Hi, I am desperately in need of a graphics card as my old one burned out. I am looking for one that would be better and more efficient in gaming than my old 9800GT. My budget,however, is about $100. I would gladly take any suggestions for a beneficial replacement. What I also hope that you can clarify to me is whether there is a any problem placing a PCI-E 3.0 card into a 1.0 slot and woukd that way the crad work more slowly than it should.
My system is:
-Intel Dual Core Processor- 2x2.8
-RAM 4GB DDR3
-Motherboard MS-7529 (PCI-E 1.0)
-Power Suply 350W
A 7750 is the card you are looking for. A 1.0 should not bottleneck your 7750. I know because I have had experience with x1 slots, and a standard 2.0 @ x1 usually bottlenecks at about a 560. Therefore as long as your 1.0 slot is x4 or higher, you should be good.
