Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade the graphics card for a machine with a D975XBX desktop board, currently the Graphics are through Radeon X1650. I can't seem to find out if this board supports PCI E 2.0 graphics cards, the manual just says 'Support for multiple PCI Express Graphics Cards'; could someone help me please?

Many thanks for any help,

CW.

Hello ChiefWH,

We would like to inform you that this motherboard offers support for PCI Express* Revision 1.0a. Since PCI Express* 1.0 is backwards compatible with PCI Express* 2.0 the card should work fine but we strongly recommend confirming compatibility with the card manufacturer directly.
