PCIe 2.0 vs 3.0 4x for GT 1030 - does it make a difference?
Oct 7, 2017, 6:54 AM
Can my GT 1030 (MSI branded, Low Profile) choke on 4 lanes of PCIe 2.0, as opposed to PCIe 3.0, on which it can run at max. I have an i3-2100 and a B65 chipset.

Choke? No. It will run just fine. No worries. Proceed and have fun.
