Hello! I have in mind to upgrade my system and i was looking for ATI 3870. The question i have in mind is if that VGA is compatible with the GA P35-DQ6. ATI works on pci express 2.0 and the motherboard specification shows only pci express ... meaning 1.1
Could anyone help me with some information, please? I need to know for sure if there are no problem. The VGA is not available in my hometown and i need to order it online. If those two are incompatible, I will buy one on the X38 chip ... possibly GA X38-DQ6. I was looking for the older P35 chip because I won't upgrade to the new 45nm processors or the new DDR3 1600+ memories.
For your information, the processor will be Intel Q6600 ... an affordable quad core
... non-native, I know ... but more powerfull than AMD's new processors. Thank you!
