PCI 2.0 in a x16 slot

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

Im thinking about purchasing a new gfx card, and wondering how much of a performance decay that would have not having a dedicated 2.0 PCI slot? I have a regular x16 slot. Thinking about a 260 core 216 SSC or a 4870 1GB...leaning with a 4870...but I wanna give nVidia a run...always had ATI...

Yeah, you won't notice any difference unless you get a really high-end card (4870x2).

I think he meant PCI-E 2.0 card on a PCI-E 1.0 slot. You won't notice any difference.
