Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

What specs should I buy for my cpu that can play latest games like L4d 2, Cod MW2, prototype, etc etc.. and whats the difference between ddr2, ddr3, or gddr 2, gddr3?

Answers :

If you want to play the latest games, then I would suggest a computer with a DVD-ROM drive (most games come on dvd now), 4 gigs of ram, one of the faster versions of the Core2Duo or Core2Quad, and a 512 mb graphics card. I don't know what kind of graphics cards companies put in when you build your own computer and select a higher option for the video card, so you might be better off not upgrading the video right off the bat and going to some place like http://www.newegg.com/ and getting a good one. If you think I'm overdoing it on the specs, you have to realize that when you use your computer for gaming, you can't skimp on the hardware.

As for your second question, *ddr* is just a speed rating for memory. ddr2 or 3 refers to the speed of ram. gddr2 or 3 generally refers to the speed of memory in a graphics card, hence the "g". The higher the number, the faster the memory.
A setup to play these kind of games
u need

cpu : [email protected] any model
graphic card : ati hd 3850 or higher /// nvidia 9600gt or higher
ram : 2gb or high with 800mhz fsb or more

ddr2 and ddr3 are types of ram
ddr2 is the most widely used one
dd3 is the latest model in rams and is the fastest, but is very expensive
price/performance is better or ddr2

gddr2, gddr3, gddr5 are different models of ram that is used on graphics card

gddr5 is the best that is in the market for mainstream users

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to sockets 3&4 and put the two 2gb dimms in sockets 1&2. BIOS settings are on ''Auto'' for all memory (5-5-5-15). When I boot the system, BIOS only detects 4GB of total memory (as does Windows 7 64bit). The two 2gb dimms aren't even recognized (yes, they are seated properly). Can I not mix 1 and 2
