My Computer:
1x ATX Corsair 850W Real
1x cabinet ATX Casemall KM-9188- Blue
1x HD Seagate 500.00 GB SATA 7200 RPM
1x ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 (pci 2.0)
1x AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 3.00 GHz
1x gtx 560 ti
1x 4 GB DDR3 1333 Kingston (RAM)

I will buy more 4gb to ram
and change the vga
I'm thinking to buy a r9280x 3gb or r9290x 4gb, I don't know which one I'll buy
Can my pc support a r9280x or r9290x? There is compatibility with the entire system? Can My Power supply supports? Everything will work perfectly? Can my processor and motherboard handle the r9280x 3gb or r9290x 4gb?

Thanks

Hi,

I am going to assume you are talking about the r280x & 290x (as i dont know of a 9280x or 9290x)

Yes the card will work in your system, no it will not be at full speed.

couple of limitations.

First your motherboard only has PCI-Express 2.0 Ports (1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (blue)) and these new cards are PCI-Express 3.0 so that gives some bandwidth limitations.(I estimate upto 10% reduction in speed)

your CPU may give further limitations but not so much.

8gb RAM will be fine.
