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.

SOURCE: Graphic card compatability

Usually the manufacturer's site will have some sort of list, but really, you can generally figure it out for yourself. First, find out what kind of graphics card slot your motherboard has. If it is relatively new, it will probably have PCIe (other options are AGP or just PCI). Next, find out how much power the card you want will draw, and figure out if your Power Supply Unit (PSU) will have enough juice to run it. If you have a card in mind, just post a link to the card, and one to your system (or if you built it yourself, to the site for your motherboard and PSU), and I'll do the math :)

But honestly, short of slot type and power supply, there isn't a whole lot that will actually prevent you from choosing whichever card you want.

SOURCE: Graphics Card Compatibility with Asus M2A-MX motherboard

Hi Anli!

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.

Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.

Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.

Good luck with your new card M8!

please take a moment and rate my answer

SOURCE: 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.

Graphics


Hi,
This board has a built in Integrated Intel Extereme Graphic 2 supports up to 64MB of video memory.  IF you are trying to upgrade it, you need a special kind of card.  It has a AGR (Advanced Graphics Riser) slot, which will only support compatible AGP VGA cards. What I suggest is to go to MSI's Hardware compatiblity  http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=&cat3_no=∏_no=190   go to the bottom of the page to download the chart.
Good Luck!

MSI K9N4 SLI-F / Vid Card question


Hi, for the best graphics always go for dual graphic cards. This is the best way to obtain realistic 3D effects. The onboard audio chips is every bit as good as stated, MSI systems are equal to the best but at a lower price. The only change I can see that you need to make is to install a better power supply. A minimum 500w is needed with your system and if your budget allows then anthing up to 600w. Have fun with your games. Regards mistyman
