  • Old Gigabyte P55-UD2 with a new GTX 960?

    I have a system with the following specs:

    Gigabyte P55-UD2 mATX mobo
    Intel i7 860
    32GB crucial ram
    Nvidia 560 ti GPU

    I recently bought an EVGA GTX 960 4GB SC on sale so I could use this as a 4k playback machine. Upon installing the graphics card the system boots EXTREMELY slowly (either into my current win7 install or a fresh linux boot disk) and CPU useage sits idle anywhere from 30% to 50% (it constantly spikes)

    I tried everything from:
    Fresh install
    Driver cleaner + latest drivers
    Safe mode
    Clean Linux boot
    Updating board to latest bios

    Is there a hardware compatibility between my legacy bios board (non UEFI) and these newer video cards?
