Hello, i have asus p5smxse mobo. i have recently bought evga 9800gt 1gb memory ddr3 i wanted to know that if my mobo can support ddr3 graphic card i'm also looking for a new mobo can you help me out. i'm looking for a budget gaming mobo (which can support my 9800gt card).
Processor: intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 Ghz
Motherboard : Asus p5smxse
Hard drive: 80 Gb Maxtor
PSU: 350 Watts
Standard CD Rom
at this setup. my pc cannot even run NFS Most Wanted smoothly. I had to keep the graphics at there lowest to play the game. i bought the 9800gt card and intalled it. Even with the graphics card, i had to lower the graphics in the game to play CRYSIS. Honestly, i have seen people playing games like crysis, prince of persia and COD4 on Pentium 4 PCs with 9500gt 512MB cards smoothly with high graphics. My Question is if these games can run on p4s with 512 cards than why can't thy run smoothly on my core 2 duo with 1 GB card. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!. Oh! ! more thing in my previous post i said that i am looking for a budget gaming mobo. well! i am a currently considering to buy XFX 630i board. can u guide me about it, u know is it a good board or whatever. Thanks
