Ok from experience I have run lots and tried many cards on my asus p5vdc-mx,
The two best perfoming cards for this board is a xfx geforce 7600gt with 256 ddr3 ram, and the ati radeon sapphire hd 3850, this card needs a 450 watt power supply or better, your asus board has onlya agp slot, unless it has been modified ?. you will not be unhappy with either of these cards.

That video card wont fit your motherboard as you dont have a pcie 16x video card slot on there. you need to buy a video card that is agp.

I suggest XFX GeForce 8500 GT 512MB DDR2 PCI Express video card. No need for an upgrade & it has a lifetime warranty. The price is great! Your Asus P5VDC will run it. Here is the link:

VGA in moderboard dont work

Install the drivers. Of use your Graphics card output. If the drivers don't help, you can get round this by installing a cheap graphics card instead of replacing the motherboard.

I have installed windows 7 on p5vd-mx and it is not working fine what is the solution

This board may not support Windows 7 unless you install a video board with 128 MB or more of graphics memory. The onboard video appears to be only 64 MB. The main memory should be at 4GB even though Windows 7 will operate at a minimum of 1 GB(very slowly). I would first run the Microsoft Windows 7 Advisory software to see any compatibility issues. If it was my decision, I would get a new ASUS motherboard certified for Windows 7 with DDR3 memory, a 1GB graphics card, and a 1TB Hard Drive. Upgrading to Windows 7 requires a computer upgrade in most cases.

How to get 1920x1080 resolution in asus P5VDC-MX on board vga

The on-board graphics is not capable of that resolution. You will have to install a video card with at least 512 MB graphics memory to get there. You may be pushing the limits of this motherboard and should consider an upgrade.

I am using ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboad with window 7 operating system and drivers are not install properly. window 7 transition effects are also deactivate. why ?

To ensure your system works properly, you will need to locate the drivers for your specific hardware. Your motherboard will have its own drivers, in addition to any expansion cards you have installed, such as a graphics card. Your motherboard drivers can be located at ASUS's website:

If you have not installed an expansion graphics card, and are using the one on your motherboard, this should fix the Windows 7 "transition effects." I believe what you are referring to is the Aero theme. If you are using an expansion graphics card, you will need to get the drivers from the appropriate manufacturer (generally NVIDIA or ATI). If the effects still are not working after you install the appropriate drivers for your system, you can right click the desktop, and click Personalize. This should bring you to a screen where you can choose an Aero theme.

Also of final note, the Aero effects are not available under Windows 7 Starter, so make sure you are using Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate Edition.

Please let me know if you need any additional help with this. Thanks!

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.

My P5VDC-MX Asus motherboard are not supporting graphics.

The builf in graphics are not the best. Your best solution is to invest in a good graphics card & disable the onboard video in bios. Hope this helps.
