I have an HP Pavilion p6-2330 Desktop PC. Windows 8 Home Edition. Processor AMD A6-5400K PPU. Graphics is AMD Radeon HD 7540D. DirectX Version 11.My problem is, if I only have 8GB memory in my computer, I don't have any problems playing my game, Tiger Woods 2008. When I put 10GB or more in the computer, I get these two messages. "Game does not officially support this video card." and "DirectX is reporting that there is not enough video memory to run the game."I don't understand what happens. Is it possible that with 10GB memory or more it is using up video memory? So I am asking, what would be the best Graphics Card to get so I can have 16GB memory in my computer and be able to play the game? The graphics slot is PCI Expressx16.

Literally any that is as fast as the IGP or faster. So *600, *800 or *900 series, where * can be 5, 6 or 7.

If you can set how much RAM the IGP can use in the BIOS, try it, it may help instantly.

Another good solution would be selling the extra 8GB of RAM as you will never use it anyway, unless you tend to do unusual things (like running 3 or more virtual machines at the same time, compressing more thatn 4 files using LZMA/Ultra (with 4 or more threads) simultaneously etc.).

Thank you Eydee. I had posted this at HP forums and they couldn't come up with anything that I hadn't already tried. More importantly, they couldn't come up with a logical solution. I am not going to be doing any of those things that you mentioned. The game plays with 8GB and so therefore, I am happy.I appreciate the concern you have given me and for solving a problem I didn't have at all. I will sell the other 8GB memory I have as you suggested.
