High End Graphic Card On Low End Mobo ??

Planned Graphic Card : ATI/AMD HD 7850 2gb DDR5 PCI 3.0

Mobo : Gigabyte 78-lmt-USB3 ( DDR3 Supported Mobo with PCI 2.0 )

As the mobo is very low end (LOW COST) and The graphic card is some what high end i was prescribed some computer technician that Graphic card may fail on the Mobo as the Mobo is Low end...Even though the mobo supports initially it may not work efficiently casuing some problems.
But i dont think it is true !!!

Will there be any such happenings occur ??

Please check out the Mobo specs and also graphic card specs for getting clear idea to the solution in my case !

More about high graphic card mobo
  1. Never heard anything of that sort. Friend runs a 6870 on a $35 AM3 motherboard.

    That motherboard is of a good make and should have no problems running any graphics card on the market.

    BTW I wouldn't consider that GPU high end. More so middle of the range.

    That tech fed you a line of bullshit.
  5. yup there should be no problem and don't listen to those idiots in local stores. They literally know nothing about computers thats why I always do all my questioning online.
  6. Thank You All So much for answering :D

    So can i get to a conclusion that even the highest graphic present at now can also run on my Mobo right ??
  7. Yup. Any PCI-e graphics card will work in your motherboard.
  8. yeah it will work, just that there might be a bottleneck if you are using a not so powerful chip
  9. What abt about HD 7950 or HD 7970 Graphic Card ?? It is having 3GB 384-bit GDDR5...
    Will that 384 Bit also support for my Mobo ?
  10. a 7970 would work, but bottlenecks are going to happen instantly
