Am upgrading my video cards but do not wish to change out the motherboard at this time.
I have tried to look through other questions to see if this has already been answered (and I am sure it must have come up before) but with thousands of questions I could not go through them all and while typing in my question nothing popped up that was relative.
The slot will have a number as well. Check with GPUz.

But yes, you'll be fine, post your mobo if you need a confirmation.
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.20 GHz Please say this is good... Thank You.
"This is good" Actually, the Phenom was one of my past favs.

Then in that box, its the info before the @ you want (whatever numbers are greater). GPUs are backwards compatible, so you can use a 3.0 in a 2.0 slot.
I use 4 monitors and 2 video cards (dual DVI) can you suggest a pair of cards for me in the $60-75 range each?
Was looking at this for $65 each. EVGA GeForce GT 730 1GB DDR3 128bit Dual DVI mHDMI Graphics Card 01G-P3-2731-KR
companyclerk, If you're wanting a card with 128 bit VRAM, GDDR5 or better would be recommended for gaming or other VRAM bandwidth related things.
They look like really great cards... A bit out of my price range.
Thank you all for your input on this I am going to order 2 ... EVGA GeForce GT 740 2GB Super Clocked GDDR5 128-Bit Dual DVI mHDMI Graphics Cards 02G-P4-3747-KR
Yes I know they are not the $300+ GTX stuff but since I am getting close to 70 years on this planet, I think they will do just fine for my eyes.
Again, thank you all for your input.
