post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How do you go about installing a Pci video card? I have a friend with an mdg made rig and since his mobo doesn't support agp he bought a pci video card. is there anything special when installing a pci video card?


Thanks In Advance

There is absolutely nothing special in installing a pci card, just plug it in , install the drivers and you're fine. I remembered my old vodoo2 12 megs on a P1 133, played starcraft and quake2 like crazy!

allright...so he got the card ( Xfx Geforce 5200 fx 256mb) and we put it in the first pci slot. We tried everything you could

changing bios selections for primary video boot..from integrated to PCI

uninstalling onboard vc drivers, installing new vc drivers.

first install then boot new vc, and first boot and then, install driver *Never Booted*

Help if you cann.

Thanks in advance!
