Is it possible to dual video card in ECS 945gct-m (v1.0)?


http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=727&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

Let's read together,

" 945GCT-M v1.0 motherboard features the 945GC and ICH7 chipsets, supporting Intel Core 2 Duo/ Pentium D processor up to 1066 MHZ FSB and GMA950 embedded.

-> With two PCI-E graphic cards, this board can support Scalable D.G.E., which produces supercharged 3D performance, and enables two bridged PCI-E based graphic cards to work jointly.

-> Moreover, with enabled -> onboard VGA and -> PCI Express add-on card, this board can perform Surround Display which provides a panoramic view, along with an unique real-time experience of surround game display."

Will support two PCI-Express x16 graphics cards.
What isn't stated in that paragraph, is one graphics card will be supported at 16x, with the other being supported at 4x.

The Orange PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 16x bandwidth. (Hmmm, looks Red to me)

The Blue PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 4x bandwidth.

Was just bringing up the point, that the mobo will support OnBoard, or Integrated graphics, AND also one of those PCI-Express x16 slots.

"Surround Display"

Means BIOS will allocate an Interrupt Request for the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics, and also allocate an IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 graphics card, for using BOTH at the SAME TIME.

Never have seen this before. Must lead a sheltered life! Lol!
No big deal, however. Two graphics cards are much better.

IF, your Power Supply does NOT have two 6-pin PCI Express power cables, AND you use an adapter power cable, that uses two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, MAKE SURE you use TWO -> 4-pin Peripheral power cables! <-

If not you will burn up the power cable's connector.
You will burn up the power cable connector on the graphics card.
You will burn the PCI Express x16 slot the graphics card is sitting in.

May not happen right away, but I Assure you it Will happen!

4-pin Peripheral power cable,

6-pin PCI Express power cable, and shows adapter power cable I am referring to,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

The Yellow wires are 12 Volt wires. (DC)
Need two for every graphics card.

Do I know if they will both physically fit? No.
You have the motherboard, and the two graphics cards, though.

Is nvidia 9600gt graphic card compatible with asus p5rd2vm motherboard


Yes.

1) The Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard has a PCI Express x16 slot.

The Nvidia 9600GT uses a PCI Express x16 slot.


2) The PCI Express version used on the Nvidia 9600GT is PCI Express 2.0

The PCI Express technology used on the Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard is PCI Express 1.1

The motherboard chipset used on the Asus P5RD2-VM shows us this.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI RD480. (Before AMD bought ATI out)

The ATI RD480 chipset came out September 27, 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges

Scroll down until you come to > RD480 in the left column, then read across.

The PCI Express technology started under another name, then was changed to PCI Express.
The first version was PCI Express 1.0
Then PCI Express 1.1

In 2007 (January 15) the PCI Express 2.0 technology was brought out.


The PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
(With PCI Express 1.0 also, but it depends on the graphics card being used)



In otherwords, a graphics card that has been based upon the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice?
NO.

[ If I had my choice I would run an Nvidia 9800GT instead.
Depends on the price, and availability of the 9600GT I would assume, though.
You may also need a more powerful Power supply.

Intel 945 gccr has pci x16 slot for graphic card or not


The Intel 945GC Express Chipset contains two separate, mutually exclusive graphics
options. Either the integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics controller is used or a PCI
Express x16 add-in card can be used. When a PCI Express x16 add-in card is
installed, the Intel GMA 950 graphics controller is disabled.
The 9500 should work even though it is pci-e 2.0..i would go with a brand like BFG as they offer a lifetime warrantee..

I want some information about Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR 2


If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,

Want to know


Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.

Mark

What can i do to improve my graphics?


Hey katman_k, the reason that i am gessing is because mybe the PCI controllers do not support that high upgrade graphics card or the motherboard processor and unit may not work efficiantly with the graphics card because the computer might not meet the system requirements for the graphics card. I would go down the list and make sure it meets those requirements.
