my specs:

e8500 core2duo 3.16 Ghz
Dolgix 8GB (2*4GB) DDR3 RAM 1333MHz
Asus NVIDIA GeForce 210 1 GB DDR3 Graphics Card
ZEB-G41-D3, LGA 775 Socket
1 PCI Express x16 slot

I am looking to upgrade to low-end 2 GB graphics card (not a gaming freak) for photoshop and editing purpose.

Please suggest low-end GPU for G41 Motherboard, LGA 775 and core2duo processor.
Does a DDR3 or DDR5 will work?
Thanks in advance.

Oh in that case GDDR5 is much faster than DDR3 and is compatible since you're already running a 710. Vram type doesn't matter concerning compatibility.

710 is a pretty weak card though but if you're sorta fine with it now, the GDDR5 variant should be somewhat better.

GT 1030 is significantly faster though, if you can find it second hand.

GT 1030 or GTX 1050 should work. The latter card would be better if your PCIe slot provides 75w. Have a look for wattage description near the PCIe slot, hopefully it's written there somewhere near it.

Doesn't matter what Vram type the card uses, there's no connection between it and motherboard ram.

What PSU do you have?

Thanks for fast reply; but I'm very short on budget so looking for GT 710 2 GB card range only. I checked on Amazon for these cards; but there are DDR3 and DDR5 variants.

I want to know which is compatible with my zeb-d3 G41 motherboard? Or Both?
My PSu is
  • Zebronics 450 Watt Economy Power Supply
  • AC 230V 50Hz 3.5A input
  • 80mm exhaust fan
  • 3 pin power cable included Connectors
Please, if you have info, suggest on gt 710 only. can you give amazon links for that. Thanks, once again.

I'd be looking at a GT 730 with 2GB or 4GB of (G)DDR5 VRAM.

Thanks, bro; gt 730; I considered; but really tight on budget; hence specifically searching for variants in gt 710 2 gb only(strictly). Please suggest which company brand should I go for( Asus, gigabyte or msi or galax or zotac). can you send amazon links?
