Hello,i just bought a Dell Optiplex 380. I'd like to get an aftermarket video card for it. The tech specs. on the Dell website say that it has a PCIe X16 slot. I was wanting to know if it's a PCIe 2.0. 2.1 or just X16. Thanks

PCI-E x16 and PCI 2.0 will work fine. i would avoid the 2.1 cards since most mass PC makers don't have BIOS updates to support them on 1.0 x16 boards.
