  1. That is totally fine, the pci e 3.0 is backwards compatible with 2.0.
  2. Best answer
    It's compatible. If you are worried that you might not be getting the most out of your PCIE 3.0 GPU, don't. It wouldn't make any difference if you're using a single card only. The small difference you'll see is when you get to setup SLI or xfire.
  3. setup SLI or xfire means.
  4. SLI means linking more than 1 gpu at a time, enhancing performance greatly, it is the same with xfire, only it is for amd radeon.
  5. Using more GPUs at the same time. And yea, SLI is for Nvidia, CrossFire is for ATI/AMD. They're so competitive and proud that they don't want to use the same term. :| haha
