  1. If you are referring to the PCI Express x16 slot, the GeForce 7100/nForce 630i chipset definitely isn't 2.0 or newer. You can install a new video card as they usually are backward compatible.
  2. So, probably you can advise me what to put there, I mean DDDR5 with 2.0 or 2.1 video cards, right????
  3. What CPU is installed? What's the purpose of the video card and what's your budget? If your CPU is fast enough for gaming, then check Best Graphics Cards For The Money: December 2011 at http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fastest-graphics-card-radeon-geforce,3085.html. For it's cost, a Radeon HD 5770/6770 is a good option.
  4. Ok, I have Intel Pentium Dual-Core 2.4, the video card is for gaming like Gothic 4 or battlefield 3, and the budget is 200 dollars. For example is this card ok for this motherboard: SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card???????
  5. It should be fine, but that system is underpowered for gaming.
  6. I know, I should put a power supply right????
  7. I meant that a dual core isn't very powerful for gaming.
  8. So, what processor do you think is gonna work on this motherboard, I mean I know the socket, but I read that this motherboard can take only 2.4 dual core, is it true or I can put whatever I want it's just have to be for my socket?????
  9. And also you didn't answer me does it matter at all what ouput 2.0 or 2.1 do you have when you try to put a videocard in there??????? The question is I still can't find anything about what output in here. It's not like I don't believe you, it's just a concept for me now. WHY I CAN'T FIND EXACTLY FOR THIS MOTHERBOARD?????
  10. What do you mean by "ouput 2.0 or 2.1"? If you are referring to the PCI Express x16 slot, it can only be 1.0 or 1.1 on that older system. Read the "History and revisions" section at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_2.0. However a PCI Express 2.0 video card should work.

    That motherboard is made by Foxconn to HP's specifications and it should be considered as an HP motherboard. You should also have provided the model number of your system. Determining that the PCI Express slot isn't 2.0 is relatively easy. That motherboard is based on the nForce 630i chipset which was released before the PCI Express 2.0 specifications.

    Check the Processor upgrade information. The fastest supported processor is the Intel Core 2 Duo (Wolfsdale) E8600. However they still are expensive and not really worth it over the E8400. Upgrade to an E8400 if you can find one at a decent price (less than $100).
