Just make sure your PSU and case ventilation is up to the task. The 8800GTX is a fairly power hungry card and isn't as efficient with its clock throttling as newer cards. Its also only PCI-E 1.1 compatible, so the x4 slot will probably effect the performance more.

Just curious... what kind of board are you using?
IntelŪ Desktop Board DX58SO

My PSU is a Silverstone 850Watt with four +12v rails. I'm fully aware of what the G80 consumes, I ran dual 640MB GTS for a while, which I bought on launch day back in '06.

I just wasn't certain how well PhsyX performance scaled with the PCI-e bus speeds. Wasn't sure if full speed was necessary, or if an x4 slot would suffice.
