I'm running some random motherboard that came with my gateway dx4300-03, and i want to upgrade my GPU to an ATI Radeon 5670.
Here is my computer specs
My problem is that my motherboard only has slots for PCI-Express 1x and PCI Express x16, but the card I want needs a PCI-Express 2.1 (x16) slot
is the card I want
I really don't want to have to waste money on that if is not compatible with my computer.
Somebody please help!!!!
