512Mb 8800GT Gigabyte Tags: Graphics Cards Gigabyte PCI Express Graphics Last response: January 22, 2008 2:39 AM in Graphics & Displays Share gokhan76 January 21, 2008 9:57:04 AM Hi Guys, I will be upgrading my VGA, CPU and M/B I already bought Gigabyte 512 Mb 8800GT with PCI.E 2.0 support and Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16ghz My question is does it make any difference for me to get X38 chipset if I am running single VGA. Which I dont know if I go ever SLI. Having X38 with PCI.E 2.0 port vs P35 Chipset has only PCIE1.0 does the PCI.E 2.0 will give me any performance difference with 8800GT? Thanks.
