Hi, I'm doing a big upgrade in setup and my video card is about to come, but I didn't buy the other's hardware already, so the main question when the video card comes in, can I use it in my old motherboard? Until the rest of the setup comes.
The video card is a : ASRock Phantom Gaming D RX 570 OC 8 GB

And the motherboard is a H61M2-H12, nowadays I'm using a RX 550 (the BIOS of the motherboard is not original, I had to change it to make the graphics work)

The motherboard has a x8 PCI, but the video card says that his Bus Interface is a 3.0 x16.

I just wanna know if it's gonna work or i have to wait for the rest o the setup comes.

Since you got the RX 550 to work, the RX 570 should work as well, as long as your PSU has enough capacity for it.
