I have an old MSI K8N Platinum SLI. I have a nVidia GF 6800 GT in there now.
I've been looking at NewEgg and there are some pretty modest cards for < $75. But the best ones are all 2.0 or 2.1 PCI-E. Will they work on an older PCI-Ex16 MB, and will I be sacrificing performance by putting a 2.0 card in my MB?
Would I be better off trying to find a used nVidia GF 8800 GTX? I've found some on eBay but I can't tell if the 8800 was PCI-E 1.0 or 2.0. It seems say both on nVidia's site. Does that mean it was compatible with the (then) newer 2.0 PCI-E but would still work on the older 1.0?
