    lol drop the "sir" at the start, just start with a hello ( or thank you everyone that helps )

    it very well could be a woman that answers, or an attack helicopter XD


    motherboard memory type and vram type have NOTHING to do with each other, does not matter


    make sure your power supply is enough, your pc case is big enough to fit the card, and your motherboard bios is up to date

  2. That card requires minimum PCIE 2.0, but the slot on that mobo doesn't look like it is? Will this not matter?

    "it has a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot"

    "Fair enough, i couldnt find the details on the slot when i had a quick look"

    Cheers for making that clear!
