Video Card Interface Speed Question For SY-K7V Dragon+ Tags: Graphics Cards Bug Motherboards Last response: June 25, 2006 9:29 PM in Motherboards Share Gregory_Earl June 11, 2006 7:46:32 PM My first post here. Good looking forum with lots of info. I've got the upgrade bug and am having a problem figuring out what video cards will work on this board. Can you use an 8x card on a board that only supports 1x/2x/4x modes? If so, are there advantages or is it just a waste of money? Recommendations welcome.

There are 8x/4x cards, and there are 8x/4x/2x cards. Anything up to the 9800 Pro will work fine at 4x, anything faster than the 9800 Pro will start to loose a portion of its performance due to the slower slot. They all work. | Report abuse Gregory_Earl June 25, 2006 8:57:19 PM Thanks man. | Report abuse Crashman Graphics card Expert Motherboard Expert June 25, 2006 9:29:58 PM No problem.
