    I have an old ASUS P6T Deluxe V2. Will a new RX580 work on these old non UEFI boards?

    sometimes you have to flip the vbios switch on the gpu for it to work

    Thanks for the info. Is there a list of cards that have the switch? I am looking to build a new Ryzen system but will slowly buy the parts and upgrade as I go. I am looking to buy a new RX580 first and use it in my current system.

    It should work, but I had 290 card on that motherboard and boy, that was a nightmare. Some heavy loads were fine (Battlefield 4), but on medium load games like Diablo 3 it crashed frequently. Something to do with the chipsent and PCIe power states / AMD PowerTune.
