NVIDIA Tesla M1060 GPU not working with MSI-K9N6PGM2-V2 motherboard

I am running a computer with a MSI-K9N6PGM2-V2 motherboard and a Athlon 64 X2 5200+ cpu. When I hook up my NVIDIA Tesla M1060 GPU, the computer beeps 8 times but will not boot.

Does this mean my motherboard and gpu and incompatible? If so, what kind of motherboard will work with both my gpu and cpu?

If it makes any difference, I have only 1.7 Gb of ram at the moment.

Thanks,
Alex

    Well the only thing I can say for sure is that GPU is meant for server grade machines and not consumer grade. Are you giving that card enough power? What make/model PSU do you have? I am not sure that card will even boot correctly if it is not installed into a server class motherboard. What in the world are you trying to use such a card for? They are not any good at all for gaming.

    Thanks for the reply.

    My PSU is a Dynex 520-Watt ATX. When I power up the card, I get the two green lights the manual tells me I should get.

    I want to do physics simulations on the graphics card, but I am on a budget (this is more of a hobby than a career). I looked for what kind of graphics card would be good for physics simulations and came across Nvidia's Telsa series. After checking that my motherboard had the correct PCIe slot, I got the cheapest Tesla I could find.

    If the problem is indeed the motherboard, what kinds of motherboards do you think would work with this graphics card? Can you recommend any cheap ones? Would a Tyan S2925G2NR(S2925-E) work? That was the cheapest "server grade" ATX motherboard I could find from a quick search on ebay.
  3. Hello,
    You need a motherboard that supports PCIe version 2. Your motherboard does not.
    As far you give 180W to your GPU it should work on any motherboard supportin PCIex16 Gen2.
