P43 vs P45

Hey ppl, I'm currently saving for a gaming rig. I've pretty much made up my mind about all the parts except the motherboard. Im going to put a single 4870 1Gb in it, but don't now if the performance gain of the P45 PCI-e 2.0 is worth the ~40 euro price difference compared to a P43 board. How much of an improvement is 2.0 in real life? Thnx in advance

  1. The performance should be very close. Even a 975X is competitive. See http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crossfire-pci-express,2095.html
