More about : compatibility issue board video card Best solution user 18 June 13, 2010 4:26:15 AM Share This topic here says that all PCIe 2.0 cards will be backwards-compatible with PCIe 1.0, and specifically mentions the 8800gt: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/245980-33-geforce-880... This one mentions the 9600gt: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/250241-33-9600gt This one mentions the 8800gt and the 9800gt: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/273631-33-8600gts-980... Should be perfectly fine even with a newer card than those. wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card June 13, 2010 5:10:23 PM You should be fine with that card (2.0) running on 1.0 slot. Since your motherboard has 1.0 slot then do not get 2.1 cards, many issue with 2.1 cards running on 1.0 slot.
