Decent gaming video card for Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Rev 1 motherboard
Posted on 2014-11-07
I have a home-built system with a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Rev 1 that I use for business tasks.
I currently have a basic, inexpensive dual monitor video card. I am interested in trying Battlefield 4, so I'm thinking I'll need a better video card.
I'd like something that is quiet, and I don't need super high end--just something that won't get bogged down by a game.
My monitors are NEC MultiSync EA243WM 1920 x 1200.
The Gigabyte specs say the board has one PCI Express x16 port "running at X16" and another at X8.
I browsed NewEgg, but I don't know the difference between PCI Express 2.0, 2.1, and 3.0, and whether that affects compatibility with the Gigabyte board.
Any suggestions on a gaming video card?
