  1. Hi all
    I recently posted a thread about pixelated lines when i play games as I have just upgraded my machine.After much hunting I found out from the onsite tech that there is a compatibility issue between the gigabyte 81945g motherboard and the jetway Geforce 6600 256 pci-xpress.So just a friendly heads up to all those considering this option. :suspiciou

    Hi G A Hunter - thanks for the warning - I was thinking of getting the same exact motherboard!

    Hi

    Hi Gary

    Glad I could help

    The mother board is amoung the best i've worked on so far, damn fast and oodles of room for mods ect.
    Its that specific make of G-card that is the prob.
    I feel that if you get a GB motherboard its best to go with the same make graphics card to avoid unforseen compatibility issues.

    cheers :approve:

    Does this one still need to be a sticky? We've all seen it so many times...

    Maybe the compatibility issue is now gone. Maybe a BIOS or driver update fixed it.

    This shouldn't be a sticky anymore. But only the mods know.....
