Hiya, i've asked many questions here but i forgot to ask one question which is regarding my old motherboard, I'm giving my Old motherboard to my sister. and she would like to upgrade the graphics card on it. So i ask you today to see if the motherboard is compatible with the graphics card i will purchase. Thanks in advance.
motherboard: ASUS P5LP-LE
Graphics card: MSI GTX 460 Cyclone OC Edition 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
That GPU may be a little to much for that board. Also requires 200 watts of extra power. You be better of with some a little less.
I have an old Compatibles by Compaq scanner/keyboard that worked with win98, but I can't seem to get it to work with XP.
It's connects thru one of my serial ports. Does anyone know how to or if it can work with XP?
see if they put out drivers for xp
i had to replace my scanner because of no drivers for xp
I've decided to try my hand at building my own PC. I intend it to be a medium - high end gaming computer. I've got everything figured out (at least I hope) I'm just wanting a second opinion about my choice of motherboard and CPU. I'm pretty sure they are compatible, at least in theory, I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with them, or any advice for me. Hey, if you feel like it, recommend something bigger and better. I have a pretty good budget for this (within reason of course, nothing too outrageous).
CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Retail, Socket AM2+, with Fan (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4016668&CatId=3496)
Motherboard : FX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA 750a SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN. S/PDIF, USB 2.0, eSATA, RAID (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3930721&CatId=13)
One big question I have, however, is whether a GeForce 8800GT graphics card with its super long design would fit correctly or at all in that motherboard. The 2nd PCI-E slot has to be the first one used, so I couldn't put it in the top slot. I think it would fit, but not quite sure.
Anyways, thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to have a read through this, and an extra thanks to anyone with any advice or comments.
why can u not use the first slot? the only problem should be with the case. put the mem. in before u put the video card in.
I am computer illiterate, can run & use general programs but dont understand the technical jargon and have the following system (Belarc Advisor Info):- Intel Celeron 667MHz, 20Gb HDD, 256MB pc133 SDRAM, FDD, 52x32x52 CDRW, Windows 98SE, Broadband ADSL. My question today is: Can I upgrade to Windows XP Home Edn? Can I put in a DVD Burner? Can I put in an AV Capture Card? I would like to transfer Analog Video Camera Tapes to DVD including editing etc. Could someone please advise what extra memory, hard drive space, processor speed i would need? Thanks.
Can you upgrade to XP Home?
yes, it will most likely run but will seem pretty slow considering the cpu / amount of ram you have.
Can you install a DVD burner ?
Absolutely, should run just fine with what you have.
Can I put in an AV Capture Card?
Most likely yes, but considering the amount of cpu speed/ram you have, I don't think it will function very well. ( I am not up on video capturing etc..)
any converting of video to DVD require lots of cpu / memory ( the more, the merrier)
I can offer many suggestions of what you should get, but I have no idea what budget you're on.
2.5 Ghz or faster
1 gig memory
80 gig + ( the bigger the better )
I have the ASUS M5A88-M motherboard. I have used 3 different SSD's of size 120GB successfully. I now have had a problem with 3 separate Kingston 240GB SSD's (not seen by computer, or intermittently). ASUS help was minimal, but it was suggested perhaps this motherboard is incompatible with an SSD of that large size.
Any legitimacy to that idea?
But I've never heard of a motherboard making a distinction between an HDD of a certain size and an SSD of the same size. Does the mobo accept 240 and above HDDs?
Have you tried the Kingstons in various ports?
can a motherboard that supports a 64 bit processor that is 3.2 GHZ support a prcoesssor that is the same except 3.0GHZ even if it is not listed in the CPU support area?
the items in question are:

any ideas were i can get it from?
Yeah, www.crucial.com should have what you need. It uses PC133, not PCI (that is a slot on your motherboard). MSI specifically says this about your ram:
Supports six memory banks using three 168-pin unbuffered DIMM.
• Support a maximum memory size of 1.5GB.
• Support ECC(1-bit Error Code Correct) function.
• Support 3.3v SDRAM DIMM.

