  1. it means that you have a card that is pci-e 3 running on a pci-e 1.1 slot.

    bandwidth is still ok since the 7850 isnt too high performing to saturate the pci-e 1.1 bus. you will see a performance increase when you go to pci-e 3 motherboards but the performance as of now is ok
  2. you would be geting 90% of your card performance nothing to worry what is your processor if you have such a old board
  3. Intelcore 2 duo e8400 3.0 ghz to 3.8 ghz
