Now im building a new computer finaly and i'm going to order parts.

i found a motherboard (Gigabyte GA-MA785GM)(link - http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=3156)
Now the problem is that it has Integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics (DirectX10.1).Does that mean that i can't use my own new GPU?i want to buy 1gb ddr3 HD 4670.



One question more.Can PCI-Exp 2.0 video cards compile at PCI-Exp 1.0?



Thank you a lot for your time and answers!


 
You can use a pci-e 1.0 or 2.0 card in the pci-e 2.0 slot. Most boards will disable the onboard video when you install a separate pci-e video card, so you can use yours or try the onboard video if you can't afford the 4670 right away. Check newegg for combo specials is you still need a cpu.

u can use it and maybe even crossfire your 4670 with the 4200. and yes if u have a 1.0 card it will cut back from 2.0 to 1.0
