Graphics Cards... which one to use?

I don't know what kind of graphic card I should buy for it! I don't know much about these motherboards! Should I use an ATI HD Graphics card I have or should I run out and but an NVIDI or something! I'm new to these mother boards!

Will a DDR3 graphic card work as it should work on a DDR2 motherboard or ram


Add more RAM
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the
Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.

You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibilitybefore making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.
computer users often get confused when assembling or upgrading their first computer. While the most common error is made when distinguishing system memory, RAM, from hard drive space, gaming computers have an extra wrinkle to worry about.

Graphics cards use memory separately from the system memory mounted on the motherboard. Some graphics cards use the more typical DDR standard, though it's permanently attached to the graphics card circuitboard, while others use the new GDDR standard.

For the most part, the internals of the graphics card aren't relevant to the rest of the computer it's all about the connection slot.What Is DDR Memory?


DDR, or "Double Data Rate," is the standardized random access memory format for most desktop and laptop computers.
DDR RAM comes in different generational standards: DDR, DDR2, DDR3 and the newer DDR4.

RAM chips, known as DIMMs, come in only one format, as do the DIMM slots on motherboards, so a DDR3-compatible motherboard memory slot can accept only DDR3 RAM DIMMs RAM that uses an earlier or later standard is incompatible.
GDDR Memory and Graphics Cards


Modern graphics cards use a modified memory standard called GDDR, short for Graphics Double Data Rate. While similar, GDDR and DDR memory is not the same:

Most importantly, GDDR memory is integrated into the graphics card and cannot be removed. Some older graphics cards use DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory, but this is also integrated into the card.

Graphics cards of varying power come with different kinds of RAM as of the date of publication, most cards feature GDDR4 or GDDR5 memory

Graphics Card Motherboard Connections
Discrete desktop graphics cards are mounted inside a computer case and plugged directly into the motherboard.

Three standard connections are used for graphics cards: PCI-Express (the most common and powerful), PCI and AGP.

It is this connection that determines how much data can be shared between the graphics card and the other system components, such as the CPU, the system RAM and the hard drive.

The expansion slot standard is the primary function for determining whether or not a graphics card is compatible with any given computer:

If your motherboard has a PCI-E slot, it's compatible, if not ideally so, with all PCI-E graphics cards.
Graphics Card Memory and System Memory Compatability

Memory is an important part of game performance, but graphics memory and system memory are two different things.

For better performance, it's best to have as much graphics memory AND system memory as possible, but the different standards used by the graphics card and the motherboard are largely irrelevant.

As long as the graphics card uses the correct expansion slot standard, it will work with the corresponding motherboard, regardless of its DDR version.

Can you add graphics card


Generally speaking, no. Most laptops have their graphics card soldered on to the main board. If you have an integrated graphics card, you cannot add one. Even if the laptop has a discrete graphics card, replacing it is a daunting task. Working on a laptop can lead to ruin if you don't know what you're doing. Even if you do get to the graphics card and remove it, the replacement card can be extremely expensive. In general, it is not worth it to try and upgrade the graphics card, or add a graphics card, to a laptop.
On a desktop, you most certainly can add a graphics card.

Any pci graphic cards avalible in market????????


There are two main brands for pci graphics card available in India 1. ATI and 2.Nvidia. and you can get them from any graphics card dealer in India. But you should buy a graphics card which best suits your system and your requirements. If you need it for gaming, designing or programming then go for high end graphics cards like 5650 or 5770 and if you want the PC only for basic use then go for cheap graphics cards.

Which is the suitable graphics card for my motherboard?


We should know what kind of computer you have, and what chipset is on the motherboard.
What are you planning to do with the card installed. Play games? What kind of card is suggested by a game? (if it is to be used for gamming).
More information would help.

Can I My motherboard support a PCI video card?


Hi there.
Your motherboard will support both kinds of Video card.
PCI is quite old and is only supported up to 128MB of video memory.
PCI Express is new technology and is by far the best card that you can buy giving you the best graphics experience and can support up to 1GB of graphics memory making it good for gaming.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Can i put a graphics card for my intel D915GVWB mother board?


You can not use PCI-EXPRESS graphics cards. Only AGP 2/4X Graphics Cards Supported ( 1.5V Only) You should look for This kind of Graphics cards.

I recommend , You must try changing your Motherboard with processor and buy a graphics card ( powerful one) to play these games. Otherwise You wont enjoy any of those games you mentioned.

n.b : a common PCI-E card has 16x speed where you cannot use more than 4x on your system.

Graphics card


OK, Your motherboard has a 'PCI Express* x16 bus add-in card connector'. It should be the closest connector to your processor. You can buy a card from ebay quite cheaply. A card like this would be suitable ->EBay UK Auction<- You will find like cards on EBay US if you.re stateside.

Graphics card for my computer


Hi

I am afraid Dimension 3000 has no support for PCI-e or AGP Video cards. You can however install a PCI Video card in one of the three PCI slots. Just ensure that the PCI Video Card you get is universal (i.e. supports both 3.3 and 5 volts).

When you have your new PCI Video card, check here for guide to install the hardware.

Graphics cards and sound cards


Hi

You don't need any special sound and graphics card to support AMD Athlon 1700+ Processor.

Just ensure you have a systemboard that support Socket 462 (also called Socket A). Sound and graphics support are generally a feature of the systemboard in use.

Check Socket A AMD Processor Installation Guide for more info - http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers_and_tech_docs/23986.pdf

P4VMM2 - what graphic card to use?


Hi,

Any current brand/model of an AGP video card would work with this motherboard (NVidia or ATI). The only limiting factor would be how much you would want to spend for it.

Not a preference but an observation dito sa tin, mas matagal buhay ng ATI compared sa NVidia.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
