Hello all,
I was about to purchase a new video card from newegg, and I became a bit scared to push the buy button when I thought about my motherboard. I'm still running my old IP35 Pro that has never failed me, and I want to make sure that current generation video cards will work in this mobos slots. Thanks.

This is the card I'm looking at:

Wow your board still lives, great stuff. Mine had a weird issue where the SATA ports fell off! As far as the card goes that will just fine in that board, I'm running a 560Ti on a 680i board and that's even older.

TYVM So no bottleneck issues with it? Will I at least out do my 9800gt?

Oh yes and by quite a bit too.

The board won't be the bottleneck, but your processor may be in some games at higher resolutions. Which CPU do you have?

It's at lower resolutions that the CPU has an effect, at higher resolutions the workload will shift to the GPU.

You'll be fine with that CPU.

Yeah, that was one of the best for the chipset you are on. You'll be getting near i3 speeds, which should be good enough for most games with the GTX660.
