Seeking replacement for GeForce GTX275 Tags: Nvidia Graphics Cards RAM Geforce Graphics Product Last response: November 12, 2012 8:37 PM in Graphics & Displays Share kkocka November 12, 2012 3:04:23 PM Hi guys. In short, my video card is starting to die out. Drivers aren't fixing anything, and after all I built my machine back in 2009...it could just be time. I currently use: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would like something pretty similar, if not slightly better like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Can I use video cards with DDR5 ram, despite my mobo and current video card using DDR3? I don't know if these things need to align between mobos and video cards. Other system specs: Win 7 Home Premium w/SP1 Mobo (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) Intel i7 @ 2.67ghz 12gb RAM DDR3 Any help would be appreciated as I'm looking to ordering soon and as my computer is showing serious signs of dying soon.

I might still be in a very old school thought that overclocking sets you up for a giant risk in weak stability.
