Thinking of buying Radeon HD 6750, but has just remembered to check the compatibility with my motherboard. I'm currently using Abit 145D as my motherboard, will the GPU fit into it?
If it is this one, than no problem. But your CPU and RAM will bottleneck here.
Based on the Intel 945GC chipset coupled with a ICH7 southbridge, the new budget board boasts support for Intel's current 65nm processors and also supports the next generation of 45nm processors with front side bus speeds up to 1333MHz. The 145D supports dual-channel DDR2 667 modules via its two DIMM slots. The I45D has 1 PCI-E x16, 1 PCI-E x1 and 3 PCI expansion slots. The board also has 4 SATA 3Gb/s connections, 5.1 channel on-board audio and integrated 10/100 LAN. Pricing and availability were not announced.
Yep, that's the motherboard that I'm using all right, even the colors are downright similar. what exactly do you mean by CPU and RAM bottleneck? I'm a real beginner when it comes to PC terms.
