Galaxy GTX 660 2gb with 2.0 motherboard

Im still kinda learning about backwards compatible pci express lanes and what they can handle. like some video cards wont be bottlenecked by a 2.0 because it doesn't put out as much as a 3.0. so I was wondering if one of you could help tell me if a Galaxy GTX 660 (not TI) wont be bottlenecked by a pci express 2.0 lane.

  1. Hello sir,
    Your graphics card is compatible with a pci express 2.0 lane
    Although pci express 3.0 has higher data transfer rates,it is hardly noticeable.
    Please continue with your purchase.
