I’m thinking of buying an RTX 3070. Will it be compatible and run smoothly with my
old MSI X79A GD45 8D motherboard?
pcpartpicker.com shows even RTX 3090 to be compatible with such an old
motherboard. Just wanted to make sure before purchasing.
My apologies if posting in the wrong section but couldn’t find more appropriate one.

Provided, that the PSU of your PC delivers enough power for your desired add-on GeForce RTX 3070 Graphics card, I don’t see any compatibility problem.
Another question is, whether your old mainboard is able to handle the new graphics card the same way as a modern mainboard.
