PCI-E question

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?

  1. 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
  2. Thanks, but what's the side effect? will it be slower using PCI-E than PCI-E 2.0? And how slow?
  3. Its slower, but its not anything noticeable in games(unless on extremely high resolutions like 2560x1600 with AA/AF enabled)
  4. The real world difference with either of those cards will be pretty small as far as PCI-E 1.x vs 2.0 goes.
  5. Thanks for the answers, I'll wait for a sale before I buy the gpu.
