PCI Express 3.0 in a 2.0 Slot (Performance)

Put this in the wrong section before...

I know a PCI Express 3.0 will work in a 2.0 slot, but will there be a noticeable performance decrease that I should be worried about?

  1. no, i mean, of course it would work at full potential on 3.0, but even in 2.0 the performance will be great.
  2. When you move up to the highest end cards there is a small but noticeable difference. With lower end cards that goes away. This will answer all your questions on the subject.
