Video Card Question...need help!

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi, I am new to this forum and have a question.

I recently wanted to buy a new videocard as my old one is spoilt. I wanted to buy Geforce of any of series 8 (8500, 8600 etc.). However, there was someone who told me that you need at least a ddr2 ram type to be able to use these videocards. Is this true? And is there any things to consider when buying a videocard? Like the processor speed all these...

I am currently using:

K8 Neo 4 Motherboard MSI

AMD Athlon 64 3200+

DDR 1gb ram

Geforce 7300GS 512mb

Thanks for any help in advance!:)

that is NOT true

BUT if you have a DDR2 system you are more likely to have an PCIe system since good AGP cards are pretty rare these days

as I just saw your motherboard is PCIe already ... if that is correct go ahead and buy any GPU you want :D
