Keep in mind some of these card MAY require a BIOS update AND a more robust power supply.
I have a PC using an Asrock 4coredual SATA2 motherboard and am looking for an upgrade to my video card. Asrock?s website lists several video cards which they claim they support and claim are compatible with this board, unfortunately the majority appear to have been discontinued. Is buying a video card that the motherboard manufacturer supports or states is compatible very important or is it safe to assume that most video cards will work? I?ve never heard of this being an issue before, but a lot has changed since the last time I shopped for a video card ? I?m still using an NVIDIA GeForce 2 card that I bought in 2001. Can someone tell me whether buying from the motherboard manufacturer?s ?compatible list? is a big concern or not? Also, where can I go to get a quick tutorial on what the various features I?m reading about are?
