I have the GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H, and the i3-3220 Ivy Bridge CPU all along with the NVidia GTX 760 (Gigabyte 3X Version) and everything says it should be PCI-E 3.0 but GPU-Z says it's 2.0. I have changed it to gen 3 in the BIOS and then it says @PCI-E 1.1?

If someone could tell me how to bump it to PCI-E 3.0 somehow that would be awesome. Thanks guys.

The i3-3220 Ivy Bridge only supports PCIe 2.0 - not 3.0 like the I5 or I7

^ That
Also for what your doing it doesnt matter anyway. Graphics cards are nowhere near saturating Gen2 8x bandwidth, so running in Gen2 isnt going to have any real performance impact on gaming.

Well, thank you guys. I knew it didn't really impact much performance wise, but I just didn't want it to have any future effects. Thanks :)
