MotherBoard and Graphics card compatibility

I got a 741gx-m ECS motherboard and have an AGP Egeforce 7600GT graphics card that i got as a gift and I'm concerned wether or not they are compatible since the AGP slot is pretty close to the audio plugs.

Is GF4 Mx440 agp8x support P4s5mg/gl motherboard?


The ECS P4S5MG/GL+ motherboard only supports AGP 4X graphics cards,

AGP 8X graphics cards use .08 Volts (DC)

AGP 4X graphics cards use 1.5 Volts (DC)

Use a graphics card that is AGP 4X/8X.

What is the fastest AGP card i can install on the 741GX-M motherboard with a 1 x AGP 8X/4X slot. Shopping around. Using it for games so i searching for the ultimate AGP card for this board. thanks in...

Hi, it should be the nvidia gtx 400 series
these cards are used by gamers.
But they are difficult to find as new.
Most video cards today are socket PCI-E and
it does not fit your mainboard.

You can maybe look for a used one.

Will a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 video card work on a P4B533-E motherboard?

HI Lau_kua08,

First off, your motherboard is a AGP 4x slot, and the Card is a AGP 8X card. However, NVIDIA based graphic cards which support AGP 8x mode (Accelerated Graphics Port) follow the AGP 3.0 specification. The AGP 3.0 specification retains backwards compatibility with older AGP 4x technology. All NVIDIA Geforce and Quadro GPU's which support AGP 8x mode are downwards compatible with AGP 4x motherboards. When a graphics card which operates at AGP 8x mode is installed on a motherboard which only supports up to AGP 4x mode, the card will automatically switch to AGP 4x operation.

So, yes it will work.

Good Luck,

I have p5vdc-mx and id like to add a more powerful gaming card

The best graphics cards you can run on this board by experience is the Ati sapphire hd 3850 Radeon 512ram, or the next best card I personally had was the geforce xfx 7600gt 256 ddr3 ram, this card was a really good performer.

If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.

All AGP based cards are backwards compatible, so an 8x card should operate at 4x 2x and 1x

however what is important is the voltage of your slot, you can tell by looking at the slot itself,  the AGP slot may have a partition either 1/3 or 2/3rds down the slot, or may have no partition at all,

this slot partition is to prevent you from inserting a card of the wrong voltage.

If there is no partition in the AGP slot then the slot has a switchable voltage, and will automatically switch to the appropriate voltage, (on request from the graphics card AUTOMATIC)


so all you need to check is that the graphics card you buy has slots on the AGP interface that accomodate those on your board


according to the manual

This board has a 4x AGP slot

Compatible AGP at 16x?

After a brief check of motherboard specs, what I see is, the 7600GT card will run at 16x in the 16x slot, but if you have TWO SLI cards they both run at 8X. Makes sense. Unless there is a public outcry concerning this, I'd suspect the info you have is a bit off. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
