i know the specs, but will one of these adapters work with a GPU? or does it have to be PCIe Express x16 1.0?

...
using the adapter will let you attach one pcie x16 card (gpu) on a pcie x1 slot.
BUT shouldn't you already have a pcie x16 slot?
why do you need an adapter?

because i have a shitty old MoBo, with tons of normal PCI, one AGP and one PCI Express x1... And In my country there are not many AGP GPU's to choose from... :lol:

and pcie x1 but no pcie x16?? thats really strange for me
agp mobo has no pcie because that technology wasn't established when it was made
still they were able to make pcie x1 along with AGP :lol:

its not goin to handle the card...
if you plug v2.0 card into v1.0 you will see performance drop then you can just imagine what you will see here..
and this is plugged into x1 slot its gonna run in that bandwidth of x1 not x16
better get a new mobo for it...

Having an AGP port and a PCIE x1 slot does sound unlikely.
If that is actually a case it will work but the card will be limited to the bandwidth a x1 slot can provide. Basically if your goal is gaming then I wouldn't bother. If you just want a basic card for standard computer functions then it should be ok but I suspect just looking for a old, used basic AGP card would be cheaper than the adapter + a new PCIE x16 card.

i too have a mother board name asus p5kplam-in series.
now thats a serious problem in this case.
as in this motherboard, there is no pci espress x16 slot but it do have the space where it can be fixed. i mean to say that it has just metal circles and two holes that look right for screws or pegs and under it its written - pcie x16.
it also has 2 holes where grfx card is fixed. Can I install a PCI-E slot and then get a card or not? :pfff:
