My planned upgrade card is the R9 290 Vapor-X. Will there be any compatibility issues?

Thanks.

    Hi Cybernetic,
    you will be fine with that setup ,
    no compatabillity issues whatsoever , your psu has enough grunt for the card you have a good board and cpu and ram

    Thank you.

    So the PCI-E 2 vs PCI-E 3 will not be an issue? (I just want to make sure. It's a big purchase when it comes back in stock).
  3. No the difference will hardly be noticable , you will be good to go :)
    and you are most welcome , i hope it all goes well for you , all the best
