PCIe 3.0 is twice as fast as PCIe 2.0, eg PCIe 3.0 running at x8 is the same as PCIe 2.0 running at x16. Current GPU's do not saturate the lane at PCIe 2.0 x16, so you'll be fine. | Report abuse ananthram3 January 5, 2013 2:24:20 PM Best answer selected by ananthram3. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Will PCI-E 2.0 x16 Mobo supports PCI-E 3.0 X 16 Graphic Card ???> Related ressources: ForumWhy should i get PCI-E x16 3.0 motherboard instead of 2.0 ?
