mobo- Asus P5B-E
ram- 2g Gskill ddr2-800
hdd- 250gb 7200rpm sata 3.0Gb/s
Vid card- 7600gt
psu- Raidmax 500w
Now, I want to get a new video card but my motherboard doesn't support pci-e 2.0. What options would be my best? I have around 250$ to spend on the card, I don't have vista but I was thinking about picking it up to run dx10.
Thanks man, how badly do you think my cpu will bottleneck those cards? I've got around 500 to spend but I didn't want to do too much on the video card considering my cpu is not the strongest of the bunch. It is the conroe though. Should I bump up my cpu as well, or would just splurging on the vid card be best bang for buck?
It will run on your motherboard.
I just bought an 8800 gt and I have it running with my 3 year old P4.
As Wolfshadw said, just replace your PS if needed.
I had to replace mine to be able to run this card. I have an Antec 500w.
