replacing PSU and GPU in GW PC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
putting this PSU in a gt5426E and wanting to put in a graphics card that runs WoW 1080p. Will PCI-E run a PCI-E 2.0 graphics card?

It will work, no worries. An advice about the PSU, unless you plan on getting a Geforce GTX580 that PSU is far too powerful. It would run below 20% rated power most of the time with very bad efficiency (80+ guarantees good efficiency between 20 and 100% of the rated power). Unless you plan a very powerful rig I advice you a cheaper and more efficient Antec Green 400W or similar.

btw, did you mean everything would work, even the pci-e 2.0 card in the pci-e 1.0 slot?
post #5 of 5
Yes the PCIe 2.0 card will work in the 1.0 Slots just at 1.0 speed which will be fine.
