  • Compatibility of graphics card and motherboard

    Have an ASUS M2N-E SLI motherboard. Looking to buy GTX 260 graphics card. The graphics card has GDDR3 memory but motherboard says DDR2 memory for it. Is the GDDR3 memory ok or will it have an effect on the motherboard?

    Thanks

    I've never heard of that mattering. You're looking for three things for compatibility: physical slot (AGP, PCI x16, etc...), available power (is your PSU strong enough?), and software (is there a driver to make that card work with your OS?). If those three things are good to go, then you're golden.

      The differences are the GDDR3 is the memory of the graphics card, the DDR2 is the RAM for the motherboard.

        Thanks, fellas. Thought so, but wanted to get a consensus opinion to be sure.

          Just be careful some of the newest cards don't like older boards... I just picked up a ATI 5770 that should have worked using the, 'slot-power-OS' equation. But for whatever reason the 5000 series does not like older motherboards like mine :( (Truth be told it doesn't like the North Bridge)
