  1. Hey guys and gals,

    I bought this mobo back in July and have not used it yet. It's the A1 680ISLI and I am not sure if It supports the new PCI 2.0 interface. Any suggestions/Answers???

    The 8800GT should be a PCI-e x16 interface, so as long as the mobo has that then you'll be fine.

    Basically everything you can get these days has PCI-e x16 on it so it will most likely be ok ;)

    If you're not sure, google for pictures and compare what you have on the board.

    Yea your right dave but the 8800GT has a PCI-e 2.0 x16 interface. The pic of the Card looks like it would be fine with my mobo but the whole new PCI-E 2.0 specification confuses me a smudge lol.

    I dont want to buy a card that my current mobo does not support.:(
     
  4. too many people are getting screwed up by the 2.0 bullcrap.

    it uses the same slot. the 2.0 is just a reference the amount of power being consumed and the amount of information being transported. a 2.0 card will work just fine in a pci-e 16x slot.
