I am running NVIDIA XFX 7300 GT on Debian Sid with latest stable driver 1.0.9755-1 .
Now in my Xorg.0.log it is shown as:
Code:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Support for GLX with the Damage and Composite X extensions is
(II) NVIDIA(0):     enabled.
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce 7300 GT at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Memory: 262144 kBytes
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 05.73.22.50.53
(II) NVIDIA(0): Detected PCI Express Link width: 4X
(--) NVIDIA(0): Interlaced video modes are supported on this GPU
(--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on GeForce 7300 GT at PCI:1:0:0:

Thumbs down Gigabyte is a fraud company :S

Gigabyte 81915ME-GV Intel 915GV chipset with pci-express slot x16 available.
onboard intel gfx too available,but automagically disabled once the gfx card is pushed in.
:thx all,
I found the answer below in the gigabyte website.but it seems to me as they cheated me :x

Uhh, that's a nasty surprise. Hopefully 4x is enough to feed a 7300.
