Hey all, i think i toasted my older 8800 gts card and want to replace it with a gtx 275. I noticed its PCI-E 2.0. My Mobo is PCI-E 16x. Will the newer card fit physically, and will there be any compatibilty issues?

Thanks in advance for any help!!

As for physical compatibility, yes its the same slot.

On the 2.0 vs. 1.0, someone just posted the same question, the consensus was that it wouldn't affect anything unless you run SLI
