    I sent a mail to asrock support, I guess I'll have to wait a few days to get a response.

    I'm one click away from buying the Sapphire Radeon HD6770 but in the last minute Asrock support responded to my question:

    The Motherboard Asrock G41M-VS3 R2.0 has a 16X PCI-Express slot first generation, and works well with this current generation either be ATI or NVidia, do not install a second generation card because it won't be detected.
    I would like to consider my options as this info seems relevant.
    wazza300 what's your say on this?

    I asked at Tom's Hardware.
    What PCI-Express graphics cards are first generation? - Graphics-Cards - Graphic-Displays

    you might be ok,normally they are backward compatible with 2.0 which your board probably is and that gpu is either a 2.0 or 2.1 card,just make sure you can return/refund the card if it doesnt work but i think you will be fine

    Guys what do you think is the best between ZOTAC ZT-50401-10L GeForce GTX 550 and Sapphire Radeon HD6770?

    Don't mind about the generation stuff, I just watched random videos in youtube of people playing games with the same mobo I have using 2.0/2.1 video cards, the tech support guy probably is just an ignorant who's only reading the specs on paper and not even testing the board itself.

    did you see any videos with your mb and an nvidia card? just to be sure it can run nvidia too? cant really comment on zotac,i only buy sapphire gpu's as they have good build quality,if nvidia you might be better off with a gtx 460? either that or ati 6770
