PCIE 2.0 vs 2.1

Can I put a PCIE 2.1x16 graphics card in a 2.0x16 motherboard slot? Is there any harm in doing this or extra power required? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Yes, you can put a 2.1 card in 2.0 slot, this won't harm anything
  2. There might be issues if you tried to put a 2.1 card in an 1.0 slot, but 2.1 in a 2.0 should be good to go.
  3. You need only ensure your Power Supply can supply the proper power for the card.

    You don't NEED to know this, but here's more information:
  4. i was wondering, if there are any MBs with PCIe 2.1 slot :lol:
