Hey......
I also having the same problem with my graphic card and PC.
I brought a ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3 RAM. I recently consulted with some people in the repairing and manufacturing of PC's and they said that "your motherboard has DDR2 RAM and this card DDR3" I wanted to Know can this be possible. Does the can make any difference.

My PC uses 945GCT-HM motherboard Core2 Duo Processor with 1GB DDR2 RAM and it uses Intel GMA 950 Graphics for on board Chip-set .


Regards
Sushant

Thats pure BS or they really dont know much about GPUs.
The graphic memory type has nothing to do with the system RAM, both are completely independent.

Your Mobo can support any PCIe 2.0 card. (May not work with 2.1s) Though what is your budget and needs from the upgrade? the 5450 isn't a great choice IMO as it sucks for gaming, for HD playback a HD4350 would be stellar.

Upgrading your Mobo isnt worth it, your Mobos fine.
There are cheaper cards than the 5450. How much are you willing to pay and where do you live?

Oh you have the 5450 already? What happens, does it not boot at all?
It could be compatibility with a 2.1 card, but it can also be a defaulted IGP.

See if it boots if you plug to cord on to VGA port of the Mobo. If so, go into BIOS and choose the option to use external cards when present.

Then return the 5450, and get a HD4650/4550/4350.
Dont upgrade the Mobo, the 5450 isnt a good card to begin with.
