PCI Express

Does my video card sacrifices performance if I use the old PCI Express x16?
If it does how much performance do I lose?

  1. If you are meaning 1.0 then not much. It is just the most powerful cards like GTX295 and HD5970 that would get affected.
  2. Yes, PCI-E 1.0 x16.
    I'm planning to upgrade from EVGA 9800 GT Superclocked to MSI Radeon HD 5770.
    My power supply is this: http://www.centralcomputers.com/commerce/catalog/product.jsp?product_id=63752&czuid=1263083410531

    Would I be able to play 5770 card to its optimal performance with my current system?
  3. That card will run fine with PCIe 1.0 spec.

    The less powerful cards won't be affected, but the higher ones will
