So this is my mobo... It's blue and great. Bought it back in 2009.

My issue is finding a card that can work with it. I don't really know what's compatible with it, just that the mobo specifications say "PCI-Express 2.0 x16". So I search for those specifications in a card with no luck, most being unavailable or out of stock. And the others are older than my current card, which is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102841 (also bought in 2009).

I guess my question is, what sort of cards are compatible with my mobo? What should I be looking for?
No one cared who I was till I put on the mask...

Anything. Literally any pci-e card will work. Don't worry about the specifics. You will be fine.

This. Any modern card you want will work just fine.

Thanks for the replies guys. So even if the card says PCI-E 3.0 that will still work?

Yep. It will run at the PCI-E 2.0 speeds (not that much different), but yes, it will work just fine.

I see... that's kind of unintuitive but I'll roll with it. Thanks!

Make sure your power supply can handle the new card and has the appropriate 6 or 8 pin connectors if needed
