I was wondering if this "MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+ Motherboard" was compatible with "MSI GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card."
should run fine.
The mobo says it has Crossfire Support, but no SLI support and the gpu says the opposite. Will this system work at all?
yes it will. because the motherboard supporting cfx doesn't conflict with sli support. nvidia requires two pcie x16 slot running at x8 speed for sli but amd 970 chipset only allows up to x16+x4 mode. the gfx card support sli i.e. in a motherboard with two pcie x16 slots running at x8 mode.
Also I am looking for general pointers about this setup.
Thank you in advance!
ram sould be ddr3 1600 minimum (fx is specced to run with ddr3 1866).
case and cooler needed. like cm hyper 212 evo cooler and corsair 200r case.
