    Good to see the quad is still going strong.

    I would recomend a platform jump soon though if you plan on playing the latest games at max settings.

    I would recomend for a graphics card, a GTX660 from nvidia, or a Radeon 7870 from AMD.
  2. Thanks for the replies,I will do some research those cards.
  3. Should the GTX660 from nvidia, or a Radeon 7870 from AMD fit in the motherboard.
    Because my Maximus formula (limited edition) has PCI Express 2.0 x16 bus interfaces,and those graphic cards have 3.0 x16 bus interface.
    A friend told me that this probably couldn't work.
    So I wanted to ask you guys.

    Or should I also upgrade the motherboard?

    Your friends an idiot, PCIE is backward compatable.

    Also, no LGA775 motherboard supports PCIE2.0
