I am Wandering weather my motherboard is compatible with the new Nvidia 9800 GPU's

From a number of difference sources (one being wikipedia) it says that some of the 9800 GPU's supports both PCI Express 2.0 and x16 is this true?
Here is the link to the page

Does the motherboard I currently have support PCI Express 2.0?

Yeah for sure theyll work fine.

The motherboard you currently have DOES NOT support PCI-e2.0... although the 9000 series will still work with your board as they are PCI-e1.1 backwards compatible

I agree. I currently own the P5N-E SLI. Great board but as said, only has the PCI-E 1.1. The card will work fine, but it may be slightly capped as far as performance. I remember Tom's has an article comparing the difference you'll see between PCI-E 2.0 and 1.1. I think at the time, there was only something like 2-5% difference in performance.

Still a great board. With the latest BIOS, it'll take the 8000 series dual-core Penryn's.

Okay thanks as long as it doesnt make that much of a performance difference, also i think the 8800 GT has Hyrbrid technology right?
If so would it work if I got a 9800 at end of year and and 8800 and put them together on same motherboard or not?

If it wouldn't work wont matter
Thanks for the reply's =D

I think youll find the hybrid tech is designed for intergrated GPU and low end GPU's... Currently i dont think there is any plans from NVIDIA to be able to mix and match high end cards ... only AMD/ATI do this at the moment
