  1. hi there me again... been searching round... and im thinking.. will this video card do??? will it be able to use the
    ati hybrid graphics feature??

    HIS Radeon HD 4850 Video Card - 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, CrossFireX Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, HDMI Support, VGA Support

    and im still wondrin bout the ram... pls help me out im a newbie... im still w8n
  2. yeah that gpu will work on that Mobo, just disable the on board gpu, and the ddr2 will not confilct with the memory on the GPU so ddr2 will be just fine as its the only ram u can use on that board

    Just looked at the board, and for ECS looks really nice, go with the ATI 4850 u will have no problems there!!!
  3. If you really want that mobo, check it out here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135075&Tpk=ECS%2bA780GM-A ...Newegg usually has better deals on computer parts than Tigerdirect does...and usually shipping is cheaper too...*and do not buy anything from Tigerdirect that involves a mail in rebate*

    As for the gpu, the 4850 will work wonders...but I don't think it'll work with the hybrid graphics feature...i think that only works for 3450s...
