It is compatible the graphics card Nvidia GTS 250 1gb DDR3 PCIEx 2.0 with my motherboard Asus M2N68AM PLUS wich has PCIEx x16?Many people that I asked said that GTS250 is compatible with both PCI Express 2.0 and x16(1.1).

Thanks!I have a cheap 450w PSU(Antler).I hope it will manage the new card,that consumes 150w max.With the integrated video card the system consume 94w at idle and 130-170w peak.I know it"s a cheap PSU but it has over voltage,over power and short-circuit protection,so if it can"t manage the new card i think will not burn any hardware in my computer.Thanks again for your help,I will post after install and testing.

you should upgrade your PSU. Really, A friend of mine burned his GTS 250 by using ''Xtech 500w PSU''.

here are some cheap ones:

or this 500W version http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you don't like Antec, here's a Thermaltake one:

Today i"ve installed a new PSU600w,for the moment I notice a good improvment in noise.This PSU is really silent,now I can"t hear any noise from my case.I ordered the video card and I will have it thursday.Cant"t wait...

Hi everyone!I"ve installed the new card but i can"t play until wednesday when my new PSU comes.I"ve returned the 600W PSU because only had 18A in a single 12V rail.Now I"m waiting for these one:

http://www.tacens.com/riv500.php it costs 50€.

For moment I have a cheap 450W PSU 12V1-14A,12V2-16A.I"m not gonna use games or 3D aplications with this PSU because it"s weak.In idle the whole system with monitor consumes now 135-140w and with 60-70% CPU load 170w.I think the cheap PSU will handle until wednesday(internet,mp3,videos Xvid).With Hd videos consumption reaches 188w.

After almost a month of testings,everything is ok.I can play almost every new 2010 game at high settings at 1920/1080 resolution.So the video card is backward compatible with PCIE x16 1.0 motherboard.
