Default PCI Express 2.0

Is this motherboard's PCI express slot 2.0? Just wondering cause I cant really find out and the card I ordered is PCI express 2.0 and I was wondering if I'd be able to get that extra bandwidth with this mobo.

Newegg.com - DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Thanks a lot.

No, the P35 chipset only supports PCI-E 1.1, but 2.0 cards are backwards compatible so you will have no problems running your gfx card in that mobo.

it doesn't matter yet considering we haven't maxed the bandwidth in x16 yet

I'm pretty sure even the 9800gx2 hasn't completely maxed out the pciex16 bandwidth. Though i could be wrong i have not seen anything yet stating this.
