  1. Yes.
    That card does not require a lot of power to run.
  2. My CPU specs are
    RAM 3 gb DDR2
    Mobo DG31PR
    CPU E7200
    and PSU 650W...... will it bottleneck

    No, not at all, as unreal said it is a low powered card and gets all its power from your pci e slot. Even a 450W would be fine for that card

    So i can go for sapphire 1G GDDR5 HD 7750. yeah

    Yes, as long as your motherboard has a pci e x16 lane

    But in 7750 it needs a PCI 3.0 mine is 2.0, will i get the same performance as in 3.0.:/

    Thanks (Y)
  8. PCI-E 3.0 GPU cards are backward compatible with PCI-E 2.0, so it will work fine... You should have x16 lanes available in that slot, even x8 works fine. It's when you drop to only x4 PCI lanes that you get into trouble....

    You might want to check out a 7770 bit more power for not much more money......

    Yes, no drop in performance, the 3.0 slot just allows for a higher bandwidth than a 2.0 slot but it will only be at an advantage if the gpu itself can output at that bandwidth which is not the case

    Does RAM has something to do with VGA cards????
  11. Yes the RAM on you video card (GPU) is important to game play. When you don't have enough to support the game, you'll see VERY marked slow downs and stutters. This will happen even on the most powerful cards as data is swapped in and out of RAM.

    You can play with a 1Gb video card on today's games, BUT, you will have to reduce settings (especially anti-aliasing) to keep memory usage below 1Gb....

    On a 2Gb card RAM will not be a limitation (Only a few exceptions) on display resolutions up to 1920x1080... So, you card won't be slowed down to swap data in/out of RAM.

    You wont really see a performance improvement from a 2gb vs 1gb model of the same graphics card. Yes, more video memory does help out at higher resolutions such as 1080p or higher and games that use allot of high resolution textures and AA. If you play on a low resolution below 1080p, anyway I don't think a 7750 will be suited for 1080p gaming, but generally 1gb of video memory should be enough at those resolutions, and for that card

    The more important thing is the speed of the memory such as GDDR3 and GDDR5 (faster), that makes a difference

    I meant my RAM is DDR2 will it have any affect if i install 7750

    It will still work but ddr2 is obsolete/slow and you should consider getting ddr3 ram, but that would require a motherboard upgrade
