Hi, i've been looking around the forum for this topic and many people say that PCIE 2.1 can fit into 1.0 but that some motherboards are not compatible with them. My motherboard is
P5G41T-M LE, is this motherboard compatible with 2.1?
THANK YOU GUYS!!!

Most likely without being 100% sure, based on the fact that there are several BIOS updates since the issue got known and the board is from late 2009 which if I remember correctly was about the time the HD5xxx got released as the first ver 2.1 cards.
