Im just wondering will the Asus P8Z68-V lx be able to run a GTX 660 TI OC 2GB card. Reason for this is it is a 3.0 pci card and my mobo is 2.0. Just wondering would it be backwards comparable and would run easily? Also pairing it with a 650 PSU should be ok?
no problem what so ever. PCI 3.0 cards a fully compatible with PCI 2.0 motherboards. PCI Express 3.0
PCI Express 3.0 Base specification revision 3.0 was made available in November 2010, after multiple delays. In August 2007, PCI-SIG announced that PCI Express 3.0 would carry a bit rate of 8 gigatransfers per second (GT/s), and that it would be backward compatible with existing PCIe implementations.
and yes a 650 watt PSU is fine.
