I'm looking to get one of these cards (in particular the 2nd from right; XFX 9800 gt xxx) see here>>http://www.dabs.com/compare.aspx?&ql...137&PageMode=1
firstly is this a good card or is one of the others more suitable and secondly is there a chance it may bottleneck on my system?
Asus A8N SLi deluxe mobo (1.0 gen PCI-e x16)
AMD SKT 939 4200 Dual core pro (around 2.2 ghz)
3 gig ddr memory (Single channel)
Enermax 500w liberty psu
2x SATA HDDs
My case is fairly well cooled so hopefully heats not too much of an issue also am i right in believeing 2.0 PCI-e x16 is backwards compatible? I.e a 2.0 card will work on my 1.0 board?
