    Hi
    I find that the memory type is wrong with my NVIDIA graphic card.
    It should be 9500GT DDR3. (not GDDR3)
    It will show DDR2 instead of DDR3. I have checked with NVIDIA's engineer.
    They told that developer need to update the header files from NVIDIA.
    Anyone can help on this?
    Thanks!

    It is new. The memory clock is 800Mhz and the memory part no. is Hynix H5TQ1G63BFR-12C.
    According to NVIDIA engineer, this DDR3 memory is used on system memory modules.
    But now, it change to use on graphic cards.
    Moreover, they told that the old header files only contain SDR, DDR, DDR2 and GDDR3 but no DDR3. So, it will display DDR2 accordingly.
    Therefore, update to new header files are needed to solve this issue.
    Please help!

    Moreover, I heard from the engineer that it will have more and more graphic board will change to use DDR3 design. It is because of the cost to performance.
