So, I'm looking to upgrade my video card.

I know the new Radeon 7000's series utilizes PCIe 3.00. Where can we find what our mother board has? And, if our mother board has 2.00, what would be the drawbacks? Would it be wiser to purchase a card that runs on 2.0?

This is my motherboard, IPISB-CH2 Pegatron.

The Pegatron IPISB-CH2 motherboard uses the Intel H67 Express Chipset which supports PCI Express 2.0 Graphics.

The performance differences between a PCI-E Gen2 and PCI-E Gen3 interface is effectively nil.

See the HD 7970 PCI-E 3.0 vs PCI-E 2.0 comparison here:
