  1. Just for clarification i got a PCIe x16 1.0 slot

  2. It's backwards compatible, so it will certainly work in the 1.0 slot. How much of a bottleneck the 1.0 slot will be on the card is more difficult to answer, as it will depend on the strength of the graphics card.

  4. Best answer
    There would likely be some loss of performance, but not much. Have a look at this link. Using a much more powerful card (a GTX 680), the loss of performance in a x16 1.1 slot compared to a x16 3.0 slot is only about 4-5% at 1080p. With your weaker card, the loss in performance would be even less, so you're good to go.

  5. Just make sure you have the latest BIOS also.

  7. What abt a 650 ti ? Can it bottleneck ?
    Reply to Slick2sick
  8. A 650 ti is a little bit slower than a 750 ti, so the bottleneck would be very similar. Really, the bottleneck you'll experience from the PCI-e slot is pretty minor in the grand scheme of things; I wouldn't worry about it too much.
