1.5.1 Graphics Subsystem
The board contains two separate, mutually exclusive graphics options. Either the integrated
graphics processor (contained within the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Northbridge) is used, or a PCI
Express x16 add-in card can be used. When a PCI Express x16 add-in card is installed, the ATI
Radeon Xpress 200 Northbridge graphics controller is disabled.

I have a ASRock CONROE1333-DVI/H R2 motherboard and i wanted to know if i could use a graphics card that requires a pci express 2.0 slot


Absolutely!

The AsRock Conroe1333-DVI/H R2 mobo uses PCI-Express 1.1 technology. It's in the Intel 945G motherboard chipset.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=CONROE1333-DVI/H

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

Scroll down to bottom of chart. 945G made in 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Scroll down to History and revisions.
PCI Express 2.0 -> 15 January 2007

A graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI express 1.1 technology.

Why?

Because PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

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

PCI Express 1.0a, and PCI Express 1.1, operate with a per-lane data rate of 250MegaBytes per Second. (250MB/s)
Transfer rate of 2.5Gigabits per Second. (2.5Gb/s)

PCI Express 2.0 operates with a 500MB/s per-lane data rate.
Transfer rate of 5.0Gb/s.

Make SURE you have Windows running, then install the software for the graphic card -> F-I-R-S-T, then physically install the graphics card.
(Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions -> FOLLOWED)

The computer will not use the graphics cards software, UNTIL the graphics card is installed.
It will keep on using the integrated graphics on the motherboard, until the graphics card is installed.

Means get the motherboard going first, use it's integrated graphics.
Install software for graphics card, and then Physically install the graphics card.
(Don't forget to attach the monitor cable to the graphics card, lol!)

Which Graphics card is supported for Intel D101GGC motherboard and how much capacity (512 or 1 GB or anything) can be supported with 1 GB DDR RAM


The graphics card's ram memory is independent of the system ram memory.

Doesn't matter if your computer system ram memory is DDR Sdram, and the graphics card has GDDR5 graphics ram memory, and 1GB of it.
(1024MB)

To expound;

Integrated, (Also known as OnBoard Graphics) Graphics borrows from the system resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
A graphics card has it's own Processor.
The GPU. {Graphics Processing Unit}

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

A graphics card also has it's own ram memory. Graphics Ram Memory.


The best expansion slot for a graphics card on an Intel D101GGC motherboard is the PCI Express x16 expansion slot.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 (For Intel)
The code name is RC410

The ATI RC410 chipset was brought out in March of 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges_2

In 2005 the PCI Express 1.1 technology was being used.
PCI Express 2.0 technology wasn't brought out until January of 2007.

Your motherboard's PCI Express x16 slot is using the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Can you use the newer PCI Express 2.0, or PCI Express 2.1 graphics cards?

YES

PCI Express 2.0, and PCI Express 2.1 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

Will you get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card?

NO

BUT you won't notice either, trust me.

You can use a graphics card based on ATI or Nvidia.
Doesn't matter.

What does matter IMHO, is to buy the best graphics card for the money, and not purchase one that will
'Break the Bank'.

You have to read through all the hype, and the flashy advertising, and make a choice based on deductive reasoning and intelligent thought.

More 'Bang for the Buck'.

You also have to base what kind of Wattage your power supply puts out, and the maximum Amp's on the 12 Volt power rail. (Or combine the 12 Volt power rails, if multiple 12 Volt rails are used)

When you look at the graphics card you wish to purchase, look for the Minimum System Requirements.
The Power Supply minimum Wattage requirement will be listed.

If it is a real powerful graphics card, the minimum 12 Volt Amp's will be listed also.

Two examples;

1) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6680896&CatId=3669

Scroll down to the > Specifications heading.
Read the bottom of the list > Minimum PSU Wattage Requirement > 400 Watts

A 400 Watt PSU (Power Supply Unit) will have at least 20 Amps on the 12 Volt power rail.
{It isn't listed in the minimum PSU requirements. This is a given}

[Is the above graphics card a decent card? You Betcha! 192 Stream Processors]


2) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6463720&CatId=3669

Uses less power than a comparable Nvidia GPU based graphics card.
A 300 watt power supply will be just fine.

[Note*

The minimum power requirements set by the graphics card manufacturer, are based upon a test system build.
They use a test computer with a gamer motherboard, powerful Processor, lot's of Ram Memory, and the power required for their graphics card.

The minimum Wattage (And 12 Volt power rail Amperage) is Not just based upon what the graphics card will use.

For questions please post in a Comment.

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!!

Reply to my motherboard


It looks like your trying to install a PCI Graphics Adapter. If that is the case, I would try the PCI Graphics Adapter any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2. That is unless, your PCI Graphics Adapter Card is a PCI Express, then that must be installed in Slot 1, if the Board supports it. If the PCI Graphics Adapter is a PCI-I Card then it must be installed in Slot 2.

Check AMD's site, they have or already implemented standards on their support chips. The standard, as I understand it, is Slot 1 - PCI Express, Slot 2 - PCI-I, if you're using those Slot for PCI Graphics Adapter.

It should be possible to use those Slots (1 & 2) for any PCI Cards that is not a PCI Graphics Adapter, be careful, I have not checked that out. Those do not handshake as Video Adapter, so the PCI card should not be thrown or overdriven, the PCI-Express and PCI-I, to my knowledge is only for Grahpics Adapters, should that be different, then Slot 1 for only PCI Express Cards and Slot 2 for only PCI-I Cards.

Me, for now, Slot 1 for Express, Slot 2 for PCI-I, and the rest of the Slot for all else. If your PCI Graphics Adapter is not an Express or PCI-I, install in any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2.
