Is this Graphics card compatible with the Motherboard???
Hello, Im looking to build a desktop in the near future, and am browsing benchmarks to find the best value for money on parts. Im not looking to spend more than £120 on a graphics card and at the moment im looking at the Radeon HD 6850. My question is, is this compatible with the Asus M5A97 Motherboard? thanks in advance, Stuart

Yes. Most current consumer cards are PCI Express, which most current motherboards support, including the Asus M5A97.
Many thanks, any idea what RAM is compatible with that motherboard too? I believe it has 4 slots, but for the meantime i only want to purchase 8gb of RAM, can you give me a suggestion on value for money too please!
ah thanks, yeah thats definitely a much better choice! here's the part list im looking at, Motherboard Asus M5A97 (pro?) £68 Processor AMD FX 6100 Six Core 3.3Ghz £103 Case & PSU CM Centurion 5ii w/ 650W PS £89.00 Graphic Card Radeon HD 6850 £92 RAM G Skill 2x4gb ddr3 1600mhz £40 HDD SG 2TB HDD £85 Optical Drive Samsung DVD RW £15
and price wise, my parents are prepared to pay £400 towards it, so trying to keep things minimal. together that comes to 500 which im happy with. and i'll be using it for gaming.
another thing, the case i plan to get come with a 650W PSU, is that going to be sufficient?
The PSU should be fine, you only need more if you're using dual GPUs.
