Hello,

Looking at basing a new system on a Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Mobo with a sandybridge i5 2500k cpu. The cpu is obviously 32nm, however the mobo spec states that the PCIE x16 3.0 slot will only support up to 2.0 standard when an intel 32nm cpu is installed.

Does this mean that i am only able to install a PCIE 2.0 standard card or will a PCIE 3.0 standard card still work??

3.0 is backwards compatible.

Have fun.
