I was thinking if you think it's possible to install a PCI Express x16 2.0 in a PCI Express X16 slot??
Please help me also pick out the right gaming video card for a good dollar value.. :sarcastic:

  1. Yes, it is.

    It'd be nice if you listed a dollar value if you wanted a good card for that value...

    but are you sure PCI express 2.0 X16 would work on a PCI express X16
  6. Nice card. If you forget to connect the aux power cable the card still fires up and displays a message reminding you to connect it.

    PCI express 2.0 is backward compatible both ways: a 1.0 PCI card will work in a 2.0 slot and a 2.o card will work in a 1.0 slot. Your new card should work fine in your PC.

    p.s. USASUCKS is not a very nice name.

    Thank you for letting me know information about the PCI Express 2.0 X16 video card in a PCI express X16 slot.

    I have another question for you...How much power does a video card use.. (Watts)
    This one says you need a 450 watt power supply , note that I have an 500 watt power supply 85% eff.

    I know my name is not very nice but I am in Asia.... :kaola: Just being goofy :pt1cable:
  8. Nevermind

    Just found out

    Dual-Core CPU = 65 watts

    Motherboard, Intel Chipset /(ASUS P5KPL-CM Motherboard) = 25 - 30

    2 Memory Modules = 6 watts

    1 Hard Drives = 10watts

    Drive + Burner = 20watts

    4 UV LED Cold Light = 20 watts

    video card = max 130 watts

    2 UV LED fans = 20 watts

    ETC = 60 watts


  9. This is an update on the video card that I have gotten from newegg.com
    only spend 70.00 for it.

    HIS Radeon HD 3850 512MB GDDR3 256Bit PCIx16.2.0



    Now I am waiting on my new CPU Dual Core



    but this is my system



    Tell me what you think about it

    ASUS P5KPL-CM MOBO
    Four GB Memory
    Corsair Dominator Cooling Fan
    160GB SATA HD
    500watt ANTEC PSU
    Ixtrema CPU cooler heatsink with LED Fan 120mm
