Full system specs:
3800+ AMD Athlon 64 X2; 1GB DDR PC3200; Asus A8AE-LE Motherboard; BFG 6600 GT; 250GB/500GB/150GB Hard drives; Sound Blaster something; 400W PSU
It is an HP A1250n system but I upgraded the ATI graphics card to the BFG 6600GT which made me have to upgrade the power supply.
I just check BFG's website and it says the 6600GT uses PCIe x16 so now I'm thinking I must be ok. I'm trying to get one off ebay so it will suck if it does not work.
Reviewing your pictures at wikipedia, mine definately looks like the larger one, so I am ok, right? (I think NightScope may have been right, the diagram of my motherboard that says 1X is just saying there is only one slot).
How do I find out what mine is 1x 4x 8x or 16x? Asus's website does not even recongize a A8Ae-LE motherboard.
I assume there are performance drawbacks putting a 16x card in a 1x,4x or 8x slot?
Thanks for help.
