Intel DP45SG motherboard and nvidia geforce gtx 460

Hello

Recently i owned a desktop computer with the Intel DP45SG motherboard and a geforce 9800gt, but my video card burned, so i am looking for new one. I am interested in buying the nvidia geforce gtx 460 but i dont know if it is compatible with the motherboard. Can u guys tell me if it is and what should i look to know the compatibility between motherboards and video cards?

Thanks in advance

  1. The GTX460 is fully compatible with your motherboard! All you need is the correct slot on the motherboard for the card that is PCIexpress x16.
  2. 1) Your board is compatible with the GTX 460 with no issues :)

    2) When you are looking at a motherboard compatibility, you want to look for the following:
    At least one PCIe x16 - You want 2.x or higher but you can still manage at 1.0.
    How many PCIe x16 slots you need? - Do you want to run multiple GPU's in your system or not?
    Crossfire or SLI support? - Does the motherboard support multiple cards from either AMD/ATI, Nvidia or both.
    What speeds do the PCIe slots run at? Single: x16, x8 or x4; Multiple: x16,x16 , x8,x8 , x16,x4 , ... etc.
  3. Intel DP45SG - it depends on which CPU and and RAM you have installed.

    Ans - Will it work -> Yes
    Ans - Will it perform -> sort of ; the bottleneck will be more than likely your CPU and I am pretty certain that it will cost you ~ 30-50% of potential of the GTX 460 FPS.

    Bottlenecking :(

    Not if he has Q9xxx series in there and his board has 2 x PCIe x16 version 2.0

  5. Roli59 I'm pretty certain; I'm on my iPhone now but there are benches on this subject an checkout NCIX YouTube he just did an great piece on this bottleneck subject.

    Understanding the bottleneck issue and not downplaying it. The OP has a P45 board it supports almost all the latest lga775 CPU's inclusive of QX9650 has PCIexpress x16 version 2.0 slots. The possibility (based on CPU) is that OP's computer will not at all bottleneck a GTX460.
  7. @rolli59... I agree with what you are saying about the "high-end" Q9xxx CPU's. I was just being mister nice guy and provide the link :) :lol:
  8. ^ Eh, it makes us e-x-p-a-n-d our thinking.

    BTW - it's my fault. {why do you think I spent triple $ on an i7 980X with a 3-WAY GTX 470 ;) }
  9. Thanks for the replies. i have a q9550 processor, so from what i understood it should be ok to have that video card.
  10. Yes, it will be okay. I have a Q9550 with a 9800GTX SLI setup that from my experience I haven't seen a bottleneck.

    (Granted, it is an overkill PC for my Dad's Internet/Office PC but it does allow me to have a nice Gamer when I visit the parents.) :) :lol:
  11. ^+1
    Will go well together.
  12. Doing some "logical math ratios"

    Q9550 {2.83 GHz/4C/no HT/FSB 1333/PassMark 4358} http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=33924 }
    E4300 {1.80 GHz/2C/no HT/FSB 800/PassMark 1056} http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=28024 }

    Q9550 4358
    NCIX {Crysis test}
    E4300 1056 {29 FPS}
    875K 6426 {67 FPS}

    X/29 FPS = 6426/67 FPS

    X = 2781 {since we already knew X 1056 then 'why' the disparity of 1056 vs 2781 ; ANS Architectural differences of LGA 775 and LGA 1156 }

    ANS - will the Q9550 have better FPS - Yes
    ANS - will the LGA 775 also bottleneck - Yes
    ANS - will the Q9559 also bottleneck - Yes

    ANS - how much will the 'hit' of FPS be with the Q9550 my 'guess' is as I stated before "~ 30-50% of potential of the GTX 460 FPS. "

    EDIT:
    Some more 'food for thought' - Think about the GPU technology available during the LGA 775 heyday in comparison to the GPU technology available during the LGA 1156 and now the LGA 1366. Taking a current mid-end GPU and transplanting it backwards to a generation or two has its' consequences. Similar thoughts are {tecmo34} post to PCIe 2.x -> PCIe 3.x not to mention X58 -> X68; Moore's Law is coming into effect.
  13. To early in the morning on a Saturday for math [:mousemonkey:5] I'm still in "Kids" mood, as I'm sitting on the couch with my 6yr old & 2yr old watching "Imagination Movers". Give me a little bit to get back into "Grown-up" mode to understand. :lol:
  14. Sorry jaquith, but i didnt get much of what u said. Correct me if i am wrong but if i buy a gtx 460 i will only use up to a 50% of his FPS capacity? if that so, which card would u recommend? a gts 250? or a 9800gt? or maybe another one?
  15. Go with the GTX460
    If you use the same logic we should not recommend GTX460 for AMD X4 955BE which is a comparable AMD CPU. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/88?vs=50

    My point was to attempt to illuminate the fact of 'bottlenecks' CPU and 'architecture' MOBO; using very simple ratio calculations {X/2 = 5/10 ; 10X = 10 ; X = 1} then noting the disparity in hypothetical vs actual.

    That said, I would look at either the GT 430 or GTS 450 both are cheaper, support DirectX 11, and short of 2-5 FPS are a better 'match' for the Q9550 and LGA 775 MOBO.

    This is a better comparison, but don't be mislead {It ONLY compares CPU1 :: CPU2 and has nothing to do with CPU1+GPU1 :: CPU2+GPU2GPU1} - http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/107?vs=50
    Also, AnandTech is a synthetic {mathematical approximation}

    A better choice is Futuremark {CPU + GPU}; you'll find nearly no GTX 460 + Intel Core2 Quads - http://service.futuremark.com/search/form.action
    I wonder why??

    Most importantly, it your rig and it makes no difference to my ego which GPU you purchase; if you are thinking about upgrading you entire system soon then a GTX 470 or even GTX 480 {HUGE OVERKILL now but great in a new CPU/MOBO}.

    Good Luck!
  17. GT430 does not even compare to a 9800GT in performance! It performs lower than a GT240 or a 9600GT.
  18. GT240 or a 9600GT = DirectX 10
    GT 430 or GTS 450 = DirectX 11

    Then you need to factor in the 'bottlenecking' issue, or do we have to re-start that discussion again.

    Reread my last paragraph - "Most importantly, it your rig..."

    Also, it depends on the OP "Games" and "Resolution" - Call of Duty vs Crysis 400% Difference Frame Rate {Same GPUs}

  19. Hello guys,

    I've been following your posts and I think I have a similar issue to Icotua's.

    My 8800gts 512 G92 died last week and I am considering purchasing a current gen card.

    I'm leaning towards a GTS 450 or Radeon 5770 and just became aware of the new Radeon 6850, but not the GTX460 since I do not think my PSU meets the latter's requirements (24A on +12V rail, not familiar with the matter, lol).

    Budget: $130-$200.

    System Specs:

    Intel E8400 @ 3.0 Ghz
    Asus P5K-E Wifi/AP
    2 GB Kingston Hyper-X SLI-Ready (Upgrading to 4 GB very soon)
    Thermaltake TR2 550W PSU (W0101)
    Thermaltake Soprano RS101 Case
    Viewsonic 21.5'' 1080p LCD

    I am aware of the bottlenecking issue and just want to check if I would do just fine with a 6850.

    I'm an occasional gamer but still like to run smooth FPS when gaming.

    Many thanks for your help, appreciated in advance.
  20. P.S: motherboard includes one PCIe X16 1.0 and PCIe X4. Not intending to crossfire cards, will PCIe X16 1.0 bottleneck the 6850 ?
  21. Thanks a lot guys, this helped me out.
