Preferred Solution: xp compatible

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.
 

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.

Hi All

Quick qn: I presently have an external 7 port USB 1 device connected to one of my USB ports which works just fine. However, believe it or not I often now find myself unpluging certain devices etc and really want them all connected. I have a new mp3 player for my recent b'day and have no free slots. So, the qn is this - is it OK to purchase a USB 2 7 port hub and connect this to one of my USB ports to expand connectivity etc???

A:USB 2 compatible with USB 1 ..???

I think it too will need to be connected to a USB 2 card to run at the faster speed. As they are supposed to be backwards compatible, I would think that you can connect it, you just won't see the 2.0 advantage.

it is probably a standard ATX PSU (it should say it's form factor on the side label).

Why do you think you need a new PSU anyways? just pop in the card and see if your PSU can handle it.

if it cant, or you just want replace the compaq PSU with quality PSU, then I would recommend Antec or Enermax

You need to check the maximum amount of RAM supported by your motherboard.

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.

There's no 1800MHz stated, does this mean the RAM won't work (or will work but limited usage)

A:Compatible RAM? Help please!

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).

A:Are these compatible?

Here is the support page for that mb;
http://us.msi.com/product/mb/FM2-A85XA-G65.html#/?div=Overview
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.

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.

However, when I connect all three hard drives on my mobo, SSD does not appear on bios.

However, I cannot find SSD from boot up priority menu if HDD is also connected.

Is there a problem with compatibility? Or did I do anything wrong?
I didnt mess with any RAID or anything (I dont even know how to.)
Please help! Thank you

A:SSD and HDD not compatible?

You have to be sure that your BIOS sees the drives. If BIOS can't see them, Windows won't see them either.

Once that is done, make sure all your cables are securely attached.
That might seem obvious, but i messed with my brother's computer for nearly half an hour before checking the cables.
Doh! The data cable was uselessly dangling in there.
Amazingly, it worked fine once I hooked it up- ha!

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?
Thanks.

A:SSD Not Compatible?

Very peculiar.

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?

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.

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.
 

A:Compatible?

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 )

good luck
Swiper

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.

Hello all.
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
Regards
Kirill


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.)
 

A:Compatible or not?

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.

Is this motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813152053

compatible with this CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16819103539

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?
 

A:Compatible?

Yes, they are compatible, just some fancy footwork in writing the specs.

Hi All

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:

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/128649/rb/0
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/127255

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?
 

A:NAS compatible with PS3?

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.

A:New with CPU's Is this Compatible?

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?
