    none....most newer pci 3.0 cards still cant max out the max speed of the pci 2.0 slots yet.
  2. Not at all !!!
  3. I remember seeing this bar graph that showed speeds in 2.0 and 3.0, do you guys know where I can find it? I saw about 1.5-2.5 fps difference between 2.0 and 3.0.
    Just wanted to make sure- thx
