    No you don't need a PCI-e 2.0 slot but there are reports of these cards not working with some mobos. Check that out before you buy anything.

    It might be good to rip the sticker off the BFG card.

    I've heard that the BFG stickers falls off and jam the fan.

    I run a MSI 8800 GTS 512 MB on a striker extreme. The board doenst have PCI2.0 slots but the cards run fine on the mother board.

    You need PCI-e 1.1 slot, 1.0 won't work I guess, you can check this in everest or some other software.

    Hey all thanks for the responses, its jus when i looked up the card it said it needed PCI-e 2.0 which i thought was rubbish.

    are there many mobos with 2.0 support out aside from the 780i chipsets?

    oh and how do i tell if im 1.1 or 1.0 PCI-e
    im currently running a 8500GT (G86)
