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 @ http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
Hi there try going into the bios settings and disable the on board graphics and change it to PCI or PCI Express. You may have to plug the monitor into the on-board VGA port to do this, once done shut the computer down and change graphics port, then restart the pc, your problem should now be solved
Hi jlg371, Did you know that Asus warrants their boards for three years? Why buy a new board when you can have yours' replaced by Asus! While inside your case, look at the parallel port. There is a white sticker there. Write down the information onto a piece of paper. Call Asus tech at: 1-812-282-2787 M-F 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST. It’s best to call in the morning. Get a case number from Asus. The way this works is you'll strip the board including the CPU. Box it & ship it back to Asus. You pay to ship it to Asus. (Signature Requested)! Asus pays to ship back to you. Expect 2 weeks, 10 working days (Min) to pass before Asus ships your MB back to you.
Hi shuter. Your Asus P5RD1-VM has an integrated video adapter ATI® Radeon 9600 GPU. You need to enter your bios & change the video start up order. Pg.2-22 in your manual.

Boot Graphics Adapter Priority [PEG/IGD]
Save & exit. Check system at boot up for correct memory count.
