Nvidia new GPUs(7xx series?) on PCIe 2.0?


As the title says, is there any info on if the new series of GPUs 7xx(assuming they continue with the "model number" trends) will run(read: reach near-maximum capacity) on PCIe 2.0 still?

My current PC:

ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution
i5-2500k @ 4.3 GHz
ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II 1.5GB
Kingston HyperX 1333 MHz 2x 4GB
OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD
WD Caviar Black 1GB 7200RPM
Corsair 750W 750TX

Just wondering, I would have to probably replace CPU, MoBo, GPU and RAM then :/

  1. PCIe is both forward and backwards compatible, so you should be fine. Unless it comes out on PCIe 4.0, which will be unlikely.
  2. So there shouldn't be any issues of my MoBo being the bottleneck, that's good. Might snatch a 770(or equivalent to current 670) somewhere near the summer next year and be ready for Battlefield 4 <3
  3. since the GTX 600 series are backwards compatible with PCIe 1.0, i would assume that the 700 series will be backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0
  4. since the motherboard has PCI-E x16 slot, as long as the graphics card you want to use belongs to PCI-E x16 interface, generally speaking, you can use the graphics card in your MB without problems .there will be just different in the frames transporting speed to the card.
