    But your gpu will run at 2.0 generation bus speed which is obviously slower than 3.0

    What mobo do you use?
    it seems it dosent have a 3.0 slot?


    asus crosshair v formula it have pcie 2.0 and amd 8150 cpu
  2. windows 7 64bit on a pcie 2.0 vs windows 8 64bit on a pcie 3.0 will be about a 2-3% difference at best. this test has been done many times. its negligible and 3% will not make or break a gaming experience.

    many many people are running p67/z68 mobos that have 2.0 pcie and running sli/cf even at 8x lane speed without much slowdown.

    If you are not in the market to buy a new cpu then there is no point in changing mobos for the pcie 3.0, just put that money into a stronger gpu
  3. You will be completely fine running a GTX 760 http://amzn.to/1ayerlI on PCI-e 2.0
