Dell 390 Tower with 3 Video Cards having issue with getting vid cards to work in pcie x 1 ports... need help

Q: Dell 390 Tower with 3 Video Cards having issue with getting vid cards to work in pcie x 1 ports... need help

We have a Dell 390 tower that has 1 pcie x16 port and 2 pcie x1 ports. We have 3 additional videos cards other then the onboard but we are having difficulty getting all the video cards to work. The mutiple option only comes up when you add the video card in pcie x 16 slot but will not come up if you remove that card and put video cards into the other slots. Need help getting all video cards to work at the same time.
Additional Video Cards ( all 3 besides onboard) are :
EVGA GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 01G-P3-1303-RX 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
We have converter cables converting the pcie x 16 to pcie x 1. We've seen where other people with this same setup have gotten them all to work together but we just can't crack the code...any suggestions?

as the post states, are there such thing as video cards sending sound though it's HDMI or DVI output ports?

like for example...

an nVidia or ATI card providing sound through its HDMI (like a blu-ray player) or DVI outputs.

Hi there,

My computer came with a VIA/S3G UniChrome IGP card, which is apparently a Graphics/Video Card with onboard video (or the other way around, video w/ onboard graphics) Now, this is a terrible card- it can barely play any modern games. I want to get a new graphics card, but I'm concerned if I install a new Graphics Card, that because of the onboard video, it will affect this greatly, or if I actually need a video card instead of graphics. What do I actually need, and will it adversely affect anything on my PC.

I can provide more information if you want...

Hey, im looking yet again to upgrade my laptop. This time I want to know the best possible video card for gaming compatible with my laptop. Halo 2 wont run All posts appreciated!

A:video cards for dell e1505

You can't change the video in the E1505/6400, at least not without a complete mainboard swap. From what I've researched on this model, the base version used Intel 9xx series integrated video while more upmarket versions had some ATi video built in. Whatever the best video was available in this series is still underpowered for current games.

This is one of those laptop models where the manufacturer offered a wide range of options and short of having it in hand with a functional install of Windows with all the correct drivers, the only way to know what it shipped with is to use the service code at Dell.

But whatever it already has for video is what you're stuck with. There are some rather expensive adapters to connect a desktop PCI Express video card to the ExpressCard slot but you only get x1 speed and the video doesn't go to the laptop's screen.

I have done some research on here and noted that a 750ti card would work in a 3010MT with factory 260W PSU. 

However I have a couple of other questions please. I am not a heavy gamer, is there anything a little less substantial than a 750ti that would work with my factory PSU in the 3010MT Optiplex? Or is it best just to go for the 750ti ( non SC version ) full height?

A:Video Cards refusing to work

did you disable the onboard in the bios or with a jumper, I'm a little surprised they coexisted. Both are 2d 3d cards and I would have though they would have conflicted with the onboard.

did you delete the registry keys for 3dfx and then try to install the cards. Make sure you back up the registry before trying anything.

It seems as if every gamer has dual video cards these days. I have another PCI-E slot just sitting there and would love to add another video card on top of my Nvidia 8800 GT.

Do I need to get a certain video card, or can I pick any one? (I didn't know if it's like dual memory where you have to have the same amount of memory in each video card [i.e. - two 512MB cards, two 1GB cards, etc.])

Also, if I'm running two video cards...which one do I plug the monitor into?

First of all, I want to say that you can never put a card into another designated slot. Do you know what motherboard model you have? You can find out by downloading this and opening the cpuz.exe file and then going to the mainboard tab. Mainboard = Another name for motherboard .

A:Laptop Video cards Dell Inspiron 5150

Most laptops do not have replaceable video cards (they use a version of on-board video).

Some Dell models do have a separate card, but its very proprietary, not anything like a standard card. You would need to check with Dell.

