  1. A graphics card does not have to be UEFI-compliant in order to work in a motherboard that supports UEFI. In fact, UEFI is designed to be device-independent, not relying on certain support in hardware.

    The 7790 is a decent midrange card.

    This is from the website.: No UEFI support.
    * No native UEFI BIOS support, for UEFI BIOS, please download from ASUS technique support site. (The update tool only for ASUS MB.)

    That just means that the card would not work if you have your UEFI BIOS set to UEFI only. But there is also legacy and UEFI first options that can be set. As said above UEFI is backwards compatible and the card will work just fine.

    I run two GTX 670's that do not have a UEFI BIOS either on my Asus Z77 Sabertooth and have never had a problem with them.
  4. I have to ask, I'm getting the 2gb version of this card. how do I change the bios option. Is it simple or complex?
