    I was looking at this.


    I only have one PCI-E slot. So I can't do SLI and I won't be upgrading my motherboard for a while.
    I want to go with NVIDIA unless you can convince me otherwise.
    I want it to be $275 or under.

    They both look nice. I'm considering going with an ATI card even though I'm not too fond of them.

    If you are asking if a 2.0 card will work in a regular PCI-E slot, yes.
