New video card, Mobo Comparability? Tags: Graphics Cards ATI Graphics Product Last response: November 16, 2010 7:08 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Recklow November 15, 2010 10:00:04 PM Okay so currently i have H-RS880-uATX (Aloe) as my Mobo. I am looking to upgrade the Video card. I am running a ATI 4200 Integrated. Now will my MoBo support an Nvidia Gforce 460? Or am i stuck with using an ATI 5870/5850? My budget is around 400.

Your motherboard will support it though. Also note that SLI may not work, since the Nvidia chipsets on AMD motherboards haven't worked very well with the recent cards, so if that's a future aspiration that is something to be aware of.

So If i cant do http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... Then can you tell me the absolute best card i can run. PSU not in the mix. Recklow November 16, 2010 6:38:14 PM I plan to upgrade my PSU, so would that change the options for me? Recklow November 16, 2010 6:45:19 PM The only reason i would get the 650 is becuase it came with http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... Recklow November 16, 2010 6:51:37 PM Already been done, I have a 24 and 27cm card sitting in a box and a same size psu as the one i would be buying. They all fit. Recklow November 16, 2010 6:54:47 PM Okay, let me back up a min. I'm stupid... My case will fit a pci express slot in the back. And has 1 slot in the Mobo available. So that would mean that the card is fine to run. Correct me if im wrong. Recklow November 16, 2010 7:08:02 PM Well, Thanks for all the help, and im sorry for my misunderstanding. Thanks again for helping me work it out, I am very thankful. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
