It'll just run at the lower bandwidth. | Report abuse jaguarskx Graphics card Master Motherboard Authority May 4, 2008 10:41:29 PM Current generation GPUs do not take advantage of the extra bandwidth yet. FYI, specs for PCI-e 3.0 was announced last August bumping band width. If you're gonna drop in a new high end GPU in 2 or 3 years, then PCI-E 1.0 might hold you back. | Report abuse rammedstein May 5, 2008 6:58:27 AM it'll do fine, its backwards compatible as previously stated, although, remember, that board can only do crossfire, not sli if you were planning on that as an upgrade route | Report abuse rolllin May 5, 2008 8:41:16 AM thnx for help | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>975X Platinum PowerUp Edition and PCIE 2.0> Related ressources: ForumMSI 975X Platinum PowerUp Edition Problems, please help ForumSecondary IDE port problem on 975X Platinum PowerUp Edition Forummsi 975X Platinum PowerUp Edition ForumMSI 975X Platinum Power-up Edition BSOD with XtremeMusic ForumMSI 975X Platinum PowerUp Edition and 800mhz memory ForumAsus P5B Deluxe Wifi or Msi 975X Platinum Powerup Edition ?
