  1. On desktop, the drivers already do that for you. For games, you can change the settings in game depending on how well it runs on your GPU.
  2. Using a ka780g motherboard what would be the best gpu that I can use? The 4670 isn't cutting it lol. Unless it's just vista acting up to where my games freeze and are jittery???
  3. Upgrading to windows 7 will probably improve your performance, vista takes resources and throws them away(personal experience)
    The 4670 though, does need an upgrade.
    Consider a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127741
  4. The problem that I have is that I am not sure what will work with my motherboard and what won't.

    That GPU will not work with his motherboard. His motherboard has a PCI-E x16 1.0 lane which supports PCI-E x16 2.0, but not 3.0 So a good HD 6xxx series or 5xx series would suffice.
  6. Now how do you know that? What tell you that it will work?

    Somehow i had it in my mind that pcie 3.0 was backward compatible with 1.0, you're right.

    Wait, nevermind. A lot of other sources say it will work. However, proceed with caution because it may cause stability issues. If you feel this thread has reached its end choose a best answer and we'll be done!
  9. What should I take into consideration when choosing a gpu?
  10. So then any of those cards should work because I have a PCI-e slot?
  11. Best answer

    They should work. All PCI-E versions are backwards compatible with each other, but I have seen results vary. However there will most likely be no difference for you. Just make sure you have enough room in your case!
  12. So my motherboard has nothing to do with my choice as long as it is PCI-e? Just wanna make sure I'm clear on this.

    Yes. Nothing. However a bottleneck might happen if you put a really expensive GPU in there. Just make sure your power supply can supply enough power to the GPU.
  14. Sorry I am a noob lol. What is bottlenecking?

    It's okay man! We were all noobs at one point.
    Here is a video to explain bottlenecking.

    in your example bottlenecking is a card's capabilities being hampered by the speed of say the processor.
    -the processor is too slow to instruct the fast graphics card at full capability for example.
  17. What do you suggest would be the best gpu with an AMD Phenom II X4 920 CPU?

    Instead of that CPU, I would recommend a Phenom II x4 965 (model number HDZ965FBK4DGM) and a 7790 or 7850 depending on how much you want to spend.
  19. I don't plan on buying another one. What makes you say that?

    Oh, I thought you were going to buy it. If you already have that graphics card, I would recommend the same thing; 7790 or 7850.
  21. No. Haha. I said best GPU for the CPU. it's all good
