I need to change my old ASUS 5870 video card;
This is my actually configuration:
Motherboard: Sapphire Pure AM3RS790G
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE ( O.C. 3.7 GHz )
VGA: ASUS ATi Radeon HD 5870 1 GB
RAM: Corsair Dominator 2*4 8 GB 1600 MHz
SSD: Corsair Force LS 120 GB + HDD 1 TB 7200 rpm
PSU: Corsair HX 1000 w modular.
ASUS R9 290x it's compatible with my configuration ?
PCI 3.0 cards SHOULD work on 2.0 boards, since 2.1 was 100% backwards compatible (well with 2.0 that is), and 3.0 is apparently similar to 2.1 in a lot of ways.
Only 1.x boards are problematic, but just on AMD cards.
So true... on the bright side: GTA V isn't as CPU limited as GTA IV...
