Ok this is my first post here so go easy....I have an asus A8N32-SLI DELUXE Motherboard running win 7 64, 4 gigs of ram, I was running 2 7600 gt bfi cards and wanted to upgrade to a single 6670 card,. the question I have is the 6670 is a pcie 2.1 will it run in this motherboard ? The card requires a 400 watt power supply I have a diabloteck 680 so i should be good there.

What cpu do you have....if I were you I would be wondering if the CPU is going to create a bottleneck and the new video card will be loafing while waiting for the wire-fames to be worked on that are coming from the CPU. You may be better off saving your money for a new build.

That's a Socket 939 board, an 8800GT was bottlenecked by it.

So it's time for a new computer.