I would recommend an SSD as your system drive. I am looking at this one for a build I am working on for the very near future. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148362
Hello, I am currently using a Gateway E-4610D Desktop Tower with a Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz
Here are the full specs for anyone that needs it.
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz
Memory (RAM) DDR2 4.00 GB
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 7650 GS 256 Dedicated (Dual DVI Monitors)
Primary hard disk (60GB Total) SSD
Secondary hard disk (1TB Total) HHD
OS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64x
I have had trouble in the past when upgrading or replacing CPU's/Processors and I bought the wrong one so I just want to be positive that this can fit and work on my system so that is why I am asking you guys.
I want to upgrade my processor.
FROM : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz
TO : Intel? Core™2 Extreme Processor X6800 (4M Cache, 2.93 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
My current Motherboard is a : Intel (Mickelson Trail) Q965 Motherboard

Welcome to Seven forums.
From the board specs it says it supports Core?2 Extreme CPUs, so it seems you are good to go. The faster FSB may indeed help the machine bit not the higher clock speed.
You can still buy LGA775 chips?
oki doki guys here we go again. Im pretty sure all this is compatable but my dad is making me check before i go and spend alot of money:
cpu fan: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/120876
graphics card: http://www.mvktech.net/content/view/3368/39/
thanks alot guys
Looks alright to me, although your motherboard can take faster RAM if you're interested: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/129954
It's only £2 more as well
If you want to OC, get the 5000+ Black Edition. It has a smaller nm process than the 6400+ so it will go faster and run cooler. If you don't want to OC and/or don't have any experience in doing it before, go with a regular 6400+. The only difference in the Black Version is the unlocked multiplier which allows you to make it run faster.
Hey can someone check my build please? Thanks!

Well, having a dell dimension 3000 is not the best thing in the world, but ive decided to upgrade it as good as i can. i will be buying a new graphics card any time soon, and as im not that pro with anything regarding computers i would like to know if anyone could help me put a list of things that i have to look at when im getting this new card. i know that only PCI slot card will work for me, so i have only a couple of choices. the 6200, the x1550/1350, the 9950, the fx5200/5600 and the 9100 graphics cards seem to be compatible with my computer. now, what i dont know is what else do i have to make sure of before i buy the card? for example does it matter if the clock speed of the card is different from my FBS? (too bad i couldnt find my FBS properties anywhere )
what im asking basically is what i need to know for the card to ultimately WORK on my machine, not what the best card for my machine is.
Any help is great
P.S: also, if anyone wants to just tell me which of the cards listed above they would buy, or their own choice for a PCI slot, i would appreciate that too. ( games i want to play w/ better settings : Il2 Sturmovik 1946, flying sims, HoMM5 on full high (probably), The Guild 2, oblivion( not the best settings of course), and other games of 2000-2006. nothing uber-leet-new super demanding.)
I can tell you that if you want to get some quality gaming done, you will need a motherboard with a PCI-E slot. It's just impossible to get any decent FPS with your PCI slot limitation. I ran a FX5200 in my Dell 3000. It was a little better but I hate to tell you but you must at least have an agp slot and at this stage of the game you would be shopping for a PCI-E slot. I would also get a larger case to build in because the Dell 3000 is so small and you will need room for your machine to breathe and have a chance at cooling. Don't be bummed. Start shopping and do a lot of studying on each part that you might use. In the end you will be happy instead of frustrated.
I'm looking to get some form of network storage that I can use between my PC, Laptop and PS3. I have been looking at Lacie and WD:
I have heard poor reports about the WD drive though, apparently there's a supscription needed to access the full remote features!
Ideally I would like around 1tb, but 500gig would do for now as long as I can connect additional hard drives (daisy chain) to the NAS box for extra storage/backing up. FTP access would be useful too so I can access my files anywhere.
Have any of you done similar? Can you provide some advice on the best way of doing this?
SimpleTech NAS are very stable. WD not a fan of there devices. They just started to sell 1TB units here cheap for $320.
Do you have a router between the PC, laptop and PS3? Not hard to configure the device to the network.

If you look at my system specs, I have a Dell Inspiron M731R and I have a wuestion to ask.
I'm thinking of getting a SSD that is 500GB or bigger. I have one but I don't know if it will work. Here is the link:
Crucial MX100 512GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal SSD upgrades for Inspiron M731R Laptop/Notebook, CT5400945 from Crucial.com
Is it compatible?
Yes, it's compatible. You should be able to install virtually ANY currently manufactured 2.5" ssd or hdd in that laptop.
The only possible problem would arise if the drive you chose was an older 9.5mm thick drive and the laptop was designed for a 7mm thick drive. In this case though, the drive is 7mm thick and comes with an adapter for 9.5mm so it will work in either. Most drives made today are 7mm thick so they will fit modern as well as older laptops.
I am going to buy this latop from newegg.com http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215663
(It is a link to the laptop on newegg. It is an Acer Aspire V3-551G-8454 Notebook.)
I want to put in 4GB more of RAM so it has a total of eight, however I'm afraid I will buy RAM that isn't compatible with it. I would like to purchase the additonal RAM from newegg.com as well.
Could someone please help it would be greatly appreciated!
Edit: I have found a 4GB RAM stick that I believe is compatible however can anyone confirm this?
That laptop is listed as having 4 GB of RAM, but it doesn't indicate if it has a 1 - 4 GB module or 2 - 2 GB modules.
You also don't know what DDR3 speed the module(s) in that laptop is.
You should wait until the laptop arrives so you can confirm both of the above.
According to the CRUCIAL site for that laptop, the recommended 8 GB(4 GB X 2) matching modules is:
204-pin DDR3 PC3-12800(DDR3-1600), 1.35 volt, CL=11, unbuffered, non-ECC
The 4 GB module that you selected is a slower speed DDR3 PC3-8500(DDR3-1066).
Frys built my system the specs are : MSI x58 platinum SLI Motherboard, Intel core i7 920 2.66 processor, 6GB RAM, nVidia Geforce GTX260, inside an antec nine hundred case.....

