SAPPHIRE Radeon graphics card compatible with Asus Motherboard?

Hello,

I am completely new to building computers, and am worried that I might have purchased an incompatible video card for my motherboard.

Here is what I have;

Asus P8P67-M
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5.

Could you tell me if these are compatible? I managed to get the graphics card to fit onto the motherboard in the correct slot, but I just want to make sure it's actually compatible.

Also, if you could tell me how you can find out if specific items are compatible with other items, if the manufacturers don't have compatibility chart that would help a ton!

  1. Yes your video card is compatible. Mixing brands doesn't matter.
  2. Most things are compatable and it's the obvious things that are not. Like the cpu socket , that MB is a 1155 socket so you wouldn't put a 1366 socket cpu in there , the MB supports DDR3 so you wouldn't put DDR2 in there.
    When it comes to video cards and hard drives almost everything will work , you would have to find something very old or really odd to not fit or be compatable.
    As far as a compatable list goes all you have to do is look at the details tab in the MB description to see what is listed there for the types of parts that are acceptable.
  3. I have the graphics card and it works great with the ASUS P7P55D-e Pro MB.

    What problems are you having or are you just asking before you open it ?
