Hello, I am just seeking some help. I need to replace my gfx card which happens to be an ati radeon 2400xt 256mb. I want to replace it with this card here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


This is the mobo currently in my pc:
http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket...

Would any one be able to tell me if this will be compatible? I wouldn't like to have to change any other components if it is not necessary.

have you considered something other than the 2600Pro tho.

im sure there are better gaming cards for the price point.

Yeah he has to get that card do to the fact of what type of CPU he has and his OS. In order to use the top cards of today he would have to up grade everything. Good luck to you OP. And yes that card will work.

What do his cpu and os have to do with it? I dont think anyone was suggesting the "top cards of today", but what the op is doing is trading a 83 ford with 300,000 miles on it for an 83 ford with 298,000 miles on it, so to speak. Something like a 5450, or a 4650 for $60 or whatever would be a more sensible purchase, better card less money

Thanks for the replies, I just found out that pcie 2.0 is backward compatible! This opens up tons of options now!

Exactly, that's how I realized that, I noticed you guys mentioned some 2.0 cards and did more research to come to my conclusion. Thanks guys

That is funny I like that compaireson. What I ment by the CPU is that if he has P4 or below and he has a PCIe slot of 1.0 if he trys to get a bigger card might have a bottle neck problem.

Or the 2.0 card could have issues with 1.0 slot. You have to keep upgrading the MOBO and the bios inorder to put the 2.0 or higher cards in the 1.0 slot. Sometimes you get lucky and it works and sometimes it doesn't.

I am all for him getting the better GPU's but he has to know what might happen. Have you look at his link to the MOBO? In there brings some concerns and with out knowing exactly what he has. Kinda in the dark.

@OP I am just curious what your CPU is and your PSU brand and wattage is? Also what is the case you have all this stuff in? If you don't mind telling me?

Well, let me update you all first by saying I just bought an xfx 1gb pcie 2.1 card and it works just fine. I'm running a phenom 9600 quad, and the psu has no stickers on it so I can't tell the wattage (its a gateway not custom) I did not have to update bios at all

Well that is good news to hear. I am glad I don't have to hear another bad deal story about how I followed all of your advises and nothing worked.

You are one of the lucky ones and you should be patting your self on the back for your own up grade. If eveything works no bottle necking and no shortage of power then all's good.

Here are a couple of links if you are even intrested in to help you watch your temps, your GPU usage and a bunch of other stuff. Agian that is good news and I wish you the best of luck. I hope this will help.
