All being the later technology will hopefully mean that it all plays nicely together.
Please keep us posted on your progress.
So, done and finished with changing from a GeForce GTX660Ti to the new Asus GeForce GTX970 STRIX model. It wasn't, however not entirely without problems. Good news is, it didn't require a BIOS flashing.
After inserting the new card, I tried powering up, and it got stuck at the BIOS splash screen. I let it run, and it eventually switched to black screen with a blinking underscore cursor. Couldn't at no point, access BIOS from there (just got some short beep's)
Switched to old card, booted up to access BIOS.
Once in BIOS, I changed the following settings;
PEG - Gen X from Auto to Gen 3
PCI ROM Priority from EFI to Legacy ROM
Exit and save
Turned off the computer after it booted with those settings (still old card in)
Removed old card, inserted new card
And it booted to windows (yea !!)
Next problem tho, was that it didn't want to install the new Nvidia driver, from either of downloaded Nvidia or the default from Windows. Turns out, that somehow my onboard graphic had kicked in during all that messing around with the cards. Once I disabled that in BIOS, the downloaded Nvidia driver installed without problems.
So, it turned out fine, altho, if one doesn't have at least a bit of knowledge regarding BIOS and such, I could see this be utter frustration
As a final note, the card just about fit in my case. I had measured it out beforehand, but there isn't much wiggle room tho
Connector is 6+2 pin and all voltages etc. looks good.
Hope someone might able to use this info, when switching from old'ish GPU to a newer one. And thanks for the bit of help from here, since I really was in doubt if a flash BIOS was needed, and it wasn't, so all good
Cheers from Denmark
