well i know that theories say that all pci-e versions are backwards compatible but actually i've heard that practically...amd cards face some problems with older pci-e versions......so i want answer from anyone who have actually tested 7700 series card on pci-e 1.1 slot......and yes i've an intel dg41rq moterboard having g41 chipset (pci-e 1.1 *16)

Im using a HD7770 on a 946GZ chipset. You're good to go

The 41rq is a good mobo. I had the same one 3 years ago.. (I downgraded xD) just make sure you update the bios

I've read about the so-called issues with 2.0 and later cards on 1.1 interface but never experienced them myself. And I've had every PCIe version card and MB from 1.0 to 3.0
I've also never known anyone that has had issues they could prove was related to that. It may just be one of those urban legends.

Like the knowledgeable fellow above me said. The issues (if any) seem to be with certain PCI Express 2.0/1 slots. You are good to go.. Myth busted!

You can post that question in the CPU section. Surely a certified person would get back to you on that one

What is your concern with BIOS updating? Motherboard BIOS?

yes .i want to ask about motherboard bios update ...is this required cause i've asked some people running 7750 on g41 chipset without any bios update ..is motherboard bios update really required before/after graphic card upgrade .i've never done it so i'm afraid of doing it .

I never heard of having to do a MB BIOS update for a graphic card to work. And I personally have never had to do one for my boards/cards. What is the make/model of your MB?

I want to say there is no need for a BIOS update to run that card on any MB that has a PCIe X16 slot. But if you've seen differently somewhere, please post it. That's the first I've ever heard of such a thing. Generally, a BIOS update is only required for the processor, not the gfx card.

ok so i won't update the bios then .but from this forum see the 1st forum in the related resources area named as 'does a radeon hd 7750 work with a pci-e 1.1 slot motherboard like digilite dl g41 mx3 ??' or something similar like this .the person who has created that thread has a running hd 7750 and g41 chipset

visit this link-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RooC7IH8ih0

see this person system specs as he has a perfectly running 7750 on g41 chipset


visit a forum via this link -http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1649869/radeon-7...

this person also has the same problem like i have and see the results now ....that he has a running hd 7750 on a g41 chipset (pci-e 1.1 *16 slot)

so i want to know the final verdict from all of you about this so called "pci-e version compatiblity issue with radeon hd 7700 series".should i believe these peoples ? should i buy this card .i don't want to waste money on a graphic card which isn't compatible with my motherboard .

It seems, from my time here on the forums, that that issue has come up quite a bit. The vast majority of times, it ends up being a non-issue. I can't help but wonder if the occasional fail some folks face isn't due to other issues. Bad card, defective MB, etc. Is this HD 7750 a card that you can't return for refund or replacement? Because you could always try it (with a high likelihood of success), and if problems arise send it back. Or even try that MB BIOS update suggestion if you think there is a solution there.

If your talking about this one that doesn't need a power cable: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
...it is getting pretty close to too much. That card requires more power than the HD 7750: http://www.hwcompare.com/13468/geforce-gtx-650-vs-radeo...

64W at max means 4.5A on the +12V rail. What processor do you have? With an unknown-quality PSU with a small +12V rail, I'm hesitant to recommend it. In fact, now that you finally mention some specs of the PSU, it sounds like the HD 7750 would be iffy too.

Quite a difference between the 31W GT 210 and the 64W GTX 650: http://www.hwcompare.com/13535/geforce-gt-210-vs-geforc...

The C2D e7500 is a 65W processor (5.4A at +12V) and isn't too demanding. Added to the 5.3A of the GTX 650, that leaves 14.3A of the +12V rail for the MB, drives, fans, etc. I did a quick guess-timate here: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
...and came up with you needing A 301W quality PSU. I think you'll be pushing it with either card using that PSU. It obviously isn't a true 450W PSU if it only has a single tiny 25A +12V rail. Are you sure it doesn't have a second +12V rail your just not noticing?

If that is your PSU, then you could try it and if your PC shuts down or reboots, that would be an indication that it can't provide the necessary power. You'll have to upgrade it to a quality unit of 400W or better.

does that gpu-z screenshot means the hd 7750 is running on pci-e 1.1*16 slot


That would be my assumption. Considering you said you had a version 1.1 MB, it makes sense.

Oh. Well Stratos85 just verified that it will work for you. What more evidence would you want?

I've purchased an asus amd radeon hd 7750 1 gd5-v2 and its working flawlessly without any compatiblity issues ...and its working on my pci-e 1.1*16 mobo (intel dg41rq) and with my generic and cheap quality psu without any problems.
