PLEASE HELP!!

I have recently purchased a HD Radeon 7750 With 3.0 pci express. The computer that i have ordered also i think has a pci express 1.0, so the question is will it work?

Are 3.0 Graphic Cards compatible with 1.0 pci motherboards?


Thanks!!! :D

It should work. You can see bottlenecking due to the diffference in speed depending on the card. I don't know how much data that card pushes, but it's lower end so any bottlenecking would be less than with a high powered card, like a 79xx or a 680

Heres a link to my card - http://www.amazon.co.uk/VTX3D-Graphics-Express-DirectX-...

So even if it is 3.0 it works with an older 1.0?

no there will be near to none visable speed slowdowns if you are running on a x16 slot.

er in that case, yes, you can run your pcie 3.0 7750 on a pcie 1.0 motherboard. But it is RECOMMENDED to have at least a pcie 1.0 16x slot.
