Hello. I have an amd athlon x2 4400: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E168...

That processor is in my currrent computer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01...〈=en



And this is the new graphics card that i want to buy and put in that hp pavillion: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My first initial thought is that it was going to not fit in the pcie x16 1.0, because the ram was right behind it and i was afraid that it would bump into the ram slots.

Scrolll down half way on that page and you will see a diagram of my motherboard that i want to put tthe 5750 inside.

But then i asked on vista forums and they said that i wouldnt have a problem, and i asked my uncle (IT pro) and he said that i wouldnt have a problem.



But now, another thought which holds my mind back, is my processor ok to run with the hd radeon 5750, and there is also a heatsink right behind the pcieX16, do you think that it will bump into the graphics card, making it not fit into the pcie slot??

Thanks for your thoughts, Kelvin.

Oh and is pcie 2.1 backwards compatible with pcie 1.0? <<- doesnt really relate to the issue but i couldnt find the answer in google.

you can get the graphics card... there's no problem to put the same in x16 slot... it'll fit... the cpu seems ok... and pcie 2.0 cards are compatible with pcie 1.0

Actually, there are instances where advanced PCI-Express v2.0 cards will not work with PCI-Express v1.0 slots. PCIe v1.0 became v1.1 very quickly and while the card will fit and will "work", any gaming done with it will run the risk of artifacts on the screen. It appears that your system isn't old enough to actually have PCIe v1.0 instead of v1.1 so you should be good there. The big question is "What is the wattage of your power supply?" You're going to need one that has an output of at least 450W. That old 250-300W that HP puts in their brand-in-a-box desktops just won't cut it. That motherboard looks like a micro-ATX so with any luck, your case will take a standard ATX power supply. If you have a slimline, you're screwed.

Yeah, i recently installed a 500w antec earthwatts 22@ 12v1 and 22@ 12v2, so i should be find as it has 2 12v rails. No i dont have a slimline, its a medium tower: http://static.www.odcdn.com/pictures/us/od/sk/lg/558565...
