Hi MMO-C community, I have a question that is worrying me. First off here are my current system specs.
- CPU: Core 2 Quad Q9550 OC'd @ 3.2 GHz
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 OC
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA EP43-DS3L
RAM: 4GB Kingston DDR2 (DRAM Frequency from CPU-Z is 456.0 MHZ)
Hard Disks: 1x Western Digital Caviar WD3200AAJS - 320 GB SATA, 1x SAMSUNG HD103SI - 1TB Ecogreen SATA HDD.
Power Supply: 600W (Power supply is not the problem, I have a friend running the same card on that PSU but on a P55 UD6 Mobo)
I am planning on replacing my beloved GTX 260 with an ATI HD5870, the question is: Will my good old motherboard be able to handle the beast graphics card? Changing my Mobo is not an option for me right now, but I can get an HD 5850 instead if it can't handle the 5870. Will make me a sad panda though.
Any help would be much appreciated.
