Have you tried checking the Asus site for the specs? Seems like the first place to look. Otherwise you're just asking "Will someone else do my reading for me?"

More powerfull motherboard? Dude the mother board(except the ones that have integrated videos) are just to place parts of your computer(very simple explanation). ATI 5770 is using 1 PCI Express x16 port which have so your motherboard will support it. However you may want to check if your PSU will hold your new video card.
EDIT: btw i think this should be in Computer Support & Operating Systems forum

There's a bit more to a motherboard then that, and there is power behind a motherboard.

The chipset is usually where you look if you want to know the 'power'. For example in the OP's case they'd be concerned about how many PCI Express lanes there are on the machine, and how many of the ports are full 16x slots (just because they're the size of 16x slots doesn't mean they run at 16x slots). Furthermore you may want to make sure that the PCIe specifications meet the demands of the card, the card may require PCIe 2.0, but your board may not (in this case you need to look into both the card and the board).

Of course 99% of the time these things go unnoticed because most all motherboards with PCI express will at least 'work' and never raise a warning to the normal user who only has the one or two expansion cards in it. But this doesn't mean they're running at best performance speeds, and that doesn't mean if they happen to have more epxansion cards that the system will support all of them at the same time.


there is a reason there are high end performance motherboards, they have high end performance parts in them that allow for better stuff. Faster RAM, more PCIe lanes, more RAM slots, fater/more SATA ports, etc.

You just gotta make sure the pins match up. It's probably the processor that you're worried about. ;) Also, wrong forum.

Dude, what about the PSU? you need a good psu to run a good graphics card.http://cdn2.dreamincode.net/dreamincode/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/gun_bandana.gifAttached Imagehttp://cdn2.dreaminc...t/bananaman.gif
