HI,

i kind of confused of what video card to buy . .

i've got a PCI-Ex16 slot

i've seen the cards. but i get confused of which type of RAM memory.

my questions are

will any of the following video cards that have DDR2, DDR3 or GDDR3 work for my computer's PCI-E slot?

or does every PCIE slot have a limit to what type of Memory the video card has?

and lastly what video card can be suggested to my PC?


here is a link to my PC's specs

No any kind of card that is PCI-E x16 will work with you. The type of RAM used on the card only helps people to comapre how fast it is. Like GDDR3 is the best perfoming kind of graphic RAM.

and lastly what video card can be suggested to my PC?

Well what are you doing with your rig? Are you playing DirectX 10 games? And what is your budget?

I mostly play games so I do not know that much about the requirements of CAD programs but I think it is not as demanding as games. You would probably be OK with a Radeon X1650 GT or GeForce 7600 GT.
