Help please Tags: Graphics Cards ASrock PCI Express Graphics Product Last response: May 14, 2010 5:02 PM in Graphics & Displays Share lmartinefc May 14, 2010 1:14:48 AM Hi, Just got an ASRock A330ION. It has a PCI-E 2.0 expansion slot Some specs say this slot is 32 bit? Can someone please explain what this means Even crappy old graphics cards use 64 bit memory control..or am i confusin this with something else? More about : pci bit wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card May 14, 2010 10:58:00 AM http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=A330ION&s=A... Is that your motherboard? I don't understand about "32bit' slot either... What about your case? i'm sure this mobo is mini ITX, so you must get low profile card if you want to add card on this mobo... lmartinefc May 14, 2010 2:04:03 PM I think the supplier must have made a **** up. OLD PCI is 32/64 bit, then there was PCI-X....now we use PCI-E (with its various revisions). Mine is PCI-E 2.0 so up to 8Gb/s. Yes need low profile card. What is the best Nvidia card i can get (to match the inbuilt Nvidia ION chipset). There was some talk of hybrid SLI, but cant find any mention of it with this board. It uses inbuilt Geforce 9 series. I know squat about Nvidia....but the nicest low profile I can find is a 250GTS ???

Are you on a plan to buy a graphic card? lmartinefc May 14, 2010 4:13:43 PM Using a dual core Atom 330 (1mb cache) @ 1.6Ghz....but want to overclock to 2.1Ghz but no info anywhere, although this is supposed to be easy. Good advantage is using Dual Channel DDR3 1333 4Gb 6-6-6-20 latency (but limited to run at 1066 due to FSB speed) The PSU is 120w...so very lame, but cant find a small mini itx PDU to fit inside my case In-Win BM series Any thoughts? wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card May 14, 2010 5:02:45 PM 120W?? I would say no, you can't add another card on your motherboard... Upgrade PSU first then you can add low profile card to give your machine more performance... (yes, it's hard to find component for mini ITX...) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
