Re: re : graphics card nvidia
No the P4MV890 is very differant then the P4MV8. People like myself & others at FixYa need the correct model number to find the correct soulation. The P4MV8 has an AGP slot & the Integrated VIA® UniChrome Pro 3D/2D Graphics. The P4MV890 does not have a APG8x. I posted everything you need to correct lockups. I'll past it here for you:
sleepoholic, this is what you need to do. You can not run both at the same time. The 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. You want to set the PCIExpress card first. Not the UniChrome Pro. Your on board UniChrome Pro is using your system memory. You no longer need to do that. The UniChrome Pro is not like an AGP card, which is a lesser card compaired to the PCIE. And theUniChrome car is a PCI, which is a lower end card compaired to the AGP. Your CPU & PCIE have a direct link to each other. OK? The AMR slot is for a modem. Most people do not use the AMR, they just use the PCI slot. AMR is supposed to be able to transfer data faster. (Sure!).Here is the link to your board: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P4VM890 Post back if you still have questions. Enjoy! please vote.... ty

*********** board has an Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics, maximum shared memory of 1G, it should be automatically disabled if the pcie slot detects a video card but some mother board embedded gpu runs with the pcie card unless disabled in the bios.
Do you have plans on running a SLI (Scalable Link Interface) linking two or more gpu to produce a single output on *********** board. why SLI? because you already hae a GTS 450 GPU but you cant do this configuration because *********** board has a single pcie slot.
If you have plans on running a pci gpu with your GTS 450 it should, but if you encounter any problem try manually assigning IRQ's and resources through the BIOS? I don't have this specific
Hopefully this information helps.
Thanks you for using FixYa.
You need to check your board for this info, or download the software to give you details of what is installed on your system. Go to www.download.com and have a look in the system utilities section. You can also go to hp.com and in the support section, check the manual for your machine.. PCI slots look completely different to PCIE slots, PCIE slots are longer so that can be an indication of which slot the board has..
Basically, any graphics card is capable of being compatible with this motherboard. I had some difficulties for a while until I figured out you have to MANUALLY set it to use your PCIE 2.0 GPU output.
How to do this is to set your jumpers to external output only. First thing you'll want to do is update the BIOS on the motherboard (Which you can do by getting "Asus-Update". Find it on google, easy to use, just make sure your computer doesn't crash during the BIOS flashing.
Afterwards, set the jumpers to use your PCIE-2.0 slot. Took me a little while to figure this out, and it's a little hard to explain.
Above your PCIE-2.0 slot there are 5 little blue 'plastic-like' things. Those are your jumpers. Take them out and insert them HORIZONTALLY as such:
+ [ + + ]
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ]
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ]
Basically, make sure the jumper things are connecting the little drawing there. They HAVE to be horizontally inserted, otherwise this WILL NOT WORK. Just plug in your monitor to the graphics card's output, and you're good to go. Hopefully it works for you.
That computer can handle an 8800GTX because it does have 1 PCIe x16 slot for it, which is what the card requires. It also should have enough power for that card as well. I imagine the Quadro is in the PCIe x16 slot though so you have to choose which card to use, not both.
Quadro cards are for workstations that are for 3D modeling and things of that nature. They are very expensive graphics cards but do not play games all that well. I imagine the 8800GTX would play games better, and certainly run Crysis if the resolusion and settings are not on HIGH.
