Question about Intel D101GGC Motherboard

1 Answer

I need help choosing a video card.

I have a Intel D101ggc Motherboard and I am thinking of buying a video card. I know I have 1 PCI Express x16, 1 PCI Express x1, and 2 PCI Slots, and I don't have an agp slot.
The specs say - Graphics Support: PCI Express x16.
Does that mean I can't get a PCI graphics card because its not supported. And most PCIe video cards are not compapatible because of the memory - the motherboard only supports PC2700,DDR PC3200.
So my questions are - can I use a PCI video card on my motherboard and does not compatible memory with the PCIe video card mean it won't work.

    But can my computer support a PCI Video card?

  • rebel371 May 13, 2009

    So my motherboard can't support PCI video card that has 256mb?

  • rebel371 May 13, 2009

    I didn't buy a video card yet but I went to a store that had a PCI video card that had 256mb. I just one more question what difference does the memory make? is it just to add to the computers overall memory or will the card work better?

  • rebel371 May 13, 2009

    I have 2gb of system memory/ 1gb ram x2, so if I add a video card regardless what memory will it cause problems or can I keep my 2gb memory. Because i saw video cards for ati radeon everything the same but just different memory. Thank.

Hi there.
Any PCI Express card will do as long as its DDR2, DDR3 is not supported by your motherboard.
You have a choice between ATI or Nvidia graphics cards and your system should support up to 1GB of graphics memory.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

    Hi again.
    Yes it can, although you are limited to around 128MB of graphics memory with a standard PCI card so PCI Express is far better.

    Hi.
    If you have already got a PCI video card that has 256MB memory then its quite a rare card as its old technology and your board will support it providing you have the drivers for it.

    Regards

    Hi.
    The video is memory is different to the system memory although it is recommended that you install as much system memory as possible especially if you want to do some gaming.
    If you was to buy a PCI Express card (which is better than PCI) they have their own memory on the card but in some cases they can pinch system memory to make the card run better but overall the system will run a little slower but your graphics will be excellent, for example if you bought a 256MB PCI Express card which supports up to 512MB if you had over 1GB of system memory it would pinch system memory to support 512MB graphics so a stand alone card would be better overall.

    Regards

Can Intel DG41TY Motherboard Suppotrs PCI-- Exress 2.0 Video Cards???


This motherboard has 4 expansion slots and these are -
1. PCI Conventional bus add-in card connector
2. PCI Conventional bus add-in card connector
3. PCI Express x1 connector (this is a short connector)
4. PCI Express x16 connector (this is a long connector)
Use this information and ask the supplier for suitable video cards.
You need to also tell them what video applications you are using eg. games that require high end video cards. These video games also recommend types of video cards suitable for these games.

Hi, I have Intel DG965SS MOTHER BOARD and wanted to add a video card , how can I know what video card can I use ?


Hi yair_osman,
Install PCI Express [Graphics / Video Card]
You can install {Any Type} of PCI Express Card.
It 'must be a [16x PCIe] card!" the "lowercase" (e) = Express.
Important!: It "must fix the {Form Factor} of your Desktop!"
Meaning: "The "Dimensions" in (inches)
Go to the "Website" below.
Its for your Desktop "Assembly Guide"

This is an example of a PCI Express Card:
Galaxy 43GGS8HX3SPZ
GeForce GT 430 Video Card
Price: $69.99

I have a d101ggc intel mother board, with no video signal. it is out of warranty. due to this i plan to install a nvidia agp vanta tnt2 in the slot available. Does this match is possible?


The Intel motherboard D101GGC does not have an AGP video slot on-board. It does however have one PCI-Express x16 slot for faster graphics.
Open manual to page 11. Desktop Board Components. See item D on page 11 and page 12. If you need the manual you can download it from Intel. Open the link provided; http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d101ggc/sb/CS-021718.htm
You'll need Adobe reader installed to view the manual; http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

XFX is one of the few companies that warrant their cards for life.

I am trying to buy a video card for my D101GGC Motherboard. I know my motherboard has a PCI Express x16 1.0 slot so I will get a PCI Express video card. But can I get a PCI Express x16 2.0 card and will it...


Hi,

First, your RAM is already maxxed out and it is only DDR. See:

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=D101GGC

Secondly, PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with 1.0 slots.

The RAM on the graphics card doesn't matter as long as the card is compatible. As far as how much...if you can afford 1GB, great!

ATI or nVidia? That's personal preference. I have had both and was happy with both. Other manufacturers use ATI and nVidia chips and market them under their own name. Galaxy, XFX, EVGA, and others. Here are some mid-range boards from Tiger Direct:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?Lprice=100&Hprice=199.99&Nav=|c:3669|&Sort=0&Recs=10

You don't say how fast your processor is. You may be better off going for a new board or computer.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Can I My motherboard support a PCI video card?


Hi there.
Your motherboard will support both kinds of Video card.
PCI is quite old and is only supported up to 128MB of video memory.
PCI Express is new technology and is by far the best card that you can buy giving you the best graphics experience and can support up to 1GB of graphics memory making it good for gaming.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Upgrade


moz-screenshot-3.jpgmoz-screenshot-4.jpgIt appears that there are two PCI Express slots on the MB, 1-1X and 1-16X. You should be able to put in a PCI Express video card. If you are going to be gaming, pick out one with more memory, but be prepared. More memory equals more money.

Good luck and let me know how it works out.

Tv card & Capture that support intel motherboard dg31pr


The Intel DG31PR motherboard has one PCI-Express x16 slot & two PCI slots. The motherboard also has 1 PCI-Express x1 slot.
You can use any of these slots. I am guessing you are using the PCI-Express x16 as you're primary video display. If you're not using the PCI-Express x16 slot & using the onboard graphics you could use anyone of these PCI-Express x1 capture cards.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=3493&name=PCI-Express-Video-Capture-Cards

For the PCI slot (Two whit in color). Any one of these.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1425&name=PCI-Video-Capture-Devices

Video capture devices include a learning curve. Do not expect to add one of these into you're system without reading the instructions. (I know little of this format). The PCI-E x1 will be faster than the PCI cards.
I hope you found this helpful!

Good Luck!
Mike

Motherboard Intel D101GGC no display


Hello dheyx, your Intel D101GGC board used an intergated ATI Radeon Xpress 200 graphics. If you lost display than you're intergated Radeon has died. Suggest you replace it with a
PCI-E X16 graphics card. The Intel D101GGC board does have an opened X16 PCI-E slot. Do not forget to change the bios video card setting. You want the board to see& load the PCI-E first.
