  1. "I wanna know if my rig will support this GPU"

    The AMD Phenom ll is a CPU, not a GPU, I guess you just pressed the wrong key.

    Yes, it's supported on that ASUS motherboard model, but the board's BIOS version must be 1012 or higher:

    If the BIOS version is lower than 1012, you must install a supported processor temporarily to perform the necessary BIOS update.

    The Asus AMD/ATI RADEON R9 270X DIRECTCU II TOP OC 2 GB DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card should be fully backward compatible with the ASUS M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3 motherboard's PCIe 2.0 x16 Expansion Slot.

    Make sure your power supply unit (i.e. SMPS) has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Seasonic S12II-430 Bronze (SS-430GB)
    • OEM: Seasonic
    • maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps
    one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors
    • Modular Output Cables: No
    • Intel Haswell Compliance: No
    • 80 PLUS BRONZE Efficiency Certification (Ecos ID #: 1240, Test Date: 1/9/2009)
    • 3 Year Limited Warranty

    Seasonic ECO 500 (SS-500BT) <=== This one gives you a little more spare capacity.
    • OEM: Seasonic
    • maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 34 Amps
    two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors
    • Modular Output Cables: No
    • Intel Haswell Compliance: No
    • 80 PLUS BRONZE Efficiency Certification (Ecos ID #: 1346.1, Test Date: 3/10/2009)
    • 3 Year Limited Warranty

    The fact that your motherboard has a PCIe 2.0 slot doesn't result in a perceptible performance difference from a motherboard that has a PCIe 3.0 slot since any difference, if there is any based on the game or application, is below 5%.
  6. Okay so are both the PSUs compatible for the asus r9 270x...???

    And oh okay then thanks..i was worried about that 2.0 would reduce the performance of my card...
