I have an XFX nforce 630i motherboard (PCI-E 1.0 slot) and I would like to run a Geforce 260 Core 216 graphics card (2.0) on it.

Can I run it on my motherboard?

Please reply ASAP.

XFX nforce 630i motherboard
500 GB SATA HD
550 Watts PW Supply

Thanks for the reply.

dont you think that the GTX 260 will perform much better than a HD 5770.

I want to run all the games on my PC, please suggest me the best graphic card in the price range of GTX 260

NFS shift, Dead Space, Crysis Warhead, Avatar, God Father 2 and the latest upcoming games.

One more question, if I upgrade my CPU then can I run all the games at max with your suggested HD 5570 card and also please suggest a suitable CPU (socket LGA 775)

Your processor will be a bottleneck until you upgrade.

You could get an E7500. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for $112. i have this one and it's fast AS HELL. Cheap and cool, very overclockable... The stock cooler is hard to install as you may read in a bunch of this processor reviews but this is one of the best LGA775 for the money. I checked, your motherboard is compatible with this one (=. E7500 + 5770 = you won't have to upgrade for a while buddy (=

But will a HD 5770 (2.0 or 2.1 card) run at full speed on a 1.0 a slot (630i/7100 mob) or will it slow down
