Hello, I'm currently working on a new computer and in a bit of a bind. I have an i5-2500k and a z77 1155 mobo will they work together?

  1. Absolutely. No problem whatsoever. The newer chipsets are totally backwards compatible with Sandy Bridge
  2. the only difference is the lack of PCI 3.0 but with any single card not saturating the PCI 2.0 bus, your fine.
  3. So If I have a AMD 7870 with it on the 3.0 it will work great together?

    So If I have the 7870 it will be ok with the 3.0?
  5. It'll be just fine.

    absolutely. PCI 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 are all completely compatible with each other. only some PCI 1.0 motherboards had problems with a PCI 2.1 graphics card but the same card would good in 2.0 and 3.0
