HD 4850 on Intel DG 965RY (PCIe x16) Tags: Graphics Cards Intel HD Graphics Product Last response: October 11, 2008 5:12 AM in Graphics & Displays Share amit3945 August 17, 2008 3:31:57 PM Have been a Nvidia regular in the past but ,the HD 4850's look really inviting (for the price). I am currently using 7900 GS on a Intel DG 965RY Mobo. The Mobo box indicates PCI Express* x16. I am confused as to weather 4850 will work on my mobo. I read something about PCIe 2.0 , 1.0,1.0a and now am confused about the whole thing. Will I see a "significant" improvement in IQ and Performance with a 4850 as compared to my 7900GS in games like Crysis/BioShock and CoD4? I usually game at 1024*768.At these resolution's will it actually make sense to upgrade to a 4850? More about : 4850 intel 965ry pcie x16 Infikiran October 11, 2008 5:12:33 AM The 7900 gs does not hold a candle to a 4850. I play Crysis on very high settings with 1440X900 resolution. The 4850 will work with any PCI express slot. My PCI Express slot is an x16 and it works great. I say go for it. You won't regret it. P.S. The 4850 uses about 275 watts at full load, so make sure your power supply can handle it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
