Buy what?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

Basically any passive gpu should work, but you will have to find one that is a pcie x1 (rare and more expensive), or modify (not recommended) your motherboard to allow for a standard x16 interface.

Your choice of OS might impact gpu decisions, but for starters:
Hd 6450
Gt520 or 610
Gt620

You could also take a look at those raisers for cryptocurrency mining. I don't know if it works for graphics, but at least for mining you can use PCIe X1 slots with normal graphic cards.

Can anybody confirm Gigabyte GA-J1800N-D2H does support RTC alarm wake-up? I don't really need to setup wake up timer via BIOS, but presence and functionality of 'sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm' (or '/proc/acpi/alarm(/proc/acpi/alarm' for older kernels) under Linux is essential for me.

sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm is present on my j1800-d2h running arch linux although I can't say if it is working. But I have no reason to use it since mine runs 24/7.

Thanks for info! If you can try, following command would give more detailed answer:

Code:
$ grep -i rtc /var/log/kern.log
RTC can wake from S4
...
rtc0: alarms up to one month

(I'm not familiar with arch linux - maybe searching in '/var/log/messages' or '/var/log/dmesg' is more relevant for your distro)

I can check that tonight when I get back home. In the mean time, I can only say that wake up from deep sleep (suspend) doesn't work on my machine. (ubuntu 14.04) I hear the computer waking up (trying to access the DVD drive for exemple) but no image. Maybe a GPU driver issue.

Thanks to all of you who answered my question about PCIe 1x GPU. I'll tell you if I finally get one. Still waiting for the mobo availability though.

Seems PCI-E X1 GPUs are going for less then $100. At least those that I see on amazon are like this one for example http://www.amazon.com/HIS-Silence-Displa...pd_cp_pc_0

Then you got cards like this if you want to go NVIDIA http://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-Expr...B003D08R2W

Perfect! Thanks a lot! All is clear now.. Wink

Noticed some new drivers up for Windows 7 and 8 64 bit for the Gigabyte J1800 mobo. No new Bios yet..
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product...881#driver

I will be installing them later this week.

I got a Gigabyte GA-J1800N-D2H about 2 weeks ago.

It works like a charm out of the box almost.
I updated to the F3 bios.
Installed ubuntu 14.04 and xbmc 13.
It plays everything I have is totally silent runs cool and the xbmc interface is fast.

Had 2 issues that took some time resolving but are now fixed.
The first one was getting my mce remote to work and the second was some tearing in the video.
The remote problem was solved with.
1. Upgrading to mainline kernel
Code:
mkdir -p /tmp/kern && cd /tmp/kern
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-headers-3.14.1-031401_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_all.deb
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-headers-3.14.1-031401-generic_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_amd64.deb
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-image-3.14.1-031401-generic_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.14.1-*.deb linux-image-3.14.1-*.deb
sudo reboot
source http://www.yourownlinux.com/2014/04/inst...linux.html


2. Using the dkms_mceusb module instead of the one builtin the kernel
Code:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tikhonov/fixes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mceusb-dkms
sudo reboot
source http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2203116

The tearing problem was solved by doing this with-nvidia-331
Code:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:timo-jyrinki/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2debian
source http://askubuntu.com/questions/450593/ho...nvidia-331

the only problem I have left is that the efi boot fails sometimes.
When I shutdown the box and start it up again or reboot I just get the efi shell with no boot options.
Shut it down again and it boots up normally.
Any one having the same problem ?

What does that have anything to do with nvidia ?? or do you have a dedicated GPU ?
