Will my motherboard support this video card?
Nov 6, 2012, 12:54 AM
So, I was wondering if this PCI Express 2.0 x16 video card:
. . . will work on this motherboard:
Pretty much, I am asking if my motherboard runs has a PCI-E 2.0 x16 or a 1.0/1 (whatever it is), and if it doesn't, will it work, and if it works, will it suffer a performance dip?

That did not help very much at all. Okay, I understand that it is PCI-E 1.0, but can I use my 2.0 video card on it and what will the performance difference be if it can?

Could someone please just give me some solid facts? What kind of framerate difference could I expect with the Geforce gtx 550 ti on this motherboard?

I looked some stuff aup and I see that the video card will work with the motherboard, but what I can't find is the performance difference.
How much of a performance difference can I expect guys?

You will probably see a 2-4% fps drop. You wont notice that.
