Question about ASUS A8N-VM CSM (00610839133826) Motherboard

1 Answer

Version of PCI Express

Hello.

I'm about to buy an 8800GT video card but am told that PCI Express 2.0 cards are compatible only with motherboards with PCI Express 1.1 and higher. My motherboard is an A8N-VM CSM-UAYGZ. I'd appreciate someone telling me what version of PCI Express it is.

Thanks.

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.

What graphics card compatible for ms 7057 mother board


Looks like that motherboard only has PCI slots to use. You can choose any video card that connects to a PCI slot(Not PCI-e, PCI express, or AGP).

Is nvidia 9600gt graphic card compatible with asus p5rd2vm motherboard


Yes.

1) The Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard has a PCI Express x16 slot.

The Nvidia 9600GT uses a PCI Express x16 slot.


2) The PCI Express version used on the Nvidia 9600GT is PCI Express 2.0

The PCI Express technology used on the Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard is PCI Express 1.1

The motherboard chipset used on the Asus P5RD2-VM shows us this.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI RD480. (Before AMD bought ATI out)

The ATI RD480 chipset came out September 27, 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges

Scroll down until you come to > RD480 in the left column, then read across.

The PCI Express technology started under another name, then was changed to PCI Express.
The first version was PCI Express 1.0
Then PCI Express 1.1

In 2007 (January 15) the PCI Express 2.0 technology was brought out.


The PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
(With PCI Express 1.0 also, but it depends on the graphics card being used)



In otherwords, a graphics card that has been based upon the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice?
NO.

[ If I had my choice I would run an Nvidia 9800GT instead.
Depends on the price, and availability of the 9600GT I would assume, though.
You may also need a more powerful Power supply.

I am thinking about buying a 9800gtx+ video card


That board has PCI, PCI Express and PCIx16 interfaces. So if the video card has any of those interfaces, it should work.

Can I My motherboard support a PCI video card?


Hi there.
Your motherboard will support both kinds of Video card.
PCI is quite old and is only supported up to 128MB of video memory.
PCI Express is new technology and is by far the best card that you can buy giving you the best graphics experience and can support up to 1GB of graphics memory making it good for gaming.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

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.

Graphics card compatibility


That mobo is here"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138090

It says it has a PCIe x16 slot, so really good graphics cards running on PCIe x16 will work on it.

This is a list of the PCI express x16 cards you can buy:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%201069609641&name=PCI%20Express%20x16

Generally the more they cost the better the performance but that is another story =)

If you wanna to hit me up with your full PC specs of CPU, RAM, Windows version, etc, i could recommend cards for certain games.

It also has PCI so older and less powerful PCI cards can likely be used.

8800gt black screen


Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.
