  1. Hi, I just bought this desktop and I am wondering whether ATI 5770 fits my system or not? ATI 5770 uses GDRR5 but it seems my motherboard doesn't support that. So I am really confused here. Wish someone can help....
    My computer info is as follows:
    Motherboard: Foxconn H-RS780-uATX HP: Aloe-GL8E
    PCI Express x16: 1PCI Express x1: 3PCI Express x1 minicard socket: 1
    Processor: AMD Athlon(TM) X4 635 quad-core processor [2.9GHz, 6GB]
    Memory: 6 GB (3 x 2 GB) DDR3 PC3-10600 (message as PC3-8500)

    I am happy to provide more info if needed.
    Thanks in advance.

    Short answer is yes.
    The video RAM (vRAM) that the card uses has no direct bearing on the motherboard.

    The card uses GDDR5 -The G stands for graphics. Motherboards utilise DDR RAM (either DDR, DDR2 or DDR3), both for the system and integrated graphics (SidePort cache).

    I think this question was already answered in your previous thread chz435646746.

    But again, like DBZ said, yes.
