Can I use my old gpu in a new motherboard? Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Motherboards PCI Express Graphics Last response: July 18, 2011 7:34 PM in Graphics & Displays Share kevin13 July 18, 2011 4:58:08 PM I plan to upgrade hardware one piece at a time. When I swap the motherboard, will my 8800 GT with pci-e 16x slide into the pci-e 2.0 16x slot on the new mb? One more thing, will my old gpu be better than on-board graphics in case I go that route?

I'll get a new gpu when a cool game comes out that I feel like playing.

Not even. The HD 6620G graphics core in AMD's A8-3xxx APU series is a little less powerful than the Radeon HD 5570 which is a lot less powerful than a 9800GT. jonpaul37 a b U Graphics card a b V Motherboard July 18, 2011 7:34:51 PM Yes, as long as the motherboard you install has a PCI-E 16 slot, you will be able to use that 8800GT as it is backward compatible. Currently there are no integrated graphics solutions that are better than an 8800 GT. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumNew GPU , old motherboard , will it work?
