Allright so im about to buy the hd 6670 ddr5 1 gb version but! it says it needs a 2.1 pcie slot thingy, and i have a: asus m2n68-la narra 3 motherboard and i've read it only have a 1.1? I'm not sure about that but i know the hd 6670 ddr3 version will run fine because it needs a 2.0 pcie slot but it will work with an 1.1.. So my question is wil the 6670 ddr5 version work with an 1.1 pcie slot?

-Sorry for bad english :/  It's not my first language

PCIE 3.0 provides double the bandwith as PCIE 2.0 which provides double the bandwith of PCIE 1.0

You graphics card will most likely be bottlenecked by the motherboard but if your running a system that has PCIE 1.1 you might wanna consider an upgrade there aswell

It will work as all pci exp slot are of same size and are backward compaitable.
