Thinking of buying MS! PCI Express 2.1 DDR3 1 GB ATI 5550 card at Newegg to power a Compac Athlon 64 with 2.5 GB memory for a HTPC setup. Motherboard says MA- 7184 ver. 1.0 does anyone know if their are compatability issues with this 2.1 PCI card and my motherboard?

I have heard that PCI-E 2.1 cards don't like 1.0 slots. 2.0 cards should have less potential issues. You may want to check out those.
