Compatibility with PCI Express x8 motherboard

I have a Gigabyte GA-M61SME-S2 motherboard, which has a PCI express x16 slot. However in the user's manual it states that motherboard supports only upto PCI Express x8 mode. I ordered a 8600GT and am worried whether its performance will be affected by this. (I'm currently using onboard graphics)

Is it safe running PCI-Express 3.0 card( Geforce GTX 650ti Boost) on Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2PT( PCI-E 1.1 ), or should i go with Geforce gtx 560ti (PCI-E 2.0). Help please...


Hello,

All cards a backwards compatible. So a PCI-E 3.0 will work in a PCI-E 1.0 Slot. You just can use a PCI-E 1.0 card in a PCI-E 3.0 Slot. To clarify you can safely go with the GTX 650ti. Happy gaming!!

Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.

Does a Foxconn 633 m02 motherboard have pci express slots?


You have a Foxconn G33M02? then you have PCI express ports, so you'll need to look at pci express video cards to fit on your pci express x16 ports (the long pci-e port, probably blue colored) on your motherboard.

No signal possible compatibility issue


Thats some nice items you have there M8!:) your machine gona rock when you done whit it!:)
And yes, the card is compatible whit your MoBo!
On your mobo you have 7 slots, 2 blue ones, they are PCI Express gen2 x16 slots , 2 white ones (the smal ones), they are 3 PCI Express gen2 x1 slots and 2 white ones (the large ones), they are 2 PCI slot, support 3.3V/ 5V PCI bus Interface.
The card you have you connect in the forst blue one, the second is if you waht to use 2 cards and drive them as crossfire.

So connect the card in the fist blue slot!

Good luck!
