About geforce 8400gs gen2 tc1g 64bit ddr2, it is okey to run in window7 32bit. i already install and run but only read 512mb.


There should be no reason why this card won't work with Windows 7 32bit, it could be as simple as your Graphics drivers are out of date. I recommend downloading the latest Windows 7 drivers for your card at the Nvidia website.

Just remember graphics RAM and SDRAM are two completely different things so they don't add up.
As far as I know the 8400GS is a 256MB card.

Hi,

You could put either of the graphics you mention in that motherboard providing you get the PCI-Express versions of them.

The motherboard will support a DDR3 structured graphics card in all cases at that is determined by the card not the motherboard as you get specific drivers for them which come included with the card or you can download the latest drivers from ATI or nVidia's support websites.

That motherboard will also support a gigabyte plus graphics card.



Kind regards.

I recommend you to buy ATI 4670 instead since it is much more powerful than you listed above & now the price should be around $64+
It is much better for GTA IV than those you listed.

Windows 7 detects my video card which is xfx geforce 8400 se having a 512mb but only detects as 256mb video card?


When you turn on your pc press F10/F2 (depends upon the motherboard manufacaturer) to go to system setup, function will be according to the motherborad, check for an option named APG/APG Memory/Video Memory. and replace its value using up n down keys or page up/page down or +/- keys. and choose 512 value and maximum value is 256 or less than 256, your motherboard does not support the video memory more than it is selected.

Choosing Graphics card.


NVidia Geforce series, i have found is the most reliable and less likely to screw with your system in a negative way like Radeon.

I have used all forms of video cards in the past. the GeForce series is stable. I have a Dual HDMI output card myself, its only a 512mb DDR2 but it does the work load of MMORPG's with ease and my system very rarely has issues unless i am trying to run more than i rightly should. So my suggestion is the GF9600T. It is powerful beyond beleif and will make resolution and texture ratio through the roof.

Thats my professional opinion on this.

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.
