Greetings,

I am currently using an asus sabertooth 99fx mobo, and am looking to swipe a new gpu to complete my new build. So far I'm leaning towards the new gtx 660. I'm wondering if my mobo will support the 2 gb of ddr5 that the gpu is equipped with. I've searched the mobo manual and a few sites and am coming up short on answers. Any insight is appreciated.

Cheers

I don't see why it wouldn't. Your new GTX 660 has 2GB of VRAM, which any motherboard would support. I don't see why it wouldn't since it's part of the GPU. System RAM is another story and totally different, being limited to the slots but how much system RAM you choose to put in it is up to you. Hope this helps. =)

My question boils down to: will a PCIe 2.0 slot on my mobo support a PCIe 3.0 card with ddr5 vram?
