Rethinking or delaying new build due to probable costs and determined Son will not need this much computer first year or two. So another option is to swap out his GTS 250 for a Quadro. Motherboard is a GA-EG45M-UD2H and I need to clarify something please. Does the statement below mean this is a 2.0 X16 slot on this motherboard?
"1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
(The PCI Express x16 slot conforms to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)"
I know this sounds stupid to ask (so go ahead and poke), but if I buy workstation card, it is important for me to clarify.
