    is dp45sg compatible with ddr2 graphics card LIKE HD 4650 OR 9500GT

      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

       

      processor

      motherboard

      ram

      ups

      graphics card

      cabinet

      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

       

      or

       

      ZoTac
      ZT-94TEH2P-FSL
      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

          Any of those boards should work with that video card.The kind of memory your motherboard has and the kind of memory your graphics card has do not have to be the same. You can use a DDR2 motherboard with a DDR3 video card and vice/versa.

           

          If you are going to be gaming and you must choose between DDR3 system RAM or a higher-end video card, I would go with the better video card.
