Will my MSI890GXM-G65 Support a Radeon 6000 series card?

Was looking to possibly upgrade from my Radeon 5850 Video Card one day and was wondering if anyone can tell me if my MSI 890GXM-G65 is able upgrade to either a PCI-E 2.1 Video Card or if it will support any of the Radeon 6000 Series cards?

My specs are

MSI 890GXM-G65
AMD Six Core Processor
650 Watt Power Supply
4 GB Ram
5850 Radeon XFX Video Card

  1. yes it will support any kind of gpu it has an pcie expansion slot so no need to worry just go and buy your gpu hurry!!!>:)
  2. It would support PCI-E 2.1 and 3.0 cards fine.
  3. PCIE 2.1 is the same as PCIE 2.0.

    What are you gonna get? HD 6xxx card won't be a major jump over your current HD 5850.
  4. ilysaml- What would you recommend for a graphics card that would last for awhile longer than what I currently have? Might also get a new Power Supply as well because if I upgrade to a newer and higher level Graphics card won't I need a stronger Power Supply than 650 watts. I was looking at possibly getting a 750 Watts Power supply or an 800 Watt Power supply. What do you think?

    What kind of PSU do you currently own? If it's a quality branded PSU it will be very sufficient for your needs. A true 650W PSU can run any high end GPU.

    Right now I recommend getting HD 7850, it's the best bang for buck, performs better than the top end HD 6xxx.
  6. ^+1 i m also going to say that hd 7850 only.

    for gpu get this one.:)

    its an asus dc ii good cooling overclocking low in noise.:)

    for psu get this at cheaper price it will be good for future upgrade or maybe crossfire.:)
