I am currently looking to upgrade my gpu and i've decided i really want the 5770. But I'm using a gigabyte p35-ds3l mother board so i want to know if its compatible with the pci-e 2.0 gpu since the mobo is pci-e 1.0.
PSU: 550w OCZ Fatal1ty
motherboard: gigabyte p35-ds3l
CPU: intel core 2 duo e6750 2.7 stock clock speed
gpu: xfx 8800 gts 320mb
ram: 4x1 gig dual channel ddr2
1 500 gig hard drive and a disk drive.
I am planning on upgrading my mobo, cpu, and ram in the future, but probably not until xmas 2010, so will the 5770 be compatible with my motherboard?

More aboutupgrade please hd5770
Well PCIe 2.0 is fully backwards compatible to PCIe 1.0 so yes it will work (you may have a little reduced performance though)
I'm not too worried in the performance decrease since i'll be upgrading the mobo cpu and ram in the future anyways. i just want to upgrade my gpu first because thats wat i need most
