And how slow? | Report abuse Maziar Motherboard Master July 8, 2010 8:33:27 PM Its slower, but its not anything noticeable in games(unless on extremely high resolutions like 2560x1600 with AA/AF enabled) | Report abuse megamanx00 Motherboard Authority July 8, 2010 8:33:47 PM The real world difference with either of those cards will be pretty small as far as PCI-E 1.x vs 2.0 goes. | Report abuse darkedge July 9, 2010 12:19:42 AM Thanks for the answers, I'll wait for a sale before I buy the gpu. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>PCI-E question> Related ressources: ForumThermaltake 850w PCI-E question ForumPCIe x16 x8 Question ForumPCI-e Lanes - a question .
