Would like to run a PCI E 2.0 Card on a 1.0 slot

I have an XFX nforce 630i motherboard (PCI-E 1.0 slot) and I would like to run a Geforce 260 Core 216 graphics card (2.0) on it.

Can I run it on my motherboard?

  1. Thanks for the reply.

    dont you think that the GTX 260 will perform much better than a HD 5770.

    I want to run all the games on my PC, please suggest me the best graphic card in the price range of GTX 260
  2. ok I checked it out on google. it actually costs less but can i install it on my 630i motherboard and which is the power supply that you suggest for this.
  3. but my 550W power supply is a normal one. should I get a cooler master or something else?

    and can i run all the games on it

    My system specifications are:

    Pentium D 2.8 GHz
    3GB DDR2 RAM
    XFX nforce 630i motherboard
    500 GB SATA HD
    HD 5770 (after I upgrade it)
  4. No I dont. suggest me one please......

    You did not answer my main question Timop. Can I run all the games with it (especially GTA 4)
  5. NFS shift, Dead Space, Crysis Warhead, Avatar, God Father 2 and the latest upcoming games.

    One more question, if I upgrade my CPU then can I run all the games at max with your suggested HD 5570 card and also please suggest a suitable CPU (socket LGA 775)
  6. so, will this configuration will be good enough to play all games at 1280*1024 resolution at max settings?

    Pentium D 2.8 GHZ
    3 GB DDR 2 RAM
    500 GB HD Drive
    XFX nforce 630i motherboard (PCIE 1.0)
    1GB ATI HD 5770 Graphics Card (2.0)

    Please reply ASAP

    I will upgrade my processor later. But for now will this do
  7. Your processor will be a bottleneck until you upgrade.
  8. I have a geforce 9500 gt 1gb now. How many times faster is the HD 5770 from my 9500 GT
  9. You could get an E7500. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115056&cm_re=intel_E7500-_-19-115-056-_-Product for $112. i have this one and it's fast AS HELL. Cheap and cool, very overclockable... The stock cooler is hard to install as you may read in a bunch of this processor reviews but this is one of the best LGA775 for the money. I checked, your motherboard is compatible with this one (=. E7500 + 5770 = you won't have to upgrade for a while buddy (=
  10. But will a HD 5770 (2.0 or 2.1 card) run at full speed on a 1.0 a slot (630i/7100 mob) or will it slow down
