Hey guys,

I know I have an older system (don't get me started), but I was wondering if anyone knew if the GTX 570 would work on my motherboard.
It's the M2N-SLI Deluxe. It has the nForce 570 AMD chipset on it.
I know PCI-E is backwards and forwards compatible, but I don't know if my chipset will cause problems with it.

Thanks!

It should be fine. The old PCI-E slot will likely limit the card very slightly, about 2%.

Oh. I thought it would be significantly more. Should I look into a 2.1 card instead? Just to make sure I have the latest and greatest for when I do upgrade?

jyjjy, is right.

A PCIe x8 slot would be equivalent to a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot.

As of recent testing on Tom's, you'd lose UP TO 4% with a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot.

Actually PCI-E 2.1 cards sometimes have some issues with 1.0 slots so you should avoid them.
