Closed Will a PCIe 3.0 card work in a PCIe x16 slot? Tags: Graphics Cards Gigabyte Graphics Last response: March 2, 2013 2:00 PM in Graphics & Displays Share UserZero March 2, 2013 12:33:31 PM Specifically, I have a Gigabyte p35 ds3p mobo, with PCIe X16 slots (x16 and x4). I found a silent graphics card - ASUS Graphics Cards HD7750-DCSL-1GD5 - but it's PCIe 3.0. As far as I can tell visually, the edge connector looks compatible. Anyone know if this will work, even in a 'degraded' mode? TIA!
