Asus Sabertooth 990FX bottlenecks Radeon HD 7950?

Hello once again, community!

I'm building a setup and it has just occurred to me: Sabertooth 990FX ( has 2.0 PCI slots, while Radeon HD 7950 ( has 3.0. The question is: will the motherboard bottleneck the graphics? Is it better to get a Saberooth 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 (, which has 3.0 PCI slots?

I don't know if it matters, but I'll buy an AMD FX-8350 ( processor to go with it. :)

Thanks in advance!

    Does not really matter. Its like less than 2% performance difference. Near nothing.
  2. There is almost no difference with the highest end graphics cards, with a card like the 7950 there is no difference at all.

    You are good to go.
  3. Wow, fast replies! xD

    Thanks, both of you!
