    like i said, having a good video card with slow system memory is not going to run well, the video card wont run to its full potential.

    if you have DDR memory, with a DDR video card it will run ok. if its SD and DDR its not.

    i cant find the thread about my dilemma but ask wiggo he was the one who told me about it.

    I understand what you;re saying, BUT
    DDR card will still work better than SDR card in a SDR system.
    So buy the best card ya can afford.
    It will help out your vid card performance as well as the overall system.

    What he's refferin' to is the bottleneck that's basically cripplin' ya system caused by the SDRAM as basically the CPU's FSB alone is twice as fast as it (not to mention other DMA requirements) which is why DDR SDRAM has been the standard for sometime now.
