Solved!

Graphics Card Compatibility

Hello,

What I would like to find out is; will my motherboard's PSI-e x16 input slot be compatible with a PCI-e 2.0 or 2.1 card. I know it can only be one or the other. I'll provide a link with my Mainboards information: http://www.findlaptopdriver.com/pegatron-2a6c-corporati...

This is the card I'd like: http://www.amazon.com/XFX-HD-677X-ZNFR-Edition-Dual-Lin...

If it is not compatible I would much appreciate if you could suggest a different card around 100$ price range I would be most appreciative.

Hi,

 

We need to know your machine, because we need to know few things including its power supply. Please let us know what is it ?

 

Regards.

Well,

 

The powersupply is a 300W (I don't think it's 80+ so yeah, more of a reason to upgrade).

 

The main board has 2 PCIe x1 slots and 1 PCI-e x16 slot and a single PCI slot.

 

I have a 400W in a old rig at a friends also.

I know,

 

did you know how inexpensive PSU's are? A 750W for 80$, cheap? Plus I have a 400W I never got around to swapping.

My PSU isn't as much of my concerns as whether or not it is compatible. Other people have taught me recently that a PCIe-x16 is outdated and that a 2.0/2.1/3.0 would work anyway. They would be backwards compatible. They also recommended a video card that can draw off of 400W AND play games like Bf3 while being bottlenecked. So, are you inexperienced in this field or something? Why can't you explain the whole story like my friends did? Shame shame sir.
