What is the PCI speed?


I think the question is which pci slots do you have. You have PCI. You do NOT have PCI Express.. to confirm, see picture here:
Conventional PCI

PCI Express Has MUCH smaller connectors and several speeds

PCI Express is not to be confused with PCI-X
A pix will help:

Looking for advice on a video card. Would a radeon hd 5750 run on c51gm motherboard


1) You have a PCI Express x16 expansion slot, for a graphics card.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135010

(Orange)

A) 1GigaByte of graphics memory which is GDDR3. (It is GDDR3, not DDR3; trust me)
B) 800MegaHertz Core Clock
C) 1600MHz Memory Clock
D) API's - DirectX 11
Open GL 4.1
Shader Model 5.0


2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia GeForce 6100 - Northbridge, and an Nvidia nForce 410 - Southbridge.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series_chip_specifications

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Nvidia GeForce 6100/nForce 410, came out 2005.


3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

AGP technology, and PCI Express technology, ARE HIGH-speed graphics.

Using a PCI slot for a graphics card, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high speed graphics.

(As you can see in the Motherboard Diagram, the PCI bus is controlled by the Southbridge chip. The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

Means anything connected to the PCI bus, such as a graphics card in a PCI expansion slot; is handled by the Southbridge chip.
Integrated graphics also )

4) PCI Express came out 2004.
Went from PCI Express 1.0 version to PCI Express 1.1 version.
In 2007 PCI Express went to the 2.0 version. PCI Express 2.0.

Your motherboard, IMHO, uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
This is why I recommend a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology. (For one)

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1
A little iffy if it's PCI Express 1.0

I have seen a lot of problems crop up with users trying to use a graphics card, based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology; on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

That's why I recommended PCI Express 2.0

PCI Express 3.0 is supposed to overcome that, (Use on a mobo with PCI-E 1.1), but I have no real world knowledge, (Hands on), and no input from the 'outside'. (Internet/world)

5) You need at least a 400 Watt power supply. Don't have at least a 400 Watt? Time to move up.

Intel d945gccr will not support vga for windows 7? wher can i get its drivers


I don't see any VGA drivers listed for any of the Windows 7 versions,

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+945+Express+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D945GCCR

Guess they felt the drivers in the O/S (Win7) would support the Intel 945GC chipset, and it's Integrated Graphics. (Intel GMA 950)

Product Guide, (Motherboard manual), download link,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d945gccr/sb/CS-024514.htm

Intel 945GC chipset info,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

IMHO the next course of action to take, would be to buy an economical PCI Express graphics card, and install it in the
PCI Express x16 expansion slot, on the motherboard.

It will have drivers for Win7.

[Driver: A small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Win7 is the O/S, and graphics chipset is the device ]

Something as economical as this example, will work,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2759376&CatId=3585

[NOTE*
The Intel 945GC came out in the first quarter of 2007.
According to what I read, the launch date was the first quarter of 2005.

Don't know what transpired in the meantime. Maybe Intel didn't release it until it had PCI Express 2.0 support.

At any rate..........

PCI Express is a technology.

The first release under the PCI Express name, was the
PCI Express 1.0 version.
Year? 2004.

Next upgrade version was PCI Express 1.1
The version after that was PCI Express 2.0
Year? 2007 (January 15, 2007)

I don't know if the 945GC chipset on your motherboard, uses the
PCI Express 1.1 version, or the PCI Express 2.0 version.

The graphics card is based on the PCI Express 2.0 version.

Does it matter? NO
Why?
Because PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with
PCI Express 1.1

In otherwords the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card WILL work, on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Will you get the full capabilities of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card?
NO

Will you notice?
NO

PCI Express 1.1 technology has a PER lane data rate of 250MegaBytes per Second. (250MB/s)
A transfer rate of 2.5GigaTransfer/s per Second. (250GT/s)

PCI Express 2.0 technology has a per lane data rate of 500MB/s.
A transfer rate of 5.0GT/s ]

Is nvidia 9600gt graphic card compatible with asus p5rd2vm motherboard


Yes.

1) The Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard has a PCI Express x16 slot.

The Nvidia 9600GT uses a PCI Express x16 slot.


2) The PCI Express version used on the Nvidia 9600GT is PCI Express 2.0

The PCI Express technology used on the Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard is PCI Express 1.1

The motherboard chipset used on the Asus P5RD2-VM shows us this.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI RD480. (Before AMD bought ATI out)

The ATI RD480 chipset came out September 27, 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges

Scroll down until you come to > RD480 in the left column, then read across.

The PCI Express technology started under another name, then was changed to PCI Express.
The first version was PCI Express 1.0
Then PCI Express 1.1

In 2007 (January 15) the PCI Express 2.0 technology was brought out.


The PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
(With PCI Express 1.0 also, but it depends on the graphics card being used)



In otherwords, a graphics card that has been based upon the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice?
NO.

[ If I had my choice I would run an Nvidia 9800GT instead.
Depends on the price, and availability of the 9600GT I would assume, though.
You may also need a more powerful Power supply.

Type of video card


The Compaq Presario SR1630NX desktop computer, has a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The Presario SR1630NX came out in 2005.
PCI-Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007.

The Presario SR1630NX uses the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, however.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just won't get the full capability, of a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice?

NO

Upgrading graphics card


This is eMachines Support, and the specifications page for the eMachines C6535 desktop computer,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=C%20Series&model=C6535

Scroll down the list until you come to the Video heading.

You'll see - PCI Express (PCI-E x16) slot available

This means you have a PCI Express x16 graphics slot on the motherboard, and it is open, and available.

You can use a PCI Express graphics card.

Two things I would like to note.

1) You need to check the System Requirements of the PCI Express graphics card you're going to buy, and see if your System Resources are able to support it.

The main thing you need to look for here, is what power is required for the graphics card.

Does your Power Supply have the necessary Wattage?

Not only does your Power Supply have to be able to deliver the necessary power for the computer system resources (Processor, Ram Memory, etc), it also has to be able to deliver enough power for THAT graphics card.

Since eMachines Support doesn't list the power of the Power Supply, I searched online for a Power Supply replacement for the C6535.

Seems the C6535 comes with a 300 Watt power supply.
Problem is, back in the day the C6535 was made, power supply manufacturers were 'Fudging' the true maximum Wattage, that their power supply's were truly able to deliver.

A more realistic figure, is 70 percent of the maximum rated Wattage stated.
This would be 210 Watts.

Therefore, you're going to need a better power supply, to support any of the really decent PCI Express graphics cards out there.

2) PCI Express came out in 2004.
PCI Express is a technology.

The PCI Express technology has gone through three major changes, or upgrades, since it came out.

A) PCI Express 1.0 version
B) PCI Express 1.1 version
C) PCI Express 2.0 version

PCI Express graphics cards now, are made in the PCI Express 2.0 version.

You can use a PCI Express 2.0 graphics card in a computer with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Your computer uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

If you use a PCI Express 2.0 graphics card in a computer with PCI Express 1.1 technology, you won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.

Will you notice?
NO
We haven't begun to fully use all the bandwidth of the PCI Express 1.1 technology yet, much less PCI Express 2.0

(PCI Express 3.0 technology is just around the corner, and getting ready to be used on newer graphic cards. Marketing strategy)

Have any further questions concerning this, please post in a Comment.

Does a Foxconn 633 m02 motherboard have pci express slots?


You have a Foxconn G33M02? then you have PCI express ports, so you'll need to look at pci express video cards to fit on your pci express x16 ports (the long pci-e port, probably blue colored) on your motherboard.
