I'm looking for a quick and dirty video card upgrade. I am currently running with a ASUS P5K Mobo and a NVidia GeForce GTS 250. I'd like to upgrade to something like the NVidia GeForce GTX 650Ti but I'm a bit concerned about the PCIe 3.0 bus type that is says about in the specifications.
I was able to determine that the P5K has the following:
2 x PCIe x16 (blue @ x16 mode, black @ x4 or x1 mode) supports CrossFire Technology
1 x PCIe x1
3 x PCI
But this doesn't tell me if they are PCIe 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0. I did read that Video cards are backwards compliant so I gather that as long as I have a PCIe slot it 'should' work but maybe not as good as it could in a newer motherboard.
