Gtx 570 on PCIE 1.0 16x

I am curious if a single 570 gtx will use more bandwidth then a pcie1.016x lane can offer ?? i have been trying to look online but cant seem to find any info on the two comparing. I am also using a q6600 oc'd to 3.6ghz. I am hoping the cpu will get by i know it will be a squeeze!

  1. Sure it wont have the optimal bandwith to give you the best performance out of your card but it will still perform well , your cpu is overclocked so it will have enough power to push the card without too much bottlenecking. Make sure also that you have a good amount of ram in your system.
  2. putting the gtx 570 on 1.0 x16 bottleneck your card performance it won't give you the reap power of that card just like you will feeling the gt series performance.
  3. I have Patriot
    Extreme Performance Gaming Series DDR2 8GB (4 x 2GB) PC2-6400 Enhanced Latency Kit, Corsair TX750W V2, 1TB western digital caviar black 7200rpm. Mobo is the Asus P5K Deluxe wifi-ap. Just curious though if the 570 is going to have some bottleneck on a pcie 1.0 16x lane then am i better off on getting a 560 ti which woud consume less bandwidth ? Also how much % wise would i be loosing in performance out of the card running on last gen lane ?
  4. about 25 to 30% loss in performance of gtx 560ti..

    No, you're right and pro-gamer is wrong.
  8. okay so then i should be fine with a 570 gtx without significant performance loss ? just want to make sure im getting the best card i can get with pretty much pushing this mobo to its last limbs before i have to upgrade.

    Even with your system, the 570 will still perform well
