Quick AMD build motherboard question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
HIS H585FN1GD Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161330

The card says 2.1 x 16. The 2.1 x 16 is confusing me. Does that mean a need a different motherboard?

If not, im gonna stick with this motherboard

PCI Express 2.1
PCI Express 2.1 supports a large proportion of the management, support, and troubleshooting systems planned to be fully implemented in PCI Express 3.0. However, the speed is the same as PCI Express 2.0.
