ya but these are built for pci-e 2.0, and the 650i is only capabke of 8x speed, im sure hel want 16x speed for those monsters, because im guessing pci-e 2.0 is like 32x

bah.. i highly doubt the card can use all the bandwidth.. the gtx and ultra can't even do so.. so no need to worry

and 680i isnt even pci-e 2.0 either anyway
