im really stuck here.. im not much of a computer known guy. all i know is how to put them together load the software etc. im trying to fine a very perfect video card for a mortherboard. the mortherboard runs on DDR2 but the video cards i have looked at and they are like so powerfull runs on high res. but they are all DDR3 will a DDR3 video card run on my computer. or do i really need to get my self a DDR2 here is the mortherboard im geting.
The memory on graphics cards is independant of main system memory, for example my main RAM is DDR2 while my HD4870 uses GDDR5.
Unless you`re really short of cash, do n`t buy a graphics card that uses GDDR2, it`ll slow the card quite a bit.
If you tell us what CPU you plan on using and what monitor resolution you`ll be using we`ll be able to offer advice on a suitable card.
yes im sorry it's gddr2. what is the best cpu for a gammer. i have always told amd is the best cpu for a gammer. but im stuck i have heard so many things i just dont know what to belive... all i know is i want the computer to be fast. and can be able to play every single game on the market. and for the resolution at lest 1920 x 1200 or more. so you saying is that i can run a gddr5 and it still work on my computer even thoought i have a ddr2 mortherboard?
if so that means i can run the 2GB ATI RADEON HD 4870 X2
