Exclamation video card compatibility...

Would a PCIE 2.0 x16 gtx 570 run on a motherboard that may possibly only support x8 cards?

My System Specs

Default

x8 refers to the bandwidth within the pci-e slot. x16 is full bandwidth, x8 is half

and yes it will, but you MIGHT notice a small loss in performance due to this bandwidth limitation
