Yes it's downward compatible and performance would be the same since 9400gt isn't anywhere close in utilizing pci-e 1.0's bandwidth (I'm assuming by pci-e 1.0 you mean pci-e 1.0 x16 right?).

ok...

give us more information...

Yes, the 9400 GT will work in your motherboard... and so will ANY card thats pci 1.0 or 2.0 compliant

But really... don't even get a 9400GT, if you have about 150 dollars... get a 4850, if you have 240... get a 4870, if you have 70 bucks... get a 4670

all of those absolutely blow that card out of the water... a 7600 gt (2 generations back) would probably beat the sh*t out of that card

if it's an HTPC, definitely go for the 4670

I recommend the 4850 though, great card at a great price... currently takes the crown for price/performance ratio

I saw 9400gt free somewhere after rebate (that might be why he's getting it?). But like the above poster said, there's a lot of better choices for video cards then 9400gt.

whats wrong with this card it supports shader4.0 and directx 10, it has 512 mb ddr3 memory and its cheap
and i just want it for games
would it be weak for games?
also the 7600gt support shader 3 only
what about the geforce 8400 or 8500 are they better?

Around $60 bucks (price of a 9400GT), You should really consider a HD4670 instead of the 9400GT (assuming 4670 has better performance).

I couldn't find any benchmarks on these two cards so I can't make a conclusion.

Don't bother with the 8400 or the 8500. They're outdated and their performance is terrible.

You get what you pay for. Enough said.

The 7600GT should be faster than the 9400GT in games. Get an HD4670.

The 9400gt is probably not going to be good for games. I agree with the call on the 4670 if you just want cheap get that, I think you'll be a lot happier.
