Hello once again, community!

I'm building a setup and it has just occurred to me: Sabertooth 990FX (http://goo.gl/8nmwEs) has 2.0 PCI slots, while Radeon HD 7950 (http://goo.gl/6BQuCp) has 3.0. The question is: will the motherboard bottleneck the graphics? Is it better to get a Saberooth 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 (http://goo.gl/6Hvuyh), which has 3.0 PCI slots?

I don't know if it matters, but I'll buy an AMD FX-8350 (http://goo.gl/abkw4j) processor to go with it. :) 

Thanks in advance!
Cheers.

Does not really matter. Its like less than 2% performance difference. Near nothing.

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.
