be the processor that can not handle it, it may be that the motherboard just does not support than new of a card. Most PCI graphics cards run off video memory from then card then some ram to add to the video memory AGP does not.

  • machadojr_fe Jan 03, 2009

    yes that card will work for most games an example would be the game the witcher I believe it is the recommended card.

I kinow of a 512mb geforce card but most high end cards these days are using pci-express. If you really want to continue with modern games, it may be time to upgrade your pc.

I have a Nvidia 9500 GT 1 GB Sparkle Graphic card, the Problem is when I run the games after 2 to 3 Minutes it gets stucked the problem is only while playing games even I have install the latest drivers...

This is almost definately an overheating problem. If the card is the version with a fan, make sure the fan is working and that there is no dust etc. clogging the heatsink fins. If like the picture above, it just has a large heatsink, make sure the fins are clean. Next make sure you have good airflow through the system, you may need to get another fan in the case and point it at the card to keep it cool. Finally, remember that this card isn't really suited to modern games ie. 32 processor cores, low bandwidth memory etc. It will be working very hard to run games. Try reducing the resolution and turning off anti - ailising to reduce the workload. I had the 9500gs and although it did a good job, I ultimately worked it too hard and I had the same problem you are experiencing. I changed mine and bought a Radeon HD5770, no problems now.
Hope this helps.

My graphics card is GeForce 9400 GT 1gb and whwn i play IGI 1 the screen gets blurred nothing can be seen my motherboard is of gigabyte

try these following steps:
1: update your graphics driver to one of the most recent one:
2: Lower down the hardware acceleration to minimum.
3: If you can see things in the pause menu of the game please disable all the extra graphics effect ( like anty aliasing, etc )

Hope this would help.

I haved downloaded a game called call of duty modern warfare 2 but my video card cant handle it

Hello donayre_jose, You have a really weak graphics card outdated back 2004, you aren't going to be able to play any of the new games not even low settings. I recommend that you purchase new computer with Windows 7.

Good Luck!

Game not working please help

The game that you are trying to play most likely asks for more than 128mb of RAM for a graphics card. Try upgrading your card to increase the performance of your computer and gameplay.

Which is the suitable graphics card for my motherboard?

We should know what kind of computer you have, and what chipset is on the motherboard.
What are you planning to do with the card installed. Play games? What kind of card is suggested by a game? (if it is to be used for gamming).
More information would help.

Playing cod4, slow jerky poor performance

First of all I hope that you properly uninstalled the graphics drivers and restarted before you installed the graphics drivers for your new card. Old left over drivers can cause a major problem.

Assuming you did it right read below.

What graphics settings do you have it on? And is your firewall set to let it open?

You should also list your processor and the speed and make of your memmory.

I play cod4 on high with an agp .1950 pro @ 1024x768 resolution.

turn off antileasing and aniostropic filtering. Turn all optional settings off but keep textures on medium

No offense but you have the low end version of the hd 2xxx series and can probly only play at medium at best.

You can also go into catylst control panel and make sure the settings are auto balanced.
