The best you can fit is an AGP 8X type card. They are difficult to find now, so the prices of decent cards are going up. Your computer is about 3 generations behind, You would get better graphics performance by buying a new motherboard, CPU and memory bundle. It would be cheaper in the long run, as you could then upgrade the graphics card in the future and then upgrade the CPU as well. You can still keep the case and other computer peripherals you already use. But if you want an AGP card look on the Auction sites.

GRAPHICS CARD


http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5S800VM/

I see it is the VM/S version, and not the Asus O.E.M. version above.
My thinking is the motherboard was made for a proprietary computer manufacturer.
Perhaps NEC or Packard Bell.

Using this line of reasoning, it is my contention that the graphics expansion slot is the same, and motherboard chipset; for the VM/S version, as well as the Asus OEM VM version.

Going further...............

Specifications:
Graphics Expansion slot -
AGP and 8X........AGP 8X

Motherboard Chipset:
SiS 661FX - Northbridge chip
SiS 964 - Southbridge chip


http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/chipsets_d/SiS/661FX+964/

So we know the motherboard will support an AGP 8X graphics card.
Another item you need to have knowledge of, is what is the Minimum power requirement; for the particular AGP 8X graphics card you are looking at......

Let's look at some examples,
(They are getting fewer, and fewer; as the graphics card technology has gone to PCI Express.
PCI Express has evolved to the PCI Express 3.0 technology now)

A) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=853908&CatId=2234

Scroll down to - Features
-> Minimum PSU Wattage requirement

(Ignore of you are aware;
PSU = Power Supply Unit
The Power Supply's used in personal computers are SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply)

MINIMUM power wattage requirement for the above AGP 8X graphics card, is 250 Watts.

Something I would like to impart;
Back in the day Power Supply manufacturers 'fudged' the True, Actual maximum wattage rating.

Actual maximum wattage rating, was more like 60 to 70 percent of what was stated.
If we use a 250 Watt PSU from back in the day, as an example; actual maximum rated wattage would be 150 Watts, to 175 Watts.
[Simple equation(?);
250 divided by 10 = 25
25 times 6 = 150
25 times 7 = 175 ]

Point?
DO NOT under power a graphics card!
A) It will not work right, or at all.
B) It will burn;
The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card.
The contact pins in the graphics expansion slot.

Takes a while usually, but when done you can use the motherboard for a Frisbee.

Here is a Power Supply Wattage Calculator,

http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Takes about 2 seconds for the page to fully load.
Need guidance in using it post back in a Comment.

It is the 'Rule of Thumb', to have at least 10 percent more power, than what is required.
Easier on the Power Supply, as it doesn't have to strain to keep up.
I myself would recommend a 350 Watt power supply, at least.

One more thing if I may;
LOAD THE SOFTWARE FIRST!
Load all the software that comes with the graphics card.
It will be on the Installation disk that comes with it.

You will be loading the Drivers, and user interface.
For a graphics card utilizing the ATI (AMD) technology, you will be loading Drivers, and the Catalyst Control Center.
For a graphics card utilizing the Nvidia technology, you will be loading Drivers, and the Nvidia Control Panel.

AFTER doing so, THEN turn the computer off, FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures, and Physically install the graphics card.

Why?
Because when a device is installed on a computer that has Windows on it, Windows will 'break it's neck', to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not already there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic, one-size-fits-all drivers.
This = No
A Driver conflict can result........

Windows: "Which drivers do I use?
These or THESE?"

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
Or Reply, at the end of this solution.

Is the ms 6540 motherboard compatible with the asus p5s800-vm


what u mean compatible? if u mean u want to change your ms 6540 to Asus P5S800-VM, then i tell u it cannot be done.
first thing that u look when to change mainboard is SOCKET type... ms 6540 have socket type 478 and asus p5s800-vm have socket type LGA775. thats mean your old processor cannot be use in asus. socket 478 is older than LGA775.
So if u want to change your mainboard for ASUS P5S800-vm, then u need to change your processor to... about RAM socket and VGA socket, ms 6540 have same type with ASUS P5S800 (DDR400) so u dont need to change your RAM and VGA (if u use external VGA)
hope this useful, regards.

Only the 6600 will work, for the others there is no AGP version. If you want something much more powerful than the 6600 (on par with 9600) then get this one

Please can Anyone help me i Av ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard no Video display,i have try the reset but still,please any help


The ASUS P5S800-VM is an older board so its probable that the onboard graphics have died. The board supports AGP video cards which are still fairly easy to find and not very expensive at all. I always recommend TigerDirect for any computer parts, I've used them for 7 years and have never had a single problem. Here is a link for a decent video card your motherboard can use.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5274433&CatId=2234

If you search AGP video cards you will find plenty you can use. Having the onboard graphics repaired (if even possible) would cost more than the computer would be worth.

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard integrated RTL 8100 C LAN Card coul'd not be installed . driver from asus site doesn't match the card , driver from realtek site also .how can i find a right driver


I know Asus motherboards well. The P5S800-VM motherboard uses, Realtek 100/10 Mbps Ethernet Controller. (Its not a card) it is intergrated into the motherboard. Download and install, Realtek RTL8100C Ethernet Device Driver V5.505.1004.2002 directly from Asus. Open the link provided below;
http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=ZcyLktAZjt2bXqgs&content=specifications
Open the dropdown menu and click on you're operating system. There you will see a list of drivers. Click the + sign next to word LAN. You'll see the driver for RTL8100C. Download and install.

ASUS COMPUTER PROBLEM


Hello owners of the Asus P5S800-VM motherboard. This Asus board uses an integrated PCI graphics card. (That means it’s built into the board, you can not see it. Its part of the north bridge SiS661FX chipset). Everyone will need their manual so you can follow my instructions. If you no longer have your manual, please click on the ASUS P5S800-VM link below. A pop-up windows will open & you will need to choose the operating system from the dropdown menu. Than click Search.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5S800-VM&SLanguage=en-us
This downloadable manual can only be read with Adobe reader software. If you need Adobe's software, you can download it from Adobe at this next link: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Shut down your systems; unplug the power cord from the PC's power supply. Open your case.
Please remove the AGP video card from the board; if any have one has one installed. (If you do not you will not receive display on your monitor. Once removed you now need to clear the bios/cmos.
On the board find the cmos/bios jumper as shown on page 1-21. Move the jumper to cover pins 2 & 3, count to 15 & move the jumper back to pins 1 & 2. One this is done. Close your case. Plug the power cord back into the power supply. Now we need to enter into the bios. Boot your PC & press the Delete key on your keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will open. Read the instructions at the bottom of the menu. This will show you how to move about while in the bios using your keyboard. (Can not use the mouse in here). Go to the title Advanced. Open "Chipset" page
2-17. See manual section 2.4.3 page 2-20. Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [AGP]
Save the bios & exit it. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the case power on /off button until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Open your case. Insert your AGP card. Make sure it is seated evenly & fully. Re-check all power connections & data connections before closing the case. Re-connect the power cord to the power supply. Boot your PC. You should have display. Install your graphics cards software. Check windows for any updates.
Life should be good. The ASUS P5S800-VM can only use a 1.5volt AGP card & nothing else. Check the manual for your AGP card & make sure it is 1.5v compatible. If its voltage is higher you will not receive display. This next link will show what a 1.5v graphics card looks like. Notice the copper contacts & its separation. Turn to manual page 1-20 for another 1.5v card with more than two separations.

Good luck everyone!
