I have an intel 35EC motherboard and i want to buy a GDDR3 graphic card(say NVidia GeForce 150). I'm just not sure if its compatible or not...is thr anyway i cud know if it will work or not. Thanks.


Concerned that the graphic card's GDDR3 graphics memory isn't compatible with the Intel DG35EC's system memory? (DDR2 Sdram)

Don't be.

The graphic card's graphics memory runs independent of the computer's system memory.

The graphic card could have GDDR5 graphics memory, and it wouldn't matter.

1) http://ark.intel.com/products/34689/Intel-Desktop-Board-DG35EC

2) http://nvidiagraphicscards.com/nvidia-geforce-gts-150-information.php

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_100_Series#OEM_GeForce_100


What you need to be concerned with is;

A) Will the card FIT in your computer case?

The card is approximately 4 and 3/8ths inches Tall, (4.376) and 10 and a half inches Long. (10.5)
It takes up the room of TWO slots in Width.

B) Does your Power Supply have enough power?
The card uses 141 Watts by - itself when operating at maximum.

Your Power Supply should have at least 24 Amps on the 12 Volt power rail.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Check your computer's RAM cards. On them should be a serial number. Punch that number into a search engine (probably on someone else's computer since you need to open up your own) and see what type of system memory you have.

DDR3 is very common in newer computers, so having DDR2 memory may be your problem.

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

HELP HELP HELP HELP:( :( :( :( :( :(


Unfortunately, most notebook computers (yours included) have built in graphics and not a standalone graphics card that you can swap out or add to like on desktop models. I'm afraid the only solution to the problem is to replace the laptop, making sure you get one that has an NVidia or ATI removable graphics card in them; however they are quire pricey. If you wish to pursue that route, let me know and I will see what my distributors have in stock.

Wont turn on


The computer start up? or does't work?
If the computer doesn't work, check first the power supply.
Second, the memory and the video card.

See first which video card is supported by the motherboard (Agp, 2x, 4x, 8x) or use some PCI video card.

Looking to buy a new graphics card


You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.

Computer and video card memory/ram


Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.

MSI Graphics card keeps making computer lock up unexpectedly. Plese Help!!!


You could have bad memory or you could have shorted the memory out with a static charge while you where handling the memory. Try to get one stick of memory you know is in working order and which is of the proper soecifications for your system such as un buffered or buffered registered or non registered . You will need to know the proper memory required for your motherboard by researching the manufactuers web site for your model number of your motherboard. Some dimm slots are set in order [1,2,3,4,] you will need to locate the number 1, dimm slot and make sure you insert the memory stick in that location . While doing this make sure you discharge you body from a static electric charge by using a wrist ground strap or touching the power dupply metal case befor handling any of your pc parts as you install them ! I hope this helps .
