Q: Replacement for Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTX

Hi all My computer was top of the line years ago The past few years my computer has been freezing crashing and bluescreening due to the kind of functionality I force it through namely the use of multiple programs at once internet livestream games The fan hasn t worked for over a year now it was choking I simply turned it off and often attempted to keep my system as cool as possible using a large floor fan Today it gave it s death knoll - freezing with video ram artifacts all over the screen I had been I messing around with the EVE Online character creator with internet playing music and Steam open naturally Un- and reinstallation of the drivers would not fix the artifacts it had forced non-native resolution it wouldn t go beyond x or something native is x and was happily informing me that I wasn t quot currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU quot despite the fact that the second I uninstalled the drivers my computer was GTX Nvidia 8800 for Geforce Replacement searching for and reinstalling them again I gave up and shut down to look at the power supply and when I turned it back on it was miraculously in it s native resolution and artifact-free but I ve abused it long enough now that it probably only has a few months left and is in desperate Replacement for Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTX need of replacement I realize it might even be artifact-ridden next time I turn it on Dell pre-built desktop years old Windows Vista Ultimate bit Intel Core Quad CPU at GHz GB RAM I think my power supply is max W but I m having trouble figuring the label out so I attached a picture in case I m sorely mistaken I m looking for something that works within my current specs approximately the same size as the Geforce GTX my case won t fit anything much bigger as far as I can tell and I can t get a new case because it barely fits height-wise where I need it to go As I said I use multiple programs and I especially game on my computer so I need something that can handle my usage On the other hand I am looking to completely replace my system within a few years with something custom from Origin so I don t want to be pouring money into this system So - something that will allow me to eke out a few more years within my other current specs without costing me a bundle Say around or Please let me know if you need more information and thanks in advance nbsp

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Umm have you thought about buying a new computer, yours is rather old. The amount of work, time and money you will probably spend on it trying to fix it up until you throw it away will be quite a lot.

I have come across a similar problem when I update drivers on my nvidia - the screen goes black for a certain amount of time - this usually tells you you're using the wrong version of the drivers in no few words! The monitor sounds like it has a timeout that activates when the driver blanks the screen.

You could try this driver: free x64 downloads, no registration, no popups. nVidia forceware 163.69 WHQL for Vista x64 and see if it makes any difference (its WHQL certified)

pretty much any game i play that is graphics intensive. ie crysis or battlefield. just examples humor me. i get the display driver has quit and then responded again all of a sudden. i have windows 7 enter rtm with all the latest updates from microsoft and nvidia. im running two monitors both at 1440x900. and i only get this problem when i play games and this as well has persisted through owning vista as well. i went from vista 32 home premium to 7 32 enterprise. anyone have some suggestions?

Time for upgrade lol. I got an 8600 GT and it works great but i sure as hell can't push those new games on high, let alone ultra. Try turning down settings and play with the options. Shadows and antialiasing will be your enemy til ya get into the 9 series of the GeForce family.

Also try going into the NVidia control panel via right click on desktop and default everything and make sure the application always decides the 3d settings.

I doubt your PSU will be able to handle a 8800. If you are getting it online, it should tell you what the system requirements are for it. It probably requires at least a 450 watt PSU.

I am looking to buy a used NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT graphics card or Radeon HD 2900 Pro off ebay. The reason is I want to be able to run the Alan Wake PC game.

I know its not the newest card out there but I think its much better than the one I currently have. Can anyone tell me if it will work with my computer please ?

I have an Acer Aspire ACPIx64 -based PC Desktop computer. I filled out as many system specs as I could, but I couldn't for some, as I am not very technically inclined. Based on the info given though, can anyone tell me if the graphics card will work/fit in my computer and do I need a particular socket/connection type?

Also, if I'd need anything else, such as a better power supply?


A:Would a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT work with my computer ?

Well from GeForce site :8800GT requires 400 Watt power supply,6-pin and 8-pin connectors.
I would suggest you to get 500/550 Watt 18A +12V 1DC good quality power supply as 8800GT on full load requires almost 10 Amps on +12V rail.

