Memory
915G Express chipset
DDR SYNCH DRAM NON-ECC MEMORY
It is not necessary to add memory in pairs. Memory upgrades are accomplished by adding single or multiple DIMMs of the same or
varied sizes. This chart does not represent all possible memory configurations. The Intel 915G Express chipset supports non-ECC
DDR PC2700 (333-MHz) and non-ECC DDR PC3200 (400-MHz) memory.
For best performance, add in pairs, add in same channel, and do not mix speeds. For dual-channel performance, the total amount
of memory in each channel should be equal. If speeds are mixed, speed will default to the slowest DIMM.
MAXIMUM MEMORY (SMALL FORM FACTOR AND CONVERTIBLE MINITOWER)
Supports up to 4-GB of DDR SYNCH DRAM. Not all memory configurations possible are represented below.

Keep the computer away from excessive moisture, direct moisture and the extremes of heat and cold, to ensure that unit is
operated within the specified operating range.
Leave a 10.2 cm (4 in) clearance on all vented sides of the computer to permit the required airflow.
Never restrict airflow into the computer by blocking any vents or air intakes.
Do not stack computers on top of each other or place computers so near each other that they are subject to each other's recirculated or preheated air.
Occasionally clean the air vents on the front, back, and any other vented side of the computer. Lint, dust and other foreign
matter can block the vents and limit the airflow.
If the computer is to be operated within a separate enclosure, intake and exhaust ventilation must be provided on the
enclosure, and the same operating guidelines listed above will still apply.
Temperature Range
Operating Temperature: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)
Non-operating Temperature: 22° to 140° F( 30° to 60° C)
Relative Humidity
Operating Humidity 10% to 90% (non condensing at ambient)
Non-operating Humidity 5% to 95% (non condensing at ambient)
Maximum Altitude
10,000 ft (3048 m)
(unpressurized)
30,000 ft (9144 m)
NOTE: Operating temperature is de-rated 1.0 deg C per 300 m (1000 ft) to 3000 m (10,000 ft) above sea level, no direct
sustained sunlight. Maximum rate of change is 10 deg C/Hr. The upper limit may be limited by the type and number of options
installed.

Integrated Graphics
Media Accelerator 900
Resolutions Supported1
3D/2D Controller
Microsoft® DirectX® 9 based with support for Pixel Shader 2.0, 4:1
anisotropic filtering, Gaussian texture filtering, shadow maps, volumetric
textures, double-sided stencil buffers, and 4 pixel pipes.
VGA Controller
Integrated
Bus Type
PCI Express™ x16 (Internal graphics is automatically disabled if an external
graphics card is installed. If the external graphics card is installed in a PCI
slot, the internal graphics can be re-enabled using the system's BIOS setup
utility. If the external graphics card is installed in the PCI Express™ slot, the
internal graphics cannot be enabled).
RAMDAC
Integrated, 400 MHz
Memory
Graphics memory is shared with system memory. Graphics memory usage
can vary from 8-128 MB depending on the amount of system memory
installed and system load. 8 MB is pre-allocated for graphics use at system
boot time. Additional memory is allocated for graphics using Intel's Dynamic
Video Memory Technology (DVMT) to balance the optimum amount of
memory between graphics and other system use.
Memory < 256 MB: 8 MB pre-allocated (for DOS) + 24 MB DVMT : max
frame buffer of 32 MB
256 MB <= Memory < 512 MB:8 MB pre-allocated + 56 MB DVMT: max
frame buffer of 64 MB
512 MB <= Memory: 8 MB pre-allocated + 120 MB DVMT : max frame
buffer of 128 MB
Controller Clock Speed 333 MHz
Overlay Planes
Single overlay support with 5x3 filtering
Maximum Color Depth
32 bits/pixel
Maximum Vertical Refresh 85 Hz at up to 1920x1440, 75Hz at 2048x1536. Varies with mode and
Rate
configuration. See table below.
Multi-display Support
Support for one CRT via the motherboard's VGA connector. Support for an
additional DVI-D display via the optional DVI ADD2 card. Dual independent
displays and dual synchronous (Twin or Clone mode) displays are supported.
Graphics/Video API
Microsoft DirectX®9, DirectXVA®, VMR9, GDI/GDI+; OpenGL® 1.4.

Modes listed are supported with a single active display. The supported mode list for multiple active displays is a subset of this list.
Not all modes will support video playback and some supported modes may use software MC (motion compensation) rather than
hardware MC. Not all modes will support 3D acceleration depending on the system configuration (e.g., resolution selected, size of
frame buffer, number of installed memory modules, etc.).
NOTE: Other resolutions and refresh rates may be selectable but are not recommended.
