    I think it should but than just ask the sales people they will tell you if it works or not

    These results from Belarc don't say whether or not you have PCI Express 2.0. If you do have that, and it MUST be PCI Express 2.0, then it is compatible with that computer.

    thank you for the detailed spec run down of your computer

    all i needed was the model number Gateway GT5654

    then googled that for motherboard specs and i can say yes it supports PCI express x16

  • 1 decade ago

    pci express 2.0 is backwards compatable with pci expressx16 so your fine to get that card
