Hello Toms Hardware users, I'm planning on upgrading an older rig with a current generation graphics card.

My current specs are:

  • 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
    go for it

    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).