Considering other hardware,you should be fine although your 8800GT might be a bottleneck to your i5.

You will need a new power supply. According to the specs of your computer it says you have a 250watt power supply and the video card says to at least have 450watts of power.So yes it should work fine on your computer but you will need a power supply with higher wattage of at least 450watts.

Password-cracking chip causes security concerns.

A technique for cracking computer passwords using inexpensive off-the-shelf computer graphics hardware is causing a stir in the computer security community.

Using the "massively parallel processing" capabilities of a graphics processing unit (GPU) - the processor normally used to produce realistic graphics for video games, the speed of password cracking was increased by a factor of 25 - and a Russian company has filed for a U.S. patent on the technique.

Hi Tony, you may be in luck, what you are describing is consistent with a RAM failure, not a graphics card failure, the thing that points me toward this conclusion is that you are experiencing slow opening times for programs that don't require any GPU power, maybe a quick look online at some cheap ram sticks may be a good idea

heyya mates,
from what i've read the main positive of the 512 is that it runs better at extreme resolutions, so my question would be, where is the cut off point.
what i mean is, i have an essentially low res monitor (technically its highest resolution is 1280 x 1024 at 60 hz) and i really have no problem with that as a max resolution. so would i see any real benefit from getting a 512 over a 256 8800 gt? either way, at what resolution do you start to see an FPS change with modern games (say, bioshock, FEAR or COD:4. my computer isnt up to crysis standards anyway)

A:GeForce 8800 GT 256 vs 512

From my experience (I run an 8800GT 256mb) you would really only see a performance difference at 1680x1050 or above when you start cranking AA and AF. If you intend on gaming above 1680x1050 I would opt for the 512mb model, otherwise 256 should be fine. Hope that helps!

I've never installed a graphics card or any real internal peice of hardware except RAM, which doesn't really count imo. So when I bought this and decided to install it myself, it made me nervous as ****.

It seemed to go real easy, taking out the ATI Radeon X1900 and swapping it for the Geforce, everything went in no probs. However, when I screwed everything back and plugged the monitor/power etc in, turned the comp on and the monitor never came on.

Has anyone ever come across this problem before or know why it may be happening?

The guys where i bought it said its unusual for the card to be faulty, and seem confused as to what it might be. Going to take the comp in for them to look at tommorow after I finish work, but wondered if anyone here might have any idea's

ok im in a position at the moment where i want to upgrade my gaming laptop.

I've been looking at an Alienware m9700 with dual 512Mb 7900 GPU's in SLI


knowing that the new nvidia 8800 architecture is just far superior to the old architecture and that frame rates are superb on the 8800's, what should i do?

1. does anyone have any info either from nvidia or lappy makers about release dates for Go versions of the 8800 GPU's?

2. I have the patience to wait a few months and have the cash to invest in a very good (around the £2000 mark) lappy, would the wait for the 8800's superior architecture be worth it in the long run, esp with new titles like UT3 etc?

cheers for any advice


A:GeForce GO 8800 GTX/GTS ????

You'd get better frames with the dual 7900s. You'd get a better "picture" with the 8800 thanks to the higher quality shaders. You'd still get good framerates, but the dual 7900s would win if that's your biggest need.

I am getting ready to purchase the GeForce 8800 (link: ) but I have a few questions about installation.

#1 From the picture, I see it requires to use a power cable for extra power. I know one part goes in the back of the card itself, but where does the other half go? I don't see any port like that on my motherboard or PSU.

#2 I know it also has to use a PCI express 6pin cable. My harddrive uses one currently, does this mean I need another for the graphics card as well?

On a side note, I'm also getting a new PSU. Is the installation simply plugging stuff in where the previous PSU sockets were, or is it more complicated? (I've checked to make sure the main connecter matches the mobo)

Do you have any cooling fans in your system. I have an XFX 8800 GTX card and 4 fans (not counting the board fan, plus I'm overclocking the system) and the highest temps I reach are around 52C) Just because other games will run at high temps doesn't necessarily mean anything. It has to do with the 3D apps and how long they tax the system. Also, when is the last time you cleaned out your system (opened the side cover and cleaned out the dust from the inside and used either a can of compressed air/Q Tip to clean all the fans).

