I want to buy the gtx 460 gpu. It says that it needs one pci express connection. I am sure that my motherboard has a pci express. But I can see that there are 2 connections for gpu on the MB. Are both pci express?
Reason why I am asking, is that one of the slots is too close to the psu that I can install a GPU there, so I must use the slot that is higher on the MB
Any of the pci-e slots will work with your 460. Your power supply must have the right lead and have enough amps on the 12v rail to support it. Look for a minimum of 22 on the ps label.
I have a corsair 550w. I guess thats enough. but I will check the 22 think. but 22 what?
