Compatibility check between motherboard and video card.
Hi,

I have a Asus P4P800S-X (4 PCI, 1 AGP, 2 DDR DIMM, Audio, LAN) and I was deciding on getting a XFX GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150229). It looks like a good card, but I'm not sure if it will work with my mobo. Will it work?

I currently have a 6600gt video card:
Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT (128 MB)
3D Accelerator nVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT AGP
Monitor NEC MultiSync LCD1860NX (Analog) [18" LCD] (39108144YA)

Lets take a look at what you got and what you want.

You have a 6600GT that fits in your MB's AGP graphic slot.
You want a 8500GT that goes in a PCI Express graphics slot.

Does your MB have a PCI Express slot?

Yes, that is the one. Well, I was going to remove the 6600gt and insert the 8600gt. I didn't know I could put two graphics cards together, thought it would likely conflict or something. Would it work if I took out the 6600gt and just put in the 8600gt on my motherboard?

I appreciate the replies, thanks

If you can afford it I would go for the GTX8800 and see how it works for you. Then if you still need more power go for the 2nd one down the line. If you do go for a 2nd card you will need the SLI Bridge to link them together.

Unfortunately, the 8800gtx's price range is a bit too steep for me lol. But from what Im reading, the 8600gt has the most bang for your buck. So, does this mean that the 8600gt will work on my mobo? I just want that alone (not two graphics cards together, etc) just plain and simple, that one card should be sufficient.

I think you fail to see the humor in Bobs post, but you soon will.

This is getting almost comical.

Lets rehash. You have a AGP slot on your motherboard. The video card you posted fits in a PCI EXPRESS slot. Is there a PCI EXPRESS slot on your motherboard? As Katana said earlier NO. That leaves you with having to find a AGP video card to fit your motherboard, hense the one you picked out won't fit.

Now since I found my spoon from an earlier thread, i'll tell you that the cards you need to be looking at are AGP 4x-8x video cards. Since the 8600 doesn't come in a AGP card (that I know of), your next best option is the 7 series cards of which the 7800 or 7900 would be a ideal choice and in your price range.

ah, yes, I see the humor now. Damn, I was hoping that those 4x pci thingy would be enough somehow lol. thanks for the help.

Do you think it would be worth it if I simply bought the 8600gt and got a new motherboard? And I would simply move all the other components of my old mobo to that one? because I really want that video card lol I was hoping to get this mobo this motherboard [url="http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2224204&Sku=A455-2300"]Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition NVIDIA Socket AM2 ATX[/url] but it doesn't support P4 processors.

That leaves you with having to find a AGP video card to fit your motherboard, hense the one you picked out won't fit.



Now since I found my spoon from an earlier thread, i'll tell you that the cards you need to be looking at are AGP 4x-8x video cards. Since the 8600 doesn't come in a AGP card (that I know of), your next best option is the 7 series cards of which the 7800 or 7900 would be a ideal choice and in your price range.

ah, yes, I see the humor now. Damn, I was hoping that those 4x pci thingy would be enough somehow lol. thanks for the help.



Do you think it would be worth it if I simply bought the 8600gt and got a new motherboard? And I would simply move all the other components of my old mobo to that one? because I really want that video card lol I was hoping to get this mobo this motherboard Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition NVIDIA Socket AM2 ATX but it doesn't support P4 processors.

Well... just google a little, you need to know some things before building your own rig, this motherboard: Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition NVIDIA Socket AM2 ATX will never support an intel procesor, it has an AM2 socket
