Compatible graphics card for intel d875pbz motherboardboard

Hi,
I am running a windows based home pc and I want to find out what my options are with respect to updating my graphics card - I have an intel D875PBZ motherboard with a pentium 4 Hyper threading processor (3.0gb, 800mhz). I am currently running an NVIDIA GEFORCE FX 5200 (PCI) graphics card. I want to upgrade to an AGP graphics card, and my motherboard limits my choice to 1.5v or 0.8v, and 8x, 4x or 1x with anAGP 3.0 connector. My board is not compatible with AGP 3.3. I have a 450 w power supply.

The problem is that manufacturers like NVIDIA are not posting information for AGP graphics cards, and I cannot tell what is compatible, based on the graphic card specs.

I realize that my options are limited because of the older set-up, but there are still AGP graphics cards out there that may be an upgrade to my current GEFORCE FX 5200.

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

I need a vedeo card that supports ecs livermore8


The Motherboard is considered the 'Building Block' of the computer.

From it all hardware components are supported.

Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, Optical Drive/s, and add-on expansion slot cards.

A graphics card (Video Card) being one.

You need a graphics card that the ECS 945GCT-HM,
or also stated as HP's Livermore8-GL6; will support.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01237572&lc=en&cc=pt&product=3632125#N33

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 945GC,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

According to Intel came out the first quarter of 2005,

http://ark.intel.com/products/34505/Intel-82945GC-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller

The year PCI Express 1.1 technology came out.
PCI Express 2.0 technology didn't come out until 2007,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_1.1

Will the ECS 945GCT-HM support graphics cards based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology?

YES!

PCI Express 2.0 technology IS backward compatible, with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You just won't get the full capability of the PCI Express graphics card; based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice? Doubtful.

From what I have seen listed in reviews on the graphics card, I would not suggest a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology.
Reviews suggest it doesn't 'play well' with a motherboard using the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

There is another thing to consider; Power Supply

Most decent graphics cards require a minimum Power Supply wattage, of 400 to 450 Watts.

This Power Supply requirement isn't just for the graphics card.
Graphics card manufacturers base it on a test computer system.
One they put together with a powerful Processor, high performance motherboard, 2GB's of Ram Memory (At least), optical drive/s, harddrive, and the graphics card. (Plus allowance for computer case fans, etc)

If you're running a 300 Watt power supply, this = No.

(Yes, even though AMD ATI Radeon graphics cards, are touted to use less power; 400 to 450 Watts is still the limit for a decent graphics card, from them. Unless you want to run a simpy PCI expansion slot graphics card, or budget/starter, PCI Express graphics card)

Hi! I am running Windows XP 64 OS on a Intel D975xbxlkr motherboard. I need to replace the pci express graphics card. One that will be compatable with the OS and motherboard. I am not gamer Any...


Everything on the Intel D975XBXLKR motherboard is 64-bit. The Processor, and Northbridge chipset included.

The Northbridge chipset handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and high-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express is high-speed graphics.
A graphics card plugged into a PCI slot (White) or using Integrated (OnBoard) graphics is NOT high-speed graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Northbridge chipset for an Intel D975XBXLKR motherboard is an Intel i975X.
(The i stands for Intel)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

ALL PCI-Express graphics cards are compatible with a 64-bit O/S.

What you may be concerned with, is whether the PCI Express technology used on your motherboard is PCI Express 1.1, or PCI-Express 2.0

It is PCI-Express 2.0 technology that is used.

[Doesn't matter anyway. PCI-Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.
A graphics card based on PCI-Express 2.0 technology will work on a motherboard with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.
You just won't get the full capabilities of the graphics card.
You probably won't notice either ]

A recommendation for your perusal;

1) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5639261&CatId=3669

Yes this is a type of gamer graphics card, and I read your requirement.
My argument is the quality for the price.
Even if you do not game your graphics will be superlative.
Excellent graphics on a computer makes a world of difference.
This graphics card will work with a 350 Watt power supply.

Then you need a graphics driver that will support Windows 7. If your motherboard onboard VGA is up to Windows Xp only and below then probably you will not able to use it to that kind of operating system like windows vista, and 7. My suggestion is that you buy a graphics card that will run and support windows vista and windows 7.

Display problem in my pc


Hi, you can go to Intel's web site & download the video drivers. Since you do not have the motherboard CD, suggest you download all the drivers listed on the Intel site. Than burn the drivers to a CD for safe keeping. Once on the site, scroll down to Drivers. Download & install or run number 3, (Video: Intel® Extreme Graphics Driver for 845 Chipset-Based Intel Desktop Boards).

Upgrade to an AGP Graphics card


Hi hes61, have you ever been to TigrerDirect? Here is an AGP 8x 1.5v card.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1892411&CatId=318
& this card
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4297004&CatId=318
Here is the hole page of AGP cards from TigerDirect.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=318&name=AGP&

The 3.0volt AGP cards are much older. All these voltages refer to the AGP slot. Many AGP cards support the 1.5v AGP slot & some AGP cards may need more power. The AGP cards that need more power to run will have a power port. Some use a power port just like a floppy disk drive & others will use a standard 4-pin power plug just like a hard disk drive. It varies between cards & some may not need the extra power.

Good luck hes61!
Thank you for using fixa.
