Im currently have a DFI Lan Party 790GX-M2rs mothboard what the best 5 video cards i could possible install on to this older motherbaord card? IF you can keep in mind i like to game aswell. any help would be great
i have a DFI LANPARTY 790GX-m2rs - Motherboard AMD PHENon(tm) 9950 Quad Core. no cooling except fans.and 4 GB GEIL pc2-6400 ddr2-800 CL=4-4-4-12 and 80gb harddrvie. Is that enough specs? Price range for card would be about $300-500?
ANother side note sorry if i changed mr RAM to DDR2 1066 4gb is that going to make such a signifiance of difference?
Yes Thats Enough,1066mhz wont make a big difference anyhow,
in That Price Range you Will Be Able to Find Alot Of Awesome Gpus:
Here are Your Choices:if ati Then This One,As it can Be Unlocked into Hd 6970.
If Nvidia,Then Buy This:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
and only 80gb hard drive?lol,for gaming atleast buy 250gb.
Neither you or I could tell the difference between the 1 or extra FPS we might get by switching to that speed ram. Waste of money. What's your monitors native resolution ? No sense in installing a card that your system can't handle or don't need. Another waste of money. I ran a PCI-E 2.1 card on a 1.0 slot. No problems so no need to worry over that. What games ? and what else are you using your machine for ?.... ( apps )
I would stick with your current ram very little benefit from faster ram. With your current CPU I would opt for HD6870 or GTX 560Ti. Then on your budget you can upgrade the CPU to an AM3 Phenom II X4 and a HD6950/70 or GTX570 (pending your PSU being big enough). http://www.dfi.com.tw/portal/CM/cmproduct/XX_cmproddeta...
The one tried to I link to is DK790GX-m2rs, apparently they don't want you to link, has support up to Phenom II X4 965BE with their latest BIOS!
You can look up the cpu support list on individual motherboard page!
