I am not all that bright and thus I need help picking some new parts for my PC, not being a techie and never having fiddled about inside a PC before I thought it best to check I am looking at the right things before I went ahead and spent Â£300+ on new parts.
So I think I need two things A graphics card and a subsequent Power supply.
The issue I am having is in regards to the connections/sockets.
My motherboard is an Asus M5A78L-M USB3.
The graphics cards that I am looking at all say they use a PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot, which is an issue because my motherboard says it has 1x PCI-E x16 but not whether its a 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0. So I guess the question is obvious can my motherboard hold something like an AMD 7970 if it requires a PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot ?
Thanks for reading
