compatibility between graphic card mobo

Does a graphic card have to compatible with a motherboard and will these work together?
evga geforce gtx 650 Ti 1071 Mhz 1Gb

Does it matter that the graphics card uses GDDR5 and the motherboard uses DDR3?

    Modern m/b all use PCIe lanes and all modern cards work on any of these boards. What you have chosen will work fine. The GPU DDR is independent of what the m/b uses so it will not make any difference.

    You might also want to look at the gtx 650 TI BOOST - big difference over the Ti.

  2. 1. Yes, though it's very difficult to find a GPU that is not compatible with a certain motherboard.
    2. No
  3. What memory the motherboard uses has nothing to do with what memory the video card has on it. The board has a 16x pci-e slot so it should work as long as the power supply can handle it.

    Thanks for the help!
  5. You're welcome!
  6. I think maybe the mods should make a sticky about card memory vs system memory (and DDR versions) since it comes up quite often.
  7. That works only if the asker is posting directly from the forum and reads the stickies first. I suspect a lot of the questions originate on the home page under the current postings - "ask a question"
