D975XBX2 and Geforce GTX 650 Ti.

Hello.

I would like to make a upgrade, but I am able to afford only replacement of the videocard.

My rig

CPU Type - QuadCore Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700

Motherboard - Intel Bad Axe 2 D975XBX2 (Bios v2618 - 02.12.2007)

RAM - Corsair Dominator CM2X1024-6400C4D (DDR2-800)

Video Adapter - XFX GeForce 8800 GTX 768 MB (I prefer Nvidia)

Power Supply - Thermaltake Toughpower 850W

OS - Windows XP 32bit (SP3)

I was interested by the Geforce GTX 650 Ti card as read that videocards of a 650 series are compatible to PCIE 1.0 x16.

I would like to consult with you before purchase.

It is very important for me that performance of the PC shouldn't be lower than with the old videocard.

Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for joining the Desktop Board community.

The D975XBX2 is compatible with PCI Express 1.1 revision X16 speed, then PCI Express* version 1.0 should be compatible.

Intel does not have a list of tested components for your motherboard model, I would recommend checking with Nvidia http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/chat/chat_launch Live Chat for more information.