I suspect that your chance is about zero of upgrading a laptop video though.

hi so i have a dell studio 1458 laptop. now i have a Express Card (EC) on it and in the manual says that it can do all kool things like wifi cards and what not. however in the manual, it also says *not compatable with PC cards* however im trying to do this:

External Graphics Card - Add a eGPU video card to your laptop PE4H PE4L - YouTube

so i can play nice games and what not. but that is calling for a PCI express slot. what i have, is it an PCI express slot, and will that work with that PE4H adapter? or no cause it just can support PCI express since the manual says. i figured id ask B/C its an adapter.

A:Help with EC and PCIE cards

I can't imagine that actually working, or why anyone would want to have exposed components and a power supply sitting around. Why not just have a desktop for gaming, considering that isn't a portable solution anyway?

Simply put, if you want to play the latest games, a laptop isn't the way to go unless you drop some serious coin. That's the trade off you agree to with a laptop, in exchange for portability.

Simple question really;

I'm about to purchase a BTX-chassi and a BTX-motherboard. The motherboard has a regular PCIe x16-slot.

I do also have a graphics card with the PCIe x16 interface, from my old ATX-chassi.

Can I simply pop the card in the PCIe-slot, or does the BTX-structure require something else like an inverted card specifically made for the BTX?
 

A:Does PCIe x16-cards fit in BTX-chassis as well?

i'm pretty sure it works all the same, with the slot being the same distance from the chassis itself as with an ATX.

Hi ZooMan.......
the mobo you have is an ''SLI'' board as im sure your aware, they obviously wont work in tandem, & i don't think they'll work independantly of each other either as it would require 2 different drivers...

just buy a ''DVI to HDMI'' dongle
i could be wrong but i don't think it will work.

A:RAID cards, PCI and PCIe, best option?

Here are options I've been looking at.

Syba PCI Express SATA II 4 x Ports RAID Controller Card SY-PEX40008

Adaptec RAID 1430SA - Storage controller (RAID) - 4 Channel - SATA-300 low profile - 300 MBps - RAID 0, 1, 10, JBOD - PCI Express x4

SYBA SY-PCI40026 PCI Low Profile SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Adaptec 2240900-R 1430SA PCI Express X4 4-Port SATA 3GBS Low-profile Host RAID ControllerClick to expand...

Adaptec has been the leader for decades and using the CARD avoids the 'fake-raid' software implementation. One big advantage is the card completes the operation without the assistance of the CPU.

Once you opt for the raid-controller card, you (imo) really ought to go with
SCSI attached devices which give you hotplug support and dynamic raid recovery.[x]

Be carefull: Even Microsoft does not recommend attempting to boot from a Raid.
Raid is a server function to avoid a single point of failure, and even with Raid-1 or Raid-10, you still need a backup system.

[x]The NAS Raid-x is frequently SCSI internally for these reasons

I hope I'm posting this in the right place.
So I've been thinking of buying a capture card (PCIe), but before I actually go buy one I want to just make sure that what I'm thinking is actually the case.
So.. I want to live stream gameplay, the CPU load gets hefty because it's juggling resources with the stream as well as the actual game I'm playing.
My question to you guys is, will a PCIe capture card take up the CPU load off my computer (The streaming live encoding stuff), giving my computer (CPU) the freedom to concentrate on the game?
This is the capture card I'm interested in, will this do exactly what I'm hoping it will do?

A:PCIe Capture Cards, CPU load etc.

I gather that you are playing a PC-based game and live streaming on the same PC? If so, then the capture card will not help in any way.

The function of a capture card is to capture the video/audio feed from a console, or a separate PC. It will have no effect if the game is played on the same PC that the capture card is installed in.

No matter the source, the gameplay will have to be encoded by the streaming PC. Your encoding settings can be tweaked to find the right balance between stream quality and CPU load.

Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hi Elliot and welcome
Without the DMP's there could be a million reasons. You should be able to have two or more but if the number of drivers/devices in device mgr is different than the correct number that in itself could be the problem...Try UN-installing the highest number device.

A:Windows XP - PCI Cards, USB Ports not working - conflicts?

