Default Re: GTX 260 and the MSI 650i Motherboard (PCIe 1.0 question)

I have a a ASUS 650i SLI and it will run one card at 16x ,but sLI it is 8x + 8X I would'nt think you would have any problem just running one card since it is 16x,but I would'nt try running two in SLI since it is just 8x ,probally would'nt get the full power out of two , but I would think you would be ok with just running the one GTX 260.I know my EVGA 680i SLI is just PCIe 1.0 and not PCIe 2.0 but it does have two true 16x slots and it runs my teo GTX 280's just fine .They is very little difference in running a GTX 280 or 260 in a PCIe 1.0 slot and a PCIe 2.0 slot.
