What's the best card an Asus P5W DH Deluxe can take?

I'm currently using a rather aged system:

Asus P5W DH Deluxe
Core2Duo E6600
2 gigs RAM
Nvidia 7950GT

and, as the thread suggests, was wondering what would be the 'best' the board can handle. As it's the original PCI-E and not the newer revision, something like an Nvidia 480GTX would probably be a bit of a waste, though I am planning on upgrading the CPU and RAM as well, so no worries about bottlenecking. Cheers!

  1. No worries, even the most powerful current GPUs will have plenty of bandwidth on a PCIe 1.x 16x slot.
    Currently the 'best' GPU you can get is the GTX 580, although you would probably be better served with a much less expensive GTX 570 or 6970.

    Just be sure to check that your PSU has enough amperage before dropping a monster card into your rig!
  2. Righto, thanks sexy!

    P.S. Tie Fighter was brilliant.
  3. Yeah, they just don't make them like they used to :(

    Best luck with your upgrade!
