Well, that would make sense if that's how it works. I'm not an IT guy so that's why I had to ask. So, asking if Windows 7 or Adobe Creative Suite "support" PCIe 3 is an irrelevant question then? They simply aren't required to support it so it's a moot point? They support it indirectly via the hardware then, ie mobo, chipsets, CPU, GPU etc that do support PCIe 3?
