Thread: Graphics Card Help!

  1. #1
    Hello, I am bought "Radeon 9200 128MB DDR 8X AGP" By Gigabyte
    I am going to install it by myself.

    Is this okay to put Radeon in this motherboard
    But the motherboard Noted: The AGP slot only supports NIVIDA 4XAGP cards.

    Elite K7SEM << motherboard
    AGP 4X
    (built in) SIS730 3D CARD
    256 MB SDRAM
    ==================
    AMD ATHLON 2000 + XP << Processer
    1.66 ghz

    I am worried that it will f*** up my computer?
    Help me please&#33;

    I don&#39;t think that it will damage your board, but it will only use 4X as that is all your board supports...

    Yeah, clocker&#39;s correct, its backwards compatible. It just will run at 4x instead of 8x. Nothing to worry about, won&#39;t damage anything.

    To be honest I highly doubt that a motherboard can somehow only support Nvidia Grahpics cards, so just go ahead and install it, and see what happens.

    Im sure it will all go fine.

    yeah they probably have a contract with Nvidia to say that

    Haha you have a good point their... you have a good... point... but I have one more problem... i have a built in SiS730 Graphics card, and It said to use the BIO&#39;s
    to disable it BEOFORE you install your graphics card...but I dont have a clue how to go there... something about restarting while pressing delete for 10 seconds?

    PS So the elite motherboard K7SEM with 4xAGP can handle 9200 8xAGP? alright guys&#33; keep those responeses coming in&#33;

    Just click "restart system" and after Windows logs off and the screen goes black, press "delete".

    Welcome to the magic world of BIOS.
