Is it PCI-e 1.0, or, 2.0

Its may be 1.0?

Edit.. Boredom made me do a goole search. I would go with the above and get a GTX 460 or a Radeon HD 5870 or something.



Its a 780i mobo... its 2.0

The only reason you could consider getting a 5850 is because at this price you can't go wrong:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...20color%205850
But I'd definitely wait until the gtx 560 comes out before upgrading (January 25th) to see how it does, as it should be faster than the gtx 470 but less than the gtx 570...

Well that is a lot. I did drop 500 on the last card. I was looking a the gtx 570 but there all sold out right now. but if there is a new one coming out I'll wait and see how they all do and see what i want. I'm not a big fan of the ATI cards because my rig had nothing but problems with those cards.

my other problem is I cant use the two cards I do not have the room. Well one slot is my wi fi, the other is the sound card and one is the video card but its so big it covers the other slot. unless there not as think now but I do not think so.

polm: that ati card is for a 2.1 slot. I do not have that unless its the same as the 2.0 slot.

ghost_z: sorry I have no idea I'm out of it today this cold is killing me

thanks guys Now I'm happy. I was thinking I had to drop 1600 on new parts

Your PSU should be fine with a pair of any card on the planet.
However, since anything over a GTS450 would be a major upgrade, then a single 570 would be great.

hmmm well I should say Im also getting a 27" lcd screan too. so maybe two would be better. I have never ran two, whats the real performace of running two do? pros and cons.

ok so a 800w pwer supples ok then. hows running two and what there power supple? because somebody said on newegg that u need a 850w min. i just want to make should before i order.

and can i run two of the 570 right next to one another? they will not get to hot? because the one fan would be right next to the back of the other card.

well this mite kill running two cards. i have three sli express slots and there green. im using one. I have two sli slots that are black. one hold my sound card and the other is my wireless card. if I use another sli express slot(green) i will block one of the sti black slots. So can I put the sound card in the other green slot then or no becauser there for video cards only?
