Theres a graphics card with its requirements....... blah blah pcix16

ok and my motherboard has a pci x16 slot.

Will the graphics card work better with some motherboards (lets say the mobos all support pci x16) than others?

Whats the difference between motherboards (do you they have their own speed)? Does the speed make a big difference?


UPDATE:
Ok i already decided on my CPU its going to be a socket 939 (4200,4400 its all dual core) for gaming, graphics, everyday uses.....

So now im wondering if any one could give me a good bundle of the graphics card and a mobo (motherboard).
Since i do not know which ones work well together and which ones dont.
Thanks!

the budget is the same
$100-150 usd (can stretch a little if i can get a lot better )
mobo well it should fit my cpu $100-$260 (yes my cpu is dual core)

thanks!

If it has a 16x PCIe slot, then they will work the same.

No real short answer on this one, You will have to do some research (Google is your friend) Anyway, In theory yes any Pci-e video card should work on any Pci-e Mobo. However the different chipsets that come with the different M.B.'s make this not so cut and dry, (ie) Nvidia graphics card used on motherboard using Ati chipset is probably not a great idea. When it comes time to narrow down a search for a specific motherboard that is compatible with a specific graphics card then I think the members here can offer you some real insight.

if you mean 7800GT and 7800GS the GT Holds 20 pipelines while the GS has 16, the more piplines the better preformance because pipelines are like roads, and if you have a 20 lane freeway, more people can reach their destination than a 16 lane freeway.

Well, kind of true but not necessarily. The X1900XT has 16 pipes but has 48 vertex shaders and it beats the 7800GTX 512M, in many tests, that has 24 pipes so the pipes aren't the only factor. The memory speed and vertex shaders have a large impact on performance.

Okay Vertex shaders are more like, HOV Lanes but Generally more PP means better preformance.

Lol, so the FX line of nvidia cards would be like driving down a busy LA freeway under construction with a dirty windshield and a flat tire?
