Geforce 8800 GT 512, looking for compatible MoBo.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I recently got a Geforce BFG 8800 GT 512mb gfx card, and found the x16 PCI-E slot in my motherboard isn't large enough to fit the gfx card in (my current motherboard is: ASRock 939Dual-SATA2), and was wondering if there is any good enough MoBo's around there which would be compatible with both my gfx card, aswell as my Processor (AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+)

Thanks in advance.

P.s. Or is there a chance I can put it into where my current gfx card slot is at the moment, and get it working? Because when I tried before, it came with an error when installing, saying that it isn't compatible. Or is there a chance that my gfx card isn't compatible with my Processor and infact it was the PCI-E slot I was putting it in? (on the side of my motherboard it says "PCI-Express" next to a yellow card slot, and under it is the current slot I have my old-graphics card in, which fits the 8800 GT in perfectly).

It's a bit hard to follow exactly what you mean but are you trying to run your cards in SLI? I would most definitely take out your old card and pop the new one in to test for functionality. As far as size goes, a PCI-E slot is a PCI-E slot and should be no problem to fit in any compatible card. When you tried to install it did the card hit something causing it not to fit?
