Will card for PCI 2.1 card fit into PCI 2.3 slot?

  Tonycooper3 19:37 07 May 2005

I have an Audigy 2ZS card which is supposed to go in a PCI 2.1 compliant slot. If I buy a motherboard that has slots that will take PCI2.3, will the card fit in these - it doesn't seem to mention it in the card spec.

Any Help Appreciated.

Cheers for the reply Stuart, though to be honest I still can't really figure out from that whether or not a 2.1 card will fit in a 2.3 compliant slot

Is that guy saying they aren't backwards compatible?
