I'm swapping my 8800GT for an 8600GTS... now, the 8800GT didn't work on my computer and from what I've found it's because the Gigabyte GA-M68SM-S2 motherboard has some issues with pci-e 2.0 cards. My brother has an 8600GT on the same motherboard (And almost identical system otherwise too) which works fine - it isn't Pci-e 2.0 but I'm also pretty sure it has DDR2 VRAM... well, the 8600GTS I'm getting is DDR3 VRAM, and I don't want to go buying it only to find it also doesn't work... SO, my question is..
Could the DDR version of a video cards VRAM make a difference in it's compatibility with a motherboard?
Rooster, do you think that firmware from Gigabyte would fix those issues? I just thought, if they were to release some firmware that fixed it sometime soon it may not be worth selling my 8800GT but to wait?
