How to install Pci-e 16x in a pci slot


Do not put a PCI-e card in a PCI slot. It will not fit and the card won't work. The PCI card has 58 or 60 pins on each side with the slot (62 pins would be present if not for the key notches for alignment). PCIe 16x cards have 32 pins.

There are adapters to put a PCI card in a PCIe 1x slot (will fit any PCIe slot) or a PCIe1x card in a PCI slot. See http://www.amfeltec.com/index.php for a sample of the adapters. For the PCIe 16x cards, you need a new motherboard.

If you are placing a PCI-e 16x card in a PCIe 16x slot or a PCI card in a PCI slot, then open the side of your case. Locate the matching slot (remove the current card) or an empty slot depending on your motherboard. Depending on the case, you may need to remove a screw to remove the old card. Wiggle the card straight up to remove it. If you are putting in a new card, you will need to remove the cover from the slot. (For some larger PCIe 16x cards, you need to remove the adjacent slot cover as well.) Some covers just pull straight up or pry a lever up and then pull; for others, you will need to use a screwdriver to break the cover out. Make sure there is sufficient room near the slot for the card. (You may need to move other cards around.)

Then line up the card so that the back of the card will fit into the opening and the contacts on the bottom of the card are above the center of the slot. Firmly press the card down into the slot without changing the alignment. You may need to wiggle it (press down on the back and front, alternatingly). Then make sure the card is fully seated. Attach the addtional power cord from your power supply, if needed for a PCIe 16x card.

Close your case. Then if this is a new video card, turn on the computer and enter the BIOS (press F1, F2, F10, Esc depending on the machine). Disable the on-board video. Then reboot the computer and load the drivers you need for the card.

I hope this helps.

You are right,you can not make that work.You need either dvi or vga,on both monitors.You can not mix them,sorry.Check for an empty pci or pcie slot and add another video card.

Hi, I have Intel DG965SS MOTHER BOARD and wanted to add a video card , how can I know what video card can I use ?


Hi yair_osman,
Install PCI Express [Graphics / Video Card]
You can install {Any Type} of PCI Express Card.
It 'must be a [16x PCIe] card!" the "lowercase" (e) = Express.
Important!: It "must fix the {Form Factor} of your Desktop!"
Meaning: "The "Dimensions" in (inches)
Go to the "Website" below.
Its for your Desktop "Assembly Guide"

This is an example of a PCI Express Card:
Galaxy 43GGS8HX3SPZ
GeForce GT 430 Video Card
Price: $69.99

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

I have the Board ASUS P5VDC-MX. And I wonder that there is no pci-e slot, but in the information there is written:"this board is pci-e (16x) ready".... is it right ? Can i use a pci-e (16x) video...


No, you can't use a PCIe x16 card in any of the slots on the P5VDC-MX board. A PCIe x16 card can't fit into the PCIe x1 slot. Attempting to force a PCIe x16 card into the PCIe X1 slot will break the card or bend the pins. A PCIe x1 card will work in a PCIe x4, x8 or x16 slot, though. Similarly, the AGP and PCI slots are not compatible with the PCIe x16 card design.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I need help choosing a video card - part 2


PCI is the older, slower format, PCIe is newer and faster, but your system MUST support PCIe or it won't work.
So easy option is to find if your system supports PCIe and then get whichever is suitable.

Yes it does seem like the Mother Board might not take the video card, but it will. The memory slots are going to be very close to the video card, but if you look at the two products (mobo and video card) you'll see that the video cards PCIe insert fin is on one side of the mammoth card, and there is plenty of room below the PCIe slot on the board to accompany this video card. What you might want to do is just make sure you have the proper PSU wattage to handle that killer card.

HELP FINDING A CARD TO FIT MY PCI SLOT


It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1559&Nav=|c:1558|&Sort=0&Recs=10
Please list the model number of your Dell & I can tell you exactly what video card you need.
please vote... I'll check back in an hour or two.
