Radeon 5450 on Lanparty NF4 boards

Hello, I have a NF4 based lanparty board paired with a 165 Opty. I want to add one of the new 5000series ATI video cards but hear they won't work with NF4 chipset boards unless the MF has updated the bios - does anyone know if 5000 series video cards work with the NF4 lanparty boards?

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    Well PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with PCI-E 1.0, so it should work fine, however make sure you have an adequate PSU(Also update your BIOS to the latest version,it won't do any harm)
  2. I know that it should work - but I've read two different threads where someone mentioned that they couldn't get it to work in two different NF4 boards. Then I read a thread on AVSFORUM by someone who said they were getting one and would find out if it worked on their NF4 board - but they've not followed-up.

    It seems it's a board-to-board thing and was hoping someone on this DFI forum have tried to use a 5000series card on an NF4 board and share their experience.

    I plan to use the latest BIOS, I just don't want to order and have to pay return shipping if it doesn't work.
  3. Well, for anyone curious - I did end up getting a 512mb 5450 (visiontek) and it works fine on my NF4 based board - no issues at all.
  4. Glad to hear it.
    Really,there wasn't any logical reason for the VGA not to work on your board.(Because a PCI-E 2.0 card should work fine in a PCI-E 1.0 slot)
