    Will a PCI-E x8 2.0 card work in a PCI-E x16 1.1 slot?


    I just ordered a new video card, the Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 LP, but then I saw on the gigabyte website that it's PCI-E x8 2.0. That will work on a PCI-E x16 1.1 slot, right?

    Video card: GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce(R) 700 Series - GV-N710D3-2GL
    My motherboard: HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Motherboard Specifications, MS-7525 (Boston) | HP(R) Customer Support

    Yes, it should. It will run at the slower speed.

    It'll work. There will be slow downs but it is very unnoticeable.

Here is something I recently found out. I have tired this and it works. You can use a PCIe x1 card, or a PCIe x4 card in a PCIe x16 slot. They work fine. So if you think you are short of PCI-e slots, you may not be. A shorter PCIe card works fine...
