Anyone know if a Nvidia GT220 will run on a Asus A8N32 SLi motherboard ?

Ive tried a ATI 4650 which fails to work so rules out newer ATI cards so now looking at Nvidia (And before anyone starts down the "why did you try a ATi on Nvidia chipset", some ATI cards have worked fine in this board)..... did have a 9600GT lined up but that option was taken away from me at last second :(

Are you sure it wasn't the ATI card that was the problem? PCIe video cards follow a standard which is backwards compatible with previous versions of PCIe x16 so should work without a problem.

Nope, got the card tested etc and it was fine - the guy did say he had come across compat issues with newer ATI cards on Nvidia chipped boards.

No worries now anyway, got offered a 8800GT 512mb which Im taking up...... :)
