    Will a 8600gt 1 GB card fit in my D101GGC Desktop Board ????


    hi.. am planning to buy a new graphics card for my pc, i run the intel Desktop Board D101GGC and i wanted to know if it can support the 'XFX 8600gt 1GB' graphics card.... my board supports only DDR1 ram, but the memory type of the 8600gt is DDR3 so will it pose any problems?? please help...
    also my motherboard has two pci slots (one x1 and another x16) can i use two graphics cards? i have a 6200 256MB card now, can i use it along with the new one??? please help... thanks................

    yes, you motherboard does suppport PCI-E cards, including the XFX 8600gt 1GB.

    the DDR1 is only for the RAM you plug-in directly on the motherboard, not for the graphic card

    how can you use '6200 256MB' now ?

    you can use that card in a PCI-E x1 slot, but can't see any reason why you want to do it.

    also, i don't think you have space enough when you have plugged-in the new card.

    I had a GeForce 8800, and it fit fine (space wise).

    I know when I upgraded to a 9800GTX, it fit, but was close as the thing was massive.

    However, i ultimately got a custom case, so it doesnt even matter anymore.

    my 8800 wasnt very big, single pci-e slot, skinny. fit fine.

    my 9800gtx, was a double slot, with the enclosure for the fan and whatnot.
