    Is the AMD HD 5450 backward compatible with pcie v1.1 for use on older motherboards?

      Hi Folks,

      I would be
      most grateful if anyone could help with the following:

      I have a
      DELL 9200 Dimension series desktop pc which has an ATI Radeon X1300 Pro video
      card installed.

      I upgraded
      from Win XP to Win 7 x64 a few years ago and my X1300 is working fine.

      Most info
      on the web suggests that the X1300 card is not compatible with Win 10.

      I'm now
      trying to get ready to upgrade to Win 10.

      However,
      my mobo PCIe is only level 1.1 and most new graphics cards are PCI 2.0 or
      greater.so I need to find a PCIe graphics card which is advanced enough to be
      compatible with Win 10 but old enough or backward compatible right back to PCIe
      v 1.1

      I'm looking at the HD5450 as a possible solution hence the above question.

      If anybody
      has already solved this issue I would love to know which card was used.

      All help
      appreciated.

      1. Regards.
