  1. Yes it should handle them fine. Based on the plan to go to 1080P then the HD5770 would be your card just stay away from version 2.1 cards which have had no video issues with older version 1.x slots.
  2. what do u mean for 2.1 and 1.x?

    plz explain me.

    thanks
  3. It is PCIe version your board is older and has a PCIe X16 slot version 1.x, most of the newer AMD (ATI) cards are version 2.1
    Example version 2.1 card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121363
    Example version 2.0 card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129150
  4. so should i buy pcie 1.1 or 2.0 or 2.1?

    i'll get 5770 if the budget allow
    if not i'll get 4850.

    thanks
  5. 2.0 version works regardless of slot. All HD4xxx cards are ver2.0 most HD5xxx cards are ver2.1.
    Nvidia cards are version 2.0
  6. so can i buy all versions for my board?

    and how about the cpu?
    is it enough for the 1080p resoultion with these cards?
    may be on high setting with atmost 4 aa.

    thanks
  7. Just do not buy version 2.1 because of before mentioned no video issue unless there is a BIOS update for your board to correct the issue.
    Your CPU is a fine match for all the cards mentioned.
