    Question ATI 6970 in a PCIe x16 1.0 slot

    Will running a 6970 in a PCIe x16 1.0 slot cause problems. I know 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.0, but will the limited bandwith affect the card?.

    Thanks for any help

    It shouldn't cause any issues at all. Even for current high-end cards, they're rarely close to being PCIe-bound in gaming workloads: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...caling/24.html
