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:

Yes, it is.

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

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:

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
