1 Answer

Pc upgrade !

My pc has the following spec- ASUS Nforce2 A7N8X motherboard with AMD athlon XP 2400+ processor , 512mb ram and NVIDIA GeForce2 Integrated GPU (GeForce2 Integrated GPU) - NOT sure but does this mean that my graphis card is integrated with the motherboard?

My plan is to upgrade the processer ,Ram & graphics card .

The new processor will be -
AMD Athlon™ XP 3200+, 2.2 GHz (AXDA3200DKV4E) OEM which has Front Bus frequency =200MHZ and clock multipler = 11 BUT exsisting
OLD 2,4ghz chip has a front bus frequecency =133 mhz and clock multiplier = 15 will these differneces be automatically taken into account by the new chip and motherb or will i have to make some physical adjustments to either or the software?

Are there any stepping codes you know of that i should avoid?

The RAM i have NO problem with but the Graphics card if the old one is integrated how do i switch it off and when i place the new
one in which will use the AGP cons and will be DDR2 will their driver setup disc lock after it's instalation or will i need to do any thing else?

HELP!

Where you need to be is on Asus web site. Your board can handle ONLY; Athlon XP 3200+(400 MHz FSB)(Model 10)(Barton), AXDA3200BOX
With that CPU you must also have bios version 1004.
Check PCB and BIOS versions before flashing BIOS!
asus A7N8X supported CPU click here; http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A7N8X

Since you seem to need your manual. Click the link:
http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socka/nforce2/a7n8x/e1859_a7n8x.pdf

You do not have an intergrated video card. You have a 1.5v 8x
AGP video slot.
I suggest you call Asus & make sure your CPU model AXDA3200DKV4E will be supported over model AXDA3200BOX.
You can call Asus tech M-F EST at 812-282-2787.

Good luck & Have a great day!

Greetings. I wanna upgrade my processor from amd sempron 3200+ 1.8 ghz to athlon 2 x2 260 processor. But when I put the athlon 2 x2 260 proc, it didnt work.


Did you check to see if it would handle that type of upgrade? Maybe that's your problem, it's not compatible. Research and see if it can handle it, then we can find a solution if it can.

I would like advice on upgrading my Graphics card


Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.

Memory +cpu upgrade


No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.

Upgrade P5RD1-VM motherboard to the gaming PC


Your pc is not for gaming right now because you are using Intel Pentuim 4 Mother board and CPU. Amd Athlon is best for gaming. I have a AMD Athlon 4200+ X2 with 4gb Ram and Nvidia 6800 256mb OC. to upgrade your computer to a gaming pc. you will need to switch your motherboard and cpu for best performance on games. in order to do that, you might need a different case for your new motherboard. because the one you have might not be right for the AMD Athlon motherboard unless you have a custom made computer. other than that everything is set for you. if you have less than 1gb ram you might want to add more. because the games they are coming with right now is 1gb minimum or required.

i hope that answers your question.
Thank You
