PCIe 1.x has 250MB/s per lane, 2.0 has 500MB/s per lane http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

You should have 2.X

"v2.x: 8 GB/s (80 GT/s)"

You have 3 threads i have seen about this, Please list your board and then the info will be easy to find.

Either way the card you are looking for will NOT be bottlenecked by ANY x16 slot.

I think it is PCI-e 1(Since PCI-E 2.0 was NOT out when the board was released). Still should not be an issue for your card of choice.

Your 8GB/s is most likely 4 in each direction.

Yep the board is model 2006 and the 2.0 std was introduced in 2007!

8GB/s??? What type is that? PCI-E v6.9? Or did you mean 8Gbps? -_-
8GBit/s = 1GB/s

OP meant this
"
The board provides the following PCI Express connectors:
• One PCI Express x16 connector supporting simultaneous transfer speeds up to 8 GBytes/sec
• One PCI Express x1 connector. The x1 interface supports simultaneous transfer speeds up to
500 MBytes/se"

But his motherboard is more likely to be v 1.1 than 2.1 looking at the motherboard's specifications.
Also, most people would probably confuse Gbps and GB/s.

PCI-E 2.1 is backward-compatible with PCI-E 1.x versions, so you should be ok with that.

Also, an HD 6670 isn't a bandwidth demanding card and shouldn't be bottlenecked by this little disadvantage.

Yes you can definitively buy that card.

Hope it helps! :)

You can but it has to be at least 1.1, and not 1.0

You can check your PCI-E version with an software like AIDA64.
