Graphic card compatibility

I have a Intel DG35EC classic series motherboard.

Will it support the graphic card with PCI-e 2.1 bus standard?

I am currently having a 9800gt which is 2.0 bus standard.

  1. What do you mean? I don't get it :P. Your motherboard has a pci-e 2.0 expansion slots and gpu cards are backwards compatible so a 3.0 pci-e gpu card can go into a pci-e 2.0 expansion slot on the motherboard.

    It's backwards compatible so no worries.

    All the 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 non sense means is you can get higher speeds out of that slot

    For example in the future, when we have amazingly fast graphics cards, 2.0 slots will slow them down since it can't process all that data at once.

    You have nothing to worry about though, we haven't really even broken the 2.0 speeds yet. 2.1 and 3.0 boards are just getting us ready for the future and they're all completely backwards compatible.

    So your 9800 GT will be fine
