  1. Uh...one of the two parts is wrong here. You either don't have an i7 4770k or you don't have a 1155 motherboard.

    With an LGA 1155 motherboard, the best you can get is a 3770k, but if you're absolutely sure you have a 4770k, then you own an LGA 1150 motherboard.
    That said, GPUs aren't much about memory compatibility, but rather about bottlenecking issues and PCIe revision. It's mostly a matter of how fast data gets processed by the system for the card.

    Get yourself an analysis software such as Speccy (very basic, but will do the trick I think) and post your full specifications, please, as well as the GPU you're thinking to buy.

  2. Not sure what GPU you want to buy, or your exact mobo, but every LGA 1155 or 1150 is compatible with GDDR5 GPU VRAM, so if this is what`s holding you back, don`t worry about it.

    Now, if you want more help or advice regarding your choice, tell us more about your build and the GPU you want to get.

    Graphics card RAM or VRAM isn't dictated by the cpu or motherboard. The kind of RAM or System Memory is dictated by motherboard/cpu. And you can't get a 4770k on a 1155. Try a 3770k. that Motherboard and CPU support dd3 for the Main RAM (System RAM/Memory whatever you want to call it) You can get a Graphics card with GDDR5 VRAM or GDDR3 or whatever. The Graphics card runs on its own memory that doesn't conflict with what the Motherboard or CPU do. Normal Ram for the computer and Vram for the graphics card.

  4. Yeah.....i have a lga155 and i7 3770k processor so im planning a gt730/gt740 2gb ddr5
    im planning a
    i7 3770k
    4gb ram
    1tb hardisk
    2gb nvidia geforce gt730/740 2gb

  5. Ehhh...a 730/740 isn't going to run many games at decent settings besides very old or very light ones, but if you're on a tight budget, go for it, and possibly for a 740.

    If I were you, I'd pick something along the lines of a 760 tho, while waiting to have enough money for it if I hadn't already.

  6. Then what about a r7 240 2GB or a r7 25 2GB

    Anything under the 270x (or the equivalent from the 7000 series) isn't worth it IMO. They're trading blows with their Nvidia counterparts, yes, but Nvidia has the extra of CUDA cores, should you ever want to do something in your free time that uses them. They can provide a nice boost, albeit with an i7 you might actually not need them....

    It's more a matter of preference tho; usually if the OP states he's looking for an Nvidia, it's unlikely he'll accept other models as an advice.

    And hey, it'll likely dish out 3x the performance of an AMD on any Ubisoft game :D

  8. So I have a budget o f rs10000($165) which graphics card should I go for?

  9. Pretty much tight...
    A 740 should be under rs 10000, or you could find a discounted 750ti under or slightly above that too (about rs 1000~1500 above), with some luck.

    I still heavily think it's not going to be worth it anyway...
    If I were you, I'd wait for a higher budget and go for something beefier; something along the lines of rs 20000

  10. If you can find something like an EVGA GTX 750ti, that would be better. The question is, why so processor heavy and graphics weak?
