Bare minumum for a 8800gt graphics card is 450 watts BUT seeing as you have a decent gaming rig in order to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your rig you are going to want to go for

700w+ Power supply.

this is so that under high power strain (gaming) your hardware still runs at full specification rather then decreased due to power shortage.

As a side note i would reccomend going for a reliable brand such as antec or arctic when purchasing power supplies for reliability. This is because if you get a cheap power supply you may come to regret it if it breaks. shor circuiting on a cheap power supply can kill the motherboard (personal experience) and that will cost a whole lot more than an extra 20 pounds for a decent PSU.

Hope that helps.

500 watts is enough but make it sure that the power supply is dual fan to avoid over heating.

I have intel dg41rq motherboard with 2 gb kingston 667 mhz in one slot. can i put another 2 gb ram in other slot. if yes then should it have the same specification?


Intel DG41RQ Motherboard has two DDR2 (DIMM) sockets.
It Support DDR2 800 or DDR2 667 MHz DIMMs. Since you already have a 667 MHz RAM, it is recommended that you add another RAM of the same specification (DIMM DDR2 667 MHz)
However, if you add 800 MHz DIMM with 667 MHz, both would perform at 667 MHz. RAMs of different bus speed and latency usually work together but the performance is compromised.
It is always better to have RAM in pairs of same specification.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have intel(R)pentium(R)4cpu 3.00GHz(2cpu) & intelD945GCR motherboard & 512mb DDR2 ram this is my pc , this will be work slow for me how will reduce this problum i think do some cheanges in...


You can install a total of 2Gb or 4Gb RAM on this motherboard.
The specifications for the RAM are as follows -
Memory
• Two 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
• Support for DDR2 533 or DDR2 400 MHz DIMMs
• Support for up to 4 GB of system memory

Please tell me which type of support for D102GGC2 for 2gb ram i want extension ?


Your motherboard have the following specifications:
Two 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
• Support for DDR2 533 MHz and DDR2 400 MHz DIMMs
• Support for up to 2 GB of system memory

So either get 1 2GB RAM DDR2 with 533 or 400 MHz. It is maximum for your motherboard or have 2 1 GB accordingly.

Pc5300 on pc3200 slot to upgrade msi 845gvm-v


PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM, and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module. "PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible. PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins. PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins. DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.

You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2

And yes your motherboard should accept 2GB max

2G Memory Upgrade


I had similar problem with CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

If this is your RAM:
Corsair 1024MB Value Select PC2-4200 (533MHz) DDR2 RAM, 128Mx64non-ECC, 240-pin DIMM, Unbuffered, CL4, Lifetime warranty (VS1GB533D2) Then it is high density. You need low density to work, look for one ending with an 8, not 64.

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.
