I've been wondering for a while now whether or not my card is using PCI-Express 3.0.

I have the MSI GTX 680 2GB and I've read on my motherboard's website that the processor needs to be Intel 3rd Generation. I have the i7 2600K Sandy Bridge, which is 2nd generation I think.

nVidia Inspector says something about PCI-E 3.0, but the nVidia Control Panel says PCI-E Gen 2:



What do you think?
