I am using dual core 3.2ghz in OPTIPLEXGX620 can i use core 2 duo in it and can i use ddr3 video card in it?

Video cards do not use ddr, ddr2, or ddr3, they use gddr2 gddr3, or gddr5.

The g signifies it is graphics ram. It doesnt matter what processor you are using, it matters what slot type your motherboard has. PcieX16 uses everything. So you are good to go because any dual core computer will come with a pciex16 slot.|||You can't use a Core 2 Duo processor in a Dell OptiPlex GX260.

Whether you can use any video card depends on the power output of your power supply and what fits your pc case and the motherboard graphics card slot interface. The type of memory makes absolutely no difference.

DDR3 video card is compatible withpentium 4 processor?

Yes, absolutely. They are not mutually exclusive. One is a processor and another is RAM memory. Even if your motherboard uses DDR or DDR2/PC2 RAM, a video card with any type of RAM will work, if the operating system supports it. I am assuming you know if it's a PCI, PCI Express, or an AGP type card, and which slot(s) you have available on the board.

Good luck!

DDR2 vs DDR3 video card?

im looking at two graphics cards. One of them has 1 GB of DDR2 and the other has 1 GB of DDR3. I need to know which will be compatible with my system. Also which performs better and which is more energy efficient?|||GDDR3 video cards are much better performers than GDDR2 models- usually twice as fast. Higher speed memory like GDDR3 does use more energy. However, newer card designs with more advanced GPUs are often more energy-efficient overall than older models.

As long as your computer has the correct slot type (PCI-Express, AGP) and a strong enough power supply, the type of memory on the card doesn't matter. Your motherboard's memory type (DDR2, DDR3) has no bearing on graphics card compatibility- you can use GDDR2, GDDR3, or GDDR5 cards just fine.…|||I don't think there are any graphics cards with DDR3 memory. I think you are confusing GDDR3 and DDR3 memory. These are *completely* different memory types. (In fact, GDDR3 memory is more like DDR2 memory than DDR3 memory.)|||Both will work with your system. The memory on video cards doesn't have to match what's on your motherboard.

DDR3 is faster/more efficient than DDR2, but it won't make a huge different in your overall video experience.|||that's only the memory tyoe. you need to know what type of slot it goes into (like pcie, agp, etc). ddr3 consumes less electricity than ddr2.|||DDR3 has more speed (mhz) you have to make sure your computers compatible w/ it first.|||DDR3 is better in performance but may take up much energy.

Can I use ddr3 video card even if my motherboard uses DDR2 for RAM?

I have P5QPL-AM motherboard, and I know that I cant use a RAM DDR3, how about a Video Card DDR3, can I use it for my motherboard? (I'm using NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT right now)

for example, this video card|||The GDDR 3 memory on the VGA card is a video buffer for the GPU, has little to do with the system RAM, you can use a VGA card with GDDR 3 - 4 - 5 if you feel the need W/O a problem, good luck..|||Yes - The video card has its own GPU and system. Think of it as a separate computer by itself, specialized to run video.

Will a DDR3 Video Card work in this PC?

I have a HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7470n Desktop PC, the specifications are as follows:

Base processor

Athlon 64 X2 (T) 4200+ 2.2 GHz

2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second)

ATI Radeon Xpress 200

Memory Installed 2 GB (2 x 1 GB)

Maximum allowed 4 GB* (4 x 1 GB)

*Actual available memory may be less

Speed supported PC-3200 MB/sec

Type 184 pin, DDR SDRAM

DIMM slots Four

Open DIMM slots Two


I ask this because I recently had a 512mb DDR2 video card installed in my PC that worked fine for a while. It only recently broke and I'm trying to replace it, but the card I really want is DDR3.

Thanks for any tips.|||no it will not work because this thing says so|||The type of RAM on the card has absolutely nothing to do with compatibility. Does the card have the same slot as your motherboard, whether that be AGP or PCIe? Yes? Then it'll work provided your power supply has enough juice.|||Well the DDR2 or DDR3 in a card doesnt matters only if your motherboard supports PCIE x16 or something like that

so it should support it

Is the Visiontek Radeon HD 4670 1GB DDR3 Video Card a decent graphics card for gaming?

It doesn't have to be great, just good enough for 30fps on most standerd settings of games|||Should be able to run 30 fps on crysis 1 on max without shading. That is if you have a good processor and ram. Go to YouTube and type that up and it will show you bunch of videos of games running with the card.|||yeah 30FPS at a 1366x768... people on youtube show you how low you can go with a particular card on a particular resolution.

If you play Crysis 1 at 1920x1080 then look for 12FPS with a 4670

Is it a good card... NO! If you're looking for a cheap, low powered card then look for a 6670. That card will get you about 22FPS.

If my video card is ddr then i have i ddr3 video card would it be fit to my motherboard?

i have ATI Radeon HIS HD3850 IceQ3 Turbo AGP will it fit to my pc my current video card is geforce mx440 theyr' both AGP... im afraid to put it on my mother board|||If they are AGP they should fit. Check the power requirement on it and if it meets the requirement, use the video card. But check the specs, maybe one of them is better than the other one.|||what is there to fear? if they are both AGP and you have AGP slot on your (old) PC, then go for it.

If it is dusty inside, then hoover it out and brush the AGP slot to get it scrupulously clean.|||both are AGP so you can use it.|||AGP to AGP upgrading,,,, not a problem, check for SMPS to meet power requirements.|||Are they both 8x or 4x or what?

Make sure that your motherboard supports the "x" number. AGP comes in 1x,2x,4x,8x, and, I think, 12x. I forget. Most motherboards support two of those numbers.

I don't know what will happen if your motherboard does not support the "x" number of the card. Will it short out and go up in smoke?? Well, I doubt it. Probably just won't work. Maybe the higher one will revert to the lower one. I don't know - I never mixed the two...

PS: Do NOT "hoover it out!" Vacuum cleaners generate a fair amount of static electricity, which is the enemy of all mosfets (integrated circuits). Good advice to clean it out, but use a can of compressed air. NOT a vacuum cleaner!
