^ Yes, One PCI Express x16 = version 1.0a

so clearly it will not support graphic cards with 2.0 or 2.1 buses.

^ I know the AMD 580x chipset won't work, but everything I know says it will with a 10%-15% loss of performance.

However, I hope you have a PSU with 500W-600W of power.

well MY PSU I think have just 300W-400W of power
How do we get to knw about how much power does our PSU supplies

^Failure more than likely, and almost guaranteed with a 300W.
