Compatibility - Mewist2 - 03-18-2012

Hey, sorry I have been posting a few threads as of late, but a friend asked me to suggest a good graphics card for him, this is his motherboard.

And I was looking around, and I thought this might be a good card.

What do you guys think, and are they compatible?

I don't know if they're compatible, but its not gonna do much. Any games he wanted to play specifically?

Not really many high spec games, just Borderlands, Minecraft, League Of Legends and similar games.

Borderlands probably won't work on that, Minecraft, if I'm not mistaken relies much more on CPU, and LoL I'm not sure, but yeah.

According to that, it only got 30 FPS on CS:S, highly regarded as an optimized game. I don't think that GPU will suffice.

Ok, thanks for your help, can you recommend any that are under $100 Canadian?

I can't, I'm not sure what kind of PCI it is. Just says PCI Graphics slot, and a PCI x1. I can't tell if that PCI GRaphics slot means x16 or not. Though it looks like it has a x16 slot from the picture.
