Help Please ! HD 6870


I am building a new PC

here goes the specs :

Corsair 400R Mid Tower Cabinet
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO Cooler
HIS AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X GPU 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
Seagate Barracuda 500 GB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (ST500DM002)
ASRock 970 Extreme 4 Motherboard
AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor
Seasonic S12II 520 Watts PSU
G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL9S-4GBXL) x 2

Just one question is the "HIS AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X" compatible with the motherboard as it is PCI-E 2.1 Bus std and the sapphire one is 2.0 std ????

I am a real noobie so plz suggest and please suggest if rest of the part are compatible with each other :)

  1. Its all good. Al the PCI generations are compatible with each other.

    EDIT: Also replace the FX-4100 with the FX-6300. Much better CPU for a small increase in cost
