will i be able to use a gigabyte oc card with an asus motherboard, or will i have to get another one

Go to solution Solved by berberries,

Brand of GPU and brand of motherboard has no correlation whatsoever, other than less pain in the ass with RGB software if it is all the same brand. So in short, no you don't need a new motherboard

You can pretty much use any brand with any other brand.  Am I misunderstanding?

the title pretty much explains it


Yes you can use the Gigabyte card on the Asus board. Regardless of the brand of the card, they're all the same chips made by AMD or Nvidia connected to the board through a PCIe interface. 

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.
