Anyone have a recommendation for an ABIT AB9 PRO P965 775 with an E6300? It has PCIe 16x but its only PCIe v1. Will I get much benefit from a Radeon HD5850 or will the PCIe bandwidth or another component limit the performance? What is the best card I can put in this older system with 8GB memory running Vista x64?
Thanks! I know it will work but I'm wondering if this older system will actually be able to utilize the performance of the 5850 or if I should go with a lower end card. Anyone have suggestions on where the sweet spot is for my config? I don't want to overbuy.
