  1. Usually they do, if your power supply is adequate. Check the specs for the new video card before ordering. If you don't find any specs for the ps, list it here for advice.
  2. In theory it should work - PCIe 2.0 is backwards compatible with the older PCIe. Just like o1die said - double check on the psu requirements and the power connectors required. Some card require 1 x 6-pin while other require 2 x 6 pin (or 8-pin) :lol:

    x)
  3. I have a PCIE 2.0 card in a PCIE 1.0 slot. It works fine. Just to check, which graphics card are you thinking of?
