Simple question: is PCI-E 2.0 Backward capablie?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is PCI-E 2.0 Backward capable with the older PCI-E setups?

I'm planing to upgrade my cards soon, to the 200 GTX series.. oh, also, is it SLI compatible with the 680I?

All 680i's are compatible with SLI.
PCI-E x16 are all interchangeable.
