I am trying to get my 2nd pc up to scratch with a new graphics card but the m/board is a very old qdi 430 IB+ with a PCI 2.1 but i have just got a hercules ati 9000 PCI card which wants a 2.2 PCI slot, are the PCI slots like agp and only run at the slower speed or will the card not work at all, i have tried and its not liking it altho it may just be the card doesnt work!

PLEASE help asap because i wanna change it today which ever way it is
TY

just tried card in main pc and ran ok, so does anyone know if im right to believe that a 2.2 card can not run in a 2.1 slot??
I really dont wanna have to use an mx 420 card instead of a 9000

I would say that it is most likely backwards compatible, as most things are. So it shud be ok. BUt in the meantime this shud send you backt to the top and hopefukky sum1 with more kno-how will confirm
