i was just wondering if i could change out my xfx hd radeon 6870 with 7870. the description for the 7870 said i need PCI Express 3.0 . i looked at the board and it said 2.0 . i looked it up online and it said it has both. here is the link

i do not have any knowledge on what is what. figured it might be more easy to ask people who would know. please help:??:

Hi mate , the 7870 is reverse compatibility so don't worry about the express 2.0 & express 3.0...It'll just reduce the performance of the card by a bit not anything you will notice :)

that is good to hear thank you. with battlefield 4 looking shiny, i figured it was time to upgrade a little.
