PCI-E 2.0 and Radeon 4870 in a Asus P5B Tags: Radeon Asus PCI Express Graphics Product Last response: November 9, 2009 11:20 AM in Graphics & Displays Share moltar512 November 9, 2009 3:58:42 AM I just ordered this: XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but i just noticed it says "PCI Express 2.0", which probably isn't included on my P5B Deluxe Asus mother board, which i bought 3 years ago... Wikipedia says they are backwards compatible, but who knows if that is true I just ordered tonight and it's not too late to change my mind... will this card work with my Asus P5B Deluxe PCI-e x16 card slot? Thanks More about : pci radeon 4870 asus p5b brockh November 9, 2009 4:33:17 AM It's fine, don't worry about it. m 0 l pepperman November 9, 2009 4:38:39 AM The card will work just fine; PCI-E is indeed backwards compatible, so you don't need to worry. Make sure you uninstall the drivers from your current graphics card before installing the new one and you'll be fine. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
