New motherboard + network card compability

Hello fellow nerds

I just got a new motherboard and I am uncertain if the network card, this one, if it will fit in the slot, see attached image.

Your link doesn't work. You don't need to post pictures or anything like that. The network card will have a certain slot type, like PCI, PCI-Express, etc. Your motherboard will have a list of available ports. You can find this in your manual or just by looking at the motherboard closely (your screenshot isn't clear and much is covered). Match them up, and you are good to go.

Aside from all of that, your new motherboard should have a network card built-in.

It looks like you have a Multi Gpu Board If you have a Pci express network card then you are good to go

Or just do w hat Deacon Frost said and match slots it appears your best bet is to go with a PCI express net card I didn't see a PCI slot which most likley will be in white and you will also see that compared to a pci express slot there is no lock clip

Other then that you can always go USB
