Preferred Solution: Can a PCI-E 16x card run on PCI-E 4x(video 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.)

Answer: Can a PCI-E 16x card run on PCI-E 4x(video card)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-ExpressQuoteA connection between any two PCIe devices is known as a "link", and is built up from a collection of 1 or more lanes. All devices must minimally support single-lane (x1) link. Devices may optionally support wider links composed of 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, or 32 lanes. This allows for very good compatibility in two ways. A PCIe card will physically fit (and work correctly) in any slot that is at least as large as it is (e.g. an x1 card will work in an x4 or x16 slot), and a slot of a large physical size (e.g. x16) can be wired electrically with fewer lanes (e.g. x1 or x8; however, it must still provide the power and ground connections required by the larger physical slot size). In both cases, the PCIe link will negotiate the highest mutually supported number of lanes. It is not, however, possible for a device to operate in a slot that is physically smaller than it (e.g. an x4 card can't fit in a slot which is physically an x1 slot ? though it could operate in a x4 slot wired with only 1 lane).Hope this goes some way towards answering your question.

I have the Turtle Beach Advantage PCI capture card. When I install it, my system will boot up, but my monitor just stays in sleep mode. Unintalling it results in my monitor working. I figure the capture card is disabling my video card (ATI Radeon X800XL). What to do?

Hey guys, I've been having a problem with my uncle's computer. I've low level formatted his HD because his kid messed up the comp pretty bad. I did a fresh install of XP PRO, but for some reason his PCI cards aren't being recognized.

I've installed the drivers of his mobo, an ECS k7s5a (which I got from the MB's site here) From that list of drivers I've installed the ethernet and agp drivers. I was wondering if I should even install the AGP drivers since his video card is PCI, but I went ahead and did it anyway.

Ok so here's my problem. When I tried to install the sound blaster audigy drivers for his sound card the installer package says "A SB device is not detected." I then go to device manager and both his vid card and sound card are under the "Other Devices" section (the one with the yellow question mark).

As for the video card when I tried to install the drivers from my own comp they basically do nothing, but they don't mess up the display. However when I go to Nvidia and download the supposed "proper" drivers for the card all **** breaks loose. His display is reduced to the lowest settings and barely anything is legible. However the videocard is now being recognized by the device manage as a display driver. But at the same time I can't restore the display back to normal.

Should I just do another low level reformat? I've done it twice now and have gotten no luck. I'm pretty sure the PCI cards aren't being recognized because the ... Read more

Unfortunately, laptop video cards don't use a standard design due to the complexity, so you cannot upgrade it.

Hello to everyone.

I have searched through the forum and have found numerous threads addressing the whole "video card question". However, none of them really seemed to target the real issue of which card was a better value. I just hope this thread can be real and filled with actual fact & evidence, not supportive fanatics defending their card to their last dying breath. Please post with evidence and read all or a majority of the post before replying. Positive feedback is appreciated.

I am looking to build a new computer, and as you could have guessed, the GPU is a very large component in the computer, pricewise and performance wise. This is why I have decided to lay a fairly steep budget on the graphics card, but somehow, I can't arrive at a decision.

Obviously I have targeted the x850 XT and 6800 Ultra. I was even suggested to consider the 6800 GT because of its price and get an SLI board to buy another 6800 GT when the price drops. The 6800GT SLI combination seemed to be the most attractive option, but I am in search of getting a lot of performance very soon.

x850 XT or 6800 Ultra?
So far, I am really veering towards the x850 XT because of its pure golden performance, even though it does not have a very steep advantage over the 6800 Ultra. The x850 XT and 6800 Ultra have around the same price, but based upon online reviews (anandtech, guru3d, pcstats), the x850 XT takes the performance edge even though slightly. Despite its higher grunt, the 680... Read more

Answer:Video Card Dilemma (need a very high performance card: 6800 gt-sli/ultra? x850 xt?)

I think you should get a single 6800GT right now. They can easily be OC'ed to Ultra speeds and above. The XFX SLI'ED 6800GT's currently hold the 3dmark03 record.

Once you buy a single 6800GT, you can save up some money. In a few months you can get another 6800GT or get a new card as your 6800GT in 6 months would be complete crap possibly.

And the x850XT does take a lead on directx, but Nvidia closely trails. And on opengl, the 6800GT dominates.

