I'm not sure if I'm on the right Stack Exchange site but I figured I'd try here. I'm fairly new to PC building so I need a bit of help.

The graphics card in my PCI is a GeForce GTX 760 which has a PCI Express 3.0 connection.

I want to upgrade to a AMD Radeon RX 580 GTX XXX Edition which has a PCI-E connection.

From what I've read these connections are the same so it should fit, but I want to be certain before making my purchase.

  • What do you mean by “Interchangable?” Like feature-wise the same or physically swappable? – JakeGould Jun 11 '18 at 22:57
  • yes, it will work – gamer0 Jun 11 '18 at 23:05
  • Yes, PCI-E is PCI Express. The plug is the same. They are different cards so you will need to uninstall the drivers for one and install drivers for the other, but that's pretty normal when changing hardware. – music2myear Jun 11 '18 at 23:12
