Re: pci slots

Try to check it out on "". Search for AGP or Accelerated Graphics Port. There are the advantages of an AGP over PCI.

Re: pci slots

Hi, if you were to use something like the GEFORCE FX 5200
graphics card, this would work OK for most low level games. However if you wish to play the top end games you would need to upgrade either your motherboard to one with an AGP slot or better still one with 2 PCI-E slots.

I want to use a better vga but it isnt any port

Without a VGA port, you can't use a VGA card, pretty simple stuff.

If you want to add a video card, you will need to get a PCI video card (NOT PCI-E!) There are a number of them out there, and pretty much anything made in the last 3 to 4 years will be better than the on-board video...

About the size of onboard graphic

Onboard-Video: Intel GMA 3100 Graphics Controller, w/ 256MB Shared Memory
Video Slots: 1x PCI-Express x16 Slot
source: Note: I quickly checked Asus's website and the manual (
) but it didn't appear to give a direct answer.

Also note that even if the motherboard supports both onboard+PCI-E, G31(GMA3100) graphics wouldn't help much at all, trust me. You'll want to buy a new PCI-E card if you plan on doing any gaming. Not knowing what game(s) you plan to play, your budget, and what processor you have makes it tough to suggest an exact video card. So, check out this site to select the best card for your budget and game play:

You can definitely get a real good card for under $100. Perhaps a Radeon HD 4850. Lastly, I highly recommend you buy from

I have a enbuild graphics card i cant play games . while installing it does not support.It shows error

Many of the onboard graphics solutions are not able to handle a majority of the popular games on the market today. Motherboard manufactures know this and so don't put too much thought into upgrading the onboard solutions, being that a great majority of avid gamers would by a graphics card anyway.

My first thought is to buy yourself a graphics card. You probably wont need anything overly special (although I am not sure of how much you may play games) but for decent beginner cards, they run you anywhere from $20-$80 these days. For a little more say ~$100, you can get yourself a decent card that can play most games on the market today. However, do take in mind what your motherboard can actually handle as far as slots go (PCI, AGP, PCI-E).

Graphics card compatibility

That mobo is here"

It says it has a PCIe x16 slot, so really good graphics cards running on PCIe x16 will work on it.

This is a list of the PCI express x16 cards you can buy:

Generally the more they cost the better the performance but that is another story =)

If you wanna to hit me up with your full PC specs of CPU, RAM, Windows version, etc, i could recommend cards for certain games.

It also has PCI so older and less powerful PCI cards can likely be used.

I want to play an high graphic games on my computer Which is Intel D865GVHZ and do not have avg slot on it can I play the high graphics on PCI graphic card

In today's generation the PCI Express Slot are used for graphic card and it is available in many motherboards.

It is faster than the AGP Slot and PCI Slot.

In your machine, if you want to play higher games than you use that AGP slot because it is faster than the normal PCI Slot.
To play higher games you need an at least 2 GB of RAM.

My suggestion is that you just upgrade your system with latest motherboard and PCI Express Graphic Card that will play your all games very smoothly.

About graphics card slot..

The board has a pci express port on it. You can install any video card which uses the PCI-E x16 interface. Almost all new video cards use this interface.

Your board also has an onboard video card (ATI x300 model). You don't actually need a graphics card unless you want the better performance for games.

MSI k8ngm2-h mobo doesn't recognize PCI-E slot anymore!

Just a suggestion for you to try.
This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not.
The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express.
Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit.
Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard

The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
