Default Video Card with Motherboard

Hi, I just bought a XFX GeForce 8800 Ultra 8800 768MB, but I'm not sure if this card will be compatible with my motherboard ABIT Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI, the card says it uses a DDR3 memory type and my motherboard uses a DDR2, please I need help, thank you.

abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI Mainboard Review (page 4) - X-bit labs

Your board has two pci-e 2.0 x16 slots meaning it could have two of those video cards.

The memory type on the video card doesn't matter. Your mobo just needs DDR2 for its normal RAM.

CPU: Intel Core i7 920
Ram: 12GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
Mobo: ASUS P6T
PSU: 750W PC Power & Cooling

yea, like was said, the memory on the video card and mobo don't have to be the same.

but you also have to make sure that you have a powerful enough power supply to power that card.