I see a lot of T400-T500 users asking how to upgrade graphics card and being told that the card is integrated to the motherboard and cannot be replaced. Most answers stop there leading one to believe either you can?t use whatever software requires more GB or you must get a new computer all together.

Hi TechSpot folk, and thanks for in advance for anyone who can help me.

I've bought myself a new video card yesterday; HIS Radeon X1650 Pro 512mb IceQ, AGP. I went ahead to install it, and I get no picture after booting up.

I am receiving a signal to the monitor (I am not getting a "check signal" message) but no image comes to the PC. I went to put my old card in which is a Gigabyte 128mb 9600 Pro, and it now it doesn't work either!!!

Both cards are receiving power as theirs fans are chugging along.

I had also purchased a 1gig stick of RAM to complement my new video card, so I set my PC up the way it was before the attempted installation of the new card. Still nothing happening.

Current components of PC are:

P4 2.8ghz (D865PERL)
Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro 128mb
512mb RAM
DVD and Lite-On burner
 

Answer:New video card install no good, now older card doesn't work either

I don't know about the 9600 Pro but the X1650 Pro should have a power connector on it. Possibly a floppy drive type connector. Was that plugged in?

Ram: 4.00 GB
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1

My problems started about a week ago when I came to my computer in the morning and found that the screen was crackling and fuzzy. I eventually found out I was having nlvddmkm.sys issues. The games I normally like to play wouldn't work at all. I tried a bunch of workarounds and the only one that worked was underclocking my Video Card using EVGA Precision Utility. This was only partially successful and I was still having issues with graphics glitches. So I bought a new Video Card: Radeon HD 4670.

Before installing it I started my computer in safe mode and used both CC Cleaner and Driver Sweeper to remove old graphics drivers.

When I started up the computer and ran the setup program from the CD to install drivers everything seemed to be good and my graphics were fine but... I had no sound.

This morning I was able to get sound but... only from my onboard Realtek Sound. My recently purchased X-Raider 7.1 Sound Card was showing in the Device Manager but when I tried to run it's setup to install correct drivers I kept getting a message telling me to the device was not plugged in.

Hi. I recenly purchased a Dell Dimension 3000 running XP. I connect to the internet using a Linksys Wireless-G (model WMP54GS). That works just fine. However, I got a new video card, a GeForce FX 5500 and when it's installed the wirless card doesn't really work. It struggles to find the network. If it does find it it generally won't connect. Once in a while I can get it to connect but that's not very common. Once I remove the video card the network works fine. I've tried installing a variety of drivers for both PCI cards. I've tried moving the cards to different slots and the results are always the same. Any ideas as to why this would happen?

Thanks,

I'm adding a video card (a Geforce 9400GT 512MB pci-e 2.0 to a Dell Optiplex 320 computer. This should have been a 10-15 minute job but I've spent a good 8 hours or so trying to resolve this issue.

The computer had on-board integrated video so I disabled those drivers, turned off the computer, plugged in the new video card into the pci-e slot, fired it up, video showed up while plugged into the video card so I logged into windows and then tried to install the drivers. The disc that came with the video card says "No supported hardware is found in your system." I downloaded the most recent drivers from the NVidia site and it said the same thing. I checked the current video adapter being used and it said "VGAsave" so I looked in device manager and there's an ! next to "PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge." I figure this is the problem and why the video card isn't recognized so I look at the properties for that and it says "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)"

I've done a lot of research and reading but I can't find any solution to this. I tried to uninstall the integrated video and completely get rid of the drivers using a driver sweeper program and that didn't work. The only setting in the BIOS for video is to either have "Auto" or "Onboard". I have it set to Auto but there is no way to disable the onboard video card within the BIOS. I've u... Read more

I have a computer running Windows XP SP3 on an HP Pavilian a1430n stocked with an integrated Video Card and Sound Card. I'm trying to upgrade my systems video card to a newer GeForce 210 which works great with the computer once its drivers are installed. The problem though is that my integrated sound card stops working and Windows begins asking asking for four "high definition audio bus"'s. The original drivers are in my computers recovery but for some reason, the sound driver is unrecognised by the device manager and even updated drivers from the manufactures (HP, Realtek) don't do the trick. Funny thing is, when I remove the new video card and revert back the the original integrated video port, the sound card begins to work again as if nothings been changed. I've tryed multiple times the remove and reinstall the hardware but get the same outcome. (even tryed to introduce a non-integrated sound card and still no luck). So if anyone has any clue as to what the fix might be, I'm all ears.

