  1. 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
  2. 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

    my budget is around 100$
  7. HD 4850 is the best choice, but it may be bottlenecked because of your CPU.
