Mobo/GPU question! Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Graphics Last response: March 23, 2011 4:42 PM in Graphics & Displays Share jnetixz March 23, 2011 3:24:29 PM Will a 1GB GT 430 & this work together with a VX450, e7200 and 2GB of DDR2 RAM? Helping a mate upgrade, never really learned about backward PCIE bandwidth compatibility. Halp plx. There is no second option, he's not buying anything, I have the parts lying around and wanted to ask before I drive 2hrs to pickup his PC tomorrow!

He really only plays WoW, so DX11 is preferred, but only if his MOBO's PCIE x4 slot will suffice. | Report abuse jnetixz March 23, 2011 4:20:34 PM I'm thinking maybe getting a Q6600 will provide more of a performance increase if it's just for WoW, being a game that relies more on CPU as opposed to GPU — thoughts? He's using an AGP x8 7300GT atm. | Report abuse jnetixz March 23, 2011 4:42:55 PM Eeep nvm he's going to wait a week or two and build an SB system. Thanks anyway.
