No I do not.

ECS Support does though,

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=830&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

Click on the Download tab.
(Features / Specification / Download / FAQ / CPU / Memory )

Click on Manual
(Driver / BIOS / Manual )

Scroll to the bottom, click ON the country name nearest yours.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Go to the Bottom/Middle of the page with your mouse cursor. The ghosted out navigation guide will appear.
Go to the far right, and click on the Adobe PDF icon.
(When you hover your mouse cursor over it -
Show Adobe Reader toolbar - will briefly appear)

The Zoom In icon ( + ) increases the view size, if you click on it.
The Zoom Out icon ( - ) decreases the view size.

The PDF file page number box is to the right of the Down Arrow.
The PDF file page numbers, and the motherboard manual page numbers, do Not match.
When I refer to a page it is the PDF file page.

If you know the page number you want, you can go page by page, using the Down Arrow to arrive at it,
Or;
1) Put your mouse cursor in the PDF file page number box,
left-click once. (Anything in the box is now highlighted in blue)

2) Type the page number
3) Press the Enter key.

Go to Page 10. Motherboard Components.
Motherboard installed in your computer;
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, and white PCI slots to the Bottom;

The Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right corner. (8)
Go to Page 33. Front Panel header pinout.

The Front Panel header lies horizontal, and parallel to the bottom edge of the motherboard.

It is two rows of contact pins.
The TOP row is numbered EVEN.
The Bottom row is numbered ODD.

Starting from the LEFT side going towards the Right, for the Top row:
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO pin 10.

Starting from the LEFT side going towards the Right, for the Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the two wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. It was for factory use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power On LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

SOURCE: Is it possible to dual video card in ECS 945gct-m (v1.0)?

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=727&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

Let's read together,

" 945GCT-M v1.0 motherboard features the 945GC and ICH7 chipsets, supporting Intel Core 2 Duo/ Pentium D processor up to 1066 MHZ FSB and GMA950 embedded.

-> With two PCI-E graphic cards, this board can support Scalable D.G.E., which produces supercharged 3D performance, and enables two bridged PCI-E based graphic cards to work jointly.

-> Moreover, with enabled -> onboard VGA and -> PCI Express add-on card, this board can perform Surround Display which provides a panoramic view, along with an unique real-time experience of surround game display."

Will support two PCI-Express x16 graphics cards.
What isn't stated in that paragraph, is one graphics card will be supported at 16x, with the other being supported at 4x.

The Orange PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 16x bandwidth. (Hmmm, looks Red to me)

The Blue PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 4x bandwidth.

Was just bringing up the point, that the mobo will support OnBoard, or Integrated graphics, AND also one of those PCI-Express x16 slots.

"Surround Display"

Means BIOS will allocate an Interrupt Request for the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics, and also allocate an IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 graphics card, for using BOTH at the SAME TIME.

Never have seen this before. Must lead a sheltered life! Lol!
No big deal, however. Two graphics cards are much better.

IF, your Power Supply does NOT have two 6-pin PCI Express power cables, AND you use an adapter power cable, that uses two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, MAKE SURE you use TWO -> 4-pin Peripheral power cables! <-

If not you will burn up the power cable's connector.
You will burn up the power cable connector on the graphics card.
You will burn the PCI Express x16 slot the graphics card is sitting in.

May not happen right away, but I Assure you it Will happen!

The Yellow wires are 12 Volt wires. (DC)
Need two for every graphics card.

Do I know if they will both physically fit? No.
You have the motherboard, and the two graphics cards, though.

What graphics cards can i use with it


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Download&Model=ALiveNF4G-DVI

The mainboard has 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, for the graphic card.

Almost all new graphic cards, has this socket type.
The old type is AGP, but it does not fit this mainboard.

I recommed to use ATI/AMD HD series.

A big graphic card also needs, a bigger power supply.
At least 500 watts.

Good luck

Can an EliteGroup 945GCT-M3 run a Geforce 440 GT graphics card?


AS it GEFORCE 440 requires (pci express) PCI-E 2.0 x 16 and your motherboard has 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, so you just need to check your motherboards manual if motherboards pci express is x16 2.0 if so, you can go for a upgrade and run. as I found itcan run nvidia geforce 8 or 9 on fixya.

Vedio card


Nvidia card
PCI-E (express)
For example:

Depends on what you want to do? do you play games? or just browse the internet? If you dont play any games or use any 3d programs, you will do fine with a cheap card nvidia 8400 for example


If you play games
8600GT or 9600GT OR NEWER.

Take one you can afford.
