Hi all,

I know a lot of ppl ask the other way round, ie does pcie 2.0 cards run on pcie 1.0 but my question is will my 8800gts x16 1.0 run in a 2.0 x16 pcie slot as im getting a new mobo.

I am waiting for dx 11 cards so will be using my old 8800 until the time comes but am upgrading mobo for xmas.

Thanks in advance,

a c 189 U Graphics card

Yes, it will work perfectly...
PCIe x16 2.0 is backward compatible with PCIe x16 1.1 and PCIe x16 1.0...
So don't worry...
