Does the 6870 work with pci-e 2.0? Tags: Radeon Asus AMD PCI Express Graphics Last response: December 5, 2010 12:36 PM in Graphics & Displays Share decimate1 December 5, 2010 12:34:45 PM I've taken a look at the 6870 on the AMD website but it said that the card supports pci-e 2.1, while my ASUS P5Q Deluxe only has a pci-e 2.0 slot. So, the quesiton is that if the pci-e 2.1 card 6870 is backwards competible with a pci-e 2.0 slot? Thanks for you help.