I think i currently have 2 HDDs atm, they told me one was for the OS and the other for everything else. this is all a little over my head.
also, is this what you guys would get for a gaming rig?
It is compatible, but the ease in setting it up will depend on how Frys setup the existing system. Why don't you just ask them. They should have no problem in telling you what you want to know. They may think you are going to buy the drive at Frys... no need to tell them, unless they ask.
Hi i need to upgrade some components on my PC, i was wondering if you could tell me if these components are compatible...

Thanks in advance for any help
Here is the support page for that mb;
As you can see the cpu you selected is listed as supported.
The board has 2 pci-e slots so yes you can run those cards.
Yes you need new ram.
FWIW, you are spending money on a new cpu, mb, and ram yet you want to use video cards that are going on 7yrs old. The 8800 was released in late 06 so it is getting very long in the tooth now. Seven years is more than a lifetime in the tech world.
hey im so smart i bought an mp3 player that isnt compatible with windows 7 and im just trying to figure out a way that i can make it work..idk what to do everything including drivers or what not cost money and stuff. im just trying to make this mp3 player work since i spent money on it. is there any way i can make my computer recognize it.
Does the mp3 player have any kind of extension cards, like cameras usually have? (like a SD card for instance)
If so you can just put your songs on that card through a card reader
If not ...it would be much more helpful if you tell us about make and model of that player
There might be drivers out there for Vista or even XP which (with a little luck) you could install in compatibility mode
I am looking to get another 512 MB of ram. I currently have 2 256 MB sticks in my motherboard now. They are DDR PC2700 333MHz. I'm wondering if I have to match the new stick exactly? Do I have to get DDR PC2700 333MHz or can I go with DDR PC3200 400MHz? My motherboard is model is MSI MS-6570.
Most (not all) computers will let you mix and match RAM of different speeds - however the faster RAM will only run at the speed of the slower RAM - so if you get 400mhz and have 333mhz also in the computer, it will all run at 333mhz.
Is this motherboard:
compatible with this CPU:
My main concern is that the motherboard says under Supported CPU, FSB: 800MHz Hyper Transport (1600MT/s). If you look at the CPU under FSB it just says "intergrated into chip". What does that mean/are the two compatible?
Yes, they are compatible, just some fancy footwork in writing the specs.
I just need to know, if these parts are compatible with each other. I am a ''N00B'' pc builder...

I am wanting to add more ram to my system.
I have this motherboard:
MSI Z77A-GD55 Intel Z77 Socket 1155 DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard
I already have this ram:
4GB Mushkin Blackline #996659B (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz 9-9-9-24
I want to add another 4GB is there anything I should know before I buy some?
You should always try to install RAM in matched sets whenever possible. If I'm going to add more memory I always buy the same speed from the same manufacturer.
I just got 2 2gb sticks of Balistix Crucial. Can I still fill my last two dimm slots with my old RAM? 2 1gb sticks of OCZ. They are both 800mhz pc6400. The crucial RAM has CL-4-4-4-12. The ocz RAM is 4-5-5. My mobo guide says to use the RAM with the same CAS Latenc. Which number is the CAS Latency? My bios says its the first number, the 4. So far no problems with this setup but ive only had it for an hour or two.
You need to check the maximum amount of RAM supported by your motherboard.
And yes, the first number in the timings is the CAS latency.
I'm upgrading my current PC and I want to make sure that everything I chose was the best and also compatible. If anyone has any suggestions on what hardware I should get, please feel free to tell me.

So i have a noob question, but im getting quite confused looking at PSU's for my Asus P5Q PRO motherboard.
The manual says it needs a 24 pin main connector and an 8 pin 12v cpu connector.
The pictures on newegg for the PSU's usually just show a picture of the main connector and the cpu power but it just shows a 4 pin, but under "features" it will say either say "1 x 12V(4/8Pin)" or "1 x 12V(P4)" and "1 x 12V(8Pin)" below it.
Do all ATX12V / EPS12V PSUs come with an 8 pin 12v connector or what?
Also when it tells how many rails it has whether it be single or 3 or whatever, what does that mean. I'd like to make sure i get a PSU thats compatable.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Combo deal for reference: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.141834
Power Supply on its own: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182069
Note: normally I don't support reply on what to buy, but just found this on a quick search on your motherboard specs
Never built a system before and seeing as I really need a new pc I thought I'd build one to try and save some money. So what I'm interested to know is this all compatible with eachother? And have I missed anything out?

