  1. Hi guys,
    I know this is noobish question, but I decided to buy new video card - Gigabyte radeon HD 5850 (I choose between Gigabyte and Sapphire, and decided to go with Gigabyte because it has one aditional year waranty 3/2 years and they seem pretty much the same in performance), but I dont know if it is possible to add it to my motherboard. I have, as mentioned, Asus M3A78 PRO. Here is a review of it with all specs: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article855-page1.html

    btw. if you told me how to find out for myself, I would also be glad, so next time I won't have to ask, thanks !!!

    Your motherboard does indeed support that graphics card. It has the necessary PCI-E x16 slot. You need to make sure your power supply is sufficient.

    Hi Jamesqin,
    Just go to your Mother board manufacturers site and it will have all of the specs, and supports (CPU,Memory, ETC) here is the manufacturers for your board.