Looks like your having a resource conflict after your new XP install. What I would do is disable/uninstall the drivers for both the Dlink and Sound Blaster cards. Then disable/uninstall the drivers for the onboard ethernet controller and the onboard sound controller. Then I would proceed to reinstall the Dlink and SoundBlaster drivers. I would also check for driver updates for these 2 devices.

I am going into my fourth year of architecture school and I am building a desktop. I plan on using my system for Adobe cs5, CAD, Revit, 3ds max, Maya, Ecotect, Virtual Enviroment, Rhino, and Grasshopper. I am having trouble deciding on a graphics card. Is it necessary to have a workstation graphic card to do 3d modeling with these programs? If so, what type of card would you reccomend, Nvidia or ATI?

List of requirements given by the school:
Intel® Core? i7
12 GB+ Memory
2TB Hard Drive
Dual 20"+ monitors
DVD±RW Drive
Dedicated ATI or nVidia video adapter with at least 1-2GB memory
Wireless Network Adapter
Windows 7 ® Home Premium (64-bit)
 

A:Workstation graphic cards vs. consumer cards

The last question is the easiest - I would go with nVidia because their CUDA processing engine accelerates many of the applications you use. I know Adobe CS5 and Maya take advantage of it but don't know about the rest of the applications you listed.

Adobe CS5 added acceleration for multiple applications with the Mercury Playback Engine which is designed specifically for more recent nVidia cards with the CUDA feature set.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/adobe-cs5-cuda-64-bit,2770.html

Third party review and recommendations for use with CS5 (the card list starts about half way down the page)

http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/PremiereCS5.htm

CUDA (see more info below about CUDA) supported graphics cards (note that the GeForce or mainstream and gamer cards (for desktop and laptop PCs) are listed near the bottom of the page:

http://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus

nVidia provides information touting how much their cards accelerate Adobe CS5, including general description about CUDA with internal links to more info for advanced users:a

http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_home_new.html

Here are a couple of reviews on workstation cards you might find informative:

Workstation Shootout: Nvidia Quadro 5000 Vs. ATI FirePro V8800
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/quadro-5000-firepro-v8800-workstation-graphics,2701.html

AMD FirePro V9800 4 GB: Eyefinity Meets Professional Graphics
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/firepro-v9800-eyefinity-quadro-5000,2780.html

The choice between workstation vs. gaming cards is a little more difficult. The higher end gaming cards are very similar to the lower end gaming cards, the difference is primarily in the drivers and service. Workstation drivers have been more finely tuned to the kinds of work done in WS applications - but this can have a signficant impact on performance for those applications. Morever, with the higher price you pay buys you better, generlly quicker support for dealing with issues.

I think the choice must depend on how and how much you use the cards. If you use the applications for several hours a day, the higher productivity of the workstation station cards may pay for the higher cost several times over. Otherwise you might do just as well with the gaming cards.

If you decide to go with gaming cards, you might find some helpful information on upgrading video cards at upgradevideocards.com, but they have no information on workstation cards:

Hi.. So my psu got messed up so i have now sent it in and using a old psu without pci-e power so i had to change out my GTX 660 to my old ATI Radeon 4650
Though the gtx 660 kicks donkey in gaming the Radeon is running flash games smoother and some other stuff to
Also a bit of a OpenCL vs CUDA war
When rendering with my AMD A8 laptop with intergrated gpu the rendering times in Sony Vegas 12 accually was shorter than the video with OpenCL gpu acceleration on But with
Cuda acceleration on with my GTX 660 with around 950 CUDA cores the rendering times are about dubble the video lenght

This is soo confusing??
Did i do a very stupid move buying a 660 instead of a R9 270x card for Gaming and video editing and rendering

A:AMD cards Vs nVidia cards? Got very confused by a thing

You didn't mess up on anything but to be honest AMD has gotten better with encoding speeds over the years

I just recently bought a new GTX 780 ti I have not done any video yet i have been doing benchmarks but i will find out soon enough

the time it normally took me to render and burn with 2x7970's were about 20 minutes depending on what it was doing some took longer then others to about 30 minutes but actually cut down to 25 minutes

