Hi! :hello: 

I don't mean to sound like a noob, but I figured that a forum would be the best place to ask this question ;) 

All the latest VGA cards are PCIe 2.0..... are these video cards compatible with the PCIe 1.0 slot and Vise Versa?

Thanks in advance :)

2.0 is compatable with 1.x slot, 2.1 with a 1.x slot is taking a chance weather it will work or not. Get a 2.0 card and you should be fine. Also make sure you rPSU is up to powering whatever card you chose.

Well actually, what I'm looking for is "is it OK to attach a PCI2.0 Card to a 1.0 slot...?? "..... (Trying to get a Christmas present to a friend of mine.... who has an old 8400GS! ) ;)
