Link speed will be halved, but apparently it has very little effect on performance. Helltech a c 153 U Graphics card August 31, 2010 8:42:48 PM Yes they will work just fine. It could be beneficial to update your BIOS to the latest rev before hand, however. Just stay away from 2.1 cards, they are sometimes iffy in 1.0 slots, but 2.0 are fine. Can't find your answer ?

Get the answer Andon48 September 1, 2010 4:27:18 PM Yes, I actually have a brother in law running a Sapphire rev. 2.1 HD5770 in his crappy nforce 630i motherboard with a rev. 1.0 pci slot and it works fine. It works on his but that doesn't mean you couldn't have problems with another board or card. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
