Default 8800GTS (G92) PCI Express 2.0 x16

Ok, so I ordered this card last night and than today I was looking at my order and just realized something...it says "PCI Express 2.0 x16".

I am running an Asus A8N-SLI Premium which has 2 PCI Express x16 ...it's not 2.0...

Let me guess...I won't be able to run it???

You will.

And you wont lose any performance for not having the 2.0 slot either.

Ok, I was just wondering...so what's with the whole new naming convention???

Sorry, I have been out of the Hardware loop for a year now...I am still stuck in the mindset of the 939 days...lol

the new pci 2.0 has a much bigger bandwidth. It will hopefully be used in the 9000 series, but it is not being utilized in the 8800. Benchmarks show it getting something like an extra 1/2 fps on average

yeah basically it has double the bandwidth and can supply twice the power to the card.

btw nice choice, I just ordered one as well and it should be here the day after tomorrow

I'm only on pci-e 1.1 as well


****actually I just noticed you're still running a single core! You're going to be majorly CPU limited....!!!!