Hi, if you click on that link and then go to the support section, you can download the manual for your graphic card, this will help you sort out your problem.
You can also get any driver updates which are available for it as well which may help.
Hope your power supply unit is strong enough to cope with it, take it you have checked to see that it is not over heating and your tv is actually able to work with the resolution offered, if it has a very large screen might cause some problems.

Bit of a noob question here:
But i am looking to get a Geforce 8800GTS 320MB for my new PC but i see that there are a number of different types. For example: EVGA, BFG, XFX etc. So what is the difference?

I have found an EVGA 8800GTS (EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card) at a much cheaper price than anything ive seen, does this mean it is less powerfull to the others in some way?

A:Question on the Geforce 8800 GTS

They are not different types - they are different brands.

Nvidia makes the graphics chipset, also called the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).
However, Nvidia does not generally make their own video cards out of their chips. They send them over to board manufacturers such as EVGA, BFG, XFX, etc.
These manufacturers can follow Nvidia's reference design for their graphics chips, and they can also add their own tweaks such as overclocking.

The key is just to find a model that suits your needs and from a manufacturer that you trust. EVGA is an excellent graphics card maker.

Suggestion: Rather than getting the 8800GTS, I would recommend getting an 8800GT instead (if you can find it in stock, that is). The 8800GT uses the newer G92 chip, offering BETTER performance for a LOWER price compared to the 8800GTS (G90).

So i want a 8800 and i might be getting this.but i got a asus p5b and all my pci slots are taken up how many slots do i need free to get this thing to fit?OF COURSE I will be removing my nvidia 7600 i also have a capture card i dont use anymore so i guess i can switch everything over.Any help would be great thanks.

A:GeForce 8800 GTS 320 MB question.

The 8800GTS takes 2 slots, the one it is plugged in to, and the one directly below that. So if you have a PCI card there, remove it. Preferably, remove the PCI cards from the two slots below the 8800GTS because it will get more air that way.

Hi my name is Jason. I know the GPU I have is old but I'm a disabled military veteran who cant afford a new one. Im looking for some help trying to figure out the issue im having with it. I thought it was an overheating issue which was causing the GPU to overheat and shut off. I checked the temp and it was at 120F and was running fine. All of a sudden ill hear the ding as if I disconnected something then my monitor goes blank. My computer is still running and I hear all the sounds and everything. I've downloaded the latest drivers and installed them. I also turned up the fan speed to see if that would help. I'm stuck and have no clue what to do. Any help would be wonderful. Ty.

I recently had to have my laptop repaired, and the graphics card was replaced.

I originally had a NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT, and when I got the computer back, it had an 8800M GTX.

I don't know a lot about the hardware and stuff, so I immediately assumed 8800 would be worse than the 9800. I looked around at the numbers, though, and all the specs seem to be the same. In a quick search I couldn't easily find the prices of both cards to see if I am getting a bad deal.

What should I do? What is the difference between the cards and which is better? I need my laptop and don't want to have to send it back in, but if they put cheaper hardware in my computer I want to do something about it.

Any help is appreciated.

A:GeForce 9800 GT vs 8800 GTX

I'm going to go on a limb here and assume something. But if the laptop variants are the same as the desktop, you will see absolutely bugger all difference between the two (<3%) with the 8800GTX being better. but the 8800GTX may be a bit hotter/use more power.

But like I said, I may be assuming too much here, I'd wait for a more...qualified answer.

I'm trying to install RC1 on the following Computer:

Asus P5VD2-X
C2D [email protected] 2.4 GHz
2 GB DDR2 RAM @ default
Asus Geforce 8800 GTS, 256 MB

Here is the situation:

The disc is burnt, CRC check is done. I insert it into the drive and start up the PC. It says "press any button to boot from dvd/cd" .. that's what I do.

Then it's giving me the "starting windows" logo... and the green loading-icon. After that though, all it does is giving me a black screen. It's not that the monitor is off (I've tried another just to rule that out) but that the gfx is not giving a signal. Safe mode doesnt' work, either.

