I have an MSI P67A-G45 B3 motherboard.  What are my options for today’s video cards?

    if you use multi monitors and play games on multi monitor choose graphic cards with 4Gb memory

    This motherboard has two 2nd generation full size PCI-Express Ports. The "1x16, 1x8" means that one port is connected using 16 lanes, the second port using 8 lanes. So as far as the motherboard goes any PCIe graphics card will work, even SLI.

    However, keep in mind that this is only a third of the specifications you need to look out or.

    The second important factor would be your power supply. It needs to supply enough power to handle the graphics card and it also requires the necessary power connectors. Most modern cards use up to 200W on their own and require anywhere from 1x6pin up to 1x6pin + 1x8pin power connectors. Adapters are usually included so at last you need 2 free 4pin molex power connectors.

    The final thing to look out for is the length of the card. Basically the smaller your case the higher the chance of a modern card not fitting in. Most cards are between 260-270mm in length.
