Hi geminip3, you need to make a couple bios changes when using a PCI-E graphics card. Still have your manual? Go to page 36. Advanced Chipset Features. Onboard GPU (Enable If No Ext GPU). By adding a PCI-E card this should be set to Disable. Than go to page 44. Init Display First (PCI Slot), set this to [PCI-E]. Read each page.
Than save your bios & exit. The system will auto restart. If you do not see display, wait about a minute & remove the monitor cable to the second out put slot. Some PCI-E cards need more power than the PCI-E motherboard slot can provide. You may find a power port on the PCI-E card. Some look just like the power cord for a floppy, others look like the power cord for an IDE hard disk drive. The latest ones are black in color & one end connects to an opened 4-pin molex (IDE power cord). Let’s address the onboard video card. (No PCI-E card attached). Back to page 36. Onboard GPU should be set to [Enable]. Page 44. Set Init Display First to [VGA/PCI]. Page 45. PCI/VGA Palette Snoop, set to [Disable]. I was unable to find where in the bios one can set the amount of system memory to run the onboard VGA. ECS manual is not the easiest to work with. Note: Ihave worked on other ECS MB's & though the above information has worked out ok for some, its not worked out for others. If the above suggestions do not work out, suggest you call ECS tech. I have emailed ECS stating their manual is confusing & asked for them to explain bios settings for VGA & PCI-E. Correct bios settings for your MB & user jrl1261's MB GeForce6199PM-M2. If the above settings do not work out. Don't fret. ECS wil get back to me & I'll post their email here.

    Hi geminip3, How to get display? First, if you have a PCIe connected to the board remove it. Than while your inside the system clear your cmos/bios. Open your manual to page 4. See number 8 for location on the motherboard. See page 9. Move the jumper from pins 1 & 2 & set to pins 2 & 3. Count to 15 & move the jumper back to pins 1 & 2. Connect your monitor to the VGA output connector on the back side of the motherboard. By clearing the bios it will automatically revert to the onboard video. Boot your systems & check for video display. If you do not have display even though the system seems to be loading. Check your monitor by connecting it to another working system or notebook. Check all internal connection. Make sure nothing is loose. Still no display? The board may be faulty.

    ECS tech said in an email; There are no changes that need to be made to use a PCIe video card. The BIOS will automatically disable the onboard video once it detects a working dedicated video card. The board may be defective. Call ECS (See your manual for number) or e-mail ECS. Start here;

No, the one you want will not work simply because it's too powerful for the board and will not be recognized. Here you can find all supported processors

as you can see the only ones for your mobo are Q6600 and Q6700.
