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.

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.

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.

Hello all,

I recently bought an extra 1GB of RAM for my computer after buying a new graphics card (nvidia 8600 GT) as I wanted to be able to play more demanding games. The problem started when Warhammer Mark Of Chaos kept freezing, so I thought I'd upgrade. I got the graphics card, got the RAM installed, but the problem still occurred from time to time. I installed FreeRAM XP which frees up RAM occasionally and this helped a little, but the extra GB of RAM seems to have made no difference.

I read somewhere that although your computer recognises the extra RAM, the motherboard can't use it. Is this true, and how do I tell if my RAM is actually being used or if I've bought a useless piece of kit!?

Thanks.

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?

A:Which SSD is 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.

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.

A:usb not compatible

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

Hello, I currently have a single stick of 2GB RAM in my computer. I googled advice on what to look for to know whats compatible, and found one I like on newegg, however I am alittle lost on my user manual, and am wondering if someone can transfer this to english.

DDR2 533/667/800 SDRAM (240pin/ non-ECC) (for 73U/PV)

DDR2 533/667 SDRAM (240pin/ non-ECC) (for 73V)

2 DDR2 DIMMs (4GB max)

That is what my manual says works for my computer, the RAM I want is compatible with the first one. However it is 800 SDRAM DDR2 and I do not understand if I need to pay attention to that second row? Since it does not have a 800 compatibility, only 533 and 667.

I looked up my model number and all the manufacturer site gave me was:

DDR2 Memory DDR2 533/667/800
DDR3 Memory N/A
Memory Channel Single
DIMM Slots 2
Max Memory (GB) 4

Can anyone let me know if the newegg RAM will work?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122
 

A:RAM compatible?

The 533, 667, and 800 are the speeds it supports, 800Mhz being the fastest supported speed. DDR2 is the type, all DDR2 is 240 pin. Non-ECC means its not Error Correcting Code - its used in servers and workstations but not home system to fix memory errors.

If you want to be sure you buy the correct RAM I wold suggest you visit the website of a memory reseller or manufacturer an use their memory selector to choose the right RAM. Example: http://www.crucial.com/

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.

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?

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...

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?

Maybe this screenie will help?

Hello,

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:

Mainboard:
---- Motherboard ----
- Manufacture: ECS
- Model: Nettle 1.0
- Chipset: NVIDIA MCP61 Rev. A1
- Southbridge: NVIDIA MCP61
- Sensor: ITE 8726
---- BIOS ----
- Brand: Phoenix Technologies, LTD.
- Version: 5.03
- Date: 3/02/2007

CPU:
---- Processor ----
- Name: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+
- Code Name: Brisbane
- Brand ID: 4
- Package: Socket AM2 (940)
- Technology: 65 nm
- Voltage: 1.328

Memory:
---- RAM ----
- Type: DDR2
- Channels #: Dual
- Size: 2048 MB
- Frequency: 251 MHz
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.

Thanks alot!

Zach

Hi, I just upgraded my computer with a new OCZ 120GB SSD.
I wanted to connect my original HDD, two 500GB WD 7200rpm.
However, when I connect all three hard drives on my mobo, SSD does not appear on bios.
If I connect just the SSD, it shows up, and if I connect just HDD, it shows up as well.
However, I cannot find SSD from boot up priority menu if HDD is also connected.
There are only three choices: HDD, DVD Drive, and Floppy disk... which I do not have.
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!

Hello all,

I recently bought an extra 1GB of RAM for my computer after buying a new graphics card (nvidia 8600 GT) as I wanted to be able to play more demanding games. The problem started when Warhammer Mark Of Chaos kept freezing, so I thought I'd upgrade. I got the graphics card, got the RAM installed, but the problem still occurred from time to time. I installed FreeRAM XP which frees up RAM occasionally and this helped a little, but the extra GB of RAM seems to have made no difference.

I read somewhere that althoug your computer recognises the extra RAM, the motherboard can't use it. Is this true, and how do I tell if my RAM is actually being used or if I've bought a useless piece of kit!?

Thanks.

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?
