New graphics card, old motherboard - problems?

Posted 14 August 2011 - 09:17 AM

My motherboard uses a Radeon x600pro graphics card. Something like this: http://www.3dvelocit...ax600/ax600.htm

The card goes in the PCIe slot. Can I simply buy any other graphic card, that would go in the PCIe slot, and use it with the desktop, if all power requirements etc are met?

The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-8I915PM

Thanks.

The answer is yes, but I'm sure there's one card out there somewhere that won't play nice. Murphy's Law says you'll buy that one.

i would say that it will be nice to check if your PSU will have the power to support it too.
