Will the Sapphire R9 380 work with the chicago motherboard?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hello,I am about to buy a new graphics card for my older Pavilion and I'm thinking about buying this R9 380 from Sapphire.I've heard that people have had problems with the legacy BIOS of the motherboard in this PC (IPISB-CH2) and I'd like to know if the same problems would occur with this graphics card. I think it has dual bios which (I assume) would make the card compatible with older motherboards. I've made sure every other component works with the card. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!  -Max

Hjalpmovie, welcome to the forum. If you read the Specifications tab in the link that you provided, it states that a power supply unit (PSU) of no less than 500W is required.  The PSU in your computer is only 460W.  I suggest at least 600W to assure that you have enough power for future upgrades. You should also measure the space where the card fits to assure that it will accept a card that is 9.5" (237.35 mm).  It has a hybrid VBIOS that allows it to work with a Legacy or UEFI BIOS.  If it were me, I would contact the manufacturer to assure that it will work before ordering it.  This will save the shipping to return it if it doesn't work for some reason. Please click the "Thumbs up + button" if I have helped you and click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.
