    Video card upgrade

    Hi there,
    I'm looking to replace my aging video card whit a not so recent one.
    The main thing i'm looking to know is for a video card compatible whit AMD Overdrive program that come whit my Sabertooth 990fx mobo.
    I have been looking in many spec on AMD, ASUS, google and diverse forum and have found no reference to card supporting this tool.

    My current spec are :
    Asus Sabertooth 1st gen 990fx
    AMD 8300-fx 8 core
    8 gi RAM corsair (1866mhz ) don't remember the full name.
    Asus 560 ti Geforce
    Revodrive 350 PCIe 240 GB.

    I know the Mobo is PCIe 16x 2.0 so I would be looking for card in the next 2 generation. The program I use don't really push the 560ti.

    Any advice

    You'd probably want a 1050/1050ti/1060. Or if you need a space heater, a Vega 56/64

    Why not use something like msi afterburner to o/c your vid card?

    Get Radeon RX 560 or RX 580 if you have no budget issues.

    AMD Overdrive has nothing to do with gpu o/c'ing; it is a CPU o/c'ing tool for AMD processors.
