Hi,
The big differance between the two is the onboard video uses you're system memory to run & you can increase the memory for the card but that will take away system memory. What type of system memory are you using? SDRAM or DDR?
The Radeon 7000 will use its own memory freeing you're system memory. If this is you're only choice I would suggest the Radeon 7000.
I can give you a third choice which blows away both graphics cards (combined).
Here is one. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3570059&CatId=318
& here.

How about a big list. of 4x cards able to run today's game & directX 10.

The choice is your's.

Good Luck!
Have fun...

Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_FM1/F1A75M_LE/#specifications

To enable crossfire, you must have 2 identical graphic cards.

The onboard graphic can`t be used with the hd6670.

This means that you must buy another hd6670 to add on the mainboard.

The graphic cards homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH6670DI1GD3/

AMD CrossFire technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFire harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance.

You also need a large power supply min. 500 watt to have enough power.

Please disable the onboard graphic in the device manager.

Good luck

Integrated graphic controller in p4msd-800


Hi a_car, I understand your trouble. Mach Speed shows little information about the bios settings. The fastest way to get the bios to load the onboard graphics would be to clear the cmos jumper. This is shown on page 12. JCMOS1: Clear CMOS Header. Do not forget to set the jumper back to normal. If this fails to load the onboard graphics card I'll try & guide you from memory.
Enter the bios. Go to the title Advanced. Within advanced menu look for, advanced chipset features & integrated peripherals. One or both should list the settings you want to change too. When using the onboard graphics card, you will also need to set the total amount of system memory you want the graphics to use.

Good luck a_car!
Thank you for using fixya.
Merry xmiss!

I have asustekP4BGL-VM motherboard the on board vga give 4 bit colour in xp


Hi alkdt, if windows does not allow you to increase to more than four bit color the fault lays with the onboard video card & not windows.
There are a few things you can try to improve the display in XP. First thing I would suggest is for you to run windows update service. Once this service is loaded click on the custom button & look to the right side of the page. Your looking for hardware or software updates (For the video). There may be an update for your graphics card. If windows does not list an upgrade for your integrated video you can download the driver software from Asus, click on this link to load; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4BGL-VM&SLanguage=en-us
Uninstall the current video software for your Asus board before installing the new. This Asus board was made in 2003 & the onboard video uses your system memory to function. Suggest you buy a PCI graphics card & install it in to an opened PCI slot. Two reasons for this suggestion. Today’s PCI cards come with their own memory. Two, a PCI card will free up your system memory for windows. Like these PCI card;
http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=XFX+pci+video+card&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title

XFX cardscome with a lifetime warranty.

Good luck alkdt!

No display


Hi st_niclaus,
(Note: ASRock does not list the FX 5500 series AGP graphics card on their web site).
To confirm this please see the VGA supported list at ASRock, click this link:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/vga.asp?Model=775i65gv&s=775&c=VGA
There is an order that should be followed when upgrading from using the onboard video to the AGP card.
Check your bios setting. See Init. Graphic Adapter Priority page 27 & 28 in manual.
Set to: [AGI/PCI/Onboard].
Also see instructions on how to install, AGI slot: on page 17.
AGI = ASRock Graphics Interface.
If your display still does not function after making these changes, it is possible your FX 5500 is not compatible with your board.
(Suggest you buy one from the list provided by ASRock's supported link above).

Good luck st_niclaus!

Graphics card


Hi Harikris, no you can not install just any graphics card. You're Intel D845GLLY board uses an onboard graphics card. (It's an AGP graphics card).
If it's you're intention to install a new graphics card you must use a PCI graphics card. (Understand that the AGP onboard graphics is faster than a PCI graphics card). However, the PCI cards do use their own memory. (Which fee’s you're system memory to run windows.
The Intel D845GLLY has 4 PCI (White) slots, onboard. You can add a video card into the system. You're onboard video card does use you're system memory to function. If you're PC has 512MB of system memory & you're video card is set to use 128MB of memory. Than you're system is left to run with 128MB. One would think you're system is running a little slow.
The Intel D845GLLY motherboard can use up to 256MB of system memory. You can set the amount of system memory in the bios as shown on page 49, table 18. In you're manual. If you do not have you're manual you can download it from here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/cs-008853.htm
May I suggest you increase you're system memory to 1GB. Than increase you're graphics memory to 256MB. You're system will run faster & so will you're graphics card. These older Intel motherboards require memory current for you're board. Click this link: http://www.memory-up.com/Memory/IntelD12696.html
If you still feel that you want to use the slower PCI graphics card you can choose from any listed on this link: http://www.newegg.com/product/ProductList.aspx?N=2000380048+1069609642&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=48&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA
You will also need to change a setting in you're bios to boot to the PCI card instead of the AGP onboard card. Page 49.

Good Luck!

Mother board not seeing my pcix card


Hi crazieedd, the answer to you're problem is this. Go to ECS's web site. Click on this link for you're GeForce6100SM board.
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=685&DetailName=Bios&MenuID=7&LanID=9
Another user I tried to help did have the same problem as you. Though ECS does not mention there is a fix for this issue. ECS did email the user to update the bios file. (I looked at the last 2 bios updates & there is no mention of how to run the PCI-E & disabling the onboard video fix mentioned. According to ECS you are to upgrade the bios file to its most recent. That said, once the bios file has been flashed. (Preferred option is to use a floppy disk). You are to go into the bios to Advanced Chipset Features
Than to, Onboard GPU set this to read, [Enable If no Ext GPU]
Save & exit the bios.
Having this set to, Enable If No Ext GPU & using a PCI-E card plugged in to the system automatically disables the onboard video card. (Don't you just love it when the Mfg does not list this type of major fix)?
Please keep in mind the other user was not running Vista. No one has mentioned to you how bad Vista (any version) is! You may not have any troubles with Vista. Let's hope it stays that way.

Good Luck crazieedd!
