Ask ! Get the answer tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard December 1, 2010 11:34:19 PM Yes... GPU's are backwards compatable with PCIe slots so a 2.1 will work on a 1.0. m 0 l HostileDonut a b V Motherboard December 1, 2010 11:36:06 PM Will it make any performance difference? What are the differences? Will it effect OCing? m 0 l tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard December 1, 2010 11:42:45 PM You will maybe see one or two frame per second drop but nothing major. It won't effect the OCing of the GPU. m 0 l HostileDonut a b V Motherboard December 1, 2010 11:44:36 PM So I am safe with installing a HD6850, right? m 0 l tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard December 1, 2010 11:55:14 PM Yes... You are safe with installing the 6850. m 0 l HostileDonut a b V Motherboard December 1, 2010 11:56:24 PM Thanks for the help. m 0 l tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard December 1, 2010 11:57:38 PM Not a problem... Glad I could help. m 0 l HostileDonut a b V Motherboard December 2, 2010 12:45:30 AM I have one more question. I know I said I wanted a hd6850, but I did some research and it said PCI-E 1.0 was good for older cards. I know the hd6850 will fit, but because it is a pretty fast card, will it be hindered? m 0 l tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard December 2, 2010 12:57:05 AM No... You may see a few FPS drops but nothing of a hinderage to the card. It will not saturate the bandwidth to the point of causing major performance issues. Yes, ideally you would want to have it running on a PCIe 2.0 x16 but in the end the difference isn't really enough to purchase a new board... IMO m 0 l HostileDonut a b V Motherboard December 2, 2010 1:13:09 AM When you say small you mean like five or less fps? because there is a small hindrance already, I cannot OC it any higher, right? m 0 l tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard December 2, 2010 1:18:50 AM 1) Yes... you might be looking at 5 FPS or less. 2) It will not effect your overclocking of the GPU. You will be fine OCing it, if you feel it necessary. m 0 l HostileDonut a b V Motherboard December 2, 2010 1:26:17 AM So bye OCing it I can make up for the 1-5 FPS loss, right? I am sorry for all the questions, just I do not know much about this. m 0 l tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard December 2, 2010 5:58:01 AM Compared to stock speed on a PCIe x16 1.0, yes that will help decrease the "lost" FPS. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
