I see no reason why you couldn't. The motherboard supports the CPU's socket, and the GTX 660 isn't that powerful of a card. So long as you have a sufficient power supply (no less than 500 watts) you'll I see no reason why you couldn't.

I7 950 compatibility


The basic answer is no because the motherboard only accepts the socket LGA 2011 while the Intel i7-950 is a LGA 1366 socket.

No the mobo is compatible with the Power Supply, and GPU.
And vice-versa.

Mainboard fan???????
You mean the Processor (CPU) fan?

I'm guessing I guess, because computer case fans aren't on the motherboard/mainboard/mobo.
(MOtherBOard)

You're getting power to the mobo, but the question is how much?

1) IF ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

http://206.108.48.60/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=363&tab=1

The mobo will support Intel Core2 Quad-Core processors. Depending on which one, you may be talking about Up To 105 Watts of power,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Quad-Core_Desktop_processors

This is why LED's can light, and fans may spin, but the Processor isn't getting enough power, so the computer will not turn on. (Processor isn't turning on)

Why?

1) Just because that Power Supply is new, doesn't mean it is good.
Sometimes you get a bad one. Test the three main voltages coming out, with a multimeter set to DC Voltage.

Need guidance post back in a Comment.
(An economical multimeter can be purchased, for as little as $8 to $12. I have seen cheaper. Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example )

2) You don't have the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugged in.
Goes to the white square 4-socket hole connector, to the left top corner of the Processor socket.
(Motherboard installed in computer case)

3) REQUIRES -> TWO 6-pin PCI-Express power cables, for the Nvidia GTX560Ti graphics card.

The Antec HCG750 PSU has 4 of them, so no problem there, IF you have two of them plugged into the graphics card.

Both connectors of the 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable's connector, need to be used. Biostar mobo requires a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Post back in a Comment as to power cables plugged in, and DC Voltage test on PSU.

This is my system, -K10N780SLIX3 wifi Mobo -Gtx 260 Evga card -amd phenom II X4 3.4Ghz -6gb ram -1tb WD sata HDD -1000watt power supply. And I can not get a display anymore but it starts up fine, no beep...


swapping out parts, try with different power supply pull the ram reseat it maybe one at time. different memory slots. change one part at a time with good working part, never assume any part is good.

Suggest Compatible Graphics Card for my D101GGC Motherboard m/c.


that board uses a pcix vid card go here and select any of these or buy one from where ever you want. make sure it is a pci express (pcix) card not a pcix 2.0 your mobo does not support the 2.0 cards.

a little advise if you want to paly serious games you will want at LEAST a geforce 6800 or gretaer card. an excellent gaming card for the money is a 9800 gtx about $100 or so look here:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?keywords=9800+gtx
you do not need the 3d cards they are expensive just look at #3 in that list. a good card for decent price. i personally use a xfx 9800 gtx to game with. no problems and most games can have the grphics turned right up. where you will run into trouble is with your single core pntium 3.2. that will limit how much you can turn everything up as some of the graphics options for games are controlled by the processor believe it or not. but still i would get a 9800 gtx if it were my system

Is the msi 650i mobo compatible w/ the 260 gtx sc vid card ?


your gpu might of overheated and burned out, you might want to flip the computer over,, and right next to the RAM there is like some type of card, which is your GPU, you might want to look into pulling it and replacing that.....

another way of doing this that might work is connect the laptop to another COMPUTER Monitor, and see if anything is displayed if nothing is displayed it might be b/c your GPU did burn out....

i hope this helps please let me know what happens...

Looking for a compatible processor for this mobo


It is impossible to fry a motherboard by using the wrong processor, the board simply won't post. You can use a chart at the ECS website, your motherboard is a Socket A type. Looks like the fastest processor that they have tested is a Athlon XP 3000+.

Nvidia geforce 9500 gt gpu work on asus p5n73-am


Hi!

Nahh...you 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:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_9500gt_us.html

And here are the spec for that mobo:

Good luck

Stream Processors


The difference would be a pretty sustantial jump in performance with more SP's.

They are essentially data pipelines that allow the gpu to perform "parallel" computing. Meaning the gpu can handle many instructions at once. It is what makes gpu's so much more powerful than even a top of the line cpu of today. An example I can give is this: I have a Core i7 920 running at 3.4 Ghz. It has 4 physical cores, as well as hyperthreading, which creates another 4 virtual cores. So 8 cores means 8 threads. I also have a GTX-260 with a speed of only 626 Mhz, not Ghz. That gpu has 216 SP's. When I run Folding at home, I give both the cpu and gpu the same size work unit, and I start them at the same time. The gpu will finish 6 work units in the time it takes the cpu to finish one work unit, which is about 12 hours. Thanks to all the sp's on the gpu, it easily mops the floor with the cpu.
