i have got core 2duo system 2.83GHz , asus motherboard p5gc-mx/1333MHZ , 2gb ddr2 ram , vcore volt power supply of my motherboard is 1.224 volt. i just wanna know what is the maximum memorygraphic card from nvidia i can install on my system. anything what you people suggest ..
the only criteria is,
it should be maximum memory and top end one my motherboard would support without any problem and compliblity issue and fuss.
i checked the configuration of that card . its cool but it also says it needs pci x16 2.0 support. my motherboard does it have pci x16 2.0 support . this thing is no where mentioned even at asus site ..
this is my motherboard configuration from asus site.
Your motherboard has a PCIe x16 slot so it can handle any video card. What will limit what card you can use is your power supply. We will need to know the brand and model and/or the specifications.
Also your monitor's native resolution and your budget would be good to know.
. i went to my bios settings and saw vcore volts was mentioned value of 1.224v ,
actually i never checked ps before . this is all i am able to find after looking at my bios.
could you please guide me how to check my psu. and regarding my budget i dont care because .
i even need this for my office animation work . and you know upgrading graphic is always cheaper than buying the whole cpu set from shop.
yes, you will need to take off the side of your case and look at the sticker on the side of the PSU. There should be a chart. Of most interest is the total power and also how many amps are listed for the +12v rail(s). Or just tell us the brand/model.
finally i decided the card to buy is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 video card after changing my psu on my p5gc-mx/133mhz motherboard chipset . the only question now strikes me is that does my motherboard support PCI-E 2.0 x16. this is something thats not even asus people have mentioned on their site .
nvidia site says its pci 2.0 support. does my motherboard have pci 2.0 video card installation support.