Answer:Install New Video Card and Sound Card Stops Working

Hello,
I'm going to try to give as much detail as possible but I didn't write down any of the errors unfortunately.
I had a freeze on my computer as I was switching my sound card (a pretty old sound blaster live gamer) from entertainment mode to game mode. I had to reboot as nothing else was working. When the computer came back up it was in VGA mode. I looked at system manager, showed an exclamation mark next to the video card and the sound card (although it was displaying their names). I tried uninstalling and re-installing, and nothing will do the trick. After I installed the video card drivers it gives me some kind of error, like its not identifying the card correctly, it thinks the driver is from a different version of radeon hd. I had this a while back and fixed it by reinstalling windows (which at the time I needed to to anyway, so I didn't pay much attention to it). I really would hate to have it reinstalled again as I would have to install a lot of software that I currently have on it.
Any thoughts? I didn't create a restore point, I tried restoring, it won't help. Any thoughts? I'll give you more info later if you request it, this is all I can think of from the top of my head (and I don't have the computer next to me at this time since I'm at work).

Answer:video card/graphic card reboot problem

boynamedanurag Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about booting and video card problems and wanted to help. So, if I understand what you're saying, you reinstalled Win7 and the PC boots OK, right? But when you then install a video driver and reboot, it does not boot, right? My guess is that you have one of the old DV6 laptops that has two video chipsets, something called Switchable Graphics.  And the problem with that is that only the HP OEM video drivers will work on that laptop.  IF you install other ones, such as the ones you get from AMD or Nvidia, they will NOT work -- which sounds like what is happening to you. What DOES work is restoring your PC using HP Recovery Media because that will contain the HP OEM drivers.  Media. This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry... Read more

I will be installing a PCI video card on a HP and I need to know how to install this.
I know you will need to go into the Bio and disable the onboard display drivers. but i dont know how to do that will someone help me.

Thank You,
Mark
 

Answer:Installing a PCI Video Card and disabling onboard card

I am almost pretty sure that your hp should auto detect the new video card and default to it. At least that has been the case in everyone that i have installed. try that first. Just remember to connect your video cable to that card after you install it and not the original on board video card.

I have a Dell E520, and well, it sucks. But i'm not buying a new computer. So!, I have decided to just upgrade it. I want to het the ASUS Radeon HD 4870, but with that, I also need a new PSU; and on top of all of that, I need a flexible riser card!

So heres the links to the three things I want/need to get.

PSU:

HD 4870:

Flexible Riser Card:
http://www.orbitmicro.com/global/pe...exibleextenderforpciexpressx16bus-p-4354.html

Now what i'm planning to do is replace my 305Watt Dell PSU with that one, stick the riser card in my PCIe slot, connect the HD 4870 to the riser card, and then ...???...!!!...Win?

Anyone know if this setup should work?
 

Answer:Will This Video Card / PSU / Riser Card Setup Work?

What would you need the riser card for? I see plenty of space in the case from the looks of it but even if you do use the riser card, the video card may be blocking airflow from and to the CPU. Check the dimensions to be sure IMO.

Otherwise, everything else looks great.

Windows 7 Ultimate RC build 7100 is what you should be running. There are no service packs for pre-release OS's from Microsoft. Did you install Windows 7 on this Dell or did someone do it for you? Your installed memory is much too low for Vista, not to mention Windows 7. If your system won't run Vista properly, DO NOT install Windows 7 pre-release

How did you disable the onboard video? I would bet you need to go into the bios and re enable the card because that had to be where you disabled it and do not disable any video cards in Device Manager. With newer systems, there really is no need to disable onbaord video as bios settings usually allow agp or pci-express when installed or onboard when none installed.

So I've owned this alienware m17x r3 (Intel Core i7-2670QM // Radeon HD 6870M // 4 GB DDR3) for about 5 months now, and just recently it has started crashing immediately on startup, either when it reaches the login page for windows or soon after.

I've tried installing several different versions of AMD's drivers for the HD 6870M I have but none work. I've run a system diagnostic test through advanced startup options and there are no errors.

It works fine with no drivers installed or if I boot in safe mode, but I am at my wit's end here trying to get my system back in to working order.

Hi everyone,
I bought a computer at an auction (ex Government computers) a few weeks ago. According to the info it has a "sound card" and a "video card" no further info on what ones.

I had to format the computer from scratch & reality is i have NO IDEA what i'm dong with this stuff! anyway i've managed to get it up & running with windows 98 (previously it was running on windows 2000 pro, it has a licence for that but no disk & i don't have a disk so had to install win98 that i have)

I have a picture on the screen, but everything is HUGE and i cant' change it & also very few colours. in the control panel, display i have the choice of 2 colours or 16 colours but that's it & screen area won't change from "less"

Under display it says L1510S on Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA). L1510S is my LG monitor i know. i've tried installing the drivers from that, following the instructions on the software, choosing "have disk" etc but that hasn't changed the display.

On the thingy inside the computer that sticks out the back & the monitor attaches to it says
Holtek HT27C512-70
A141K0532-2
there's other info too, but that's what i got results on when i put it in google so i'm guessing that's what i need. anyway i also found drivers for that on the internet & tried installing them, but that hasn't helped either

First of all, hello!
I have kind of a big problem here. I have an nVidia Geforce GT220 video card and a Creative SB Audigy SE sound card (PCI)
They both work fine under windows XP, however, on windows 7 I have a problem with a conflict. The thing is, the video card has integrated Audio (for HDMI) so my sound card doesn't show up in device manager at all. If after a clean install of Windows I remove the GPU and restart, Windows will see my Sound card and I can install and use it, however, after restarting to finish the sound card install and plugging my GPU back in, as there is already an audio driver installed (The creative one) windows doesn't recognize my GPU anymore (not showing up in device manager, can't install the driver because it is not detected as connected)
After running device manager with set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 I can see that my GPU is in the device manager list, but it is listed as not connected to the PC (Error 45). I contacted nvidia, they told me to contact Creative, I did so, and they told me to talk to nVidia. I am sure this is a windows 7 problem, considering they both work just fine under windows XP. Is there any way I can disable this device priority thing under windows 7 so I am able to use both my cards?
Sometimes, after I restart, windows would see my video card and stop seeing the sound one, then other times it would see the sound one and stop seeing the GPU. It's very annoying.
Thank you in advance!
Best regards,

Answer:Sound card and video card conflict, only on w7

You would be better off using the Integrated VIA HD audio on the motherboard. It is newer and just as good as the old SoundBlaster. But, if you want to use the SoundBlaster, make sure the integrated audio is disabled in the BIOS so it does not conflict. Also, make sure you are using the correct SoundBlaster driver for Vista/Windows 7.

The HDMI audio should not conflict and should not set itself as default audio playback device unless there is an HDMI cable connected.

Answer:Networking card & Video card conflict ???

Depending on the motherboard specifications, your conflict may result in a "shared" IRQ. Some PCI slots try to share resources with others.

For example. On my board I have an integrated sound card right in the motherboard. But I prefer to run my Soundblaster Live card. So I need to install the sound card in PCI slot #3 because the integrated sound and slot#3 share the same resources and IRQ. Then I go into my BIOS settings and disable the internal sound.

If your Network card is in slot#2 try moving it down to PCI slot #4 or 5. These are typically used to install modems. Reboot your system and see if the conflict still exists.

A video card and a graphic(s) card are the same thing. What you have now is an integrated graphics card. Integrated graphics cards have terrible performance.

Answer:Capture card/video card pc hung up

Pinnacle is one of the best and most expensive,
but i have Winfast and no problems with Cable TV and ATI AGP video.

What type of TV input are you useing ?
Have you set your Region ?
Have you set your option for Audio Device and Video device properly ?
Check all your Tools and options and do a channel scan.

For comparison.

I have an old Dell Dimension computer running Windows XP. I bought it new in 2003. It's been running fine until the video card began to go out. I bought a new ATI Radeon card (AGP) to replace the old Radeon 9800. The new card fit the slots OK, but it didn't have a receptacle for a cable that attached to the old card -- so I had to leave the cable unattached. But the video works fine. Didn't even need to load the software that came with the card.

That fixed the video problem. But something weird is going on now. The sound (not system sound, but any other sound) cuts out after an hour or so. After startup, the Control Panel recognizes my audio card (Sound Blaster Live! 5.1) and everything is fine. But after an hour or so, it no longer recognizes any audio device. I have to reboot the bring back the sound.

The drivers for the Sound Blaster are from late 2002. I tried downloading new drivers from the Creative website, but when I try to install them, I get an error message saying the computer can't recognize any Sound Blaster driver (and this is even when the sound is working OK).

Appreciate any comments. I don't know why replacing the video card would produce this problem!
 

Answer:Connection between video card and sound card?

What cable? The monitor cable?
If you replaced your PCI video card with an AGP card, you have to make sure that you put it in an AGP slot otherwise it will not work properly.
But I am still confused about this Cable not being plugged in thing.

My son had a Verto G-force FX 128 Mb pci Video card that he no longer used. I was told that adding this to my computer would free up some memory and make my pages display quicker and better.

How do I disable the internal graphics card?

I've installed the new vc, but have to plug the monitor into it's normal serial port to display the desktop after it boots up. When connected to the serial port on the vc it will only display the www.dell.com bootup screen. If I unplug it from the vc and plug it into the normal monitor serial on the back of the pc everything is normal.
 

Answer:New video card. Need help disabling internal card please!

You have to access the BIOS as the machine is starting up, on many machine this is the DEL or F1 key. Once you are in the BIOS setup look through the screens and you will find an option that allows you disable onboard VGA.


Once you have done this, saved and exited the machine will restart and then treat your new card as the only one. Of course once in Windows you need to install the latest drivers, (available online), and you're good to go


Edit: Start with the monitor plugged into your onboard port, once you have made the BIOS changes, and saved turn the machine off and reattach the monitor to the new vid card and restart

I've got an hpCompaq d530SFF (it's a small box) with a low-profile Silicon Image, Sil 164 Carrera ADD Card for the Intel 845G chipset plugged in to the only AGP slot in the box. I think I can replace it with a card that is more suited to CAD and that has at least 128Mb of memory.

I don't know a lot about this stuff, but I'm guessing the Sil 164 card just provides a DVI output and not any graphics processing?

If that is the case, if I replace the board, I'm assuming I would have to disable the mobo graphics processor?

Any suggestions for a replacement board? (BTW, it was suggested that the nvidia TI4600 was a good choice, but I think it is discontinued and it wouldn't fit in the box anyway.)

Thanks!

Sometimes I think I know more than I do, and boy I make a mess. The MB on my pieced together computer went out a couple of weeks agos. The tech support at my work put a P133 MB in. The also added a second hard drive. They added a new hard drive to install win 95 and and office so that they could save all my files on my older and larger hard drive. When I got the system home was not able to get my sound card to work. It would detect it at the start up then when I would direct it to the driver that I downloaded from the internet it would say that the hardware could not be found. It also keep detecting a internal modem that was removed, because I know have a new external modem. It also has not picked up the correct divers for my video card and only lets me run in 2 or 16 colors. I have tried removing the devices in devise manager and rebooting my system, but I get the same problem. I have tried to removed everything with a yellow ? or ! and reboot and that just seems to make a bigger mess. I have tried disabeling PNP in CMOS (I am not sure if I am doing it right) and I still get the same mess. I have tried everything several times with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions. My dad and I basically built the computer, since her recently passed I don't have that support and the guys at work are so busy, it will take weeks if I bring it back in for them to work on.

Thanks
 

Answer:Help, I've lost my sound card, video card & more

what you can do is take all the add on devices out (except the video card,hard drive) and turn on the computer and see what happen. (also remove all add on device in the device manager) and see what happen. What you want to do after that is install one at a time and reboot everytime after that.

Answer:Video Card Disrupting Sound Card?

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card, sound card, chipset, etc.

Also, if you want, remove the video card, and check if the noise dissapears. My Radeon card makes an "electronic" noise, that dissapears when I remove the card.

I have already posted regarding my problem, but this is a new thread because the problem still exists. The old thread can be read here.

Since that thread someone has told us that this computer doesn't actually have a video card, only a graphics card.

Anyway, those problems had been persisting every time the game was played, and yesterday we bought a new expansion pack for the sims and figured this could possibly fix the problem, but it still happens. We also downloaded new drive routes and catalyst control center for the graphics card as that was suggested for the game. These are from ATI and the graphics card we have is RADEON X850 Series.

We're not even certain that the problem is the Graphics Card and are not confident enough to go poking around in the computer to try things, so does anyone have ANY suggestions for other problems this could be and what we can do to try to fix it?

If you really don't feel like getting and installing the correct drivers you can pay somebody gobs of money to do it for you.

If you change your mind you can get the original chipset, networking, sound, graphics, etc., drivers off your Drivers/Resource CD, or get the most recent ones from Dell's web site. For the latter use your Service Tag for easier searching.

Are these the same thing? I have an old Dell (as you can see), but I like it. I was told that I could improve its performance by adding a video card. When I look them up, I see pictures of odd-looking devices that in no way resemble a "card." I can only find 2 that will work with this computer. Does that seem right?

Answer:Video card vs graphic card?

"Video Card" and "Graphics Card" are the same thing.

There are 4 different versions of the 745. A "minitower", a desktop, a Small Form Factor and an ultra small form factor. Which one do you have? It makes a difference for a video (graphics) card.

The minitower will take a PCIe type video card. With the small power supply that can limit you (if this is the model you have). The others versions are even further restrictive as they will require "low profile" type cards.

Hi. I just recently upgraded and bought a Gigabyte 8Ik1100 motherboard and a Pentium 4 2.8C.. Huge improvement from my old 1.5A.
I am wondering what I should get next, sound or video card? I'm currently running a Radeon 9000 64mb AGP 4x and onboard sound.. So my video card is pretty outdated and the onboard sound isn't as good as I wish.

Would a sound card improve game performance ? I'm a musician too, so I do a lot of recording and mixing and I also do a lot of video editing.

And as for a video card, I don't need top of the line, just something that would perform better than my current one. I've noticed the real genuine cards made by ATI or Nvidia are a bit out of my price range.. Are any of the cheaper copy cards good? Thank you.

Answer:Sound Card or Video Card?

My 2 cents...

A new video card would definitely improve your gaming and video editing. I guess it comes down to what is more important: gaming, video editing, or music recording.

I am using an xFx GeForce FX 5200, 128MB, AGP 8x. It was very reasonably priced ($60 4 months ago...might be cheaper now), and it does the trick. I don't game very much, but I do a lot of video editing and it works great for that.

I found out that I don't have an AGP Video slot in my computer after I wanted to get a video card for games, and someone told me that PCI isn't as good as AGP, since AGP is newer and better/faster, etc. But is AGP a lot better? Because AGP has that x4, etc. thing, and does that mean that PCI doesn't, that PCI can't accelerate the graphics? And if it can't, then is there a point in getting a PCI card altogether? Also, I was wondering, is a video card better than RAM being used for Video Memory? Because I have 320 MB of RAM, and that's more than enough to be used for 16MB of Video Memory.
 

Answer:What is the difference between an AGP Video Card and a PCI video card?

Yes, basically the bus speed of an AGP card can transfer data faster than a PCI card. An analogy would be a pipe which pumps water through. A smaller pipe = PCI, a larger pipe - AGP.

AGP is better (Generally speaking) than a PCI card, only if your system can make full use of it. It is pointless to have an AGP 4X or 8X with low amounts of RAM, PC100 RAM, 5400RPM HD. (Water pipe analogy).

In regards to Video Memory and normal RAM, it does make a difference. They are both used to do different things. Video Ram is suited to drawing textures, or storing textures of games which enables the game to run better. It is also used to help perform specific instructions of that video card.

Note: Wait next year, 3rd or 4th quarter. It looks like it will be pointless to have an AGP card.

Also its 4:30AM here, i didnt get into too much detail

Can you use a video capture card and a normal video card (i.e. my geforce 6600GT) at the same time? Any help would be great.

Thanks
 

Answer:Video Capture Card and Video Card

Why, yes in fact you can....in fact, it'd be better for the video capture card if you did, since it wouldn't have to process your monitor's video. However, there is one thing that you do have to think about. Slots. I don't know what kind of board you are using, but there is only one AGP slot on my mobo, and the rest are all pci. now, if you have a pci card, and an agp card, then you're good to go (the graphics card should be the AGP, not the video capture card) but if you get a board with a few pci Exp. x16 slots, you should be able to get a pair working like lighting. Try finding one of the SLI boards, and doing some research on them. I know you can enable/disable, SLI mode, but I'm not sure if that enables or disables the second pci-e x16 slot.
