Hello guys

Sometimes when I want to buy a graphics card I notice In the specifications (Card Bus)

Card Bus - PCI Express 3.0

other card

Card Bus - PCI Express x16 3.0

What is the difference and what better

x16 is the slot.
v3.0 is the version of the PCI Express standard.

There are also x1 and x4 slots, and earlier versions of PCI Express.

In the future there will be newer versions of PCI Express; each runs faster than the last.

Yes it would - PCI Express slots are backwards compatible - your motherboard may say it supports PCI Express 2.0 but your Graphics Card also supports that. :)
