  1. Yes, you can add a dedicated GPU to an H55 motherboard to use in place of the on-board. As for the GPU, I recommend the EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card.

    Correct... You can only run either on-board graphics or a dedicated graphics card at one time (unless the board & card supports hybrid Crossfire/SLI).

    Its around 100 to 150$ il.e Rs.5000/- and also please give your opinion on GA H55H UD2H Board.Thanks (Srinivas)
  10. GPU Choice: XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB would probably be your best bet at $150 or lower

    MOBO: The GA-H55H-UD2H is a decent single card board. I would not plan on running a dual card setup on that board.
