Re: Need new GFX card, have 300$/ need help
Running a single card the Radeon will perform great with either a 16X1.0 slot or 8X2.0 PCIE slot, with a 16XPCIE 2.0 slot being the best. If you were running dual cards, I'd make sure to have at least 2 8X2.0 slots, but a single card would run great on pretty much any PCIE motherboard.
Make sure that you have at least a 500W powersupply
Order that XFX one up, install, enjoy.
