Since I have all the compatible components for PCI-e 3.0, I just wanted to know where that benefit comes into play and if its something that is just automatic or something you have to enable in the BIOS?

Not really a benefit yet but is automatic.

Gotcha..just out of curiosity, the fact the faster transfer speeds are not being utilized yet in PCI-E yet, does that mean that it will be somewhat of an automatic boost for titles that are more demanding than current gen games? Therefore prolonging the length of time the card will be sufficient for gaming.

No, the CARDS are not capable of not saturating the PCI-e 2.0 or 3.0 bandwidth.

The games are not that bandwidth intensive either but the cards are more of the bottleneck...

So isnt that like putting an exhaust system on a Geo Metro?..Whats the point of having it on a card that can't use it? Can SLI maybe?
