    do dp45sg supports any ddr2 graphics card

      i am planning to buy a new pc

      which should provide future

      support for atlest 4 years

      while being able to play latest current games like gta4


      i want to keep the cost of machine with ups around

      25000 rs or 500 $ provided i already have speaker,

      monitor, mouse, keyboard, headphones router


      it leaves me with






      graphics card


      dvd writer




      thus i thought dp45sg motherboard would be a good option

      i want to install 2 gb ddr3 ram and would

      eventually raise it to 4gb,

      and 512mg/1 gb graphics card

      with intel core 2 duo 2.8 processor

      and 500gb hdd

      now i am pretty confused regarding motherboard
      between dp35dp , dp45sg, dg45id
      please tell me will it be good to go for dp45sg
      because i think ddr3 is the future,
      but it increases my cost and i can afford only low- mid range cards
      tell me if it is compatible with ddr2 graphics card like
      Palit9400GT Super1GB DDR2 - Super W/HDMI




      9400GT1 GB DDR2




      if not tell me about other 2 motherboards and will it be ok to

      go with ddr2 ram now,

      similarly please tell me about their graphics card support???????????????????


      sorry for the long question


      waiting for a reply

      thanks in advance

            Hi Gaurav,

            I would second Michele here but before concluding this discussion, I would quickly give you a response to your question.

            DP45SG has been tested with a few third-party parts, of which here are the following GPUs:

            GALAXY* GF 9600GT PCI-e 512MB DDR3 256Bit w/HDTV/Dual DVI
            NVIDIA* EN9800GTX
            EVGA* GeForce 8800 GTS
            Nvidia 7900
            Asus* Nvidia EN9800 GTX
            Gigabyte* 8800GTS 512MB. D3306
            Nvidia 7600GT
            ASUS NVIDIA EN8500GT Silent Magic
            Geforce NVIDIA 8600 GT
            Nvdia Quadro FX 1700
            NVIDIA EN8400GS
            ATI* HD3870
            PNY* NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290


            Moreover, this m/board has PCI-X slots on it and that would support any modern GPU with PCI-X interface so yours should fit. As for your budget, Rs. 25, 000/- for the desired hardware would not be sufficient, I don't have any pricing for India but this I know for sure that your current budget might not be enough especially with UPS to be purchased.

            For more information and other system related queries, kindly post in the community as pointed by Michele.

            Thank you, have a nice day!


            Warm Regards,
