Leosaurus rex July 22, 2012 7:29:11 PM what is a good PSU? also, is the gtx560 a good graphics card? it's my first graphics card and im paying 120 bucks for it, i mean, is it gonna get me far with 3d design and some gaming? Best solution rolli59 a c 214 À AMD July 22, 2012 7:38:44 PM It is a good card for your uses. Gaming wise it will handle most things well up to 1080P resolution. TT PSU if you already have it will handle a single card fine but better brands are Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, Enermax, XFX or OCZ to name few.

I have this same board and what your saying is that the first slot is x16 and the second is x4 that I can't run two ati 7850's. Do they both need to be x16? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
