That card is a PCI EXPRESS. Not the same as a PCI. Definetely wont work in your ISA either. PCI Express came out a few years ago and is a faster interface than PCI. Hope you can get your money back or exchange it for a PCI. Please remember to rate me if this fixedYa. Thanks.

Will nvidia geforce 210 1gb graphics card work on mercury p4vm800m7 motherboard???


No. The motherboard only supports up to AGP-8X based video cards and the GeForce 210 is a PCIe 2.0. The slots are completely different. There is no slot on the board that will fit that video card.

See links below for data:

Does the Sapphire card need to fit perfectly in all the slots on my motherboard


Hello
The Video card will only fit in the pci express slot on your motherboard.

Usually there is a small latch that needs to be pulled down,then insert the card then pull latch up.

Yes it does seem like the Mother Board might not take the video card, but it will. The memory slots are going to be very close to the video card, but if you look at the two products (mobo and video card) you'll see that the video cards PCIe insert fin is on one side of the mammoth card, and there is plenty of room below the PCIe slot on the board to accompany this video card. What you might want to do is just make sure you have the proper PSU wattage to handle that killer card.

PCI Graphic card for Tomb Raider underworld


Hi,
There are PCI slots in your Machine and one or two PCI-Express slots (one of which might be very short). Usually the Graphics PCI-Express slot is the one on top (right below the CPU).
In order to play Tombraider at a decent speed, you should consider buying a Graphicscard for about 100-120$ going to low will result in low framerates, going to high is not worth the money since graphics cards are becoming obsolete in a matter of 2 years or so...

so get yourself a decent PCE-E GraphicsCard and youll be all set!
Hope this was understandable =)

Ack graphics card wont fit in any input slots


the adapter u are using is pci express and the dell dimension 9100 are not compatible.. try returning it for either a pci (usually the white slot) or AGP which in most cases is brown.. the AGP will be your best performance.. if return is not an option.. then it seems that a new pc is in your best interest.

HELP FINDING A CARD TO FIT MY PCI SLOT


It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.

Please list the model number of your Dell & I can tell you exactly what video card you need.
please vote... I'll check back in an hour or two.
