Video card Not really a problem, but need advice on a video card. The current one is an Nvidia GeForce 8600GT. It's very sluggish with new games (sytem has 4GB of RAM), and would like to upgrade. What would work well with this MOBO? Games that i have tried are MOHA and Crysis (both very slow). works OK with Call of Duty 4 and Prey... Thanks alienfloyd@gmail.com

This may sound weird, but remove ram to make it 2 gigs and try it again, some mobo's have issues with 4 gigs. 3 gigs usually works too.

I have a Intel 845 motherboard. recently i installed windows 7. when i play games, i get a message that "hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver"....


click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to display adapters if you see a yellow question/exclamation mark or a red X the driver will need to updated/reinstalled
right click select update driver if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it or you might need to download the drivers compatible to run your games or a hardware accelerator driver
you should browse through all of the devices to make sure the drivers have no yellow or red x's on them

Can you suggest an agp 8x video card compatible with a7v880 mobo? thanks! my nvidia fx5200 got busted...


Hello.

Since you have a ASUS A7V880 Motherboard, this means you have a VIA chipset, which does not like ATi Video Cards.

You can only go with Nvidia AGP Video Cards.

Current "Available" Models are

Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 , 5500
Nvidia GeForce 6200, 6600 GS
Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS, 7600GS


The Best Graphic Card available from the Nvidia GeForce series is the 7600GS
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814143069

If you just want another card to replace your old video card, please visit:

Hope that Helps.

GRAPHICS CARD


That motherboard and videa card connect using the AGP standard so you are quite limited to what video cards you can get without upgrading the entire system. Also, since your system is that old getting a modern graphics card will not help much as the processor (CPU) will limit it greatly.

nVidia has not released an AGP card in a few generations but they did have some back with the 7600 AGP. ATI released an AGP version of it's last generation of cards with the HD3850.

I personally think you are wasting your money and should consider upgrading your entire system if you are planning an playing any games. I would suggest getting the cheapest AGP video card you can find say a GeForce 6200 or Radeon X1550. Don't spend more than $50 or $60.

Remember that it must be AGP to fit on your motherboard. Another thing to consider is that any AGP video card you buy for you current system will not work in any new computer.

Can asrock m266a support geforce 8600gt


Dear hiran89

Please see the specification of your motherboard at the following link of Asrock. It supports only up to AGP 4x.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=M266A

The 8600GT GPU does not come in AGP setups only PCI-Express. In general even if you were to have this card then the rest of your system would bottleneck the capabilities of the card.

My advice is to buy something more suited to the system you own such as a RADEON RX2600PRO, GEFORCE 7600GT,..but still these may be still more than the system deserves right now.

Saying this the most powerfull graphics card now in AGP are the ones below

GEFORCE 7900GS, 512MB DDR3
ATI HD 3850, 512MB GDDR3

Regarding graphics


Hey bhoot,

Are you asking about what graphic card you should get? If so, I recommend anything that's geforce 7600GT+.

I recommend nVidia because a lot of games are built for nVidia. I'm not saying ATI is bad, they are good. It's just that you'll run into artifact issues (where you see tears in graphics) with some games if you go with ATI.

Go to sites like, www.newegg.com, or www.tigerdirect.com to look for a card.

If you have PCI Express, then go with that. If it's AGP, then go with that. It's all based on what your board supports.

If you're looking to run F.E.A.R, Qauke, or Battlefield, you won't need much. I would recommend at least 128mb video on the card you choose, but if you do have PCI express, I would suggest getting a 512mb video card for future gaming.

the geforce 8600GT is a good buy too. Typicall they are around $140, they have 512mb vid and have GDDR3 memory, (good clock speed on those cards). They can run those games no sweat.

Hope this helps.

(Btw, the geforce8600GT is directx 10 compatible)
