Hello, I am going to buy a Asus R9 380 Strix graphics card. However, I don't know if it will be compatible with my motherboard. Here are the specs of my motherboard.My current graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 6510.Will my current motherboard run it or do I need to replace it? Here are the specs of my current motherboard:

Also,would replacing an Asus R9 380 Strix with a Sapphire R9 380 Strix make a difference?

Should work fine, just make sure you have a beefy enough power supply. You need one that's at least 550W, but preferably 600W.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your motherboard only does PCI-Express 2.0, so it won't take full advantage of the card you're putting in it. Keep that in mind.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your motherboard may have overheating issues with the new graphics card. Honestly, I'd recommend getting a nice new motherboard, but OP didn't ask for that.

How would a video card cause a motherboard to overheat? The closest I can think of is how old Voodoo cards tend to overheat when you put them in anything newer than a Pentium III system.

By pegging the NorthBridge, I'd assume.

But on Intel, at least, the CPU runs the PCIe lanes and all the motherboard provides is wiring.
