:)  Thanks for reply,So much for the new standard being backwards compatible...but ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 Synergy Edition 1 & 2 ( :sol:  ON FLIPKART.COM 1GB=Rs. 2729 & 2GB=Rs. 2782)GB DDR3 Graphics Card Power Supply Required is 300 W and you really think that i can put any gpu to that mobo :bounce:  as i already mentioned my specs. :o  This power requirement is really making me confuse.Does it make any difference in game FPS Or will result in system fail may be during boot process..... :sweat: 

:bounce:  ANOTHER QUESTION:
-Does ddr3 graphic card matters on my board????

-What about Forsa NVIDIA GT610 2 or 1 GB DDR3 Graphics Card they both have 900 MHz GPU Clock Speed but i don't know how much power supply it need...My first gpu was ati x1550 512mb edition which is no more this time i'am very serious for having a gpu..........

-can u suggest me more budget graphic card for my mobo.............lot of people with kickass motherboards cannot upgrade their gc..And that's a real shame...i'am also having the same problem.

:(  MY MIND IS FULL OF QUESTIONS CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN EVERYTHING IN BRIEF...... :cry:

See pci exp 2.1 card have only problem with old mobo.amd makes 2.1 and nvidia makes 2.0 card so it will work with old mobo for sure.do not get forsa one.they are bad company.get zotac 1gb one as 2gb is of no use in games.some motherboard manufacture has released bios update for old mobo to support 2.1 pci exp card.your power supply will work with gt 610 as it has low power consumption.but gt 610 not so good for gaming.you have to play games at low-med settings at 1024*768 res.

To add on to what everybody else is saying, the memory type on the graphics card (DDR3 on the card you are looking at) has nothing to do with the memory on the motherboard. They do not have to match, otherwise those of us with video cards using GDDR5 would be in trouble!
