Would a R9 290X run on a Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 board?

Hey all!!! I'm wondering would a R9 290X run with a Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 board? I have a decent 750W power supply. I'm just worried about compatibility issues. Thanks in advance!

    It should be compatible as long you have a working pcie x16 slot.
  2. Ofcourse.
  3. ah great, I recently bought an XFX R9 290 but for some reason it was throwing up all kinds of errors. I sent it back to the retailer and they tested it, they claim it works fine and it was my motherboard that wasn't compatible.
  4. Maybe you didn't install drivers correctly?
  5. Possibly, at the time I didn't have a second graphics card to test. I'm currently loaning a friends old hd 6770 and it works great. I'll make sure I have drivers installed before I buy a new card.

    Thank you so much for your help, I'm not too sure about pci 2.0 and 3.0 haha I'll have to browse the forums to get clued up.
  6. Pcie 2.0 and 3.0 does not make a large difference in performance for a single gpu.
