    Default Video Card compatible with EP35-DS3L?

    I just bought a ASUS EAH4870 DK/HTDI/1GD5 Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card.

    my MOBO is Gigabyte EP35-DS3L.

    i heard this mobo cannot take advantage of PCIE 2.0 x 16 HDCP.

    should I return the Video card? it's $140.
    new to forum, please help!

    It should be fine, PCIE x16 and or PCEI x16 2.0 cards cannot even fill the x16 bus's available bandwidth so either would not take full advantage of the slots on any board.

    That will run just fine on that board, as good as it would really on any 2.0 board. A 2.0 board may be a little better due to design but not too much.

    I'd keep the card, you can (And likely will) get a better board sometime anyway that will be PCIE 2.0
