I have a MSI k9n4 SLI mobo, and i was wondering if it is compatible with the GTX 260. I have heard the PCI 2.0 backwards compatibility with the 1.0 is a hit or miss thing. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to full specs:

Welcome to the forums!

You can use that card. Make sure your power supply is big enough for that card.

Minimum Power Supply Requirement: 500 Watt.

Please post your hardware specs, so we can see if the system is in balance.

Well my full specs are:
AMD X2 5400+ OC'D to 3.0 ghz
3gigs RAM
500W PSU

So my power supply meets the minimum, but is it a good idea to upgrade to one with a higher wattage?
