Question about ASUS P5GL-MX Motherboard
I have an asus p5gl-mx motherboard with a pci-e16 slot, does this mean all graphics card with pci-e16 compatibility can be used? I know for cpu even though the slot is the same many newer cpus with more than one core cant be used and i was wondering if that was the case for the gfx card too. If not could someone recommend a cheap one to buy at newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%201069609641&bop=And&Order=RATING# that would go nicely with my current rig, 2.66 GHz oced to 3.05 and 1.5 gb of ram, thanks.
If you are running Windows then before you install any hardware, check your make and model against the Windows Hardware Compatibility List. Simply Google Windows Hardware Compatibility List and then look for your make and model. If it shows up then it means that Microsoft has tested it and guarantees it will work. If its not on the list, it doesn't mean it won't work, it just means the company whom made the card did not submit it to Microsoft for testing. You can compare anything you may buy against the list also. So to answer your question, no, just cause it says PCI EXPRESS x16 it does not mean it will work with your chipset and operating system. You must check Microsoft website first.

You can use any PCI-E graphics card in this slot. This motherboard is limited to x4 on this slot though. Any board will FIT, but they will be running four times slower.
