Is there a significant performance difference between a PCI-Express 1.0
slot and a PCI-Express 2.0 slot for gaming? I am going to be using a
8800GT with one or the other, and would like to know if there is enough
performance gain to justify the $40 some extra dollars for the updated
slot. Thanks.

PCI-e x16 is enough for any single card solution so far.
