    So I am looking at getting a new motherboard for my rig, I am currently looking at the ASUS ROG STRIX B360-H GAMING LGA1151 (300 Series) DDR4 HDMI DVI M.2 ATX Motherboard. and the specs say it is prepped for AMD graphics cards while the chipset is intel along with it being compatible with an intel CPU, so my question is is there any difference between AMD and GTX Graphics cards when it comes to the PCI's? I currently have a GTX 1060 and am not looking forward to buying a new GPU

    Your GTX 1060 will still work in that motherboard. The AMD thing is for using 2 graphics cards in crossfire.

    Nope.

    Go to the following to find out.

    A good price to performance graphics card at this time is nVidia GeForce RTX 2060. If the computer you have now contains i7-6700K, that is plenty for gaming. If you are itching for better performance in games, buy a better graphics card.
