Putting a PCI Express 2.0 in a Dell M52 Tags: Graphics Cards Dell PCI Express Graphics Last response: October 30, 2010 6:16 PM in Graphics & Displays Share HarpJim October 30, 2010 4:57:53 PM Hi folks! I just bought a Dell M52 for my girlfriend and I'm currently looking for a good video card to put in. After some research I'd start considering a Radeon HD 5570, mainly for her low power consumption and good average game performance for a card under 100$. As stated in the spec sheet, the M52 have a PCI Express x1 slot. According to what I red, a PCI Express 2.0 card would fit in a PCI Express 1.0 slot but would not perform at her maximum capacity. Could someone tell me it my information is good and if it would be ok to put a Radeon HD 5570 in a Dell M52? Here is the link to the spec sheet of the M52 http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?... and the kind of card I would buy http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

I guess I'll have to wait until it arrives and check in to make sure everything is fine... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
