Hello,

I was wondering if the Sapphire Radeon R9 270 will work in PC Express 2.0? I will not be overclocking. If it is compatible, will there be performance issues?

**Video Card** | [Sapphire Radeon R9 270 2GB Dual-X Video Card](http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100365...)
**Motherboard** | [Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard](http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a99fxpr...) |

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

It will definitely work in PCI-e 2.0 :)  PCIe 3.0 is backwards compatible all the way back to 1.1. You will have no noticeable performance degradation at all :)
