  2. What motherboard ?
  3. oh sorry forgot lol.
    BIOSTAR Group N61PC-M2S (Socket AM2 )
  4. Yes your motherboard will be fine with the 4870
  5. you sure?
  6. Yes , the card is backward compatible ,I would also suggest a bios update on the motherboard
  7. check both of the PCI slot...must be compatible.
    Like your card need "PCI Express 2.0 x16"
    check if mobo has that slot.
  8. So long as it has a PCI-e slot you're ok...
  9. what does backword compatible means? how do i update the bios?
    yeah my mobo has that slot
    really? simple as that?
  10. Best answer
    It has a Pci-e X16 slot so its fine

    The card will be backward compatible and will run at 1.0 instead of 2.0

    check the biostar website for your motherboard , download the bios updater or file and follow the instructions exactly to how they are specified. Its not necessary unless you are having any problems , if not , leave it alone.
