Computer Specs:

  • Motherboard: Intel DH61HO
  • Processor: Intel i3-2120 CPU 3.30Ghz
  • Power supply: 450W power supply
  • RAM: Hynix 6GB DDR3 (4+2) 1333Mhz
  • SSD: Kingston SATA 240GB
  • HDD: Seagate SATA 1TB

I can only afford to buy a GT 710 or similar AMD graphics card.

I have found ASUS graphics card providing 4 years warranty but they have DDR3 and GDDR5. The GDDR5 has a fan and is cheaper also.

So my question is which is more compatible with the system configuration. DDR3 or GDDR5?

Also, is GT 710 2GB worth it when I already have an Intel HD Graphics 2000.

The problem I am facing now is that my screen flickers and freezes and I have to reset pc, losing the work I am doing. That is the reason I am thinking of buying a Graphics card.

Please help me. Thank you in advance.

  • Graphic cards don’t use DDR3

  • Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 2GB DDR3 Memory Graphics Card (GV-N710D3-2GL). I know graphics card has a separate processor and memory. I don't know is I see a lot of Graphics like this and also GDR5. That's why I'm confused.

Question is answers by Ramhound as “These cards are identical”.

The sellers in Amazon are posting the ads wrong. Ramhound said “Graphics cards don’t use DDR3”.

I finally purchased the newer card from Asus.
