It's a good question...I don't get any info. online for that board. If you go into your bios upon boot and press delete you can tweak around and find your pci settings there you will know if you have a 1st or 2nd generation 2.0 E.

Pcie is not backwards compatible and you won't get it to work on a non pci slot...

There are lots of cards to suggest...but first what is the board? ati or nvidia ??? Intel...got to know before hand.

You can use PCI-E 2.0 card in a PCI-E 1.0 slot. At $150, either 8800GT or HD3870 should be in that price tag.

Make sure your cpu and PSU are able to handle the latest GPU.

lins...why spend $150 for a card when he can just sell the mb and get a better one that has everything on it that he needs including the 2.0 slots for the same price he would pay for a $150card.

Get a new mb. you will be happier..i promise if you bought a 2.0pcie slot it would be a waste of time & money.

I have a brand new Asus Maximus Extreme...as I bought a second one when my first went bad...I sent it in to Asus it could not be fixed so they sent a new one...it's Ati crossfire though...you can still use it for one or more nvidia cards just not in sli.

$350+5shipping 48contin states.
