Question about ASUS P5SD2-X Motherboard
Asus compatibility list shows IntelD 820 and D840 CPUs are compatible with this board, D830, also a Smithfield in the same range, is not mentioned. Is it compatible?
If the manufacturer hasn't mentioned it then it is either not compatible, or it is the wrong CPU socket.

Your board is PCI EXpress so as long as you get a PCI express Video card you should be fine. Just dont get a video card with a Faster Bus speed than your Mobo or else its wasted potential, but other than that, ** problem, have fun playing video games :)

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.
Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.
Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.
Good luck with your new card M8!

Basically, any graphics card is capable of being compatible with this motherboard. I had some difficulties for a while until I figured out you have to MANUALLY set it to use your PCIE 2.0 GPU output.
How to do this is to set your jumpers to external output only. First thing you'll want to do is update the BIOS on the motherboard (Which you can do by getting "Asus-Update". Find it on google, easy to use, just make sure your computer doesn't crash during the BIOS flashing.
Afterwards, set the jumpers to use your PCIE-2.0 slot. Took me a little while to figure this out, and it's a little hard to explain.
Above your PCIE-2.0 slot there are 5 little blue 'plastic-like' things. Those are your jumpers. Take them out and insert them HORIZONTALLY as such:
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ]
Basically, make sure the jumper things are connecting the little drawing there. They HAVE to be horizontally inserted, otherwise this WILL NOT WORK. Just plug in your monitor to the graphics card's output, and you're good to go. Hopefully it works for you.
