Is there "Certain" video cards that are compatible like memory or can just about any Video card be used?

The board has a PCI-e x16 slot...the HD4650 is a PCI-e x16 card, so what's the problem? The video memory & the system memory are two completely different things & are not connected...the video card can use any type of memory.

That being said, the HD4650 w/1GB GDDR2 isn't a great card & it certainly doesn't need 1GB. What is the intended purpose? If it's for gaming, I suggest you choose a different card. If you want a cheap but decent gaming card, the Radeon HD4670 w/512MB GDDR3 is approx the same price & is much better.

You might wanna consider a different motherboard too. Stick with the Intel P45 chipset, but avoid boards made by Intel.
