Okay, so, I've been meaning to upgrade my graphics card for quite some time now (from onboard to something better) and my question is, is the Asus M2N68-LA (HP Name: Narra2, The model in question is the Pavilion a6110n) PCI Express 2.0 compatible? Because I've been looking around and I can't find that spec anywhere and I don't know whether or not I can get a PCI-E 2.0 card or not and I don't want to end up with a card I can't use. Any insight would be great, thanks.

So that means that is doesn't have the PCI-E 2.0 slot, it's just a PCI-E 1? And I have checked there for the specs before, I just wasn't sure if HP was specific with the labelling of the PCI-E slot.

I'm going for an EVGA GeForce 9800 GT with 512MB GDDR3. I was worried about whether or not the PCI-E x16 2.0 card would work with my motherboard, but then I read that PCI-E 2.0 was backwords compatible. So no worries now.
