According to ASRock's site the ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 does not have PCIe 3.0.
Is this going to cause problems for the Radeon HD 7950? (http://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/gigabyte-video-card-g...)

I'm using an FX-6300 processor.

Thanks.

IT WILL WORK FINE DONT WORRY ABOUT IT AS GFX CARDS ARE BACKWARD COMPATIBLE PCI 3.0 IS JUST THE NEWEST VERSION THAT RUNS A BIT FASTER. IN REAL LIFE YOUR CARD WONT BENEFIT FROM IT ANYWAY AS IT CANT SATURATE THE PCIe 2.0 ANYWAY :)

So just to make sure, the graphics card wont lose performance running on PCIe 2.0?
