Ok so there is a lot of buzz about pci-e 3.0? I am planning on buying the EVGA X58 Classified 3 way SLI motherboard and I am planning on getting the new Geforce 300 or 400 series (whatever they name it) cards to put in this motherboard. Will these cards be for pci-e 3.0 or also for the 2.1 that this motherboard has.

Second if they do fit into a Pci-e x16 2.0 slot...will i see a huge decrease in performance from the cards? Any and all help is greatly appreciated thank you.

PCI-E2.0x16 only bottlenecks extreme SSD setups; you'll be fine graphics-wise.

No problem. Enjoy your new system. From the cooling alone I have a strong feeling it is going to be awesome :bounce:
