  1. i wouldnt recommend getting more than a 750 TI on that system, as i believe it only has pci-e 2.0? and the cpu would bottleneck also
  2. Actually that's why i asked..i don't know what graphic card is compatible with my computer
    this is my motheboard: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5ND/ so yes pci-e 2.0
  3. i believe modern graphics cards will work fine however they will only be able to utilise pci-e 2.0 speeds, so it will essentially run as fast as the system can handle, thats why i said a cheap gpu is more suited.

    the only other option would be to get a new pci 3.0 motherboard but that would require a new cpu etc aswell
  4. thanks fields..i suppose a card like GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX550 TI should work right?

    well yea thats quite an old pci-e 2.0 card anyway, im not sure where you will find one these days besides second hand, perhaps a 650 TI would also be a similar price but more available
