Graphic Accelerators/upgrade of graphics card
Hi my pc set up is
MB M3N-HT Deluxe/HDMI
GPU NVIDIA GTX 260
CPU AMD PHEMON 2 X 4 920
I would like to upgrade my gpu to a high spec gtx card. can you advice me as to the best compatible card to buy.
This PC motherboard has three Pci-Ex 16x(V-1.0) slots. Latest graphics cards are Pci-Ex 16x(V-3.0) and backward compatible. Pci-Ex 3.0 doubles the amount of bandwidth compared to PCI-E 2.0 & triples to Pci-Ex V-1.0,you'll only see a difference of 5-9 frames per second if you use it on Pci-Ex 16x(V-1.0) slot.
As an example my gaming rig has Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard and Nvidia Geforce GTX780Ti graphics card this motherboard supports Pci-Ex 16x (V-2.0) and graphics card support Pci-Ex 16x(V-3.0).
I am having no problem playing games I.e. (Titanfall,Battlefield 4, Grid 2 & Autosports) at max or ultra settings .
Conclusion is that you can buy any graphics card that suits your budget and requirement.
