HP DL380 G6 as gaming system?
I have a couple of dl380 servers that I want to make a gaming system out of they have duel Xeon 8mb cache and 132Gb of ram and SCSI hdd I have read that even though these are well spec machines they may not be that great for gaming but I have them for free so if they work at all it's a plus.

My question is about video card slot it has a pci express 8x slot and I can get a 16x riser if I need to but will an 8x run a modern video card? I will also be hard to get card external power so I need one that will power from the slot with max 75watt. I was thinking about evga gtx 1050 ti card but spec say pci express 2.0 or 3.0 so will it run on pcix 8x or 16x confused about slot naming changes! Any suggestions appreciated!
