Hello every body this is my first post here.. I want to know about my motherboard's PCI express version , my motherboard

as I don't have 10 reputation so I am providing image link here


I have PCI express slot and I want to upgrade it to MSI NVIDIA N630GT-MD4GD3 4 GB DDR3 Graphic card.. this GPU has PCI exp version 2.

Here in my city,the shopkeeper said that we have to check if the PCI express of my board is compatible to that GPU but I want to purchase it from flipkart because they sell it for less money (sorry for bad English :/)

I mailed to my computers company (Acer) but they didn't reply to any of my mail so my friend told me about Super User.

possible duplicate of PCI-Express 2.0 backwards compatibility? – gronostaj Aug 2 '13 at 12:59

According to the Manufacturer's website it appears your board supports PCI Express X16 in the Orange slot. But your manufacturer's says you support PCI Express Lite which is a label I have not seen before. Although looking at the picture provided by the manufacturer, it appears you have a full length PCI-Ex channel, but I can't find any indication that your board supports PCI Ex 2.0. Even without 2.0, you can still run the card, as 2.0 and 1.0 is generally backwards compatible on both cards and boards, although some users have reported issues.
