Hi! can use that gpu with that mobo, but i wouldent recomend it. The GPU - Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard, and that mobo dosent have that. It might work but you cant use the full power of that gpu on that mobo. And beside that, that gpu is bigger then the mobo itself
I sugest you to buy another mobo, the gpu you looking at is a good one but your mobo isent that good.

Here is the spec for the GPU:

And here are the spec for that mobo:

Good luck

Change graphics card vostro 1710

Some laptops do have a graphics card that is mounted to the motherboard, with it's gold plated contact pins.
The pins slide into an expansion slot on a circuit board, that mounts to the motherboard.

Removable, therefore deemed may be upgradable.

Most however are like Chris stated, and are mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.

Scroll down, click on the Red ->
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video. (5 minutes)

Shows you the IR 650 BGA Rework Station at work, but more importantly shows you the BGA surface mount; Solder Balls, and Copper Pads.

IF, your Dell uses Integrated Graphics, the motherboard chipset is an Intel GM965 chipset,

Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics.

Means the G.P.U. is integrated in the Intel GM965 motherboard chipset.

Nope. No upgrading of that baby.

IF, your motherboard chipset is an Intel PM965 chipset, it uses Discreet Graphics through a PCI Express bus,

Means the laptop comes with an Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics chipset,

Here we can see the Dell Vostro 1700 series of Notebook PC's, uses a separate graphics (Video) card, (IF your laptop came with this option)

The green circuit board of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M, you can barely see.
The aluminum metal plate on top of it, is attached to the copper Cooling Tube, then to the finned rectangular Heatsink.

[Heat is drawn from the graphics chipset {GPU} on the graphics card, to the large aluminum metal plate. The plate absorbs the heat, then transfers the heat to the copper Cooling Tube.

The Cooling Tube is a slightly flattened copper pipe, sealed on both ends, and filled with Nitrogen gas.
The Cooling Tube absorbs the heat from the plate, then transfers the heat up to the finned rectangular Heatsink.

The finned Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with it's thin fins. Air flow from the Fan Assembly, helps carry away heat from the fins of the finned Heatsink ]

This is what the Nvidia GeForce 8600M looks like, not attached to the cooling assembly,

You can see plainly that this is a graphics/video card.
Four mounting holes, and gold plated contact pins on the bottom.

The actual term is graphics ADAPTER card. The Brownish/Red square you see in the middle/bottom, is the graphics chipset.

[ The actual G.P.U. or Graphics Processing Unit, is the black chipset in the middle of that brownish/red square, has Nvidia in white on it, and white characters on the bottom -
X's used because I can't read it.
The brownish/red square around the GPU is a small circuit board.

ALL GPU's have to have a small circuit board, in order to mount to the motherboard, or a graphics adapter card. Also for electrically connecting the GPU to a motherboard, or graphics adapter card.

GPU, ]

In conclusion;
1) Depends on what Intel motherboard chipset you have, right off the bat.
Intel GM965 = No
Intel PM965 = Maybe

2) Intel PM965? Then your laptop should have the above Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT, with graphics adapter card, and cooling assembly.

2A) Does that mean you can change the GeForce 8600M GT?
Maybe. You need a BGA Rework machine, and better Nvidia GeForce graphics chipset. You're talking Ka-Ching here. $$$$$$$$$$

Probably have to stay within the same Fabrication Technology in nm.
(nm = NanoMeter. 1 Billionth of a Meter)
The 8600M GT is 80nm fab technology.
So is the 8700M GT.
When you get to the 8800M GTS, it changes to 65nm.

That's the architectural size. Doesn't state all the technological features that changed with it. (80nm to 65nm)

Means your BIOS program probably won't handle it, and doubt there is a BIOS upgrade for it.

3) Better graphics adapter card, and graphics chipset?
Again, that IMHO would only be an Nvidia GeForce 8700M GT, and NOT worth the trouble, believe me.

So that's it? No chance of upgrading your graphics? No, not so.

I have: dg31pr core2duo 2giga memory kingston 320hd nvidia geforce 9500 gt 512 Problem: When starts operational system (Vista or 7),sometimes the video do not open. Bios in Auto or pci Express

Suggest you test your geforce 9500 GT in another system or try another PCI-Express video card. Try cleaning the contacts of your 9500 GT with alcohol, allow it to dry. Do not touch the contacts with your fingers after cleaning. If your onboard graphics functions correctly than it may be the 9500 that has a problem.

Happy holidays!

Will a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 video card work on a P4B533-E motherboard?

HI Lau_kua08,

First off, your motherboard is a AGP 4x slot, and the Card is a AGP 8X card. However, NVIDIA based graphic cards which support AGP 8x mode (Accelerated Graphics Port) follow the AGP 3.0 specification. The AGP 3.0 specification retains backwards compatibility with older AGP 4x technology. All NVIDIA Geforce and Quadro GPU's which support AGP 8x mode are downwards compatible with AGP 4x motherboards. When a graphics card which operates at AGP 8x mode is installed on a motherboard which only supports up to AGP 4x mode, the card will automatically switch to AGP 4x operation.

So, yes it will work.

Good Luck,

Asus P5GZ-mx compatible graphics cards

Basically, any graphics card is capable of being compatible with this motherboard. I had some difficulties for a while until I figured out you have to MANUALLY set it to use your PCIE 2.0 GPU output.
How to do this is to set your jumpers to external output only. First thing you'll want to do is update the BIOS on the motherboard (Which you can do by getting "Asus-Update". Find it on google, easy to use, just make sure your computer doesn't crash during the BIOS flashing.
Afterwards, set the jumpers to use your PCIE-2.0 slot. Took me a little while to figure this out, and it's a little hard to explain.
Above your PCIE-2.0 slot there are 5 little blue 'plastic-like' things. Those are your jumpers. Take them out and insert them HORIZONTALLY as such:
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ]
Basically, make sure the jumper things are connecting the little drawing there. They HAVE to be horizontally inserted, otherwise this WILL NOT WORK. Just plug in your monitor to the graphics card's output, and you're good to go. Hopefully it works for you.

Compatible video cards

This motherboard has an 8x AGP slot. So any 8X AGP graphic cards will suit this mobo. As your local reseller for any 8x AGP based graphic cards from ATI or Nvidia.