Direct Compute and Open GL are on fire right now with AMD cards they use it very well and Bitcoin Miners seem to love how much over Nvidia they run

For me it's doesn't mater as long as it suits my needs but other people may differ with the way AMD has been changing GPU Architecture people have been going red and also the prices have gone up so if you are looking to change now you need to look for a card worth the coin because they gone up 20% matching Nvidia prices

I was wondering what makes NVidia's quadro cards so much more expensive than even the high end gaming GPUs? I know there more for the "workstation" PC and are used more for 3d modeling and such with programs like 3ds max and maya but what exactly do these quadro cards have that the high end gaming GPUs don't? More cuda processors? Higher Memory bus width? The reason I am asking is because I recently purchased a GTX 780 SC and was thinking of getting into either 3ds max/maya in the near future. Would purchasing another GTX 780 and putting into sli configuration help with programs like max and maya? Thanks for the any help!

To answer your question, the Quaddro series of cards or FirePro for AMD are different from the gaming cards because they re-purpose the cards for straight up compute. The software included with them and drivers along with some additional features make them poor at gaming but better in the fields of compute/cuda dev/opencl/etc. Also those cards in most cases also cram more RAM than the standard card models for higher rendering among other things.

You will be fine with a 780 for the basics of 3DS max and maya and adding another would be somewhat beneficial later down the line but you can definitly use your superclock GTX 780 for this and get decent performance for these programs.

I have an RCA Kazoo RD1000 MP3 player and I am looking to buy a memory card for it but I'm not sure which one to get. In the manual, it references Multi Media Card (MMC) but in the stores, the only ones I can find are the SD cards. All of the memory card readers have one slot for the SD and the MMC cards.

I am wondering if SD and MMC are backwards compatible or not.

any help would be cool.
 

A:Are Multi Media Cards and SD cards the same?

Not sure how accurate this statement is:
MMC Card
Weighing less than two grams and taking up the area of a postage stamp, MultiMediaCards are ideal for use in portable devices like digital audio players, digital cameras, and PDAs. In addition to its distinct size advantage over other removable memory, the MultiMediaCard's low power draw makes it highly suitable for battery-powered mobile applications. MMC cards will fit into devices that have an SD slot - MMC cards are the same size, and are often much cheaper than SD cards, because they're an 'open' standard (SD card manufacturers have to pay royalties, and MMC card manufacturers don't!).

http://www.filesaveas.com/memorycard.html

I didn't think they could be interchanged though......perhaps someone else can shed some light. I use SD Cards.

I have Dell XPS 720 which has the 750W power supply and have one point-of-view GeForce GTX 560 card.
I would like to fit a second identical card - has anybody run this configuration?
The power requirement for the card is 150 W max (equivalent to 12.5A @ 12 V; it would be less as it takes other power via PCI bus)
The card two 6 way power connectors (P3 and P4), each connected to 12 V that can supply 18.0A.
From my calculations each of the two 12 V supplies can easily power one card, ok there is other hardware attached to the supplies, namely two hard disks (from memory each takes less than 1 A).
So the plan is to fit a splitter to each 12 V supply power supply so they power one connector on each card.   (The card must have separate power supplies to each connector).
Can anyone foresee any problem with doing that?

Okay, here's what I want to do. I want to send video output to a Plasma in my family room and also have output to the computer monitor in the adjacent office. I have the option of using either VGA or DVI to either monitor, so I can use a video card that has dual VGA/DVI outputs. Or, I can buy a separate PCI video card. Right now I have an ATI All-in-Wonder 7500.

Am I better off to get a new video card with dual monitor output or have two separate video cards. If the former, what video cards do you recommend? I know I've seen recommendations for the 9600 Pro, which seems to have dropped significantly in price? I'd like to stay with ATI as I've always used that.

The cards are likely to run/perform better w/ XP because DX9 does not require as much graphics horsepower as DX10 with Vista, but I could be wrong. Try searching for some benchmarks... I'm also not sure how SLI scales with the two versions of directX.

