Hi guys .

I have a very low-end PC -
Intel Pentium 4 3.00ghz
1 GB Ram
330 GB HDD
Intel Integrated 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family
Win Vista Home Premium

I'm planning to buy a new PC with
Intel Core i7 920/940
3-4 GB Ram
250 + 250 GB HDD
Middle end sound card from creative.

the problem is Dx11 graphic cards going to be released.

If I buy a second -hand Radeon hd 4830 and put it to my motherboard
then when Ati's Dx11 cards get released . Can I just buy the graphic card and put it into my motherboard.

Can you also suggest the motherboard i have to buy for the Q3- Q4 releasing Dx11 graphic cards ?

First, your motherboard needs to be a Socket 1366 motherboard, then you can run any X16 slot video card..untill Dx11 cards for ati are out.

X58 Gigabyte extreme is a good board but, high priced.

the ASUS P6T Deluxe x58 board you probably be my recommendation.

still, your wanting to get all these new things, and then run some hd4830.. which i dont see any reviews on from anyone..

thats a good review for the sapphire 4830 no crossfire results but they tested some good games. the 4830 can be oc'ed to match a stock clocked 4850 so if you get 2 and oc to 4850 preformance youll be set. just like having 2 4850 for less!

i'm taking about Dx11 motherboards & graphic cards and their compatibility .

The x58 motherboard will run the cards yes, as long as there x16 slot cards nothing should go wrong. it will run as if it would on a regular Gigabyte UD3P or PsQ Pro ASUS.

When the Dx11 cards come out and you want it, then get it and download the latest drivers for dx and you'll be set on dx11.
