Hello,
I just ordered ATI Sapphire 512mb video card for my computer. I have a Dell Optiplex 260 with a 400 watt psu and 2 DDR SDRAM and Pentium 4 2.4ghz processor. I know my computers motherboard might be old, and was just wondering if this video card might not work. Thanks.

Heres the card..Sapphire Radeon VC X1650PRO 512MB AGP DDR2


And 1 more question. If my computer uses DDR SDRAM (not DDR2) and the video card uses DDR2, will it still work?

The memory types do not matter. The mother board does not care what type of memory is on the video card. Your motherboard has AGP 4X support and the video card is an 8X. So it will not run at full speed but will still be better than the onboard video that the Dell came with.

Good Luck
