A question about GFX card and slot compatbility..
Oct 23, 2011, 2:22 PM
I have a question about GFX card and slot compatbility..
Will the Zotac GeForce 210 (
) gfx card work properly in a PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode) slot?
What about a 1x slot?
I'm not exactly up to date with hardware stuff

It will work in both slots if you can fit it in them at reduced performance, especially in the X1 slot.

Ok thank you.
Would a 4x slot be enough to take advantage of the card's VDPAU acceleration and play HD files as if it were a x16 slot [on other words with no noticeable performance problems]?
