Which PCi-E 1.0 GPU?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have a relatively dated computer that is sturdy enough for browsing etc but lacks a proper graphics card. However the motherboard is so old it only has PCi-E 1.0 slots. Thus im limited to PCi-E 1.0 cards. Id like to know what the best PCi-E 1.0 cards that are available are. I might get one cheap on eBay im thinking.

My current specs are:

Mobo: MSI MS-7319 a dated Medion brand OEM mobo
CPU: Intel Core2Duo at 2.1ghz
RAM: 2GB ddr2
GPU: nVidia Quadro FX 540. It had a Medion branded nVidia GS7850 but that fried.

Any recommendations on PCi-E 1.0 cards?

PCI-e 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.0. Anything will work pretty much.

Oh, i didnt know 2.0 worked in 1.0. Thats pretty cool.

My limit is pretty much any good budget card. It wont be alot of money anyway. Maybe £50-£100. Its for my little kid brother who wants to play maybe TF2, Lotro Fallout 3. Games of that calibre. Obviously it isnt going to eat Crysis 2 for breakfast with that CPU and ram but the ATI 5750 or 5770 might suffice? Or it might be overkill? Lol.

I third the 5770, i wouldve bought it if it wasnt out of stock at the local pc shops.
There might be a slight bottleneck but you can always overclock that core2
