Is it due to my PCI-E?

Hi Guys,

My Pc Specs are:

Intel Pentium 4 630
2048 MB DDR2 RAM
Intel(R) G31 Chipset
Samsung 2233SW
Seagate 250GB SATA 7200.12

My problem is i:
I borrow my cousins"Sparkle 8400 GS 512MB DDR2" for testing my games,When i checked it with gpu-z,It is showing memory speed of 300MHz,But it is showing 400MHz in cousind pc,he has an intel g31 mobo,Is it due to my pci-e (as it is pci-e 1.1)that it is detecting as 300MHz,I read in the net that g31chipsets has pci-e 1.1 But both of us have same chipset motherboard then y is it like that.....

Please help me guys!

  1. It is not because of your PCI-e.
  2. So it will will not slow down the gfx card!

    I'm guessing the cards idling lower because either:
    There's less background tasks on your PC
    Your drivers are newer
  4. Both of us are using same drivers,Dont know abt the version.Did the gfx card detects as slower speeds as i have a pcie-e 1.1
