Specs: Windows XP Home Edition, P4 2.8GHZ w/HT, 1Gb RAM
I bought a Sapphire HD3650 AGP video card,
and the guy at the computer store told me it
would be DDR3, but the next day he said it
was a mistake and it was only DDR2. I just
opened RivaTuner to see "with 512mb DDR
memory" to the left of the Customize button on
the main page. Is the card actually DDR not
DDR2? Or is this just a minor malfunction in
RivaTuner because it is an AGP card?

Manufacturer: Dell computer corporation
Model: Optiplex gx270
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional CPU/Ram: 2.793 GHz / 1022 MB
Video Card: ATI Radeon 9600 Pro (128mb)

I highly doubt it's plain's either DDR2/GDDR2 or DDR3/GDDR3. Another thing you need to look at is the memory it 64-bit or 128-bit? DDR3 is better than DDR2 & 128-bit is better than 64-bit. If decent gaming is what you're after, you should ideally have a card with 128-bit GDDR3 memory. The 2nd choice would be 128-bit GDDR2. 64-bit cards generally aren't good gaming cards & should be avoided.

All you really needed to do is go to the Sapphire site & look it up!
