I have a Asus P5B-deluxe / E6600 / sapphire radeon x1950xt 512mb 256bit ,setup that is a few years old. I think my board is pci-e 1.0. It doesn't specify. I'm a light mmo gamer.
1) can I use new pci-e 2.0 cards? if only some, which ones?
if so, from what I've read there will be a data transfer bottleneck between 1.0 and 2.0 rates
2) considering the bottleneck, will a new card perform any better than the x1950xt 512mb?
should i just wait until I get another computer, probably another couple years for me.
