  1. I think youre asking if a PCI2 can fit into a PCI 1? Yes it can, no problems
  2. so lets say a EVGA 8800 GTS PCI Express x16 2.0 card can fit in a regular PCI Express x16 slot and still work eventhough it's huge and will take one PCI slot too?
  3. DAM it I could of bought a 8800 instead of a 8600GT!
  4. physically the slot is the same. the difference lies in bandwith, 2.0 has more.
  5. Although 16x still isnt fully utilized, so its a moot thing to worry about.
  6. then return it and get something better. like the 8800 you mentioned
  7. agreed, i would to, 8600 isnt even half the card a 8800gt is.
  8. it's too late for that...
