Default Making sure this will work.

Ok so i posted a thread a little while ago about a buildi was planning on doing and got some feedback.

Computer took a dump. so probably gonna get a new one.

At this point i'm still planning on going with that build but right now money is kinda tight. So what I plan on doing is ordering the motherboard, processor, power supply and ram and putting in my old video card and harddrive and such until i can afford a new one. My question is if my old x850xt will work on the msi platinum. i'm pretty sure it will since theyre both pci express correct? thanks

If they're both pci-e, then it should work.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
