The video card memory can be anything you like. They have nothing to do with each other.

BTW that GE3-TI200 you have is probably DDR RAM and it's running with RDRAM (aka RAMBUS) on your MB. The full names are:

SDRAM

DDR SDRAM they just drop the sdram as short hand. The DDR just means its set up to pass data twice for every clock cycle.

Help?

Sounds like the agp slot is fried. If you have tried the card in another pc and it worked, and it doesn't in the "fried" one, pretty sure it is fried. Just make sure that the agp speeds match too.

smoke is a bad thing. i'd hesitate putting any card back in that slot that you don't want to lose.

well i actually managed to fry the board. although through no fault of my own i called the company i bought the board and cpu from and they asked what card i used and i told them my GF3 ti 200 and they said ok to send the board back with the cpu and they will test and intel will replace board in a week, they will test new board and ship when done. not bad huh? i knew my card shouldn't have shorted the board.

well after waiting and waiting i finally got the new board in. ****ers didn't even put the processor back in. had to do it all myself. well the computer is now up and running only after it took me almost an hour i had a bad ram chip, lol. but with that fixed she is happy as a clam about it. so now i just have to figure out how to clean up all the cables. i think i'll just buy rounded. other than that the case is next to be modded as with some additional fans. i'll post some pics as i progress along.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
