The Asrock P4VM8 motherboard does not have a PCIE slot. Only a AGP. Listed below, click the link:

    Well there's is a big difference between a P4VM890 & P4VM8.

    OK, now that I have the correct information & checked the spec's.

    sleepoholic, this is what you need to do. You can not run both at the same time. Integrated VIA® UniChrome Pro 3D/2D Graphics & the PCIExpress. This is why your getting lock-ups. Enter your Bios setup menue. Go to the Advanced section. Pg. 25 in your manual. You'll see PCIPaP Configurations. Click it & than click

    PCIE/PCI operatin mode. From factory it is set to [Async.mode]. Click on it & see what other options you have because you want to use the PCIExpress card first. Not the UniChrome Pro. Your on board UniChrome Pro is taking your system memory as well. You no longer need to do that. The UniChrome Pro is not like an AGP, it is a PCI thus runs far slower that the PCIE. Your CPU & PCIE have a direct link to each other. OK?

    Post back if you still have questions. Enjoy!

    please vote.... ty

    The AMR slot is where you can put a modem. Pg. 14 in your manual.

The GeForce FX5500 is an AGP Card (which is WAY outdated). Your board has a PCI-Express x16 slot (which is a good thing) so if you are planning to play games in the ilk of the NFS series, you can get an nVidia GT, GTS or GTX series card (I only assume you plan to get an nVidia-branded card; you still have options of purchasing ATI 4000- to 5000-series cards as well). these cards serve the purpose of entry-level to mid-range games. The only limitation of your rig would be the processor since it's a single core; but with 3 GHz & 2GB of RAM, you can play almost the entire NFS series up to Undercover, Shift & World. I'm not sure about Shift 2 & The Run: I think they require 2 cores at least.

CONNECT 3D RADEON 9550 256MB display problem


That graphics card i'm afraid is not good for todays games, same thing goes for your pentium 4. A driver update may fix your problem but that card and cpu need changing, probably a new motherboard would be needed also to fit a pci express graphics card along with a core 2 duo processor.

Computer and video card memory/ram


Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.
