    Graphics card help please

    Am needing a graphics card for a hackintosh I am building, according to their wiki an Asus 8400GS Silent 512MB DDR2 works perfectly out of the box.

    Not sure if It's compatible with my mobo, a Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H H55

    I know it takes ddr3 RAM but know very little about graphics cards so don't know if the fact it says ddr2 even matters?

    DRR2 and DDR3? What?!? What ram your motherboard takes has nothing to do … DRR2 and DDR3? What?!? What ram your motherboard takes has nothing to do with graphics cards.Motherboard has PCI-E, graphics card is PCI-E, it will work.



    This is what I presumed, but hey, if you don't ask you don't know.
