i know that my psu is weak, i was just asking about the 8x link. I already orderd my pc power and cooling 860w psu. And another question. Isnt the 5850 a top of the line card?
Yes, but not enough to saturate a PCI-e 2 x8 link. I own an old mobo and its PCI-e 1.1 x16 is like a PCI-e 2 x8 link, I was asking about viable upgrades and a veteran told me I shouldn't go above 5850.
alright thanks. @ jamesyboy. I really dont think its time for an upgrade so i have no clue what your talking about.
