GA-MA785GT-UD3H Graphics Card Compatibility

Hi y'all!

Yesterday my GPU MSI GTX 280 OC died, it was a nice card until now, I want to find a replacement but by MOBO GA-MA785GT-UD3H its stopping me.

I wanted to get this:
http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/GTX660_TIDC22GD5/#overview

But it scares me since it says it uses a PCI Express 3.0 port and mine I believe is 1.0

I would really appreciate any other suggestions for GPU, or If I need to change my mobo, is the SAbertooth or ROF Formula V good optiones out there?

PC's Main purpose: Gaming and sony vegas video rendering (starcraft 2, diablo, steam things and well modern games)

CPU = AMD Phenom x2
RAM= 4 gigs

Thanks in advance :)

  1. AMD785G chipset supports PCI Express version 1.1. There is no need to change your mainboard.
    PCI-E is backwards compatible, so you are good to go with this 660Ti.
    In case you wonder, performance penalty will be minimal, about 1%.

    That's awesome I was waorried about it, I might go afterall with this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130809

    And I might save money for an intel CPU :)

    BTW any thoughts on the evga card?
  3. Those reference coolers tend to be loud. If you want a 660ti go with MSI PE edition. It is one of the best models.
