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. megamanx00 a c 105 U Graphics card March 17, 2010 7:10:00 PM 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.

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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
