Hey guys.

I want to buy a graphics card.. The following to be exact. Gigabyte GTX460 768mb DDR5.

I was just wondering, will it work on my P5KPL-CM mother board? It has a x16 PCI slot and this card is a 2.0. So will it work?

Few more questions.
1) Before I open my PC, I just want to know, does the motherboard use sata cables or ide?
2) Does anyone know of a good LCD 19" monitor that can display 3d?
3) Will an Intel Core i5 750 2.66 GHz Processor Socket 1156, work on my MOBO?

I am new to THIS.. :(

Thanks.

The video card you want to buy is PCIe-16 2.0, correct. However, your motherboard is only PCIe-x16 1.1. Apparently a 2.0 video card will be compatible with a 1.1 motherboard, so it should work.

1) According to the ASUS website, you have 4xSATA connectors, 1xIDE, and 1xFloppy drive connector.
2) No idea about 3-D 19inch monitors.
3) No, your motherboard will not support an Intel Core i5 750 2.66 GHz Processor Socket 1156. This processor uses an LGA 1156 CPU socket, your motherboard has an LGA 775 socket.

Always remember, google is your friend.
