Hi all,
will a hd 4670 pci 2.0 x 16 video card work in a pcie x 16 motherboard.
The computer in question is a HP a6113w with a leonite mobo.
Upgrading my new build and want to put the 4670 in my girlfriends puter.

Yes, all PCI-E 2.0 cards will work in PCI-E 1.0 slots and vice versa. The primary difference between the two is that PCI-E 2.0 has twice the max bandwidth of PCI-E 1.0 but unless you are using a high end card, like a 5850 or above you wont come anywhere near the bandwidth limits for PCI-E 1.0
