Hi All,

I'm planning to upgrade my HD 5750 with a GTX 660 ti. :bounce: 
But just before the purchase, i saw that GTX 660 ti is a PCIe 3.0 card :o  . My mobo is having PCIe 2.0 slot. So will the GTX 660 ti run in my system??? :(

These cards are backwards compatible, you just will not get the full bandwidth that the card is capable of :)

Yes. The PCI-E thingy is all backwards compatible. I'm also positive that the card will run normally without any restriction regarding bandwidth when you have a PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot (make sure it runs at x16).

Short answer. Yes, however I would worry more about your CPU and power supply. I hope your cpu wouldn't bottleneck your new card and that your power supply is sufficient.

I have the same idea to upgrade my GPU to GTX 660 TI :D 

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8Ghz
12GB (2x4GB and 2x2GB) Kingston HyperX DDR3 RAM (1600 MHz)
asrock extreme 3 890gx
Corsair 800W PSU

But I'm not worried that it will burn my CPU, and if I think the CPU is too slow after 660 TI, then I just have to overclock it a LITTLE bit
