4670 1gb -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


the motherboard has a PCIE so don't worry about compatibility.

the cards you listed, well, they just SUCK big time, they probably penform similar as a 785g, which is an onboard, definitely not recommended for any graphic designing

nothing less than that for a very minimum of a half decent computer

Hey ...thanks for the suggestion ......and I think tomorrow itself I will buy the later one as I am on deadline for submitting the portfolio for admission ....Thanks a lot again....and one more final question ....I have 3 RAM Cards in 3 slots ...2 of 256 mb n on of 512 mb ...all of them have same frequency i.e. 333MHz and I want to know if I get another RAM Card of 1GB which has different frequency than those I already have ..does it work that way ? I mean the place where I stay ..people create temporary scarcity for more money and when I said I need a particular card of 333 MHz data frequency ..It will cost me more than DDR of 400 MHz card ...So If you could tell me if the way I specified above works ..will help me ....Thanks again ...

it will work.

you can run ddr400 alongside a ddr333, it will just run at the DDR333 speed.

the ddr400 underclocks to match the ddr333 specs so you can use both

It should work, but not every motherboard likes having several types of memory installed.
Read the motherboard manual before making a decision.
If you have lost it, most manufacturers have online manuals on their websites.
