Question
Hello I been wanting to get a new graphics card but I'm afraid the card won't go into the graphics card. I want to get an EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti Superclock w/G-SYNC Support 2GB GDDR5 128bit, Dual-Link DVI-I, HDMI, DP 1.2 Graphics Card and my motherboard is a GA-78LMT-USB3. Will that graphic card go in the motherboard

Answer
It'll work as long as it will physically fit. The video card is PCI-Express 3.0 x16 and the motherboard PCI-Express slot is 2.0 x16 but video cards are backwards compatible, so it'll work.

I've had cards a few times that wouldn't physically fit though, so make sure it will fit in the slot and line up properly with the case openings.
