I read the sticky in the video forum AGP, PCI and PCI-Express - A Primer
and about halfway down it states this :
PCI-Express version 2.0 increases speeds to 32x which is well beyond what most computers can actually use. An important thing to note is that most video cards that are designed for 2.0 will NOT work in 1.0 slots. They will, however, work in 1.1 slots.
and then further on a post states this :
This chart on www.hardwaresecrets.com does an excellent job of explaining what type of PCI-Express slot your motherboard comes with.
(the actual link to the chart is in the article)
I cannot find help there about my motherboard's PCIe slots, nor can I at the Compaq website for my computer
I just want to know what version of the slot I have : 1.0, 1.1 or 2.0, as this will help me determine which card I want for my computer.
*** TO ADMIN : If you think this should go to the Video forum, feel free to move it there. ***
Any suggestions or answers? Thank you.
