So i recently bought this mother board (GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2). I also bought this graphics card (MSI N260GTX-T2D896-OCv2 GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card). My question is, does this mother board have PCIe 2.0 x16? Or is it 1.1? Also should i just go ahead and get a better MOB anyways? I have heard that this one is a bit on the weak side for this card. What do you think? Thanks.

Well ur card can work on tat mobo for sure...but like u heard , the mobo is a bit weaker...
But actually it shuldnt be much of a problem unless ur powersupply can provide enuf power for the card...
So it depends more on ur powersupply then on ur mobo...So if u have a weaker psu , first change tat, later on the mobo...
