Ask them?

first off only Asus.com knows this, ask them,
reasons is.?
1: the BIOS must be updated first, to use other CPU (fact)
2: after the update there is a new qualified, CPU list by ASUS. QVL
3: the motherboard, electronics must like it too (bridge chips)
4: TPD rules (q8400 is 95watts)
now you know the rules 4.
so ask them, there are also MOBO version too, that can get in the way, v1, and v2 motherboard.


page 1. not listedfor quad.
LGA775 socket for Intel® Core™2 Duo/Pentium D/Pentium 4/Celeron D
so why not read the asus support page first (1st google hit)

https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5SD2VM/HelpDesk_CPU/
only the maker knows this due to many BIOS versions.

Shows bios v510 up does. clear as day.

    the huge problem with this bad mobo is
    windows 10 does not like PCs with
    SIS 672
    SIS 968 chips.

    no support now.\
    the last full set of drivers for this 12 year old mobo is XP.

SOURCE: can i put nVIDIA geforce 8600 on my p5sd2-vm

Yes, your Asus motherboard will support the Nvidia GeForce 8600 PCI-Express graphics card.
However one thing you should consider. The 8600 card is SLI compatible but the motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot.
You will also need to make some changes in your bios.
In order to help you configure your system for a PCI-E graphics follow these steps.
1. Uninstall your current display driver software through windows control panel. Windows may ask you to restart your system, do not restart. Shut windows down which will shut off the system.
2. Unplug the power cable from the system & open your case.
3. Install your 8600 card. (Double check it is installed correctly & if needed has the extra power cord connected to the card.
4. Re-connect the power cord.
5. During boot up enter the bios by pressing the Delete key every couple seconds.
6. Once in the bios click the Advanced tab, see top of page 2-19 in your manual.
7. Than open Onboard Device Configuration
Open North Bridge Configuration, see page 2-22
Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [PCI-E]
Change Internal VGA to [Disable]
Change Share Memory Size to [Disable]

8. Save Bios changes & exit. Your system will auto restart.
Once windows has finished loading install the 8600 driver software & directX 10.0. You can also go to nVidia & download the latest software driver @
