I am ordering a GPU.

What compatibility issues would I have to look out for when buying one?

main thing is make sure your current power supply is good enough for the new card and has the connectors you need.

make sure it will fit in your case

If your power supply can support it. If the GPU asks for PCI 3.0, which I believe you can still use a 3.0 GPU in a PCI 2.0 slot, the GPU just won't run at it's full potential. Make sure your case has room.

From memory PCIE 3.0 has no benefit over 2.0 at this stage, that might change in the future however.
Is this even legal? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fxhiq93TTg
