You will probably have to boot into your BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL, depending on your motherboard. I'm not sure what motherboard you have but I think you're smart enough to find the setting that says use the video card instead of on board graphics.
Remember to do this while connected to "motherboard" graphics then switch over to the video card.

I hope this helps.

Radeon hd6850 will work with Ga 945 gzm s2


Uses the Intel 945GZ motherboard chipset,


Brought out in the mid 2006.

PCI Express 1.1 technology came out in 2005;
PCI Express 2.0 technology came out in 2007,


Therefore the Gigabyte GA-945GZM-S2 uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.


The Radeon HD6850 is based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

PCI Express 2.0 technology is backward compatible, with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

I have read problems on the internet, with graphics cards based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology, and being used on a motherboard with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

I don't have any personal factual data, to support that statement with.
Just passing what I have read, on.


System Requirements -
550 Watt or greater power supply.

Try installing the drivers for this card. If that does not work, it could be a problem with DirectX, being that it is a DX11 card while you're running DX9, or it could be defective hardware. Make sure the fan is spinning on the card when you turn on the computer.

Hi, The recommended PSU for your card is 550W.
After you connect it to your motherboard you have to connect a (6pin) PCIE power connector
to the card. Without it the video card will not display anything.

I have low fps in every game

I would need to know the details/specifications of your computer, you may be experiencing some conflicts with regard to some components holding other components back. Which is called bottlenecks!
Install the latest drivers off the AMD Website, www.amd.com
The latest drivers will make your graphics card work more efficiently.
In my opinion this card shouldn't have any problems running at 1920X1080 at Medium to High Settings with X4 AA or more.
It's a good Card, ensure that the Temperatures are kept in check. Remember the cooler you get it the more efficiently it's going to run.
Install some 120mm fans on your case if you can, Cooler Master have designed some super cool fans. I myself use the new Sickle Flow 120mm blue, 2000RPM 90 Cubic Feet per Minute.

All the best!
