question about video card

By apower
Sep 3, 2004
  1. I HAVE A COMPUTER WITH 1.6GHZ, 32MB BUILT IN VIDEO CARD, AND 256MB SDRAM.

    I WANT TO UPGRADE MY COMPUTER WITH A NEW AGP VIDEO CARD. I WANT TO KNOW IF I COULD PUT A VIDEO CARD THAT CONTAINS DDR MEMORY EVEN THOUGH MY MOTHERBOARD USES SDRAM?

    PLEASE HELP, I AM GOING TO BUY A VIDEO CARD VERY SOON

    QUESTION #2
    IS THE RESOLUTION AND QUALITY PRETTY GOOD WHEN VIDEO CARDS ARE CONNECTED TO A TELEVISION?

    THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN OFFER.

    First of all, welcome to Techspot!
    Please refrain from typing in full capital letters, most of the members here find it very annoying.

    I cant see a reason why you cant use an AGP video card with DDR Ram in a PC running with SDRAM. It will work offcourse. So its a thums up for me.

    I cant believe you typed in all caps, never ever do that, anywhere!


    a Videocard with DDR ram will work in your SDRAM computer.

    Resolution is very low on TVs, and QUALTY is EXTREAMLY HORRIBLE, you have no comprehension how bad it looks. Text is very very hard to read at the size of the text in this post

    But conversly, movies, and games don't look all that bad, but you can definately tell the difference between it and a monitor.

    BTW,

    TV-out quality varies a lot between graphics cards, some can output 1280x1024 clearly, some are limited to 800x600. However, the image quality depends on the cable and your television too, of course. New HDTVs (or equivalent displays) have very good image.
