More about radeon 7870
  1. yes pcie is backwards compatible
  2. Yes this motherboard will support your 7870 normally, there will be no performance difference over a 3.0 slot, (at least for now this should change when Ivy Bridge is released).

    yes that asus gpu is very good, and will work flawlessly, you can buy both they will work perferctly, good gaming xD.
  3. Yeah it'll run fine on pice 2.
  4. Im about to ask the same question, Im thinking to build a new tower in Dec 12. And im interesting in Bulldozer (AMD CPU), however atm most mob that support AMD FX is only run on PCI express 2.0.
