PCI-E question Tags: Motherboards Support Geforce PCI Express Last response: July 9, 2010 12:19 AM in Motherboards Share darkedge July 8, 2010 5:43:30 PM Hi, I have a P5E-VM DO mobo, and I'm just wondering if it can support the Geforce 9800 or GT 240 in the PCI-E slot? More about : pci question Maziar a c 135 V Motherboard July 8, 2010 6:20:09 PM Hello and welcome to the forums Yes it should support either of them without any problem because PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with PCI-E 1.0 darkedge July 8, 2010 7:36:11 PM Thanks, but what's the side effect? will it be slower using PCI-E than PCI-E 2.0? And how slow?
