Hey everyone, I have a noob question (sorry). I have this motherboard (http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?InvtId=GF6100-F-E&AID=10439518&CJPID=3793426&cm_mmc=CJ-_-2617611-_-3793426-_-Geeks.com_Gifts), and I'm thinking about purchasing an ATI Radeon 5770 Graphics Card. The card description says I need a PCI Expression 2.1 x16.

My question is will this card work on this motherboard? Thanks in advance. Smiley

All of the PCIe specs should be backwards compatible. You should be able to use any speed card with any speed board. They will be compatible, but it just won't run at the faster PCIe 2.1 speeds. Luckily, PCIe bandwidth is a non-issue for miners, and has almost zero affect on mining performance.

As long as the card will fit in your case, yeah you'll be fine. The card will stick out further than that IDE (?) port pictured on the bottom right.
