Don't fill our users up with false information please.
The correct answer is, this generation of cards barely saturates the PCI-E 3.0 bus BUT if you want to ever SLI or Crossfire you want a Z77 board and IB CPU to have the dual 8x 3.0. If you got SLI 680s and went with a Z68 and 2500k the dual PCI-E 2.0 8x slots will actually bottleneck your cards. PCI-E 3.0 in dual 8x mode is the same as dual PCI-E 2.0 16x meaning there wont be any bottleneck.
If you just want a single card and never plan to SLI then all of this information is moot. Just putting it out there........again.
