Re: upgrade P5RD1-VM motherboard to the gaming PC

Your pc is not for gaming right now because you are using Intel Pentuim 4 Mother board and CPU. Amd Athlon is best for gaming. I have a AMD Athlon 4200+ X2 with 4gb Ram and Nvidia 6800 256mb OC. to upgrade your computer to a gaming pc. you will need to switch your motherboard and cpu for best performance on games. in order to do that, you might need a different case for your new motherboard. because the one you have might not be right for the AMD Athlon motherboard unless you have a custom made computer. other than that everything is set for you. if you have less than 1gb ram you might want to add more. because the games they are coming with right now is 1gb minimum or required.

i hope that answers your question.
Thank You

I have the same problem

Dear! If monitor showes power but not showes display its means that monitor requires heat and it very better if you can give sun-rays. I assure your monitor will work if you do that for 4 hours. Check your monitor sepreatly with another system or computer if it works that means your VGA card not supported so you should change your VGA card but first check your monitor.
Thank You

I installed windows 7 os and my mother board drivers not support that mother board is asus p5rd1-vm. pentium 4 processor 512 ram

Come back on XP or Vista but XP works better.There is no driver for W7 yet.Motherboards manufacturers will provide drivers for W7 when Microsoft will announce that the system(W7) is ready to be sell....Windows 7 is still beta! If Microsoft still provide "UP DATE" for XP why you want to install other OS?
