Quick question

I was looking at a graphics card from nvidia. and notice that it was a different pci-e slot

it is a 8400 gs pci-e x 1..

the question is.. "is there any difference between the 8400 gs pci-e x1 and 8400 gs pci-e x16?"..

also if any of you have an 8400 gs graphics card from nvidia.. tell me what kind of games.. i can play on it =D .. :D 

when i say difference between the pci- e x1 and x16.. im asking about the speed. or stuff like that

More about : quick question

would putting a pci e x1 in a pci e x16 make a difference?

it just wouldn't use all of the available slot physically and it wouldn't communicate as fast with the motherboard.. you likely would get degraded performance in comparison to the x16 counterpart.. but it wouldn't hurt anything to run a 1x card in a x16 slot..

you wouldnt be able to play the games as well on a 1x card

No, it will run fine. Because the GeForce 8400GS is one of the slowest current generation video cards out there. It will not bottleneck the PCI-E x1 slot. At all.

Basically it will allow you to play the latest PC games.... On the lowest settings and lower than 1024x768.
