Dear, friend

When connecting IDE devices in your computer, there are a few rules you need to know about.
First, Master and Slave devices are different for the 80-wire cables and the 40-wire cables.
Inside your computer, you generally have two (2) IDE hard drive controller connections. They look this this 99% of the time:

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,

Will a GeForce GTX 550 Ti fit into a G31MV-K Motherboard?


Hi nproudfoot,

Your Geforce card is a PCI-E 2.0 x16 and your Foxconn board has a PCI-E card slot bus. So yes, your Geforce display card will fit into the motherboard.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

I am facing problem with VGA driver for my intel D102GGC2 motherboard with window 7


the drivers might not be installed correctly you might have to uninstall the graphics card restart your computer then reinstall the graphics card and its drivers

If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers or you might need to download one

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.

Suggest Compatible Graphics Card for my D101GGC Motherboard m/c.


that board uses a pcix vid card go here and select any of these or buy one from where ever you want. make sure it is a pci express (pcix) card not a pcix 2.0 your mobo does not support the 2.0 cards.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Category/guidedSearch.asp?CatId=28&sel=Detail;55_158_13067_13067
a little advise if you want to paly serious games you will want at LEAST a geforce 6800 or gretaer card. an excellent gaming card for the money is a 9800 gtx about $100 or so look here:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?keywords=9800+gtx
you do not need the 3d cards they are expensive just look at #3 in that list. a good card for decent price. i personally use a xfx 9800 gtx to game with. no problems and most games can have the grphics turned right up. where you will run into trouble is with your single core pntium 3.2. that will limit how much you can turn everything up as some of the graphics options for games are controlled by the processor believe it or not. but still i would get a 9800 gtx if it were my system

Best graphics card support


You'll be able to fit the 9800 card in to the PCI-Express slot for the motherboard.

The problem then becomes for you, do you have sufficient power going to the card (it'll have plugs that attach to it as a part of the video card when purchased) but more importantly, will it even fit in your case? The graphic's cards are large and fairly bulky, so be sure to look at the dimensions of the card along with if you'll have enough room to house the new card within your tower.

I have a P5VD2-MX motherboard, currently I have a Geforce 7900GS.


Hi!

Since there is 1 PCI Express x16 slot you can use any PCI Express GPU, like Asus GeForce GTX 260 896MB PhysX CUDA, EVGA GeForce 9800GT 512MB PhysX CUDA, Gainward GeForce 9800GT 512MB PhysX CUDA or whatever you want as long as it is a PCI EPRESS card.

Good luck
