Hello! I was planning on purchasing a Gigabyte 7950 (the 3gb Model?) But I was wondering...Since its pci-e 3.0 must it run on an intel ivybridge? Because currently I have an AMD FX 6100 and a pci 2.0 Gigabyte MOBO...Will it run on my current build?
Pcie is backwards compatible
You dont need 3.0 to run a 3.0 card but will not be able to utilizeThe benefits 3.0 has over 2.0with a cpu that doesnt support it.
In other words youre fine to run a 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot and also with the fx 6100.
