There is no issue with regards if its DDR2 or DD3... or even the memory? 512mb or 1Gb...

0

None, the memory on the graphics card works completely independently from that of the mobo.

Make sure your PSU is up to running the card tho. Most cards have a minimum wattage and / or amperage for the PSU.

The PSU is the most commonly overlooked component in a PC yet one of the most important.

PSU could be the one most overlooked parts but you cannot ignore problems occurring due to graphics cards as well.

I'm sorry sir but I dont fully understand these issues about PSUs' with regards to the other components? Please kindly expand the explanation.

There is a sticker on the side of your PSU. PSU stands for Power Supply Unit. You need to have a look at said sticker and let us know what make and model it is, what wattage it is, and how may amps it can output on the 12 volt rail. There may well be more than one 12 volt rail so we will need to know how many there are.

My PSU

Output 400W Max
+5v +12v -5v -12v +3.3v +5VSB
26A 17A 0.5A 0.8A 15A 2.0A

What about make and model?

17amps on the 12volt rail is a bit on the low side these days.
Most systems need 18amps or more.

Edited by Rik_: n/a

What PSU should I get then? Coz, later I'll be adding-up 1pc-320gbSATA(HDD), 1pc-DVD-RW, FX5500 256mb(VGA). Any suggestions sir?

My advice is to spend as much as you can reasonably afford on your PSU.
A decent quality PSU will last longer, run cooler, and do less or no damage should it fail many years down the line. Decent PSU's also tend to be quieter too.

Well, I have an eye-t PSU that has given me 4 years flawless service so far....

I have the 450watt dual fan which they no longer make but eye-t PSU's seem to be decent quality and relatively cheap (mine was only £24.99 new).
