More about intel support geforce 5600
  1. if possible pls reply fast ._.
  2. Thats just your onboard chipset right so why wouldnt is support that card? Assuming you have the slot for it theres no reason the 5600 wouldnt work.
  3. It doesn't matter what card you have currently (GMA950) just make sure you have a PCI slot on your mobo and it'll work fine.
  4. GMA950 is a chipset... Ultimately you need slots on your motherboard to support add on video cards. The Geforce 5600 is from the way way back, 1st gen DX9 cards. I'm not even sure if there is a PCI-E variant of that card.

    Either way, you need to know what slots you have, and what slots you want to use (PCI-E, AGP, etc).
  5. GF5600 is PCI-only.
  6. What you are looking for is a slot. Determine which slot is your card (PCI or AGP). Ant then determine if your Motherboard has AGP slot

    The 5600 were originally released as AGPs only, but some models were updated to include an AGP to PCI-E bridge, see this from Wikipedia on the FX series:

    "

    The GeForce FX line moved to PCI Express in early 2004 with a number of models, including the PCX 5300, PCX 5750, PCX 5900 and PCX 5950. These cards were largely the same as their AGP predecessors with similar model numbers. To operate on the PCIe bus, an AGP-to-PCIe "HSI bridge" chip on the video card converted the PCIe signals into AGP signals for the GPU.[17]"
  8. My bad.
  9. If the geforce 5600 is agp then not, but if pci-e the yes.

    No biggie. Card numbers are getting confusing. The next gen of AMD cards will have 8000 series of model numbers that reminds me a lot of Nvidia's 8000 series that were awesome in its day.
  11. Geforce 8800 series will be Radeon 8800 series.
