Im currently looking to upgrade my Quadro 1800 Graphic's card to get better FPS while playing games such as TEra.
What video card would you reccomend? in either dual or single configurations. I have been been looking into the MSI Dual Frozr GTX570. maybe as a dual setup...
Does this solution make sense or is there a hiccup? Any better solutions?
Pci express x16 3.0 video cards are backwards compatable with pce express x16 2.1, 2.0, 1.1, 1.0.
Your motherboard has a pci express x16 2.0 slot. You may see a few frames dropped from what you would typically see with a radeon 7970 or gtx 680. I really don't think it will be that big of a deal though. They are still going to be your best bet.
I would suggest a 7970 if you are going to overclock like a madman or a gtx 680 if you aren't.
I personally have a gtx 670 ftw running on a pci express x16 2.1 slot and experience pretty much exactly what reviews state.
thank you very much. Your answer has helped alot...
I had been previous told going from PCIE 2.0 into a 3.0 graphics card would work but slow card down to near a PCIE 2.o speed... (Hence the speeds of the GTX 500 series speed respectivly
