Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6-C supports GTX470?


Does a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6-C supports a GT470 video card?

I want to buy also from Gigabyte the GTX470SO but from the specs I have seen it seems my MoBo simply does not have the required pcie slot?!....

  1. According to page 7 of the manual (link below) you do have a PCI-e slot and this motherboard is recent enough to be PCI-e 2.0 compliant.
  2. That is realy m problem, from the reading of the specs and manual I got the impression that it does not have a PCIe 2.0, it is customery for MoBos to have that written quite expliced on specs...

    Today and for this system I already had my share of mis-happens, I am reluctant because I already had decide to buy the Asrock P55 Deluxe Mobo which supports i5 and i7 processors with socket 1156, I almost payed for one and in the very last minute I checked again and notice that it does not support i5-760 even though it is a socket 1156 processor that works with a P55 chipset :o .

    After this explained maybe you can all understand my reluctance... does anyone has a system working or ever worked on a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6-C with a GTX470?
  3. ok great, thanks for the help!

    As for the Asrock Mobo I've got quite lost myself, in the supported cpu list for Asrock P55 Deluxe it simply does not appears the i5-760 I am buying... although the rest of the Lynnfield is mentioned...
  4. I thought so too so I send them a ticket but I dont think they will answer it because the newer P55 Mobos (Deluxe3 and Extreme4) are more expensive than the Deluxe, I figure they should have launched a BIOS update by now... it they were going to.
  5. Here are the Expansion slots for the P55-UD6-C


    1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16_1)
    1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8_1) (The PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX8_1 slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
    1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x4 (PCIEX4_1)
    2 x PCI Express x1 slots
    2 x PCI slots

    The GTX 470 needs a PCI-E 2.0 x16 and the P55-UD6-C comes with two of those, so u even can install a SLI GTX470 in that mobo.

    Regarding the ASRock u can see here the CPU support list for the mobo and support both i5-750 and i7-750S.

    Now if u ask me what mobo I'd choose I'd go with the Gigabyte mobo by far.
  6. thanks for the help!

    As for the Asrock I know it supports the 750 but I am going to buy the i5-760 either way, I decided to go with the Gigabyte for more 30eur.
  7. Good choice Gigabyte is a very solid manufacturer.
  8. Answer from Asrock to my question about the P55Deluxe not supporting the i5-760:


    If you still have to buy a motherboard, then I recommend choosing one of the models that can already support your i5 760 (with the proper BIOS version):

    I will check with colleagues in Taiwan if they can also get the i5 760 supported on P55 Deluxe.

    Best regards,

    ASRock Support

    ASRock Europe B.V.

    This goes along with what I thought...but if this guys manage to get the i5-760 supported on the P55Deluxe they will be my heros (again because I allways loved their products) :bounce:
  9. I had the same answer from MSI with my old K9A2 Platinum and the 955 when comes out, even that I took the risk and buy the CPU without and official support BIOS and after some contact support they confirmed that MSI was working in the BIOS version to support it.

    But like I say up i still prefer Gigabyte.
  10. I went for the Gigabyte also. Thanks for your help all you guys!
