Windows 7: Assurance Question

12 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Mac OS X 10.6.2 x64
PCI-E Question

All the numbers that go with PCI-(e) confuse me sometimes.

A network card that says it has a PCI-E Revision 1.1 interface would work with a Dell Inspiron 530, correct? The card in question is this one. And if you don't want to open the link, the Dell has a PCI-E 1x (36 pins), and a PCI-E 16x (164 pins).

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Hello Lloyd,

Yes, the PCI-E 1.1 (looks like x1) network card should work just fine in your PCI-E 1.0A x1 slot, and should also work in your PCI-E 1.0A x16 slot. You can try both to see what works best for you though.

PCI-E 1.1(version #) x1 (bandwidth)
