Sabertooth 990FX compatible with MSI R7850 DDR5 ? any steps to take for MOBO before first time booting the new rig ??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Yesterday i put together Sabertooth 990FX
AMD FX-8350
Corsair 120 GB SSD
Corsair GS 700 PSU

I'm planning to get graphics card MSI R7850 Power edition 2GB DDR5

I guess the card works on PCI 3.0 will my MOBO support this card ?

All the things are new and i'm building a PC for the first time.

Do i need to update any bios or anyhthing else like this ?

If yes how? Thank you redface.gif

Just drop it in and it'll work like a charm.

The card works in PCI3 but is backwards compat with 2

Generally you don't need to update BIOS unless you're having an issue.

All you need to do is install windows, install drivers and you'll be good to go.

So for the first time wen i turn on my pc, i just need to watch wat comes on the screen n i'll record it for further support..

But then how do i turn it off again ? n the second time wen i start the pc i shall install an OS.
