Certain motherboard can support more than one video card. For Nvidia motherboards, this is called SLI, for ATI it's called Crossfire. Unfortunately, your motherboard cannot have dual video cards, you would need a SLI or crossfire capable board. Your upgradeability is limited to a single 16x PCIe video card, but as your onboard video card is ATI, you might get lucky and be able to put in another ATI video card, and have them share the video memory.

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:

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!!

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!!

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.

Need help disableing onboard video, and installing PCIe video card.


Hi rebelel1271, I do have the manual for you're Intel motherboard. You can have it as well. Click on the link below to download you're manual. document.write("D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals") D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals
Intel states you do not need to make any bios changes when you add a PCI-Express video card. See this on page 17, PCI and PCI Express Auto Configuration. Before installing you're PCI-E video card, open windows controll panel. Than open add/remove programs. Look for the driver software for you're onboard ATI Radeon X200. Uninstall that software. (If listed). Close all opened windows & shut down windows. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case. Install you're new ATI Radeon X800 PCI-E video card. Double check all internal connections, (In case you may have bumped loose any cables). You're X800 may also have a 3-pin or 4-pin male power connector built on the card. If so, plug power to the X800.

A little information. Once you're PCI-E has been installed. You're system memory will increase.

Good Luck!

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.
