Re: computer

What is a 128mb pci express slot? Can you provide a link to the specs of a motherboard that has one.

Note: Mb = Megabit, mb = millibit (like mm = millimeter). So 128 millibit = 0.128 bit. That's not much.

They Are Backwards Compatible, But....

..sometimes the X16 cards won't fit in the smaller slots, say in a 4x slot, sometimes they will, (you'll have to test whether there's room) but most importantly, if it fits, the performance will only be at the slower slot's speed.

Hope this helps.

What are you talking about?

Are you talking about the speed of the slot?

Are you talking about the amount of ram on the video card?

As asked above post a link to this mobo perhaps then your post might make sense.

MB=mega byte.....GB=giga byte.
If you change that B to b then your talking about bits.
