Question about Intel D915GAG Socket 775 Motherboard - 915G Chipset - Onboard Audio, Video, Lan - MicroATX

1 Answer

Can I install a PCI video card on my D915GAG?

I have a Radeon X1300 256meg ram PCI video card that I would like to install on my motherboard... when I install it and turn on my computer all I get is a blank screen... The card does work because I tried it in a different computer. The manual I have for the motherboard does not say any thing about only using the PCI Express slot for video. But I have a feeling it only lets me use the PCI Express for video (other than the onboard video), but can someone confirm this?

Thanks
Shawn

    Well in the bios it seems to have the capability to use PCI, the options are PCI, PCIe and AUTO, when I put a PCIe card in it worked like a charm. In the manual it always refers to the PCIe as being used for Video upgrade, it never says "you cannot use a PCI video card" but I need to use an extra PCI card I have in this computer if possible.

Are you sure it's a PCI slot you are putting it into, and not a PCIe slot? If so, check your BIOS is set to allow PCI graphics.

    Change the option to PCI or Auto and it should work just fine :)

Yes, it is compatible, just that you must first uninstall the previous video driver, then configure the BIOS to route the video signal to the PCI and not the AGP and only then install the new card. And in the end it will behave worse than the previous AGP card you got because the PCI interface is way slower than the AGP.
Just buy a good AGP card, PCI cards are made for office pc's in which the onboard one is totally obsolete.

the card should work, however you wont get nearly the capibility of the card with that motherboard (as the card uses PCI 2.0 and the mobo only supports 1.0 speeds). So long story short, it will work, but the graphics card is a little overkill.

Hope this helps!

Thanks

According to the specs of the MSI 9400gt 512mb HDMI graphics cards, its system requirements are:
1. PCI Express or PCI Express 2.0 - compliant motherboard with one x16 graphics slot.
2. Power supply of 300 (and up) watt is highly recommended for system stability.

Please refer to this article:
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-012073.htm

Also, if possible, try to install your new graphics card into another computer & see if it will work fine or not.

I need help choosing a video card - part 2


PCI is the older, slower format, PCIe is newer and faster, but your system MUST support PCIe or it won't work.
So easy option is to find if your system supports PCIe and then get whichever is suitable.

Video card


The MSI KT4V motherboard is an AGP board supporting 4x/8x AGP. You cannot use a newer PCI-Express Video Card, however an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 either PCI or AGP will run just fine in it. The NVidia FX 5500 doesn't come in PCI-E. Additionally The ATI Radeon 9550 doesn't come PCI-E so you should be safe with AGP versions of either. I should note however, that you'll get better performance out of the ATI Radeon 9550 as opposed to the NVidia FX 5500.

I hope this answers your question,

First off, it needs to be a desktop. Make sure the Motherboard has a PCI-e slot, and that the card is seated properly. Also make sure that you screw in the metal tab in properly or the card could come loose.
