Hey Intel support
So I have already i7-4700(not k) but my motherboard broke( lga1150)
And I bought i7-8700k with (Lga1151motherboard)
But I was thinking if I return the new Intel and use the old one only need to buy used motherboard ba
Cause there's no in market any more
But I want to run best graphics card in market and its Rtx 2080
So can old Intel run it and if not what is the recommended graphics card should I buy
Please answer me
Ok, you want to get a new motherboard that runs your old processor, correct? And, you want this new board has to run yournew amd graphics card, correct?
First step is to find a board that has socket 1150, and whose BIOS support the i7-4770.
Then, make sure the board supports PCIe x16 3.0
If it helps, I am running a GTX1080 on a 4th gen (https://ark.intel.com/products/77779/Intel-Core-i7-4960X-Processor-Extreme-Edition-15M-Cache-up-to-4... Intel® Core™ i7-4960X Processor Extreme Edition (15M Cache, up to 4.00 GHz) Product Specifications) Intel without problems and have been running the same card in an older system running a Pentium from 2006 (https://ark.intel.com/products/27615/Intel-Pentium-Processor-Extreme-Edition-965-4M-Cache-3-73-GHz-1... Intel® Pentium® Processor Extreme Edition 965 (4M Cache, 3.73 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) Product Specifications )
Just make sure you check all the specifications when searching for / buying a mainboard for the 4th gen i7.
Like Al Hill mentioned make sure the CPU is supported and preferably that the PCI Express slot is 3.0 (It will work on 2.0 / 1.0 but slower).
Both the i7-4700 and the i7-8700K support the PCI Express 3.0, providing the same bandwidth of the PCI Express slot to your video card.
Mostly the memory (DDR3 -> DDR4) and CPU (https://ark.intel.com/compare/75122,126684 Intel® Product Specification Comparison ) will make a difference.
