I'm having an intel DG35EC classic series motherboard. And i wanted to buy a graphic card. The graphic card requires PCI-E 3.0 bus bus standard..will my motherboard support this graphic card..will it also support PCI-E 2.1 bus standard?
what difference will it make between these standards in terms of performance?
What is PCI express x16?
More aboutgraphic card compatibility asap
It will support 3.0 one without any problems, but I there's a chance it will not work with 2.1, however.
There is almost no performance difference between them.
PCI express x16 is a slot on your motherboard.
There is no difference between PCIE 2.0 16x and 3.0 16x until you have multiple powerful GPUs (such as 3 way crossfire/sli).
PCIE2.0 and 3.0 are interchangeable, you can run a 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot (I am doing this on my PC). It simply operates at PCIE2.0 speeds, which are more than fast enough to support a single gpu.