I tried it with a nother gfx-card ( x800 GTO ) and everything works just fine.

My question is: How do I install drivers for the gf 8800 gts without actually having it built in.

Or is there another way to get the 8800 to work? Thank you very very much for your time.

How can I connect the 8800 gtx to my monitor? My monitor has a s video input and the gtx has an s video output. Could I buy an s video cable and plug it in that way? Would I lose any graphics power if I did this?

I'm not sure about the s-video cable, but it will most probably be bad quality. I'm pretty sure you can buy a dvi-vga converter. so that's a solution.

Okay, here's my problem.

Whenever I boot up the machine, I load up in 800x600 resolution and when I go to Display Settings and click on Advanced, my PC says it can't retrieve any data.

When I go to Device Manager, it shows that my video card has a problem, so I disable and enable it, and everything works fine. I redo my resolution and everything is dandy. Next time I reboot, same problem again - the video card has an error and I have to disable and re-enable it to get it working again.

1) I was wondering if any one knows what kind of PCI express going to be used by ATI HD 2950 and Geforce 8800 GT. I heard its going to be PCI-Express 2.0. If that?s the case, can I use a PCI-Express 2.0 card in my PCI-Express 16x slot?
(my motherboard is P35)

2) Can the ATI 2900Pro or Geforce 8800GTS out put 1080P on to a TV(SAMSUNG Model FP-T5084) or is it just 1080i? When I ask that question from ATI they said it can, but when I go to the flowing manufacture?s website, it said ?HDMI output support all display resolutions up to 1920x1080i only?. Is there some other brand that can output 1080p using HDMI cables?

Hey, I've been encountering stuttering on my graphics card recently on many different games. It occurs even at low resolutions which the 8800 should be able to technically spank. My specs are:

AMD athlon 64 FX 60 dual core (2.61 GHz)
Previously mentioned Geforce 8800 GTX 768 MB

Tell me if you need further specs. Also, something that may matter: I get a message every time I boot up saying "Computer CHIP fan fail or speed too low" but I'm not sure how to fix it.

A:Am I getting a good deal on my GeForce 8800 GTS 320mb?

I never heard of the Inno3D brand, you should buy from a more popular brand like XFX or EVGA

But it's a good card, I dont think 320mb is alot of memory for that kind of card, last time I checked there is a 700mb 8800

A while back I was getting BSOD'S and I sent in the file log to the forum. The suggestion was to use the older driver for my Nvidia 8800 GTS card. Currently that is version seemed to stop the problem.

Now occasionally I am getting a message that says " The windows video driver has stopped responding, but has recovered" ( paraphrasing here)

This occurs at times when I wake the machine up from standby, I might see it once every 2 weeks or so.

Is it safe now to install a newer driver for video card or must I stay with what I have and put up with the message every now and then?

Does anyone know whether there have been any comparitive test results between the two? I understand the 8800GT is a slower card but by how much?

The reason for the curiosity is because I'm near done with a PC build. I'm essentially looking to work my way up versus going BIG from the start but it seems to make more sense to go with one 8800GT for starters and add another down the road if needed versus start with one 8800 Ultra and add another down the road given it's rediculous price. Could ultra prices cheapen down the road, likely.

I would like a stutter free 1920x1200 at full AA and AF via DX10. Do you think twin 8800GT's would cover this?

They will be plugged into a EVGA 680i SLI, running a E6850 at 2gb of Corsair Extreme memory.


A:Nvidia 8800GT vs 8800 Ultra....

I would go with the 8800 Ultra. If you do this, you won't need to run two in SLI mode. Trust me. I'm running a single 8800 GTX and there is really no reason for me to run two in SLI mode.

I had 32bit installed fine and working properly for a long time. When I messed with the Control panel for the 3D gfx options like filtering and stuff to bump up my quality, my game crashed and after watching youtube for more then 10minutes.

I was getting blue screens and freezing and everything. I used driver cleaners, and tried all different versions of drivers both custom from Tweakforce and right off the NV website. I have reformatted with 64bit windows on, since I have 4GB of ram now anyways, and even with a 186 driver version that is stable I still crash when any type of video or game is playing within 10minutes.

