Will a GTX 660 Graphics card work with a second generation intel processor (i5 2


Dec 24, 2012
Upgrading my system and I have an i5 2400 processor that I bought not long ago but never got to use. So getting everything new except the processor. Questions I need answered are:

1. The motherboard I'm getting is a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H, and from what I've looked up, it supports 3rd generation intel processors but also will fit a 2nd generation intel processor. Is this correct?

2. If the answer to question one is yes, will the 2nd generation i5 processor be compatible with a GTX 660 video card?

Any suggestions would be appreciated
