Hello guys i just bought an z68 gen3 pro3 mobo which supports pci e 3.0.

Ok now i just found out ati has released gpu hd 7850 which is pci-e 3.0(which i didnt know)
plus its quite affordable so i just need to know if there will be any problems using this mobo and gpu together?

i need to know if it will be 100% working good else ill go to nvidia.

so thanx in advance

Yes, that board will support that card just fine.

But you do realise that to get PCIe3.0, you have to have a Ivy bridge CPU installed. If you have a sandy bridge, it will still run at PCIe2.0.

Ok guys 1 last question i hope it wont sound stupid:p 
Since i have the z68 now and it has an pcie 3 port do you think i can mount a ivy bridge cpu on it?cause if not it confuses me a little why build a mobo with pcie when u cant use it...thnx

Yes. You can install any Ivy Bridge CPU with lga1155 socket into your motherboard. This will get you PCIe3.0.

For now. All Z68 Mobo's support Ivy Bridge. ASRock will get a bios update out that will allow the install of an Ivy Bridge chip in the next couple of months.
