Graphics card - motherboard compatibility question
Oct 11, 2010, 5:22 AM
I am currently using this motherboard:
I want to upgrade to a more advanced graphics card. I am considering this card:
My questions is about the compatibility. The motherboard says it has
2 x PCI-E x16 (blue @ x16 mode, black @ x4 or x1 mode)
and the graphics card states it is a
PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
This might be simple for some but i dont know if those are compatible.

I would suggest that you wait for a week or two, let ATI release the 6000 series, and get a GTX 460 768 MB when its price drops.

I would wait for the price drop

yea even the 5770 will probably drop in a week or so, but if you want to do it now then go for it