Any ideas?

A:Evga nvidia 8800 gts Questions.

From what ive heard the difference between the two versions only shows above 1600x1200 resolutions, and thats just framerates. I suppose it depends on the game also but from my research thats been the only difference. Last week I just upgraded from a vanilla 6800 to a EVGA superclocked 8800gts 320MB and I haven't found anything to complain about yet. Performance in Vista isnt up to par yet but thats true for all Nvidia cards, they generally perform 10-20% worse in Vista than they do in XP.

My GTS 8800 (640 mb) from gigabyte is overheating (apparently) and freezing my computer at around 55-60 C... I know that th card can handle more heat, and I'm wondering if there's any program that could allow me to access the Nvidia bios and turn up the shutoff temp?

Also, if anyone else has a similar (8800 640mb) card, then could you tell me the temps it runs at? thanks.

Hello, As you can read from the title im looking for a little advise on overclocking these cards. I dont have funds for new cards ATM and am wanting to overclock them instead of buying new ones. I'm only looking for insite from people who really know what their doing here. So please, a small guide on how to overclock these guys keeping in mind im running SLI, I dont know if that makes a difference. Any info needed simply ask and I will tell.

A:Dual Nvidia 8800 GT SLI overclocking

I would use EVGA precision (sorry, no link atm) and just...overclock?
SLI doesn't make any difference except temperature wise. Also you can individually control the graphics cards, but thats not necessary. Just keep temperatures in check.

With the 8800gt, you could easily reach 650 (my suggestion is to just leave the shader clock in check with the core speed, I believe EVGA precision will do this by default), and just inch on from there while watching temps and stress testing with games or something.

Hi there,
Current specs:

GFX=Nvidia 8800GT 512MB
Mobo= Asus P5N-e SLI
4 gb Corsair RAM
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3ghz
Samaung Bluray Rom drive

I am thinking of buying a large screen 1080P Plasma to replace 32" LCD @ 720p.

I have been happily watching Bluray with my current set-up, but can my system actually output 1080P or is it 1080i ???? How could I check?? I guess Id need to set the output resolution to 1920 x 1080 @ 60hz.
If not do I need a new GFX card??

Another related question... The TV will support 1920 x 1080 @ 24 hZ for judder free bluray playback.
Should I, can I, set the res at 1920x1080 @ 24hz instead when i watch bluray??

A:Nvidia 8800 GT and 1080p Bluray??

Yes it does support 1080p. If you go in to the Nvidia Control Panel you should see the resolution for it. If you go to the "change resolution" section, you should see all the HD resolutions available.

A:Debate on PSU requirements of nvidia 8800 GT/GTS cards

two 8600s will get better performance at super high resolution, but if your not planning on running things in the 2400 x1800 range, go for the 8800 gt.
also, i'd recommend getting a 6-700W powersupply. i'm not an AMD expert but from what i've heard they use more power and modern vid cards need quite a bit too.
lastly, are you getting a sound card? in my experience having a dedicated sound card (turtle beach montego is nice) makes for better sound

My BIOS doesnt have an option to disable onboard card, the only thing that i can do is to set pci-e as primary, but nothing happens. Also I tried to disable my onboard card from device manager, then only appear vga standar, and when i try to install the drivers for that
"vga standar card" directly from device manager, the only card that installs is intel graphics g965 (my onboard card).

All this time im been connected with vga cable from my onboard port to vga port on my monitor, but also i have the dvi cable from my 8800 gt to the dvi port on my monitor, but after the issue my monitor never is receiving video signal from my nvidia video card

This card was working pretty good before i uploaded to windows 7, but my motherboard is not compatible with w7 so i downgrade to vista.

Please give somme advices to fix this issue or to know if my card is not will work anymore. If you need more information please tell me.

Thank you.

all you need to do is shutdown the computer and unplug the VGA cable from the onboard card, it's still working off the onboard graphics card and sets that as the primary and will not install the new card until you remove the VGA cable.
