Nvidia geforce g210


1.5.1 Graphics Subsystem
The board contains two separate, mutually exclusive graphics options. Either the integrated
graphics processor (contained within the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Northbridge) is used, or a PCI
Express x16 add-in card can be used. When a PCI Express x16 add-in card is installed, the ATI
Radeon Xpress 200 Northbridge graphics controller is disabled.

Does asus p5n73 am mother board support asus ati radeon HD 6450 graphic card? my smps is 450 watt also let me know which graphic card support my mother board


your power supply is at the edge, so i'd suggest going for 650W power supply. your mainboard will support the graphics card but as i said - you need better PSU

I have dell gx 260 with 2.4 ghz nd 1gb ddr ram with nvidia geforce fx 5200 can u name any graphics card which will be gud enough than geforce 5200...nd agp plz..


You need an AGP 8X graphics card for one.

AMD ATI Radeon series:


1) Better: XFX Radeon HD4650

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4914257&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (OR 1024MB) of DDR2 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 600MHz Core Clock
E) 800MHz Memory Clock
F) 55nm process technology



3) Best: HIS HD4670

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6076197&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (Or 1024MB) of DDR3 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 750MHz Core Clock
E) 1600MHz Memory Clock

Likes POWER! Better install a 500 Watt power supply, to keep up with the power needed for this baby!
The GX260 supposedly has a 250 Watt PSU. (Power Supply Unit)
Back in the day this PSU was made, the PSU manufacturer 'fudged' the maximum rated wattage.
Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
175 watts!

The above is just IMHO about graphics card choice.

(I have motherboard's with a PCI Express x16 slot, using the PCI-E 2.0 technology.
I use Nvidia graphics cards)

Can we use a internal graphic card in a mother board in another m


Yes if it has the port for the graphics card it will work with the onboard graphics card just make sure then that your video output is plugged into the ATI radeon and not the onboard..or it will not work correctly. if you have anymore questions just let me know and i will answer them asap.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?


the card you have is a PCI express 16X your board is for PCI express 8X. I think some cards can run at a slower speed but I believe you have the wrong card for your board
