Yes, it should work ok.. Your motherboard supports 1 x AGP8X, and since this card is 8x AGP, and includes a power adapter cable, it should be fine. Just make sure you have an adequate power supply (400watt+)...

    there will be a sticker on the power supply itself (could be inside the pc, you may even have to take the power supply out). Also, you can look up the model number of your PC, and check the website of the manufacturer, it may list what type of PSU is in your computer.

What is a good video card for P4VP-MX mother board? Mainly for smooth video streaming and HD /Blue Ray viewing?


Hi,

Your motherboard has an an AGP 4x slot.

AGP is an older technology now and has been superseded by PCI-Express graphics.

The best AGP card you can get would be something like this:

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/5416296/Sapphire-ATI-Radeon-HD-3850-512MB-DDR3-AGP-8X-Graphics-Card/Product.html

It is more than powerful enough for HD video and also has good 3D graphics performance.

Please rate my answer if this helps.

Many thanks,

Chris

So which video card do i need? i have 845gl motherboard . before installing this video card (rage XL 8mb pci) my pc plays videos and most 3d game very (even gta sanandreas) efficiently but now it is not...


Hi,

The ATI Rage XL 8MB PCI video card is a very old and low power video card.

PCI graphics cards are not as fast as AGP graphics cards so if your motherboard has an AGP slot (it's the slot closest to the CPU and is usually coloured brown) then that would give you better performance.

These days AGP has been superceded by PCI-Express but since your motherboard does not have a PCI-Express slot then the best graphics card for it would be something like this one:

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/5416296/Sapphire-ATI-Radeon-HD-3850-512MB-DDR3-AGP-8X-Graphics-Card/Product.html

Hope this helps, please rate my answer :)

I have p5vdc-mx and id like to add a more powerful gaming card


The best graphics cards you can run on this board by experience is the Ati sapphire hd 3850 Radeon 512ram, or the next best card I personally had was the geforce xfx 7600gt 256 ddr3 ram, this card was a really good performer.

GRAPHICS CARD


I suggest XFX GeForce 8500 GT 512MB DDR2 PCI Express video card. No need for an upgrade & it has a lifetime warranty. The price is great! Your Asus P5VDC will run it. Here is the link:
