A Little Fitting Issue :)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, my first post. OMG. Dont know how to say it.
On my old board, a Gigabyte GA-8IPE775 Pro - yes bag the AGP all you want - i was doing some pretty serious gamin, like playing stuff like ETQW, BF2142, Doom 3, TDU, GoW, etc. I had a P4 3.00Ghz, 7300GT 512MB and 2GB RAM. This was like a month ago. It was a shared computer between the family so any errors with it were hung on me without any questions. I burnt out the
Intel ICH6 (or 7 i dont remember correctly) chip when doing a case change. How i dont know.

I got a new computer for me so that i wouldnt wreck my parents.
Its an ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus with a PCI-E 16x
I have AMD Athlon x2 4200+ 2.20Ghz (already tried to OC it, the multiplier is at max 11) 2GB Ram and a 512MB integrated 6150SE VGA thing. I can play BF2142 and GoW and ETQW all on low with good frames. Im looking for a 9600GT to jazz up my PC. Ill be able, hoepfully to kill the games on mid-high settings and experience it like its meant to be.

First of all a summary of my post:
-Will the GeForce 9600GT work in my system? In the manual all it says is "1x PCI Express Slot, nothing about 1.1 or 1.0a or w/e.
-Secondly, next to the PCI-E (black) slot, there is the BIOS battery and also a few capacitors. Now im wondering if the housing of the 9600GT's will bump against the capacitors? Also in line with the PCI-E slot is the IDE slot. The 9600GT is something like 22.8CM. So im wondering basically if this card will work in my system and if it will fit. Could someone please look for me? I havent found anything satisfying on the net. So maybe from overclock's experienced members knowledge they would know?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A summary of my SPECS:
-Mobo: ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus
-2GB RAM (2x1GB DDR2) @ 667MHz
-AMD Athlon x2 4200+ 2.20GHz
-NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE 512MB (shared with RAM)
-(in the future)GeForce 512MB 9600GT

Another Summary:
-Will a GeForce 9600GT fit in my motherboard, due to the capacitors next to the slot?
-Will my motherboard support this card. Manual specifies it as PCI-E 16x.
-Will the IDE connector obstruct my card?
-Are there any other alternatives? Like a 9600GT without a housing? I've seen an ASUS 9600GT with the "gladiator" heatsink. It doesnt have a case.

Yeah, you should be good. And welcome to the modern wave of computer tech.


(Oh, and quick question. How old are you? If you don't want to answer, you don't have to, I'm just wondering.)

Thanks for the replies. I'm sure it will work too. My remaining concern is if my PCI-E x16 slot will work with PCI-E 2.0 cards, i've read some problems that nForce 4 series chipsets have problems with being compatible with things. Sound cards among them. Oh well and to the guy who asked for my age ( im sorry dont remeber your name as im typing this relpy), im 15. Are you shocked at the fact that my parents control me so much? Or do i know alot for a kid my age?

One more thing. How do you get that fancy washed out system specs thing? I hate typing mine in normal text lols?

Well, thanks anyway.
