I have an older HP computer with an X300SE video card that has died. It is in a PCI Express X16 slot.

I have a HD4350 PCI Express 2.0 X16 card available.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...10&Tpk=eah4350

Will this card work in the older PCI Express X16 slot?? (Assuming the power supply can handle it)

I don't really understand the issues of of putting a 2.0 card in the older (1.0???) slot.

Thanks
