Hi,
Okay, you don't need two video cards. Your 4 memory slots are grouped in two's. One set is black and blue, and the other set is black and blue also. These are your dual memory channels.

The reason you can't see more than 2 gig ram is because you are probably not running 64 bit Windows with a 64 bit processor.

32 bit windows will only display 2 gigs, but max memory is 4 gigs. It will draw on the extra 2 gigs if ever it is needed, but this does not happen very often, if ever.

Does a 1gb nvidia 9500gt work on a dell dimension 2400


The big question is whether the 2400 has a PCI Express slot. It does not. The 9500GT is a PCI Express 2.0 x16 card

I want to upgrade my computer specs... hope you can help me.. CPU: intel core2 duo E4600 2.4Ghz/800Mhz/2mb L2 cache/65MOnm MOBO: elite 945GCT -M2/1333 (v1.0), 1945GC/C2D/1333MHZ/DDR2 667/PCI-E memory:...


If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".

So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.

I wanna know that is XFX 9800gt supported on intel DG31PR motherboard or any PCI express motherboard ? I also wanna know that is it a good combination of 9800gt DDR3 1gb and DDR2 RAM 2gb?? Please reply me...


nVidea 9800gt is a good card... probably not a question of if the MB will support it as much as if your power supply will. It needs a secondary 6 pin power connection.

Any MB with 16x PCI slow will run the board. The different RAM types on the MB and Video card will nto matter as much as the throughput of the PCI bus...

2GB ram on you main board, hope you are not running anything serious.... I do a fair amount of video with a 9500GT. Quad Core 2.66, 6 GB ram and am looking to upgrade to an I7 with 12GB and a nVidia 250 or better....

I want some information about Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR 2


If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,

Promble with Ram


No the problem isn't the ram, or video card, or lack of video cards.

The problem stems from using a 32 bit O/S, (Operating System), like Windows XP Home, or Windows XP Pro. (The 32 bit version of XP Pro. Microsoft made a 64-bit version of Windows XP Pro)

A 32 bit O/S will only 'recognize' UP TO 3.2GB's of ram. (Sometimes up to 3.5GB's)
You need a 64 bit O/S so that your computer will recognize all 4GB's of ram, when it is installed.

32 Bit? 64 Bit? What is all of this? It's kind of hard to explain in a few sentences. I would like to refer you to these links on Wikipedia, to explain 32 bit, and 64 bit further,

A.32-Bit:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/32_bit
B.64-Bit:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit

More ram and vdeo card


it sounds as if your MoBo is seeing the video adapter as a source of ram. if that is the case, then installing memory in units of 1Gb will cause a stick to not be seen, therefore utilized. you may want to refer to you manual for memory limits and poosible comparibility issues. they are usually quite in depth. also, make sure that they are all the same make model and speed. these issues have wreaked havoc on the prettiest of pc's.
