<b><font color=blue>I have this MOBO <A HREF="http://www.asus.com/products/mb/socket478/p4g8x-d/overview.htm" target="_new">ASUS P4G8X Deluxe</A> and i want to know if it works with <font color=red>ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256 MB</font color=red>.

I think to buy new video and i remembered that someone told me radeon have some problems on this MOBO and i checked google and find some sites saying that pc with this config is crashes or smth well that was total lame sites, howewer i read on many well respected hardware sites what it works with no problem at all but better to double check u know. If someone know about any problems with ASUS P4G8X Deluxe and ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256 MB post info here.

Ah yes also its not for 9800 i aim to buy 9900 when its out, but as 9900 is just clocked 9800 i think if 9800 works 9900 will to?

I know its never safe to assume, but Asus has a repeutation of making products with flawless design, and maximum stability. You should probably do fine with the asus board, but gives us the specifications of the board just to be sure. Also, what wattage Powersupply are you using? This is an important factor is because a really good video card like that sucks up alot of power from the PSU.

Read specs here: <A HREF="http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=P4G8X Deluxe" target="_new">http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=P4G8X Deluxe</A> and i have Codegen 300 W power suupply not new but i upgrade it later. I sure its supported by mobo just a read of some bugs but now i read on toms hardware and i see they have some problem to on beta of that mobo but after they updated bios all went fine so i think other sites i read have same beta version of mobo or smth.

Looks like you have a pretty good board there.

What Video card did you have in before your last one? Those Pentium 4 CPUs require alot of power to run them. Combined with that Top of the line Video chipset, your 300Watt Powersupply might not be able to take that kind of load. Try replacing the powersupply and see what happens. Or you can take your card to a friend's house who has a 400 watt or better and test it out there.

Some of the early 9700 cards had problems with some of the early Asus BIOS. Both sources of problems have since been fixed. Several users in here with newer 9700's and P4G8X boards. 9800 is simply an overclocked 9700 with an enhanced driver. In fact, the driver features are turned on when 9800 BIOS is detected, so that Omega drivers (hacked) can make a 9700 act like a 9800.

What I'm getting at is that since a 9700 works, a 9800 will too.

YEEECH.

I have known quite a few codegen power supplys.
Enough to say DONT use it with your new graphics card.

The rated wattage is really too low and codegens are only of average build quality. crappy really.

Your best bet is to get a quality PSU.
Something along the lines of a 400W enermax, antec true or Fortron.

Its allways best to have some headroom spare in your PSU.

Should at last work with radeon as min sys req is 300W.
I think to upgrade to something like 400 or 500 W, but at moment i have no money for PSU - after i buy video i can think about it.

I've been in these forums a while, and while proposing possible solutions I usually read other proposed solutions writen by other members. If the information checks out, I log it to long-term memory.
