Hello everyone ,
So I thought about buying an RTX 2080 and my motherboard is supporting max PCI -E 3.0 x8 .
The graphics card ports are PCI -E x16 .
Do I need to buy a new motherboard ?
If the answer is yes , can you please recommend about a good one ?
(BTW the model of the graphics card I want is : GeForce RTX™ 2080 WINDFORCE 8G)




thanks allot I appreciate any answer.
 
my cpu is i8 8700k and I don't remember what is my motherboard name but I do remember that it is support max 8pins graphics card
(If it is important for the discussion I will find the name ) .
I think you are misreading something. I think your motherboard will run at 16x with PCIe 3.0. I dont know a board that supports a 8700k that does not run the GPU at x16 without having multiple NVMe drives installed. Your system is fine.

It will work fine.

What motherboard and CPU do you have? If you have an old platform, you will be wasting money on a highend GPU like the 2080.

thanks you for answering , but it isn't what I men't ,
my question is if the grhapics card will work on an a motherboard that supports max PCI -E x8 when the card is PCI -E x16.
No problem

And I wasn't clear enough, yes it will work but at technically reduced bandwidth
