is my motherboard and future graphics card compatible?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, my motherboard is a EVGA 780i SLI, and i plan on getting an EVGA GTX 570, which is gddr5. is gddr5 backwards compatible, so it would work with this mobo? or will it be bottle-necked given that gddr5 wasn't out at the time of purchasing this motherboard.

thanks a lot.

Your motherboard has 3 x PCI-E 16x 2.0 slots. It will definitely not be a bottlekneck and it will be 100% compatible.

It doesn't matter what type of VRAM it uses.

Pretty much Same situation here. EVGA 780i SLI mobo. Currently have 8800GTS in there. I need a card with open GL 2.1 or higher so I think I am going to go with GeForce GTX 550. I assume that these will work together since you said the 570 would work?
Also, can you tell me how you KNOW these will work together? Is there a compatibility list online somewhere or do you just know this from experience?
Also, a bit off topic, my current card and this new card would not be able to be SLI together, correct? Because 1 is gtX and one is gtS? I appreciate your help!
