Is my video card and motherboard compatible?

I have the ASUS M5A97 and the Sapphire Radeon 270 2GB card. Will the 270 work with my mobo?

  1. Yup. The mobo has 2x PCI express slots. As long as you have the right drivers, it should work fine!

  2. Of course , the mobo has pci-e 2.0 slot x16.

    Motherboard has almost nothing to do with compatibility. PCi Express is backwards compatible, so a PCi 3 card will go into a PCi 1 or 2 (x16) slot.
    It relies more on PSU and supplied wattage.
