PCI-E x16 and PCI-E x16 2.1 Need help
Jun 14, 2010, 7:24 PM
Im buying a video card
XFX HD-585X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
I have a ASUS Striker Extreme that has PCI-E x16 slots
Will this card be backwards compatible with my Striker extreme and if so am I going to notice or have alot of performance lost due to it?
PS:Sorry if I posted in the wrong area, didn't know if I should put it in Motherboards or Graphic Cards forum.

PCI-E 2.0/2.1 is backward compatible with 1.0,so it will work fine(and the performance difference isn't noticeable)
