What ever you do - Never Settle !!

Make sure you get an AMD GPU.

Make sure you get an AMD GPU. "Never Settle". Do your homework. 7000 series.

the hd 7000 series are all pcie 3.0
my board is pcie 2.0

wouldn't it be a waste as the card would only perform at 2.0 level?

No.. it makes no differene what so ever have pcie 2.0 as opposed to 3.

I am at 8x on each card (rather that 16x pcie 2 u would be on with one card) - not bottle knecked at all by the pcie bus
