View Full Version : Pci-e x1
A neighbour im doing some pc work for has a busted onboard gfx on her mobo, so im buying her a graphics card. She only has pci-e x1, any suggestions?
I woudda said that gfx cards dont work on x1 speed. two, how are you going 2 change the setting if you cannot see the bios??/
well, its not completely broken, it just dies every 5 mins, once i get the new one in i shud be ok, think its overheating, i have put a case fan in, but i think it may already be half cooked, so this looks like the way to go, i've told her not to go on it at all
Never heard of a mobo having just PCIE x1? PCIE x1 slots are tiny around an inch or so long can you confirm it is a x1 slot.
What pc is it i am assuming it is a prebuilt one.
That's a CNR slot, not a PCI-e x1 lane. There's a large difference.
Best she can hope for is a PCI graphics card. ATI 9250 or nVIDIA FX 5200.
More on the CNR here:
yeh its got pci's aswell, but 1 36 pin pci-e slot, not sure what that is, yes its prebuilt*FULL STOP* mac124.

Christ it's a Mac? Why didn't you tell us? >_<
It's possible they're 64-bit PCI interfaces. Can't you just upload a photo for me so we can identify the interface before we advise you on replacement graphics?
However being a Mac you may find it harder to add discrete graphics.

ur best bet is a PCI graphics card as sum1 sed earlier.

We'll just ignore that, right guys? :D
PM'd you a link to an FX5200, mattbot. Aria don't stock any PCI cards, although the 7900GX2 appears in their PCI category, oddly.
That'd be a bugger, if someone bought one of those for a PCI slot. :P

Don't get what, my little joke about the 7900GX2? It's a PCI-Express card. Two cards in fact, stuck together.
im not sure why i even said i dont get it
