Installing an Nvidia GE Force 5200 in a K7SEM motherboard

    Hello

    My son gave me a Nvidia GE force 5200 video card to install in my other
    son's K7SEM motherboard. Based on the AMI BIOS I believe it is a
    version 3.0 C K7SEM. I have heard that installing the wrong version of
    an AGP video card into a motherboard can damage the video card or thge
    motherboard. I believe this motherboard supports AGP 2. I believe the
    video card supports AGP 4/8.

    Does anybody have any experience in installing this card into a K7SEM?

    Also the Bios gives a person a choice to select either PCI or onboard
    AGP. Assuming I install it correctly how do I disable the onboard
    video adapter.

    Thanks

    If it's a v3, it has 4x AGP, but you may have to swap from 2x to 4x in the
    BIOS.

  3. All K7sem's support AGP 4x. So your card should work. Probably should
    make sure hte mothrboard's bios is updated to the latest though. not sure
    how old 3.0c is.
