My motherboard is a Dell Inc. 0M017G
I think it has one PCI 2.0 slot..
I was just about to order this graphics card: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004XANON8/ref=s9_si...

But I think this is a PCI 2.1 card, I remember someone telling me that a 2.1 PCIE slot card is backwards compatible, so I wanted to make sure before I buy something so I don't regret the outcome. Will the graphics card work fine with the motherboard?
Thanks in advance.

P.s. Here is a picture that I took of my motherboard, not that it helps much :??:

Also please let us know your target budget level.

I looked at your picture but could not see the graphics card slot since a card is now installed. What card do you have now? How is it working for you - what are the deficiencies you are now experienceing?

PCIe slots are backwards compatible with earlier PCIe slots - but these are different than the much earlier "PCI slot" - so you hvae to be careful and differentiate between PCI and PCIe slots.

You can learn more about PCI and PCIe slots - and how to upgrade your system in general - including identifying your wants and system requirements, at:

However, if you provide the info requested by mute20 it should enable people here to help you with the system requirements - but you still need to provide the information requested about your wants and preferences.

This is what Speccy figured out:
http://www.mediafire.com/?nahpt0wotz3l1on

It is in a text file as there was way too much text.

I want to mainly play games like GTA IV and Black Ops on around high settings (not ultra high).
I also want to play some smooth Crysis 2.

This is why I badly want the ASUS 6570 as my power suply is only 250W and it's the best low profile card for my case as it is a slim line case.
Thanks guys, you are a great help!! :D

I will be running stuff like web browsers and movies etc. at 1920 x 1080..
But I will be running games at 1280 x 720 and sometimes a little higher.
Thanks.

PCI-E 1.0 slots sometimes have issues with 2.1 cards but 2.0 slots should be fine.

Is there anything else on my Speccy sheet that i should be worried about though?
I'm pretty sure I have a PCIe 2.0 slot.

Thanks for replying, my slot is a PCIe x16 2.0 slot.
On another forum, a member who speclialises in DELL has told me that it will work fine, even with my crap PSU lol
What's your verdict?

I agree, based on this THG review which shows total system draw under load at 126w.

The rest of the article might interest you as well.


But do you think there will be any problems with the two working together?
What about the PCIe slot and such my friend?

Yes that ASUS 6570 should work fine in your system.
