Hi guys! :) 
So i'm buying EVGA GTX 760 Superclocked ACX Cooler, and i need help with something.
My motherboard is Asus P7P55D and i have only PCI-E 2.0 slots, so if i buy this card will i have decreased performance.
Oh, my other components are: Intel Core i5 750 2,67GHz, FSP Everesst 80+700,700W, 2x500 GB HDD, current videocard asus gtx 275, cooler master HAF 922 case. I just wanted you to know the details. :)

Card will operate at PCI-E 2.0 speed.
This will not reduce performance of the card.

No, u wont have any decreased performance because of pcie 2.0, i am using a Gigabyte GTX 760OC as we speak on a P7P55D Deluxe with a I5-760 so don't worry;)

that would only happen if u got like a 780ti or a 290x and probably u wouldnt notice it much, go ahead mate.

it might bottle neck on that cpu though? The 760 isnt a fast enough card or choke out on a pcie 2.0.......now running sli 780ti or 290/290x's that might choke.
