    Graphic Card

    Is the only requirement for a graphic card is to be compatible with my motherboard? Meaning it has to have the same slot?

    As long as the motherboard has PCI-E you're sweet.

    He won't get the full potential if he's running triple/quad sli/crossfire. Otherwise there's no difference.

    You also have to make sure your PSU has enough wattage and amperage on the +12v of your PSU.

    And that it will fit in your case.

    And that the other components (CPU mainly) won't bottleneck your graphics card.
