I was wanting to buy a new gcard and found a cheap hd4550 http://pbtech.co.nz/index.php?item=VGASAP4551 description says it supports pci-e 2.0 my 945gtp mobo's manual says pci-e x16, will the card work on it?
manual for my mobo can be found here http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-020725.htm

From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_2.0):

CIe 2.0 motherboard slots are backward compatible with PCIe v1.x. PCIe 2.0 cards have good backward compatibility, new PCIe 2.0 graphics cards are compatible with PCIe 1.1 motherboards, meaning that they will run on them using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v 2.0 will be able to work with the other being v 1.1 or v 1.0.

Hope that helps :thumbs:.