The cardbus hardware standard is not an issue with 7 and any laptop. Now, drivers for individual cards can be a problem, especially 64 bit drivers. (not likely to need 64 bit drivers with an old laptop) I would suggest you go to this site:

Windows Vista Compatibility Center

and find your USB PCMCIA card. If there are Vista drivers for it, you should be OK for 7.

Happy surfing!

A:Help about video cards...

Pleasing05 said:



Ok, I've got 4 questions:

1. Which is better, a Geforce FX 5500 256mb or ATI Radeon 9550 256mb? Will they run on an AGP 4X slot? BTW I have an Asus P4V533 w/ AGP 4x that supports 3.3V and 1.5V. I've researched the Radeon's compatibility and it says that it supports AGP 2X, 4X and 8X with 3.3V, 1.5V and 0.8V respectively. Does that mean it automatically reconfigure itself when I put it on my computer?

2. I can't find the Nvidia's stats, so does it run on AGP 4X with 1.5V or 3.3V option or does it only support AGP 3.0?

3. Is this upgrade worth it? I curretly have GeForce 4 MX440 (yeah yeah I was a noob buying that piece of trash)

4. Concerning pixel shaders, can these two run pixel shader 3.0 games and above? (the motive of the question is to find out how long it takes before no games can be compatible to the card, even at minimum settings)Click to expand...


1. ATI Radeon 9550 256mb will beat the crap out of the GeForce FX 5500 because it's a more recent card while the 5500 is still pretty old, Do you have 4x/x8 AGP or x2/x4? When you put the card into your system and install it right then it should work, If you need help with setting it up you know where to ask!

2. the nVidia stats I cant find either but you could try www.newegg.com and see if you find it there

3. Yes, It's worth the upgrade because the card is pretty cheap ( the ATI card ) and is still pretty good with the stuff it has, You could save a few dollars and get this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814195027 it's better then the 9550 and runs pretty good

4. The card I listed can run 2.0 games no problem but newer games like Oblivion & F.E.A.R you would have to get this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150157 ( nVidia ) or this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102069 ( ATI )

The ATI one is probably the better between the two, my Friend has the ATI card and can run Oblivion no problem at medium-high and good resolution
Hope I helped and answered your questions!

Also the question about your Processor is that it is a Socket 478, you should get this ATX Intel mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131527 and if you already have the CPU from your old machine you could just use that ( make sure to get a CPU fan to fit Socket 478 and get some Thermapaste from your local computer store! )

Also be sure that your case can fit a Normal ATX motherboard and not hold something like MicroATX or BabyATX because it wont fit, If you know what case you have then give me the name and i'll look and see if it holds ATX

A:Video Cards?

Quad-Crossfire\SLI might look cool, but real-world benefits are very little, since the performance increase in going from one GPU to two of them is 50% at best, and most of the time, it is around 20-40%. In some cases, two GPUs may actually perform no better than one. So quad-GPUs are more of a gimmick and even for multi-monitor support, two single-GPU video cards are a better choice.

As for the rest of your system, look at an X58 motherboard paired with a Core i7 CPU and a good-quality Corsair XMS2\Crucial Ballistix\OCZ Reaper DDR3 kit. For a good PSU, look at the 750W and above units from PC Power & Cooling, Corsair and Silverstone.

then type

If you don't care about the settings, then you'll get plenty more than 20 FPS in either of those games. Obviously, if you turn everything to the max, it'll be slower, but you'll be able to play with everything pretty high on that card.

If you have any info. or any cards to recommend that are affordable please let me know. Your help is appreciated. thanx
 

A:How can video cards help?

Most on-board video are of low quality and can go a long way to slowing your machine down. Most notably many of these cards use 'shared memory' which uses your system RAM to power the card and further dimish the speed of your system.

I would say almost any upgrade to an AGP video card would be a big improvement even for basic computing if you have <=256mg ram and an onboard video card.

If your into gaming then you may want to consider upgrading to one of the newer cards but I think almost any upgrade will be a big improvement.

Hi

Is it possible to use two video cards / two VGA monitors in WinXP?

