How to choose an adequate graphic card


A graphics card is mainly composed of a processor, GPU (Graphic Processing Unit), and memory.

The graphics card is in itself a small PC dedicated to graphics applications, independent of the rest of the PC, the only link being the information passing through the port graphic and food.

Choosing a card is based on its needs and its budget:
  • For desktop applications, a map called "entry level" enough;
  • For multimedia applications, a map can read the desired video format is imperative;
  • For 3D video games (and generally all 3D applications), one more powerful is essential.

Structure of a graphics card

The essential component that will determine the performance of the graphics card is the GPU:
A modern GPU is based on different units calculation:
  • Processors Flow
  • Texturing units,
  • Raster units (ROPS).

The most important are the processors flows over the number of processors flow is important, the GPU will be more powerful (for architecture).
The model number on the card is linked to the GPU.

To enable the GPU to store its calculations, there are memory:
  • It varies in quantity:
    • 256 MB enough for the tickets range of previous generations;
    • 512 MB is sufficient for most current cards graphics;
    • 1GB is needed for cards with a very powerful GPU, the GTX 280;
    • Broadly speaking, the more you play in high resolution and filtering enabled, you need more memory.
  • It varies in type:
    • DDR2, DDR3, DDR4 or DDR5: The higher the figure, the greater the memory is fast. His type does not relate to that used for RAM PC: you can have a PC in DDR2 and DDR3 graphics card.
  • Its frequency:
    • Plus it is high, the card is more powerful.

Finally, to link GPU and memory is the memory bus.
The width of this bus is important: it may be 64, 128, 256, 384 and 512 bits: over the bus is large, most trade between the GPU and memory will be rapid. A map to 256-bit bus is efficient at a map of 128-bit bus for the same GP

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

Cant play any games on pc as 3d grafics are not reconised


Your video card/graphics accelerator is not compatible or setup right. (meaning ,drivers need updating)
We need to open up Direct X diagnostic tool. Use 1 of 2 ways to open it
1 . Go to Start menu. If you have the "RUN" command click on it. type DXDIAG enter
If you dont see the run command then
Without knowing what operating system you have, do this instead. Open up a command prompt.
GO TO: Start, / programs or all programs/ accessories / command prompt , double click.
type in "DXDIAG", enter.
On the System tab it will tell you how much video memory you have as well as the Direct X version.
The system memory and DX version must meet the game requirements.
Click on the Display tab. You will see accelerations in 3 categories. They must all be enabled.
If all or any are disabled the graphics cards driver needs to be updated to the most recent.
Check your games minimum system requirements
without knowing any of your systems specs I cant tell you if it is satisfactory

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

What are the Direct X recommendations for the game? Is your direct X up to date.?

You can check if your graphics card is compatible with 3D graphics by going to Start>run (just on the right below search), and type in dxdiag,

This will bring up your direct X diagnosis program and enable you to run some checks.
Check to see if 3D graphics Accelleration is enabled and then run the video and sound checks to make sure that you are having no problems.
