PCIe 2.0 cards (8800GT) query....

Hello everyone,

Two questions:-

Are 8800GT PCIe 2.0 cards backward compatible with 1.1 or 1.0 base slots.

Has there been any issues with the P35 chipset, anyone?

thank you,

Yes they are backwards compatable.

Thank you for the response. The single slot 8800GT looked as though it would be a better option than the double slot 8800GTX, base on performance, but I wasn't sure if there would be issues with PCIe 1.1 slots on my mother board.

Any further comments from anyone would still be welcome.

As I'm sure you're aware, double slot cards exhaust the hot air straight out of the back of the case, whereas single slot cards throw it around inside and therefore require adequate case cooling.

I'd still have the 8800gt though
