Hi,
How I want to change my graphic card from Radeon HD 4850 512Mb to AMD R9 270, and currently I use gigabyte g41m combo motherboard. How do I know if it will fit?

PCI-E slots, regardless of what version, all conform to industry standards. A PCI-Ex16 graphics card will physically fit into any PCI-Ex16 graphics card slot.

A PCI-E version 3.0 graphics card is (supposed to be) fully backwards compatible with all previous PCI-E version graphic card expansion slots. No firmware updates are necessary.

AMD R9 270 is pci-e x16 3.0. how is that any different? do I need firmware?


Unlikely, pci-e is backward compatible i.e. pci-e card 3.0 will work in pci-e 2.0/1.0 slots , of the same length
