    The main slot for the graphics card is a PCI Express x 16 slot. But if you have two graphics cards installed the second PCI Express x 16 slot will fall to 4X instead. This is because there is a limited number of PCI lanes in this motherboard. And it isn't really configured to run two graphics cards at 16x or both at 8x.
  7. So even though you can run two graphics card , I would suggest just one.
  8. I believe the question is: what is the best graphics card he can use in his system. Not how many.
  9. The 1050ti is too small of an upgrade. You are about maxed already. You may be able to get a 1060 but many games will bottleneck from a stock sb/ib. My 2500k has to be oced to run a 1060. 8gb ram is still fine.
  10. RX570 4GB + 2 Free Games = $130 w/ promo code EMCTUUU29 is ~60% faster than a GTX760
  11. You may have confused userbenchmark. The top score includes useless synthetics. It's closer to 30% if you average more games than what they have.

    Then you are only limited by the 500 watt power supply. A GTX 1060 OR GTX 1070 would work. On the AMD SIDE A RX580 OR RX590 would work. But note all of these are recommended at 500 watts, there is no headroom at all.
