Since your motherboard has an AGP slot for a graphics card, or alternatively one of the three PCI slots, you will never be able to play current games in high graphical settings. On top of that, AGP and PCI cards are quite expensive nowadays, since they are nearly not used anymore and hard to find in a decent second-hand condition.
Anyhow, instead of spending money on what will probably be a dissappointment in the end, i think it's better to invest in a mid-range system-board with a PCI-Express slot. It may cost a bit more, but you'll be able to play you favorite games in an acceptable graphical environment.

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?


The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

2) PCI-Express:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

Use of agp


The primary advantage of AGP over PCI is that it provides a dedicated pathway between the slot and the processor rather than sharing the PCI bus. In addition to a lack of contention for the bus, the point-to-point connection allows for higher clock speeds. AGP also uses sideband addressing, meaning that the address and data buses are separated so the entire packet does not need to be read to get addressing information. This is done by adding eight extra 8-bit buses which allow the graphics controller to issue new AGP requests and commands at the same time with other AGP data flowing via the main 32 address/data (AD) lines. This results in improved overall AGP data throughput.

In addition, to load a texture, a PCI graphics card must copy it from the system's RAM into the card's framebuffer, whereas an AGP card is capable of reading textures directly from system RAM using the Graphics Address Remapping Table (GART). GART reapportions main memory as needed for texture storage, allowing the graphics card to access them directly.[The maximum amount of system memory available to AGP is defined as the AGP aperture.

Does my d845gvsr motherboard support a 9500GT graphics card?


9500GT Series graphics card uses PCI Express Slot(16X). As for your Mainboard D845GVSR it comes with AGP Slot(4x or 8x). The graphics card slot on your Mainboard AGP will not fit the PCI Express slot for this Nvidia chipset 9500GT Graphics Card. You cannot use the 9500GT Series card for your mainboard.

The highest Nvidia Graphics card that support AGP Slot is the 7300GT Chipset Series.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

AGP graphics adapter is installed only to an AGP slots not on the PCI.pci-mb.jpg slots as shown. You should change your AGP to PCI type graphics adapter.

Hope it works,

Anyway to connect an agp graphics card in a pci/pci express slot


The AGP bus works with a higher frequency, using 66 Mhz instead of 33 Mhz, and uses 64 bits instead of 32 bits. There is no simple way to use an AGP device on a PCI slot, and adapters are not normally available for sale.

Intel D845GRG no video!


HI madpanic_att, there is no jumper for the onboard graphics card,
82845G Graphics Memory Controller. If you add an AGP video card it must be 1.5volt compliant & can only function at a max speed of 4x. The Intel motherboard will automatically detect the AGP card & boot the card. If you no longer have your manual, click on this Intel link & download it; (Bottom of page).
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=824&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
You will need Adobe PDF reader to view the manual.
You can download Adobe for free at this link;
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Look & read page 16, (Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) in manual & PCI Auto Configuration. Bios configuration, see page 53,
(Video Configuration Submenu).
See a list of 4x AGP cards at this next link; http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=318&SRCCODE=WEBGOOVID&cm_mmc_o=7BBTkwCjC-p8ByplCjCabTwyKbywgfCjCmH4L
Remember the AGP graphics card can only run at 1.5volt in your Intel D845GRG board.
Example, here is an AGP card. Notice the separations between the contacts. (This is an 8x card).
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1776106&CatId=318

This next AGP card is 1.5volt, see the contact separations.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4103516&CatId=318
This is also an AGP 1.5v card;
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3570059&CatId=318

If you add a PCI card you will not have to worry about the 1.5volt limit.
Here are some PCI graphics cards; http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=319

Good luck madpanic_att!

Upgrading VIDEO CARD


If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.

AGP card support


Hi, Unfortunately no AGP slot nor PCI-E. The Gigabyte GA-8I845GV motherboard has only 3 Expansion Slots and all of the are PCI (33MHz & PCI 2.2 compliantt). From their website, here's an image of the motherboard http://www.giga-byte.com.tw/FileList/Image/motherboard_productimage_ga-8i845gv_big.jpg It has a built-in IntelĀ® Extreme Graphics Engine (845GV chipset) for video with max of 128 mb shared memory. Should you wish to install an add-on 3rd party PCI video card, Inno3D FX5500 256ddr PCI slot tv-dvi are still available (at least in my location) for an equivalent of about 3.5K INR (80USD+). Hope this gives you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
