ASUS A8M2N-LA = i have this desktop from a yardsale last night. i opened it up and the contents still look good. the only problem is that it doesnt have a hard drive yet and the graphics card is onboard integrated. i could find a sata hard drive for less than $30 at ebay. but i want to upgrade the graphics card. this mobo has PCIEx16 slot. is this compatible with PCI E2.0x16 graphics cards? or should i just stick to looking for PCI Ex16 graphics cards? because at ebay, most cards available are PCI E2.0x16.

please help. thanks.

  1. Pci-e 2.0 is backwards compatible with Pci-e 1.1, but it might bottleneck.
  2. oh thanks for that fast reply. im not looking for a fast graphics card anyway. just enough to run a PC and play counterstrike and call of duty on minimum resolution. im restoring it just for downloading purposes. its gonna be turned on 24/7.
    its a compaq presario from HP.
