PCI-e 2.0 cards (like the GT 240) are 100% compatible with the PCI-e 1.0/1.1 slot. It's only the PCI-e 2.1 cards (Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 series) that might have compatibility issues with the PCI-e 1.0/1.1 slot. Syaron May 8, 2012 12:42:28 PM Yes i read they are cross compatible but since data rate is half that of 2.0 i was worried about bottlenecking Syaron May 8, 2012 1:04:32 PM anyway thanks I have 1 more doubt,, my mobo is of micro ATX type so should i worry about dimensions of the card??
