Most likely, yes...... Graphics cards are pretty much interchangeable.

SOURCE: DDR & SDRAM supported?

Hi,
I have been using my my Jetway V266B motherboard with 256MB of some unidentified PC2700 RAM for at least a couple of years and it seems to be pretty stable with no problems. I had the BIOS set with the processor (Athlon XP2400+) set to 100MHz and the memory at 133MHz. I don't know whether that is lucky although I should be expected to be OK since you are just underclocking the RAM a little bit.
I have just ordered another 512MB of PC2700 from Ebuyer. I''m keeping my fingers crossed that this will worK OK with my existing RAM when I fit it.

SOURCE: graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series

Your board has an AGP 8x inteface slot, the ATI Radeon 9550 graphics card has a RAMDAC Clock Speed of 400 MHz and 256 mb of DDR SDRAM memory onboard, would be a good upgrade, for about 60 bucks. Your board has 4 memory slots and will support up to 4 gigs of ram.(you will need a 450 watt power supply )
For best performance, memory should be installed in pairs.
CRUCIAL 2 X 1mb Part #: CT2KIT12864Z40B • DDR PC3200
would be a good choice.

Hope this helps...and answers your queastion.

SOURCE: Which Graphics card is supported

The graphics card's ram memory is independent of the system ram memory.

Doesn't matter if your computer system ram memory is DDR Sdram, and the graphics card has GDDR5 graphics ram memory, and 1GB of it.
(1024MB)

To expound;

Integrated, (Also known as OnBoard Graphics) Graphics borrows from the system resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
A graphics card has it's own Processor.
The GPU. {Graphics Processing Unit}

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

A graphics card also has it's own ram memory. Graphics Ram Memory.


The best expansion slot for a graphics card on an Intel D101GGC motherboard is the PCI Express x16 expansion slot.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 (For Intel)
The code name is RC410

The ATI RC410 chipset was brought out in March of 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges_2

In 2005 the PCI Express 1.1 technology was being used.
PCI Express 2.0 technology wasn't brought out until January of 2007.

Your motherboard's PCI Express x16 slot is using the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

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

Can you use the newer PCI Express 2.0, or PCI Express 2.1 graphics cards?

YES

PCI Express 2.0, and PCI Express 2.1 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

Will you get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card?

NO

BUT you won't notice either, trust me.

You can use a graphics card based on ATI or Nvidia.
Doesn't matter.

What does matter IMHO, is to buy the best graphics card for the money, and not purchase one that will
'Break the Bank'.

You have to read through all the hype, and the flashy advertising, and make a choice based on deductive reasoning and intelligent thought.

More 'Bang for the Buck'.

You also have to base what kind of Wattage your power supply puts out, and the maximum Amp's on the 12 Volt power rail. (Or combine the 12 Volt power rails, if multiple 12 Volt rails are used)

When you look at the graphics card you wish to purchase, look for the Minimum System Requirements.
The Power Supply minimum Wattage requirement will be listed.

If it is a real powerful graphics card, the minimum 12 Volt Amp's will be listed also.

Two examples;

1) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6680896&CatId=3669

Scroll down to the > Specifications heading.
Read the bottom of the list > Minimum PSU Wattage Requirement > 400 Watts

A 400 Watt PSU (Power Supply Unit) will have at least 20 Amps on the 12 Volt power rail.
{It isn't listed in the minimum PSU requirements. This is a given}

[Is the above graphics card a decent card? You Betcha! 192 Stream Processors]


2) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6463720&CatId=3669

Uses less power than a comparable Nvidia GPU based graphics card.
A 300 watt power supply will be just fine.

[Note*

The minimum power requirements set by the graphics card manufacturer, are based upon a test system build.
They use a test computer with a gamer motherboard, powerful Processor, lot's of Ram Memory, and the power required for their graphics card.

The minimum Wattage (And 12 Volt power rail Amperage) is Not just based upon what the graphics card will use.

For questions please post in a Comment.

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series


HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Can i run ati radeon HD3650 512mb on asus k8N motherboard


firstly you need to make sure *********** board has a PCIe slot or a AGP... this is where your ATI HD3650 will go...see the graphic 512mb has nothing to with your main system RAM which is also 512mb.. so they wont be any problems as such and both will work together without any problems... but i suggest you to add another 512mb to your system RAM.. the difference between DDR and DDR2 is that... DDR2 is a bit newer and is faster in terms of memory read/write/access... do let me know if u have any futher problems....

    Radeon graphics card and 3rd RAM slot conflict


    I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:

    Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs

    If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.

    What kind of memory are you using?

    Graphics card upgrade


    Not compatable at all.
    DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms
    Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.

    DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms.
    DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

    If your question has to do with buying a video card that is going to use DDR2 ram, that would be a faster graphics card. You can also get video cards with DDR3 ram which again is even faster.
    Oddly enough in respect to system memory DDR2 is supposed to be faster than DDR yet the DDR memory cost more than the DDR2. Go figure.