I know it's possible to use a video card with DVI and VGA outputs, and then have two monitors that act as one desktop.

But what if you have two VGA monitors (neither are DVI)? I am currently using an integrated VGA adapter (on the motherboard), and wondered if i added a regular PCI video card if i could then use a second VGA monitor.

What are the pro's and con's of the interface methods used by Video Cards ... Which of AGP or PCI is considered to be the most preferable and why? ... just trying to upgrade my knowledge bank ... .

A:AGP or PCI for Video Cards

PCI is old style, and obviously the slowest. Pro - you can pretty much use this type of card in any computer, new or old. However, these cards are going the way of the dinosaur, and struggle with newer games, even at low graphic settings.

Next is AGP 4x, somewhat faster. Pretty common with lots of options to choose from. You can typically pick one up pretty cheap, too. However, with the increasing popularity of AGP 8x and PCI-express, these types are slowly phasing out. Expect to see them around for a while yet, though.

Followed by AGP 8x, faster again. Alot of very high-performance cards in this category. Many options to choose from and these cards are pretty reasonably priced. Not many cons here, as 8x offers excellent performance in new games.

The latest technology is PCI-Express - this is much faster than even AGP 8x. PCI-X are screaming-fast, but at a cost. These cards are typically the most expensive, but you get what you pay for.

I am looking at Video cards. I want to know how they work, what the different chipsets do. How and what difference more RAM in the video card does. Stuff like that. Anyway was hoping for a site or something to the sorts as the answer to one question will probably just create another question. I have checked the GeForce site and ATI and have found nothing on how the video card actually works. Any sites that i can get will be appreciated. Thanks.

Google is a great place for finding information. I just typed in "How video cards work". This was the first hit. I'm sure there are many others.

I just bought a Soltek SL-75FRN-L motherboard. I'm looking for a Video card to go with it. Anyone have any suggestions? It has to be 4x or 8x and I'm leaning towards the Leadtek FX 5600 ultra. I have a Ti4200 card now but this MB won't support 2x. I would appreciate your ideas and input.

Thanks,

Hi, All

I'm planing to buy a Video Card and i noticed all brands are the same and same price, except one brand stands out the rest, specially has more GHZ and MHZ. Here they are :

1) BFG GeForce 8800 GTS OC 550MHZ 640MB 1.6GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDTV Out HDCP DIRECTX10 Video Card

2) ASUS GeForce 8800 GTS 500MHZ 640MB 1.6GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDTV Out DirectX 10 Video Card

3) EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS / 640MB GDDR3 / SLI Ready / PCI Express / Dual DVI / HDTV / HDCP Enabled / Video Card

4) XFX GeForce 8800GTS XT PCI-E 580MHZ 640MB 1.8GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDCP TV Out DIRECTX10 Video Card

XFX has 580MHZ and 1.8GHZ which is more then the others. Does that make a big difference? or mean anything?

Thank you all
 

A:Video Cards

The XFX 8800 GTS is an excellent model and brand. The others are just as good, but the XFX card will run a little faster (and a little hotter). The speed difference is fairly negligible but XFX seems to get a little more out of their cards. Speed is important because it determines how fast it renders images and passes the pixels along the pipeline in order to display the image, depending on the type of processor, RAM, and motherboard you are running it on. Power supply is also an important factor. If going with either one of these cards, two things are VERY IMPORTANT, a power supply of at least 600watts and internal fans to keep the card cool. These cards run extremely hot and without the proper cooling (intake and exhaust), thy'll overheat and fry.

I was wondering if anyone can help me.
I have a video card in my computer it is a NVIDIA VANTA/VANTA LT
I also have not in the computer, but also VANTA/TNT2M64 video card.
Which is the better card?
And is either one of them equal to or better than a GFORCE 2?
I have a program I want to run, but I must have a gforce to or better card.

Thank you
Tammy
 

A:video cards

Off those two choices the TNT2M64 is the more powerful adapter. However, it is not comparable to a Geforce2. It is not even comparable to the original Geforce line.
