The only differences is their bus speed. So if you plug a PCIE 3.0 card in PCIE 2.0 slot, then you'll have 2.0 speed (5GT/s) instead of 3.0 (8GT/s). m 0 l Related resources Will a pcie 3.0 gpu fit in a pcie 2.0 slot - Forum can PCI-e 3.0 graphics cards fit in a PCI-e 2.0 slot? - Forum Pcie 3.0 card fit pcie 2.0 mobo slot? - Forum Can i fit a pci-e 3.0 in a 2.0 x16 slot ? - Forum PCI-E 3.0 fit to PCI-E 2.0 slot - Forum Can't find your answer ?
