Hello my name is Aaron August. Im from Midland, MI. I own and operate a computer recycling business and work part time as a machinist and for other local companies doing various work.

Interest include just about anything and everything ex: Blacksmithing, Computing, Automotive, Philosophy, Pin striping, you name it!

Anyway...

My question is will a MSI AMD Radeon HD R6570 1GB DDR3 128bit memory bus work with my system AMD Athlon II X4 620 Processor 64bit system WIN 7

My problem with the GPU will it be compatible with the 64bit system or am I thinking of something else entirely?

Should work fine, as long as your mother board has a PCI Express 2.1 x16 slot.

You only have a pci express x16. It will work the 1.0, 2.0, 2.1 are just different revisions of the pci-e x16 for example 1.0a to 2.0 doubled the bandwith and 2.1 just added some support infrastructure and all the cards are backwards compatible you may just loose some throughput if the slot is pci-e x16 1.0
