  1. You have a PCI express slot, although I can't tell if it's PCI-E 1.0 or 2.0.

    Also, there's a LOT more to consider than just a motherboard, please list your power supply, what CPU you have, and what memory you have, and what you plan on using the computer for
  2. Best answer
    For technical specifications on your motherboard, reference:

    http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15113/eng/D101GGC_TechProdSpec.pdf

    And either way, any PCI Express video card will work, as long as you have the Power Supply to supply the proper power for it.
  3. Yup, as long as you have pci-e slot on your motherboard then you can add any pci-e card... :)

    Your motherboard is released at 2005, so i guess it only has pci-e rev 1.0.
    What are you going to do with this card? game? watching videos?

    I am just upgrading my PC for better performance
    I have already upgraded my memory to 2GB DDR
    Here's what may help

    1.6 PCI Express* Connectors
    The board provides the following PCI Express connectors:
    • One PCI Express x16 connector supporting simultaneous transfer speeds up to 8 GBytes/sec
    • One PCI Express x1 connector. The x1 interface supports simultaneous transfer speeds up to
    500 MBytes/sec
    The PCI Express interface supports the PCI Conventional bus configuration mechanism so that the
    underlying PCI Express architecture is compatible with PCI Conventional compliant operating
    systems. Additional features of the PCI Express interface include the following:
    • Support for the PCI Express enhanced configuration mechanism
    • Automatic discovery, link training, and initialization
    • Support for Active State Power Management (ASPM)
    • SMBus 2.0 support
    • Wake# signal supporting wake events from ACPI S1, S3, S4, or S5
    • Software compatible with the PCI Power Management Event (PME) mechanism defined in the
    PCI Power Management Specification Rev. 1.1


    Form Factor microATX (9.60 inches by 8.60 inches [243.84 millimeters by 218.44 millimeters])
    Processor Support for the following:
    • Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 or 533 MHz
    system bus

    Memory • Two DDR SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
    • Support for DDR 400 MHz and DDR 333 MHz DIMMs
    • Support for up to 2 GB of system memory
    Chipset • ATI Radeon* Xpress 200 Northbridge
    • ATI IXP 450 Southbridge
    • 4 Mbit Firmware Hub (FWH)
    Video ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Northbridge
    Audio High Definition Audio subsystem using the Realtek ALC861 audio codec
    Legacy I/O Control SMSC SCH5017 Legacy I/O controller for hardware management, diskette drive,
    serial, parallel, and PS/2* ports
    USB Support for USB 2.0 devices
    Peripheral
    Interfaces
    • Eight USB ports
    • One serial port
    • One parallel port
    • Four Serial ATA interfaces
    • Two Parallel ATA IDE interfaces with UDMA 33, ATA-66/100 support
    • One diskette drive interface
    • PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports
    LAN Support 10/100 Mbits/sec LAN subsystem using the Realtek 8101L LAN adapter device
    BIOS AwardBIOS* for Intel® resident in the 4 Mbit FWH
    Expansion
    Capabilities
    • Two PCI Conventional* bus connectors
    • One PCI Express* x1 bus add-in card connector
    • One PCI Express x16 bus add-in card connector
    Instantly Available
    PC Technology
    • Support for PCI Local Bus Specification Revision 2.2
    • Support for PCI Express Revision 1.0a
    • Suspend to RAM support
    • Wake on PCI, RS-232, front panel, PS/2 devices, and USB ports
    Hardware Monitor
    Subsystem
    (controlled by SMSC
    SCH5017 I/O
    controller)
    • Voltage sense to detect out of range power supply voltages
    • Thermal sense to detect out of range thermal values
    • Three fan connectors
    • Three fan sense inputs used to monitor fan activity
    • Fan speed control

    a fully loaded D101GGC board (all three expansion
    slots and the PCI Express x16 add-in card connector filled) must not exceed 8 A.
