Hi guys , my motherboard is d101ggc with 1.5 gb ddr1 ram ,450w psu and its a p4 processor.im planning to buy a Asus ATi Radeon HD 5450 DDR3 1 GB graphics card. this card's bus standard is pci express 2.1 , but my board supports only pci exprees x 16. is this card suitable for my board ? can i buy it ? please help....
Hey PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with PCI-E 1.0,so you can use it.But HD 5450 isn't a great card for gaming,so if you want to game,consider another card
Yes, 2.0 is compatible with 1.0, but 2.1 has issues with 1.0. Also, the 5450 is really weak compared to other slightly more expensive cards like the 4670 or 5570
