Are the motherboard and my graphics card I am going to get compatible?

I need to know for my first build if my motherboard and my GPU are compatible. Here they are;

    Yes, this should not be an issue. Almost all graphics cards are compatible with all motherboards. This is because the PCI-E slots are all the same regardless of manufacturers or cpu/gpu type. Bottom line, you will have no problems with these. Hope this helps!!!

    Many thanks I was just confused because the GPU said PCI-E 3.0 but my motherboard just said PCI-E also would a PCI-E 2.0 motherboard work with a PCI-E 3.0 gpu?
  3. Yes, they are backwards compatible. There are really not many advantages of pcie 3 because we don't yet have the demand to use all of the data transfer rate that it provides. It is good if parts have it though because if we get to the point where we can use the full amount that it offers it will be able to fully use its connection.
