I have an R1 X51, whats the most powerfull Graphix card I can put in my system? or can anyone recommend a better card inline with todays cards, I've currently got a GTX555
Would people recommend upgrading to the R2 powerboard first, before getting a better card?
my system specs are i7 - 3770 cpu 3.40GHz 8GB RAM. 64 bit, any help appreciated.

I have also heard that an R2 board upgrade is required but I have also seen others posting that they put 9** series in without upgrading. You should be pretty safe to try a 7** series card in there. I was going to try the 750. It will be a good (and cheap) upgrade from the 555 which is a pretty crappy card really. I just don't use my R1 enough at the moment so I never bothered.
