Just bought a basic configuration of a Dell Vostro 460 Mini Tower and I am looking to upgrade the graphics card to a GTX 460. I know I need to upgrade the power supply but I was wondering if anybody new of any other problems I might run into? thanks

If the graphics card requires a 2.1 PCIE slot.. but you only have a 2.0 PCI slot (like many old-ish dell mobo's).. then won't you be in trouble? Because I'm in that sort of situation right now. lol

There's no difference between PCI-E 2.0 and 2.1 for Nvidia cards, and I'm skeptical as to whether there's any difference for AMD cards either. No video card anywhere "requires" any type of PCI-E slot; the PCI-E spec is near-perfectly backwards AND forwards compatible.
