Can Geforce GT 740 1Gb GDDR5 128Bit work with ASRock G31M-S?

Hi,

My Powercolor HD5670 died on me so I'm looking for a replacement that can also work with latest rigs in the market.

I'm planning to replace everything 2 months from now, just saving at the moment.

I'm worried that if I buy the GT 740, it might not work on my current build.

Here's my spec:
processor: Dual-Core CPU E5400 2.70Ghz
mobo: ASRock G31M-S
ram: 2gb ddr2 (can't go up higher since my other slot's broken)
hdd: 300gb
psu: 500w generic

Any suggestions please?

  2. Best answer
    Yes, you have a x16 PCI-E slot in your mobo,therefore the 740 is compatible.
  3. Thanks guys! So I don't need to upgrade anything with my current build?

    especially my ram? :D
  4. It would be good if you've upgraded your ram, but still you would be able to play with descent fps. But don't expect to play watch dogs with the 2gb memory. At what res. would you be playing at?

    At 1280 x 720.

    I'm actually playing Swordsman Online which has the ff system requirements:
    Operating System: Windows® XP, Vista, 7, or 8
    CPU: Intel® Pentium® 4 2.0 GHz and above
    RAM: 2 GB (3 GB or more recommended for Vista/7/8)
    Hard Disk: 8 GB Free Space
    Graphic Display: DirectX 9.0c level GPU (Geforce 9800GT or newer) with 1GB Video RAM or more
    Sound Drivers: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
    Network: Broadband Internet connection (512kb download speed or more)


    But of course, I want to get a good gfx card that could also handle upcoming games.
  6. Yup,at 720P you would be fine.
    Sooner or later you would need to upgrade but for now you would be fine.
  7. Can u find a single channel 4gb ddr2 ram in your country?
  8. What of SAPPHIRE R7 250 1GB GDDR5 WITH BOOST? Which do you recon's better?

    Unfortunately, there is none. I've been looking for one for some time now.
  10. The R7 250 and the 740 are even in terms of gaming performance.( http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R7-250-vs-GeForce-GT-740 )
    Get the one which is cheaper. I think the 250 is,right?
    Here are the links to both the cards:

  11. GT 740 is cheaper here in PH so I'll prolly get it.

    I'm just worried that it might not work on the rig I'll buy later on (still thinking if I should get AMD FX6300 or Pentium 3.0ghz Haswell)

    Thank you very much for your reply @sourodip!
  12. You are welcome mate. :)
  13. My configuration is similar i want to know can install GTX 750 or 750ti
    My pc specs
