    Just to clear my doubts the mobo doesn't have PCI express 2.0( only pci express x16 add-in card connector )and only DDR2 memory. will the recommended card still work.
  4. I'm pretty sure that I checked your motherboard for a PCIe slot.

    Graphics cards are backward compatible to lower PCIe versions.

    If you are in doubt, take a picture of your motherboard & post the photo here.

    This specification is same as my motherboard's. what about ddr3 of graphics card and only ddr2 memory support of mobo. isn't there any conflict. also will the raphics card go into the pciex16 or other port.
  6. No conflict between the DDR3 ram in the graphics card and the DDR2 in the mobo. They operate independently & serve different purpose. Don't worry about it.
