Question about ASUS A8N-VM CSM (00610839133826) Motherboard

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.

    I have the same mobo and I just tried to install the 8500 GT and no luck. I can't get XP to start with it plugged in.

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.

Looking for advice on a video card. Would a radeon hd 5750 run on c51gm motherboard


1) You have a PCI Express x16 expansion slot, for a graphics card.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135010

(Orange)

A) 1GigaByte of graphics memory which is GDDR3. (It is GDDR3, not DDR3; trust me)
B) 800MegaHertz Core Clock
C) 1600MHz Memory Clock
D) API's - DirectX 11
Open GL 4.1
Shader Model 5.0


2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia GeForce 6100 - Northbridge, and an Nvidia nForce 410 - Southbridge.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series_chip_specifications

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Nvidia GeForce 6100/nForce 410, came out 2005.


3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

AGP technology, and PCI Express technology, ARE HIGH-speed graphics.

Using a PCI slot for a graphics card, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high speed graphics.

(As you can see in the Motherboard Diagram, the PCI bus is controlled by the Southbridge chip. The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

Means anything connected to the PCI bus, such as a graphics card in a PCI expansion slot; is handled by the Southbridge chip.
Integrated graphics also )

4) PCI Express came out 2004.
Went from PCI Express 1.0 version to PCI Express 1.1 version.
In 2007 PCI Express went to the 2.0 version. PCI Express 2.0.

Your motherboard, IMHO, uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
This is why I recommend a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology. (For one)

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1
A little iffy if it's PCI Express 1.0

I have seen a lot of problems crop up with users trying to use a graphics card, based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology; on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

That's why I recommended PCI Express 2.0

PCI Express 3.0 is supposed to overcome that, (Use on a mobo with PCI-E 1.1), but I have no real world knowledge, (Hands on), and no input from the 'outside'. (Internet/world)

5) You need at least a 400 Watt power supply. Don't have at least a 400 Watt? Time to move up.

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 trying to buy a video card for my D101GGC Motherboard. I know my motherboard has a PCI Express x16 1.0 slot so I will get a PCI Express video card. But can I get a PCI Express x16 2.0 card and will it...


Hi,

First, your RAM is already maxxed out and it is only DDR. See:

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=D101GGC

Secondly, PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with 1.0 slots.

The RAM on the graphics card doesn't matter as long as the card is compatible. As far as how much...if you can afford 1GB, great!

ATI or nVidia? That's personal preference. I have had both and was happy with both. Other manufacturers use ATI and nVidia chips and market them under their own name. Galaxy, XFX, EVGA, and others. Here are some mid-range boards from Tiger Direct:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?Lprice=100&Hprice=199.99&Nav=|c:3669|&Sort=0&Recs=10

You don't say how fast your processor is. You may be better off going for a new board or computer.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Graphics card


Go to Newegg.com or Mwave.com and do a search for 512mb video cards that are PCIe (PCI Express). Find one in your "price range" and go from there. Just don't buy one that says DDR2. Those are slow. A decent Nvidia or ATI card should be under $150. I have a 8800GT that runs just about every game on high settings. They now make a 9800GT as a replacement.

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.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

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.
