    I need help making sure this video card is the right one for me. Attached is my dxdiag.txt file. I also want to install a 512 stick of ram. Heres the link:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145538
    I don't want to pay too much but I want the best ram for my system, if there's a better one please post a link. Also directions to install would be amazing.

    We need to know if your memory is DDR or DDR2 and the video is AGP or PCI-E.

    The memory you linked to will not work, it's DDR2 240 pin.
    You need DDR 184 pin found here.

    For the 7900GS found here I would recommend the one from BFG Tech.
    It has an overclocked core and BFG has an original purchaser lifetime warranty, it has also received very good reviews.
