They seem to fulfil every spec that the current RAM I run have, so they should work... Right?
And secondly, the GPU. The motherboard I have has one PCI-E 1.0 16x slot, and I realise I can't go and get a high-end card and expect it to run.
I also realise that my CPU will also bottleneck anything too powerful.
So what are my options? I was thinking of a 5570 or a 5670, and was wondering if they would be compatible with my motherboard. I believe the 5000 series run on 2.1 PCI-E but I also believe 2.1 is backwards-compatible with 1.0.
Thanks in advance, hopefully someone who has been ina similar position can help me out here.
