Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

Q: Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

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.

Preferred Solution: Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

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.)

A: Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

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'm looking to put more RAM into my laptop; I wasn't sure if this should be posted here or in another place.. my apologies if I've put it in the wrong place.

I have a Gateway Laptop, model ML6720. I currently have two sticks of RAM, 512MB each, the info for them is: 512MB 2rX16 PC2-5300

I found a 1GB stick I'd like to replace the 512's with, the info is: Crucial 1GB 200-pin DDR2 SO-DIMM 667 (PC2 5300) (laptop RAM).

Before I make the purchase, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the Crucial stick would work well with my machine? I've never replaced the RAM on my laptop before, so I'm nervous about it.

I went onto the Gateway website and tried to match the info with the new RAM as best I could; I think I got it right. I'm just looking for a little more input.

Many thanks in advance

It will work but it is recommended to have two identical ram modules... Make sure you can return it if it causes problems.

i noticed that having a firewall is very important & is a necessity now a days. i'm average in computer knowledge; so i'd like to know what is the best or most compatible firewall with bit torrent client applications such as azureus? i use azureus & sometimes uTorrent.

best or most compatible - meaning which will not slow down the performance of my machine in terms of cpu & memory usage; that'll not conflict with azureus or uTorrent. and especially firewall that'll not be noisy & annoying or just doesn't keep on prompting for warning & asking permission or anything in that manner while azureus is downloading.

by the way, please kindly move this topic if it shouldn't be posted here.

A:Compatible Firewall Question

You are quite right about having a firewall and using it. I might suggest Sygate Personal Firewall, since it allows you to manage permissions by application, and is light on resources. Almost all firewalls will at the very least, prompt on the first use, but you can usually tell them to "always allow" the application access.You can find a link to the free download in this BC pinned topic:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.htmlRegards,John

A:Question about theCorsair CX 600 compatible?

If you purchased a gtx 660, I assume you intend to game with the system. The cx line from corsair is NOT for gaming systems. It is ok for a basic build ie running onboard/onchip video, running office, email, etc. It is just not up to the stress of gaming. Corsair does not mfg their own pw supplies. The cx line is mfg by ctw [maker of oem stuff] The "real" corsairs ie HX, TX, AX are mfg by seasonic [maker of very high end stuff.

With a cx corsair, you have the equivalent of a dell or hp pw supply.

If you are asking if it will fit, your case uses a standard atx pw supply so yes it will fit however it is NOT recommended for gaming.

Hi,
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.

Thanks
 

A:Compatible Ram

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.

Hi, I recently updgraded an old T61 with a Sandisk 128gb SSD (the "PLUS" model). It worked flawlessly for about a month when the error "2100: hdd0 initialization error" started to occur at every startup. As it is my mother's computer I was only able to check a few things from distance, it may be a connection issue or something simple.. But anyway, from what I read it is more likely an incompatibilty with the SSD, so I wanted to know if there are certain hard drives that are compatible for sure, preferably not as old as the laptop itself ( so other than the ones originaly shipped with it). I installed the middleton BIOS on the laptop. I really don't care about storage capacity, 7200rpm would be ideal though. Thanks for you help !Gab










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Compatible HDD with T61

Welcome to the forum.
 
This could be a compatibility issue but since the SSD did work flawlessly at first, it's more likely to be an early hardware failure. One way to confirm this would be to put the SSD in an external USB enclosure and then see if it works from that. If it works then there's a compatibility issue. If you still get error messages then the drive has failed and you should return it for a new one.
 
If it does turn out to be a compatabilty issue, go to Sandisk's website and see if they have firmware upgrades for this drive. Make sure you're using the most current firmware level.
 
Generally the SSDs that people on this forum recommend most often are made by Samsung, Crucial and Intel.

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.

2- Does it really matter if i switch the Asus A78M-E for the Asus H61M - K?
3- Is my power supply (CX430) enough for this build? if so, what kind of power supply do i need? because they are very confusing to me.
4- Can i use my hard drive that i use at the moment with a lot of data (it's not old, and doesn't have any defects) or should i use a completely new hard drive (it's kind of the same, but never used) Thanks.
 

A:Is this compatible?

Hey mate,

The motherboard (H61M-K) will not be compatible with the CPU (AMD A6-7400K). I think it might be better if you give us some information on what games you are wanting to play because the parts and budget you are looking at is going to have some big limitations. On average for playing recent/new games these days I'd recommend 8GB of RAM, Quad Core CPU, Graphics card varies on what you want to play the power supply you listed is a good brand (Corsair) and the 80Plus Bronze is okay.

If your current board has AMD video, yes it'll work.  If you now have Intel, you'll also need to replace the heatsink assembly (the one for Intel won't fit the AMD and vice-versa) and if you have a 65W power adapter, you'll need 90W or better for the AMD board.

I bought this HDD: CAVIAR GREEN 2TB 64MB 7200 SAT
It arrived to day, but when I put it in, it couldn't be found in either windows 7 or BIOS. I tried using the cables for my primary HDD, it still couldn't find it. So it's definitely the HDD. Is it possible that my motherboard isn't capable of recognizing/using the device? I got my computer 3 years ago, however I'm not sure the make/model of my motherboard. Or is it just a faulty HDD? Thanks.

A:HDD not compatible?

I've been having some problems with my computer concerning speed and with a very short search I have found the problem; My computer has only one GB of RAM. That explains it!

In search of new RAM cards for my computer, I have stumbled upon this one on ebay that might work. I just want to get the confirmation from you guys.

Those RAM cards: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kingston-4G...1380317?pt=US_Memory_RAM_&hash=item3a7636685d

Hurry! I only have about 5 days until it's sold!

To assist you, Here is my computer now:
It only has 2 RAM slots and only works with DDR types of RAM.
It has a very decent CPU speed at about 2.5 GHz.
I strongly believe that the PIN size needed for the cards is 184 (I looked it up).

Some questions that I need answered:
What is the maximum allowed RAM on this computer?
Is the RAM compatible?
Is this a good amount to pay for it, or is there another, cheaper, way?
Should I buy a new computer, or just stick with this one?

In advance, Thank you for your help!

A:Is this RAM compatible with my PC?

There is not enough information. We need to know which computer you have or at least which motherboard you have in the PC.

Many motherboards only support 1GB per memory slot. There is no way of knowing if your motherboard will support 2GB per slot, without first looking up the information.

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?
 

A:compatible?

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...

Hi,

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?

Thanks.
 

A:New compatible ram?

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.
