  • here is the techical specification of your board

  • 184-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
  • Graphics Support: PCI Express x16
  • Chipset: ATI RC410 IGP
  • Error Detection Support: Non-ECC only
  • Max Component Density: 1024
  • Max Unbuffered DDR SDRAM: 2048MB(approx 2G)
  • Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
  • Supported DRAM Types: DDR SDRAM only
  • USB Support: 2.x Compliant
  • Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules. Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
    *Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS.
The maximum amount of memory that your system can use is actually limited in two ways — not only is there a maximum amount of memory that your computer motherboard can accept, there is also a maximum amount of memory that your operating system (OS) can accept.

For instance, when you install 4GB of memory in a 32-bit Windows system (the most common version; 64-bit systems are typically used only by high-end users), your system will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. Is the problem bad memory?

Relax, there isn't a problem with the memory. Windows allows for 4GB of memory to be addressed, but this isn't 100 percent the same as having 4GB of physical memory.

What happens is that some of the addressable memory (regardless of how much you have physically installed) is reserved for use by page files or by some of the devices that you are using, such as a graphics card, PCI card, integrated network connections, etc., so it's unavailable for use as normal main memory.

The amount of memory needed for these devices is calculated by your system at startup; if you haven't maxed out the memory in your system, it's invisible to you, and all your physical memory (the RAM that's installed) is available for use. However if you've maxed out the DRAM in your system, this amount will be deducted from your physical memory, so you can't use 100% of your DRAM.

The maximum memory limitation varies by operating system; for instance, the 4GB memory limitation doesn't exist in 64-bit versions of Windows.

Memory maximums for current Microsoft® Windows OSs include:

  • Windows XP Home: 4GB

  • Windows XP Professional: 4GB

  • Windows XP 32-bit: 4GB

  • Windows XP 64-bit: 128GB

  • Windows Vista Home Basic: 4GB

  • Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit: 8GB

  • Windows Vista Home Premium: 4GB

  • Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit: 16GB

  • Windows Vista Ultimate: 4GB

  • Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit: 128GB+

  • Windows Vista 32-bit: 4GB

  • Windows Vista 64-bit: 128GB+
  • but *********** board can support up to 2G of memory as maximum


  • 184-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
  • Graphics Support: PCI Express x16
  • Chipset: ATI RC410 IGP
  • Error Detection Support: Non-ECC only

    for graphics card you can go for 8800GT , it's more than double the performance of a 9400GT, but it's also much more expensive the second digit represents the speed .hope this will help you pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

The board contains two separate, mutually exclusive graphics options. Either the integrated
graphics processor (contained within the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Northbridge) is used, or a PCI
Express x16 add-in card can be used. When a PCI Express x16 add-in card is installed, the ATI
Radeon Xpress 200 Northbridge graphics controller is disabled.

I have intel d101ggc motherboard, when i installed windows 7 ultimate I could find graphic driver installed. What should I do to play games on window 7 . I have 512mb of Ram with in-built 256 graphic...


Hi, the drivers are here:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Third-Party+Chipset+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Desktop+Board+D101GGC

You we`re right there is no drivers for windows 7.

But you can add a graphic card on the mainboard
compatible with windows 7.

I will recomend the nvidia gtx series.

Consider to add more memory if you planning to playing games.
At least 2 gigabytes of ram

Suggest Compatible Graphics Card for my D101GGC Motherboard m/c.


that board uses a pcix vid card go here and select any of these or buy one from where ever you want. make sure it is a pci express (pcix) card not a pcix 2.0 your mobo does not support the 2.0 cards.

a little advise if you want to paly serious games you will want at LEAST a geforce 6800 or gretaer card. an excellent gaming card for the money is a 9800 gtx about $100 or so look here:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?keywords=9800+gtx
you do not need the 3d cards they are expensive just look at #3 in that list. a good card for decent price. i personally use a xfx 9800 gtx to game with. no problems and most games can have the grphics turned right up. where you will run into trouble is with your single core pntium 3.2. that will limit how much you can turn everything up as some of the graphics options for games are controlled by the processor believe it or not. but still i would get a 9800 gtx if it were my system

Vista compatiable


intel doesnt list any vista drivers for that motherboard on there site so you might run into problems with the intergraded devices such as the ethernet,audio,chipset, & any intergraded video

You might be able to use the xp drivers but if theres problems it wouldnt be supported by intel

IS DDR SDRAM IS DDR II RAM OR DDR


No. DDR replaced the SD in RAM so SDRAM and DDR RAM are two completely different things but each ram type has its own frequency hence you get SDRAM 100(mhz) and SDRAM 133(Mhz) just like you get DDR 1 RAM at 266(mhz) and 400(mhz) and DDR 2 RAM at 533(mhz) and 800(mhz). Therefore as you can see how these things differ, but if your mboard takes SDRAM that it can take and frequency of SDRAM but you must ensure that all the frequencies of all your RAM modules in all your slots correspond otherwise you will have problems, meaning that if you decide to use 133mhz RAM then all your RAM modules that you use must be the same. Let me know how you go. thanks