Looks good, Should works just fine. Checked the ram its on the QVL list.
PS may be a little small but It is a Antech so it is true power and should do okay.
I have a fairly modest AMD athlon 2000+ xp 1.67Ghz, with winXP pro SP2. I have 256MB ram, 80 GB hard drive, DVDRW 8X, Acer LCD Monitor etc etc
Philips Ultimate Edge 5.1 Sound card and currently a very basic Nvidia Riva TNT2 64pro video card.
I intend on upgrading the video card to start with and perhaps get another 256MB ram.
I am looking at a MSI GeForce FX5700U-TD128 (128 MB) AGP Graphic Card. Would this be compatible with my PC? And would all of the above with this card be enough to run PC games such as Fifa and Pro Evolution Soccer? Even slightly older versions of the game?
I am assuming that you need an AGP graphics card, since you listed an AGP card as one of your choices.
However, we would need your motherboard info to be sure.
If your motherboard uses an AGP slot, then yes, the MSI FX5700 AGP you saw would be compatible.
The only factor of compatibility in choosing a video card is the interface type (PCI, AGP, PCI-Express).
However, I would recommend that you upgrade your RAM to at least 512MB.
But to be honest, 1GB would be the minimum for any desktop system these days.
You won't get much better performance with a new video card if you don't upgrade your RAM, because with 256MB, your system is barely getting by, even just running day-to-day tasks.
For most people with a computer that still uses AGP, I would recommend the mid-range GeForce 7600GT AGP. This is a respectable mid-range card that would play most games on medium settings, but it would undoubtedly be bottlenecked if installed on your system.
It's hard to find a decent AGP card that won't be bottlenecked by your CPU...
I just bought a new PC that unfortunately does not have enough RAM (512MB instead of 1GB) to run the OS (Vista basic) it came with effectively.
Here are the specs for the machine.
This is the memory it came with: 512MB PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM memory 2 DIMM (240-pin, DDR2)
Is there any way of telling if this RAM is compatible?
Memory Size 512MB
Memory Speed 533MHz PC4200
Memory Type DDR2
Memory CAS Latency 4
Thanks for the help,

I'm planning on getting the ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard. I was also planning on getting Corsair XMS 1 GB. I looked on the Asus website, and this ram is not listed under compatible ram. Does anyone know if it is? All of the specs (Speed, Pins, Dual Channel) are right. Is there a specific problem with this ram. Thanks.
If you go here:
and search for your motherboard (the same I have by the way), the XMS ram does come up as being compatible.
Is the standard RAM in a Dell Optiplex GX270 compatible with a Dell Intel Pentium 4 processor pc? I want to know if it's possible to transfer that RAM to my old intel pc.

I want to use CPU from a Toshiba A205 in a Toshiba A105. They're both use Intel Centrino Duo processors.
Are they compatible?
How do you know?
You will have to try and find out the socket number for the motherboard in it. You can use a program called CPUZ I think which is free to download. I think this is the way to go at this any one back me up?
I've used TechGuy.org before, but mainly for issues with service programs and more detailed problems on the software side of computers - but as I venture out and upgrade/buy new PC's I seem to have missed a sure-fire way to find out what hardware is compatible with what other hardware. Namely the mobo -> graphics card/RAM interaction. I don't know exactly what I have as far as a Motherboard, but I do have information from a common program in CPU-Z, which is as follows:
---- Motherboard ----
- Manufacture: ECS
- Model: Nettle 1.0
- Chipset: NVIDIA MCP61 Rev. A1
- Southbridge: NVIDIA MCP61
- Sensor: ITE 8726

I was looking to upgrade my NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (128MB) to a higher series (7's or 8's) of the NVIDIA; preferably 256MB-512MB.
Any good deals would be great aswell, but just common knowledge on what I should look for when buying a graphics card would be nice.
Also, any knowledge on what RAM I should buy to be compatible. I assume any DDR2 sticks should do the trick, but I want to make sure before making a purchase.

hello i would like to know if my current gpu and this one would be compatible http://www.amazon.co.uk/Palit-GeForc...eForce+GTX+770 also would this gpu be better or worse than my current one
It'll be compatible as long as you're gonna use a same GTX 770 (eg. sli a EVGA GTX 770 to an ASUS GTX 770)Read other 2 answers
