Closed Compatibility Question Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: April 27, 2011 7:24 PM in Graphics & Displays Share bobbyc303 April 25, 2011 12:48:19 PM Okay, I realize this is probably pretty simple but I am terrible at reading and comprehending technical specifications. Can someone tell me if this card: MSI N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card Will work in this motherboard? (Quad-Core FSB1333) Asus P5N32-E nForce 680i SLI Chipset LGA775 FSB1333 DDR2 Mainboard ? The computer itself is in good shape even for being 3 years old, I'm hoping I can drop the video card in it and gift it to my nephew for gaming. Thanks for any help.

The motherboard lists: PCI Express x16 2 x PCI Express x16 slot, support NVIDIA SLI technology, at full x16, x16 speed (blue) 1 x PCI Express x16, at x8 speed (white) PCI Express x1 1 PCI Slots 2 And the card says: nterface PCI Express 2.0 x16 So wasn't sure they would work together.

PCI-E have backward compatibility. means that card with PCI-E 2.0 interface should work with older version of PCI-E such as v1.1 or v1.0. bobbyc303 April 27, 2011 12:30:01 PM Best answer selected by bobbyc303. bobbyc303 April 27, 2011 12:30:35 PM Thanks for the explanation renz496, I've ordered my card and I'll let you all know how it turns out.
