GTX 460 1GB compatible with PCI-e 1.0?

I can't remember which company's website I was on, but it said their GTX 460 1GB was a PCI-e 2.0 card, but was compatible with PCI-e 1.1

What about 1.0?

I'm looking to upgrade within the next month or so, and the GTX 460 1GB is towards the top of my list, but my mobo only has a PCI-e 1.0 slot.

  1. What's your board ? PCI-E 2.0 cards are compatible many PCI-E 1.0 motherboards.
  2. From the published specs:

    H-RS880-uATX (Aloe)

    Manufacturer: Foxconn
    Form factor: uATX
    Chipset: AMD 785G
    Memory sockets: 4 x DDR3
    Front side bus speeds: 5200 MT/s
    Processor socket: AM3
    Expansion Slots:
    1 PCI x16 slot for graphics card
    3 PCI x1 slots
    1 PCI Express x1 minicard slot
  3. Yes it should work fine.
    I thought you have an older motherboard(like socket 939 socket ones)
  4. nvidia card work fine for all pci 1.0 x16 slot but ATI/AMD card may have trouble sometime with pci 1.0 since ATI cards are all 2.1.
  5. The GTX 460 is an nVidia chipset, not ATI. I hope it works for you because I just bought a GTX 480 SC to put in mine! Also, the specs for my system (including that mobo) say that it will handle 2.0 PCIe.. Most of the vVidias are 2.0, the AMD/ATI's are 2.1..
