    Do you mean your MB has a spare PCI 1.0 slot, or a PCI-e 1.0 slot that your current GFX card is in?

    If the former, then no. If the later, then it depends. I think the new PCI-e 2.0 cards work in 1.0b slots. I think you only run into real problems if you start wanting to run dual 2.0 cards in 1.0 slots.

    Best bet is to google your mobo and the card you are looking at and see what info you can find.
