Compatibility


No, the above video card will not work with the motherboard you have.
the video card you listed is AGP, your motherboard has PCI-Express slots, so you will need to purchase a newer video card.
When purchasing a video card, be sure to look on the box for "PCI-E" or "PCI-Express"

Compatability


You have an AGP expansion slot for a graphics card.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)
It uses either 1x, 2X, or 4X graphics cards. Since the only AGP graphics cards out there are 4X or 8X, the 1X, and 2X are moot points. (They were also Junk anyway!)

Your AGP graphics slot only supports AGP graphics cards that are 1.5 volts. There are AGP graphics cards out there, that are Universal. Universal in that they will run as AGP 8X, (.8 volts), or AGP 4X, (1.5 volts)

This is an example:

Don't expect to play the high end new intense games with this. I'm afraid you'll have to update your motherboard, processor, ram memory, and a better graphics card to do that.

(Example? XFX Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard, Intel Core2 Duo E8200 cpu, Corsair XMS2 PC6400 ram memory, 1GB x2 of them, (DDR2 at 800MHz), and XFX Geforce 9800GTX+, vid card. (Plus OCZ SteathXStream 600W power supply)
This won't break the bank, and will slam some games to the wall!)

Confusion over selection of graphics card


I don't think whether it's compatible or not is the issue with graphics card, what you need to make sure is that you have a good power supply for the cards' needs and that your motherboard has a decent FSB speed (Front Side Bus).

I've compared the specs of your motherboard to the graphics card. That looks abolutely fine, only other thing you'll need is a decent power supply, I suggest 750 watts or above as you will need 2 molex plug connections for that card. Isn't the best motherboard in the world for it but It's going to be better than the built in X3000 shared graphics you're currently using!

If you've got any other questions regarding this just give me a shout!

I need help choosing a video card.


Hi there.
Any PCI Express card will do as long as its DDR2, DDR3 is not supported by your motherboard.
You have a choice between ATI or Nvidia graphics cards and your system should support up to 1GB of graphics memory.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi Anli!

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.

Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.

Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.

Good luck with your new card M8!

Suitable Griphics Card


32 megs of graphix is nothing compared to what they have out nowadays. you need to first find out if you have a pci or an agp port. also, what operating system are you using?

what you probably need is a 2-4 year old video card which supports agp 4x.

Upgrading VIDEO CARD


If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.

Version of PCI Express


my motherboard has a PCI-E 1.0 it's an Asus Commando graphics is 9600GT which is PCI-E 2.0 and it runs fine till now no prob about that mate PCI-E 1.0 and 2.0 is backwards compatible so it should work fine make sure your graphics card is working @ x16 coz when I first plug my graphics it runs only @ x2 then I reset the bios and re-seat the graphics now fully functional x16 of PCI-E lanes.

Motherboard supported graphics card


go buy one. I don't mean to sound like an @ss, but really. Google Video card and your motherboard. It will tell you what you can get, and then go to futur shop or something and get one. Or buy one off E-Bay.
