PCIe 2.0 is for the future - to support graphics cards that have more bandwidth than the ones we currently have on the market.

Blacken November 15, 2007 8:22:19 PM Feeling bad for not telling you this in the first place now that you've gone offline and are probably buying the card . PCIe x8 may bottleneck a bit, not to worry though; the picture quality and performance will still be good if this is your case.
