Hi yair_osman,
Install PCI Express [Graphics / Video Card]
You can install {Any Type} of PCI Express Card.
It 'must be a [16x PCIe] card!" the "lowercase" (e) = Express.
Important!: It "must fix the {Form Factor} of your Desktop!"
Meaning: "The "Dimensions" in (inches)
Go to the "Website" below.
Its for your Desktop "Assembly Guide"

This is an example of a PCI Express Card:
Galaxy 43GGS8HX3SPZ
GeForce GT 430 Video Card
Price: $69.99

    This 'comment' is for FixYa! So my understanding is; -10 is {subtracted} for "Not Helpful: Solutions!" But! When the "Solution is Very Helpful! = 5 or < LESS!" ? Is this "Correct"!? I have another ?Question? Do a number between a (100 to 1000) people respond quicker, and more to "Solution that do not help!" In comparison to the "Solutons that do?"

The Intel DG965SS has both an integrated graphics chip and a PCI-express slot. You can choose any of the available PCI-e card available from either ATI or Nvidia, depending on your budget.
As a rule of thumb, the more expensive card are faster but also require more power (and are usually noisier as well).

Your board has the more recent PCIe input so any PCIe card would fit. You want to pay attention to the power requirement(don't want to overload) If you gine me the model# of your system I can give you the specs, providing it hasn't beem changed. If it is all Intel you can have Intel scan your computer to find out what you have. Hope this helps. Post any other quetions to me regarding this at the "add comment" prompt at end of solution.

    how do I know what is my power supply ?
    when buying a video card what I need to do to make it work ?

  • David Petry Mar 13, 2011

    I can tell you with the model of your computer but, your cpu is rated at a certain wattage,ie,400w, and you want to make sure you don't exceed that with the power supply needed from the card you get. What do you want the card to do? As mentioned by others you do have garphics on board with your board.

  • David Petry Mar 13, 2011

    Depending on what you are looking to do, you want to get a card that has the PCIe x16 hook up, You will have to remove the side cover of your tower to install. Some cardscome with a cord to hook to you power source., which is why you have to stay within your power rating,

  • yair_osman Mar 13, 2011

    thanks for the fsta response
    My son started playing NBA 2K11 on the computer and the game went very slow , I had to downgrade the video seeting to make it work . does the video card has the needed power supply listed n it when you buy it

  • David Petry Mar 13, 2011

    No it does not. If you are wanting it to play games, what kind of games. HI-tech games require alot of power. Please describe what you want and what the current problem with system is. You may just need an upgrade.

  • yair_osman Mar 13, 2011

    I have tried t check if my video driver is update and got message that it is , my son is playing NBA 2K11 and if not downgrading the setting - resulation , side view etc... the game goes very slow .

    If you go to this link there is a box torwards the top (white)"Run Intel Driver Update Utility"
    Click on that and Intel will scan your computer and provide you with appropriate updates. You may have a box pop up torwards top of screen that you will need to click on and allow to continue. Try this and let me know what happens.

  • David Petry Mar 13, 2011

    I looked maore at you board and for playing games you may want a garphics card. There are al different types. Anyway if you could give make of yuor system,ie;Dell, HP, etc., and model # I can give you the wattage of your system, providing it hasn't been changed. Are you the original owner?

  • yair_osman Mar 13, 2011

    I run the driver check and it says my graphic driver, chpset INF are current - no need to update , I have build the computer by myself - will need to open the case and rememenr what power supply I have plug in - thanks for all your help

  • David Petry Mar 13, 2011

    Whatever card you but shpuld come with a installation cd, and install the most recent software avaiable at the time of manufacture. Other things to consider would be the output of the card, to hook to your monitor/tv. Most of the newer cards offer HDMI outputs and DVI outputs and alot of the cards have integrated chipsets for audio. Depending on how you will view the graphics, you may need; HDMI cable, DVI adaptor. Otherwise you should get everything you need with card.

The specs for your board can be viewed here. It shows there being 2 PCI slots, 1 PCIe x1, and 1 PCIe x16. Those are the types of cards you can use. Anything listed as AGP is not compatible with your board. Compusa has these PCI cards available.

Hope this helps

Does INTEL D915GLVG Motherboard supports Graphics/Video Card? OR Can I add Graphics/Video Card to INTEL D915GLVG Motherboard? - Kindly suggest me.


gaming is limited by the os that you have
gaming is limited by the speed of the cpu ( intel chip)you may even be limited by the graphic card that you can use in the mother board slot
when faced with all of these decisions and obvious lack of knowledge of what works best, find your self a computer repair shop and talk about upgrading to what you want
you say that cost is no object but to get what you want it will be a new mother board and fast chip ( probably a duel core or quad core) and a suitable graphic card for gaming
you can build a computer up from parts off the shelf and the cost will be around 1/2 the price of a computer from a retail shop and you will get exactly what you want

I have DG965SS mother board and I am about to buy video card PCI-E , what I need to do to have this card working and not using the on-board craphic ?


When you already purchased a new PCIE card for it what you need to do is to just plug the video card to the mother and then power it on and computer will automatically disable the onboard video card and then once computer is up run the setup disc for the new video card and install all the software for it and you;re ready to go now.

Hi Kevin_wil699. Any AGP video card. Including 2X/4X/8x will work on that motherboard. Just look for a 256 to 512MB of memory, GPU speed, the models and brands are endless... I hope this helps.

No Video


Hi Keith, the Intel D845GVAD2 board uses an integrated graphics card for video & also uses your system memory to function.
Suggest, you remove the system memory & clean the contacts with alcohol. (Allow time for the alcohol to dry). Blow the memory slots out with canned air to remove any dust build up. Reseat your memory & boot the system. (No display)?
From your description it sounds like the integrated graphics controller may be bad. The only way to test this would be to add a PCI video card to the system.
The board’s bios uses auto detect. If you add a PCI graphics card to the system the bios should auto detect the PCI video card & load display.
There is a chance that the controller is too damaged & the bios will not see the PCI graphics add in card. In this case the board would be considered bad. If you have a local computer shop or know of someone who may (have a known to be good) PCI video card, you can ask to borrow it & test your system for video display.
Here is a link to an inexpensive PCI card:

Hi sunee, when a motherboard has an integrated graphics card it's something you can not see. (Integrated mean part of the board). The Intel you have has an 865GV chipset (No card slot). You'll need to enter your bios & find your graphics card. The bad part of a integrated video card is it shares your main system memory to function. So if you set the memory usage to say 128MB & your PC has a total of 512MB your video card takes 128MB leaving your system to run 384Mb.
This link is drivers for your 865GV chipset Intel board.

This link shows your board & its specifications.
http://www.firingsquad.com/hw/4096/FIC_P4M-865GV/

You can add a PCI video card to free system memory.
I suggest you check your manual. You are looking to see if your bios will allow you to use a PCI video card.
