  1. yeas your motherboards supported memory has nothing to do with your gpu's memory, the gpu has its own dedicated gddr5 memory onboard, as long as you got pci-e 2.0 you'll be fine
  2. Graphics DDR's has definitely no relation with Ram DDR's, no matter even if you had an Motherboard with DDR2 ram you can fix GDDR5 easily with not a single issue, so VRAM and RAM DDR's has thier own paths.

    Your mobo is microATX motherboard from Pegatron. It has two PCI slots, one PCIe x1 and one PCIe x16 slot. Chipset is H61. Coming to your question, yes this motherboard will run HD 7700 series cards from AMD.

    Generally, this motherboard can run any graphics card be it gddr5 or ddr3. Also make one thing clear, RAM or physical memory has nothing to do with GPU's compatibility on motherboard. This is because, mobos have their VRAM built-in themselves.
  4. oh well thanks guys.Btw Easylover are u really sure that this motherboard has a pcie 2.0 slot??And i can run ddr5 gfx card.
  5. Pl read my post carefully, I did not mention generation of the PCIe slots rather on the speeds of the PCIe slots. Regardless of the generation i.e 20.0/3.0 as your mobo has PCIe x16 slot, so you can run any graphics card on it.
  6. Thank you so much it helped me alot now i will buy the card ASAP
