Question about ASUS (S370L) Processor Board

Open Question

I have an Asus G71gx laptop. 6 gig ram. nvidai geforce GTX 260M graphics card. and a 2.53 GHz processor. You would think I can run just about any game out there right? well latley I have been having problems with lag spikes. It's not my ISP. I will be running at an average of 100 FPS and around 70 Ping. Then it will drop to 12 FPS and like 3000+ ping. I don't belive it is a graphic card issue because I took it to best buy and they updated all of the nvidia drivers and everything and fixed some base system error. When my game gets this lag spike I can go to my desktop and everything is delayed by atleast a 1.5 seconds. Could this be a Processor issue?

Sounds like the CPU is overclocked in your system. I would clear CMOS the try it again. The CPU is probably overclocked to far causing it to become unstable.

SOURCE: Asus P5GZ-mx compatible graphics cards

Basically, any graphics card is capable of being compatible with this motherboard. I had some difficulties for a while until I figured out you have to MANUALLY set it to use your PCIE 2.0 GPU output.
How to do this is to set your jumpers to external output only. First thing you'll want to do is update the BIOS on the motherboard (Which you can do by getting "Asus-Update". Find it on google, easy to use, just make sure your computer doesn't crash during the BIOS flashing.
Afterwards, set the jumpers to use your PCIE-2.0 slot. Took me a little while to figure this out, and it's a little hard to explain.
Above your PCIE-2.0 slot there are 5 little blue 'plastic-like' things. Those are your jumpers. Take them out and insert them HORIZONTALLY as such:
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ]
Basically, make sure the jumper things are connecting the little drawing there. They HAVE to be horizontally inserted, otherwise this WILL NOT WORK. Just plug in your monitor to the graphics card's output, and you're good to go. Hopefully it works for you.

Is not Reading My Geforce GTX 260 Card


What do you mean connect wire to graphics card?

A) Computer is to be OFF when connecting a monitor cable.

B) Computer is to be OFF, and unplugged from power; when plugging the power cable from Power Supply, into it.

You are also supposed to be Following Anti-Static Precautions.

What Power Supply are you using?
Manufacturer name, and model number. Post back in a Comment.

Motherboard requires about 150 Watts by itself.

That isn't including what the Processor (CPU) needs, Ram Memory needs, optical drive/s need, computer case fans need; AND what the Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 graphics card needs.

It needs 225 Watts by itself.

(Manufacturers usually state around 500 Watts MINIMUM.
This is in reality based on a COMPLETE computer system, and NOT just the graphics card itself)

What do I base that the GTX 260 needs 225 Watts?
(I see that as the -> Maximum, though )

A PCI Express x16 expansion slot on a motherboard, is only capable of 75 Watts of power.
That is why the additional power cables were brought out.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable that plugs into the GTX 260, is capable of an additional 75 Watts of power.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 requires using TWO 6-pin PCI Express power cables

That means 150 Watts of additional power.
75 Watts + 150 Watts = 225 Watts

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-260/specifications

"Supplementary Power Connectors -> 6-pin x2"

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

If you are using just one 6-pin PCI Express power cable, '
this = NO.

NOT enough power for the graphics card.

What will happen?

A) The PCI Express x16 slot connector oins, will burn
B) The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card, will burn.
C) The connector on the graphics card, that the 6-pin PCI Express power cable plugs into, will burn.
D) The connector on the 6-pin PCI Express power cable will burn.

The graphics card will burn up.
Too little power.

IF, your Power Supply has enough power, and IF there are two 4-pin Peripheral power cables that aren't being used; you can use a 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable.

Example of 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Example of 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable, was shown in the Playtool link,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

The GeForce FX5500 is an AGP Card (which is WAY outdated). Your board has a PCI-Express x16 slot (which is a good thing) so if you are planning to play games in the ilk of the NFS series, you can get an nVidia GT, GTS or GTX series card (I only assume you plan to get an nVidia-branded card; you still have options of purchasing ATI 4000- to 5000-series cards as well). these cards serve the purpose of entry-level to mid-range games. The only limitation of your rig would be the processor since it's a single core; but with 3 GHz & 2GB of RAM, you can play almost the entire NFS series up to Undercover, Shift & World. I'm not sure about Shift 2 & The Run: I think they require 2 cores at least.

Hi. i have a compaq presario sr5025an. I have 2 gig of ram. I have the intel core 2 duo e4300 processor. I am after a grapics card. cheers.


To get the full specs of your mainboard go to: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00893006&lc=en&cc=au&lang=en&product=3401230&dlc=en#N198

This motherboard has 1 PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card.

You could use:
Geforce 6 series (6800GT)

Geforce 7 series (GeForce 7950, GeForce 7900, GeForce 7800, GeForce 7600 ,
GeForce 7300, GeForce 7200 and GeForce 7100)

Geforce 8 series (GeForce 8800 Ultra, GeForce 8800 GTX, GeForce 8800 GTS, GeForce 8800 GTS 512, GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce 8800 GS, GeForce 8600 GTS, GeForce 8600 GT and GeForce 8500 GT)

Geforce 9 series (GeForce 9800 GX2, GeForce 9800 GTX+, GeForce 9800 GTX, GeForce 9600 GT, GeForce 9600 GSO 512, GeForce 9600 GSO and GeForce 9400 GT

Geforce 200 series (GeForce GTX 295, GeForce GTX 285, GeForce GTX 280, GeForce GTX 275, GeForce GTX 260, GeForce GTS 250 GeForce GTS 240 and GeForce GT 220

Geforce 400 series (GeForce GTX 480, GeForce GTX 470, GeForce GTX 465, GeForce GTX 460, Geforce GTX 450)

With your system however I would recommend nothing greater than a Geforce GTS 250.

Please rate me high.
Thanks.

Probably more RAM, but 900MB means you must have a 1GB card - that's pretty good. 2GB total should be plenty.
