i have an old asus PTGD1-LA motherboard a just wanted to know if i could stick an PCI-E 16x graphics card in and if it would work. the manual say this (this motherboard has one PCI express slot, which supports a 164-pin x16 interface graphics card)


just wanted to know if a regular PCI-E 16x graphics card will work in this. and if it does how much it will down grade the graphics card, if any.

thank you for any of your help
 
You can use a PCIe x16 version 2.0 card. Version 2.1 cards have had issues in older motherboards and are best avoided.
Only the highest performing modern cards would feel the difference between a version 1.x slot and 2.0 slot so basically next to nothing on performance loss.
