PCI-E 2.1 Video Card on 1.0 Mobo

Hello,
Has anybody managed to run a PCI-E x16 2.1 Videocard on a PCI-E x16 1.0 Motherboard.
My Motherboard is a MSI K9 Neo V2 and I was thinking of getting the VTX3D HD5670 512MB, but I read that there will be compatability issues.
Please don't suggest other cards.
Thank you.

  1. Some motherboards got a BIOS update to tackle the issue some didn't.
  2. Yep. There are still issues. There are PCI-e 2.0 HD 5670s you know...
  3. > There are PCI-e 2.0 HD 5670s you know...

    I believe he has a PCI-E x16 1.0 Motherboard (see above).

    Did you mean to say that there are PCI-e 1.0 HD 5670s?
