Question about ASUS P5GL-MX Motherboard

2 Answers

Which graphics card?

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.

No video output. what video cards are compatible?


Hello,

Your MB takes a PCI Express x16 (max. 2GB/s, x4 mode) video card.

Please note the warning in your manual on Page 1-22 about using "Qualified" graphics cards. Here is a link to your manual:

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5GL-MX/e2222_p5gl-mx.pdf

If you are not getting video, have you tried to reinstall the VGA driver? Just a thought. You can get it by typing your model number into the search box on the Asus support site.(Just use P5GL-MX.)

What memory stick and graphic cards to get


Your motherboard has 3 PCI slots. Any card you install can only be a regular PCI card.

The RAM in your motherboard has to be DDR (333 or 400) 184 pin DIMM's.

Here is a link for your motherboard manual:

Layout pic is on page 1-7. Info on your memory is on page 1-15.

Graphics Card Compatibility with Asus M2A-MX motherboard


Hi Anli!

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!
