    Quite likely, considering that the PCI 2.3 specification is over seven years old.

    What kind of card do you have?

    The Creative site that I found says that "SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio" requires PCI 2.1.

    Looking at wiki about PCI gives the impression that the latest versions: 2.2, 2.3, and 3.0 mainly removed the 5V support. But if the 3.3V side would not have remained backward compatible, then way too many things would have broken. Also, it would be bad business not to make 3.0 compliant PCI today.

    Basically, if LSD says "yes" it pretty much means "yes".

    The PCI Slots would be complaint with the latest technology and would be backwards compatible with all older tech.

    Your card will work just fine if it is compatible with the board. Are you having issues, or were you just wondering before you buy the card?

    None of that ,just wondering about the bandwith. As , PCI 2.3 is faster then PCIe x1,theoreticaly.

    Ahh, ok. Well all that I am not sure of, but you likely are since you are looking into it all.
