    Can I swap-out this GPU for this one?


    My PCs motherboard is a 6yr old Gigabyte GA-P67-UD3-B3. The expansion slots for this motherboard are identified as;
    • PCI Express 2.0x16, 2 (x16, x8),
    • 3 x PCI Express x1
    • 2 x PCI Slots.


    My PC has a 5yr old EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti installed in one of the PCI Express 2.0x16 slots
    & has a max of only CUDA 2.1. The card works but newer video editing software calls for a better GPU with support for at least CUDA 3.0.

    I'm confused looking at replacing the GPU because the new card I'm looking to purchase says "Interface - PCI 3.0".

    Will this newer GPU work properly in my older motherboard?
    Thanks!
    George

    It will work, they are backward compatible. What card are you looking to upgrade to?

    Thanks! So now performance issues? That's great.

    I have a EVGA GTX 560 Ti now & need a physically similar sized card for space reasons. I was looking at the Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti D5 4G or similar. According to nVidia it's CUDA 6.1. I need CUDA 3.0 or better.

    Is the GTX 1050 Ti a good card?

    If the card somehow doesn't work well on the older MB (Gigabyte GA-P67-UD3-B3 w/ Intel i5-2500K), I'll swap out the old with a new MB, Ryzen 1700 CPU, RAM & keep the GTX 1050 Ti.

    I checked online and those 1060's no matter who makes them are 300.00 or over in price, the 1050's are almost half those prices.

    Been a while since I looked at prices. They used to be closer I thought.

    I use Vegas Video Editing 14 & it seems the software preforms best with AMD graphic cards which are in short supply. The ones that are recommended & available are $500 +.

    A-a-a-a-a-a!

    Prices are being driven up because of bitcoin miners. They are buying almost everything in sight, except most of the real high end cards.
