Hello,
I am running an old dell precision workstation with original mobo and upgraded to a ddr5 memory graphics card. It says the memory on the G.c. isnt available w/the gpu meter I'm using. any suggestions?

More about : comp support ddr5

WHat "gpu meter"? As long as the PSU is sufficient, and your MB supports PCIe 2/2.1 cards, you might simply be dealing with old 'gpu meter' software and/or OS, whatever that is...

What chipset/socket format/cpu and OS are you running?

It supports it. You'll be fine. Just make sure to install the latest drivers from NVidia/AMD.

AMD cards don't have a "shader clock" that's why.

What card did you put in there?

You might need a new PSU.

What is the new video card -- and are you sure it's performance is any better than the old one that it replaced (Newer isn't always better !)

Ok so it's definitely an upgrade.

Right now I would have to say the PSU isn't able to give it enough juice. I think it recommends a 500W PSU, which you won't actually need that much but it kind of covers it's ass if you buy a low quality one that doesn't have a lot of amperage on the 12V rail. I've seen it happen several times that the card can't get enough power so the speed just isn't there.

If you get a Corsair, Antec, Seasonic PSU you could make do with a 450W model for sure, probably a 400W would work.

Also make sure you remove the Nvidia drivers.
