I'm lost when it comes to these news R7 and R9 series cards. I just want to replace the card I have with its new equivalent. Or is there a chart on amd some where that I cant seem to find? Will I need to update my processor or motherboard for these new cards?


A few specs on my pc:

Windows 10 64bit

Amd Phenom II x6 1100T

800w psu


1tb hard drive

ASUS M4A89GTD-PRO/USB3 motherboard



If there is no equivalent then with those specs what's a good graphics card to get?
