  1. I have an Asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard and I was wondering if it is compatible with PCI-E 2.1, as I am interested in a Gigabyte HD5670 G/Card which is of this configuration and takes its power via the board instead of a separate cable.
    The only info I can find out for the MB is the following but it doesn't seem to reveal much.
    2 x PCI Express x 16 slot for discrete graphics card
    2 x PCI Express x 1
    3 x PCI


    Thanks,
    Tom.

    Yes the Gigabyte HD5670 will work just fine in the Asus P5W DH Deluxe
