Answer fast please I really need to know if i'm doing a good purchase. m 0 l mamailo October 19, 2011 1:57:35 AM In paper PCI-e 2.0 is backwards compatible. There is a report here and there of problems but are mostly to faulty or out of specifications components (due use over time). m 0 l ardi_18 October 19, 2011 2:00:11 AM mamailo said:In paper PCI-e 2.0 is backwards compatible.

So my graphics should work with my motherboard INTEL DG4WV? m 0 l mamailo October 20, 2011 1:59:37 AM It should. I have read the docs at intel site and even BIOS has not adresses issues with PCI-E 1.1. A PCI-e 2.0 card will adjust itself to PCI-e 1.1. Technicaly it will never percive the needed electronics to active the 2.0 advantages. m 0 l iam2thecrowe a c 177 U Graphics card October 20, 2011 10:17:50 AM yes pcie slots are all compatable, the problem comes with SOME older BIOS's that dont know how to initialise the display with newer 2.1 cards. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
