So does PCI-E 2.0 (3870) run on our current mobos?....
....say mine for instance?
No, PCE-I 2.0 cards won't work in PCI-E 1.0 slot. But if you're talking about PCI-E 2.0, then it will work in PCI-E 1.0 slot.
We know what you meant Hookey, so yes.
Dont be a dickhead about a typing error
Are you sure?? I thought the PCI-E 2.0 cards WERE backwards compatible.
me too i want to be sure, as my 7900gs is now up for sale.
of course it works
yes it will work, a pci-e 2.0 card will work in any pci-e 1.0 slot, but of course only at 1.0 speeds. a 1.0 card works in a 2.0 slot too, but only at 1.0 speed
Did a little experiment:
It took ~5 seconds to google an answer to this. (searchwords: "pcie 2.0 compatible")
OR 10 seconds to search the forum.
IMO, Kasparz's reply was perfectly appropriate.
Yes, i'm sure what i'm talking about.
I thought you needed pci-e 1.1 to run pci-e 2.0 cards.. But p965 has pci-e 1.1, so there isn't any problems.
TBH, I thought it would, but its always better to make a post on TPU because that way others that may be wondering about the same thing can see the answer also!
Well your a d!ckhead too! He knew I had made a typing error, yet decided to act like an idiot....and your just following the leader!
Being smart and precise is called dickhead these days? Oh dear, oh.
No, but being an asshole is.
It wasnt me being a n00b, I made an error whilst typing too fast (it happens to everyone) But you were just being a smartass and trying to look clever! Everyone else knew what I meant and so did you!
