  1. did you have PCI or AGP card? AFAIK all FX5000 from nvidia are based on AGP. btw the pc only showing 4x AGP for the card since your mobo only support up to 4x even if your card able to support up to 8x. also your mobo won't be able to use 8800GT since your mobo does not have PCI-E x16 slot.
  2. you need a pci express slot for 8800gt and i dont think your motherboard have one and about your graphics card issue try updating your drivers
  3. hey ok i will try that but and idea why my games show drivers not up to date but i have the latest ones that work with nvidia geforce fx5200
  4. oh yes and is there any card with shader model 3 i can put on my pc cause i really want to play left 4 dead and league of legends with no lag

    can i make games run a little beather anyways cause i play wow lich king with 50 fps normal and wow cataclysm with about 35 fps but in battleground drops to 15 anyway to fix that?
  6. the performance will surely drop when there are more things to be rendered on the screen. if you want better performance you'll have to upgrade you gpu. the best AGP card you can get is HD4670.
  7. ok so what you are teling me is that i can get hd4670 on my current motherboard?
  8. yes but it has to be AGP version. you can't use PCI-E version of HD4670
  9. ok ty
