    Video Card Series ...

    for PCI Express 2.0 x16

    My current motherboard supports PCI Express 2.0 x16.

    If I buy a new video card 1050 TI PCI Express 3.0 x16, would that be a waste of money since my current motherboard cannot get the maximum benefit from the video card? If yes, then which video card series should I get? How about the 730 series: https://www.frys.com/product/8879232

    I am getting a new video card because I will be getting a 4K monitor.

    Also, the higher the refresh rate and frame rate is the better right?
    Originally wanted Millenium Falcon as nick but there is character limitation.
    Falcon Speed = Millenium Falcon = Light Speed

    Are you planning on running games on the 4k monitor? If yes, then you really need something like a 1080 GTX.

    higher = better

    I play games but not that much. But would the 1080 gtx work on my current motherboard supports PCI Express 2.0 x16?

    are you referring to refresh rate and frame rate?

    Both.


    The 1080 GTX would work, but your current motherboard might tend to slow it down some.
