  1. Yep. PCIe x16 1.0 and 2.0 are backward compatible. A 5770 wont need more bandwidth than 1.0 supplies. As long as you have a power connector for the card (and a 450w+ PSU) you will be fine upgrading.
  2. Should be. Only a few early PCI-E 1.0 motherboards are not compatible with PCI-E 2.0 cards, but that's because they didn't strictly comply to PCI-E 1.0/1.1 in the first place.
  3. Anyway, should work :bounce:
  4. thanks guys, makes it much easier.
  5. Yeah you should be fine. Just make sure your PSU is up to par for the 5770. It doesn't' take much power, but a lower wattage or oem PSU's usually don't deliver enough juice.

    The 5770 is a good mainstream card. They overclock well to if you want to try your hand at it. ATI cards are by far the easiest to OC with the ATI Overdrive tool.
