Compatible CPU, Compatible GPU,

  applebottoms 20:29 30 Jun 2019


Recently I got caught up with gaming and would like to upgrade my pc. I've had several looks on the inside and saw there was no GPU whatsoever. After quite some time of digging, I decided which one I wanted to get: AMD Radeon RX 580 (8gb). I heard it's quite a combo with an Intel i7-6700. As I am not an expert in pcs, I was wondering if it indeed is a good graphics card and if it will work properly.

Also, I've had a look at my motherboard and saw there was a narrow space right underneath the GPU. I'd like to know if any graphics card will fit.

Thank you in advance.

You are in complex and potentially expensive territory with this.

How old is the PC, what Make and Model is it and the same details for the MOBO.

The slot marked PCIEx16 is indeed intended to accommodate a graphics card but, you need to do some research first.

Check that your power supply can supply enough power and has the necessary outlets or, that you can fit a better one if needed. Check that your case has enough room for your chosen graphics card. Check on the motherboard manufacturer's website, in the CPU support list, to make sure your chosen CPU is compatible and. if it isn't see what is. Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2H
