I'm trying to troubleshoot certain problems on my computer (relating to graphic card), so I'm planning to swap my graphics card with a Radeon 6850 that my friend has. It has a PCIe 2.1 and I'm wondering if that will work on my GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard. I tried googling the specs on my motherboard it but it just says 'PCIe x16' which is ambiguous. My current graphics card is a Sapphire Radeon 5770 (PCIe 2.0).
I'm kinda new to this so any help would be appreciated.
Well I know it's easy to test, my concern was that if it does fit something could still go wrong (i.e. damaging the graphics card) if it wasn't compatible or something. But I'm going to assume from the answers I'm getting, I can go ahead and test it anyways.
