I have a G41t-ad motherboard with a pentium dual core processor. It has a 1 x PCI Express x16 slot. But for the graphics card it says it needs 3.0 slot. I read on other threads that it is backwards compatible but I wanted to confirm anyways since this is an old processor and motherboard.
Also I will be upgrading my power supply to : Corsair VS550 550 Watt PSU. Is that ok for this graphics card?
Thanks

Normally pci-e gpu's have no problem with older revisions of pci-e slots so it should work and i can say that it normally work as i am useing a hd 6450 (pci-e 2.1) in a 1.0 slot on my older server and it works just fine so i would say yes there should be no problems. Btw the psu should be just fine unless you have some sort off crazy powerhungry cpu or a giant array off hard drives

It is fully backwards compatible and there have been no issues with ver 3.0 cards in ver 1.x slots.

Thanks. What about installation? Can I do it myself or should I call an engineer to do this? I understand how to put it in the socket but I am worried about not connecting it properly to powersupply as I see so many wires/

wel just look up a pci-e six pin power connector on the internet and you will see how it looks btw don't worry about plugging it in worng as there is only one way it can go in and there are no other connectors that look the same btw you can just look up on youtube something like how to install a videocard or graphics crad or something like that so don't waste your money and time on an engineer. Also useually there is a cable in th box that has a molex (old power connector for backwards commpatibility off hdd's and stuff) to a six pin connector so you can just look and find a similar connector like that one and plug it in (don't use that cable deliverd with the gpu as that is not always a good idea.
