    A slight bottleneck; PCI-E 2.0 x16 only supports 5 GHz memory clock and the GTX 760 has 6,008 GHz, you won't notice much of a difference anyway. :)

    Does it mean there is no use in overclocking gtx 760 memory on pci 2.0?

    I have been told that the memory speed has nothing to do with PCIe clock. And I found people confirming that on other forums. I am quite confused right now.
