|The limit is your motherboard, they will work together but there is a limit to how much information can flow between them due to the older PCIe 16x capability. All you can do is try it, though if you get jumpy or pauses then use lower settings on the game. Another card, even a faster one would not make much difference due to your slot's capability. You will still have much better graphics than the onboard graphics or an older lesser card, so it should be worth the try. Think of it this way, if you connect a fire hose to a garden hose spigot on your house you could not expect to be able to fight a fire since the pipes feeding the connection outside of your house is either 1/2" or maybe 3/4" on the inside whereas the pipe feeding the fire hydrant is 3 or 4 times as large carrying 10 times the water. The only really significant step beyond upgrading to that card, would be building or buying a gaming specific machine with more modern hardware.|
